LIFOS 68ah Lithium Battery equivalent to 120Ah lead acid
Product Code: STILi68
Lifos 68ah Lithium Battery
The LiFOS 68Ah Lithium Battery, which is equivalent to a 120Ah leisure lead
acid battery, is an advanced battery using Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4)
which delivers reliable and safe power in virtually all conditions. Perfect for
voltage sensitive and high cycling applications including leisure, commercial
and off grid renewable energy installations. Up to x4 LiFOS V2 batteries can be
connected in parallel or series to create a power bank of up to 272Ah or 48V.
LiFOS has a 5-year warranty and its integral Battery Management System (BMS) guarantees its Depth of Discharge (DOD) does not exceed 90%, thus ensuring that LiFOS gives no less than 2750 charge and discharge cycles – see graph on back page. Further, if LiFOS is only partially discharged to 50% of its capacity, for example, the number of times it can be charged and discharged jumps to 5000 (+13yrs). All batteries have a DOD. It’s typical to expect a battery using lead acid and gel compounds to give a 50% DOD. This means if, for example, such a battery is rated at 100Ah, it will only provide usable power of 50Ah. LiFOS has a 90% DOD, providing 61.2Ah of usable power, which means that to replicate the available power provided by LiFOS, a +120Ah lead acid or gel battery would be needed.
LiFOS has uniquely designed hardware/software integrated into each battery which allows it to:
Operate heavy loads up to 1000w (e.g. caravan motor movers);
Protect the battery from deep discharging;
Be charged by any mains charger (not just a special lithium charger);
Speed up charging times, whether being powered by mains or solar;
Provide users with a unique view of the charge and discharge performance of their battery on a smartphone via a simple-to-understand Android or Apple App. This free to download App provides extremely accurate information – generally far more so than a typical analogue battery meter. The App, once connected to a smart device, will also sends users a reminder to put their LiFOS on charge once it has been discharged to 30%, thus further prolonging its life.
LiFOS is fitted with removable terminal posts and ring terminals can be connected connected directly onto the terminal plates. In addition, two LiFOS batteries can be joined in parallel to create double the (AH) capacity. (Please note that LiFOS cannot be joined in series to create higher voltages)
LiFOS is a featherweight 7.8kgs. When compared to a good quality 120Ah lead acid battery at circa 34kgs, LiFOS gives an impressive 77% weight saving and in campervans and boats, saving 27+ kilograms can be crucial.
LiFOS does not emit noxious gases therefore does not need to be housed in a specially vented chamber. LiFOS has a huge operating temperature range of -20 to +60 °C and it can be used in any orientation (e.g. on its side), although on its base will give the best performance.
