Why choose lithium batteries to supply your RV
One of the greatest feelings when going on holiday is not having to think about anything other than the activities planned at your destination. That is why it is important to prepare your recreational vehicle in advance of your road trip and check that everything is working in order. Most importantly, check if your battery is charged and has enough power to supply all the appliances.
But after you have checked everything, you start thinking about switching your lead-acid batteries for lithium batteries and wondering why choosing lithium batteries to supply your RV? Is it worth it?
Though it can seem overwhelming when contemplating the options, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is as difficult as you think. Let’s take a look at the advantages of choosing lithium batteries for your RV.
Benefits of RV lithium batteries
Let’s start by saying lithium batteries have a longer life span, are lightweight, maintenance-free, and charge faster than traditional lead-acid batteries. This last attribute is a great advantage as it saves you time (for example the Epsilon 12V150Ah battery can be charged from 0% to 100% in 3 hours with a 60A charger). Another huge benefit is that they are safe. Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cells are one of the safest lithium-ion chemistries.
Super B lithium batteries can be recharged thousands of times before needing to be replaced. For example, our Epsilon 12V150Ah has a cycle life of >5000 cycles (at 100% Depth of Discharge). If you opt for Super B lithium batteries, its integrated BMS and Bluetooth give you access to 24/7 information about the status of your battery. They have a low self-discharge (<3% per month), meaning that when you store your RV during the winter period and have fully charged your battery, you can be sure that when it’s time to use your recreational vehicle again, it will have enough power to take you to your next adventure.
So, are lithium RV batteries worth it?
RV lithium batteries are worth it for those RV owners who want to go campaign off-grid as much as possible. Lithium batteries give you the freedom to enjoy your RV experience for longer periods and travel countless miles more without having to charge your battery. And of course, lithium iron phosphate batteries are more environment-friendly than lead-acid batteries.
