We are pleased to announce that Solar Technology is now a distributor for LiFOS, a new and advanced lithium battery, which is set to transform off-grid energy supply to caravans, motorhomes, campervans and boats.
LiFOS delivers incredibly long-lasting power in a super lightweight package by making use of the premium in lithium battery chemistries - Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4). The battery is perfect for voltage sensitive and high cycling applications including leisure, commercial and off grid renewable energy.
Weighing in at just 7.8kg, LiFOS is 77% lighter than a good quality 120Ah lead acid battery equivalent which would tip the scales at around 34kg. Plus at 257.5mm long, 190mm high and 175mm wide, it’s compact enough to fit into the smallest of storage spaces.
The Battery Management System (BMS) built into LiFOS helps ensure it can be charged and discharged up to six times more than alternative options so the price per cycle is just 25 pence, around half the cost of other comparable lead acid or gel batteries*.
Monitoring the state of charge in the LiFOS battery is also easy with the free to download Apple and Android Bluetooth-enabled app. Once connected to a smart device, the app will also send users a reminder to put LiFOS on charge once the battery has been discharged to 30%, further helping to prolonging the battery’s life.
For optimum flexibility, LiFOS is fitted with removable terminal posts so that the ring terminals can be connected directly to the terminal plates. There is also the option of joining two LiFOS batteries in parallel to create double the (AH) capacity.
LiFOS has a huge operating temperature range of -20 to +60 °C and it can be used in any orientation (eg on its side), although on its base will give the best performance. As LiFOS does not emit noxious gases thanks to its lithium iron phosphate chemistry, it does not need to be housed in a specially vented chamber
LiFOS retails at £699 and for more information and stockists visit www.lifos.co.uk.
