The Lithium RV Battery Advantage
One of the first questions most people ask about the Ionic LiFePO4 RV battery is, why spend more on lithium deep cycle batteries, aren’t lead acid batteries cheaper? Here’s a few reasons you might choose lithium over lead acid.
Our lithium batteries can take a lot more punishment than lead acid batteries, and usually last 2-4x longer as a result (some have even reported lasting 10x longer). They can also be discharged past 80% state of charge while lead acid batteries can only be discharged down to 50% before it does damage to the battery.
Our lithium batteries are rated to last 5,000 cycles, which should easily last 10 years, and up to 50, assuming 100 cycles per year. Even after 5,000 cycles, they’re still capable of producing 70% of their rated capacity. Lead acid batteries are rated to last around 400 cycles and should last 2-6 years, but often last less when people fail to give their lead acid batteries enough attention and maintenance. And once they hit their 300 to 500 cycle limit, they need to be replaced.
Sometimes you need less weight on your hitch. For example, if a 300 Ah usable capacity lead acid battery bank surpasses the hitch weight limit of your towing vehicle (400+ lbs adds up quick, after all), you need to find a lighter option.
Lithium weighs roughly ⅓ of a similarly sized lead acid battery. So a lithium battery bank with 300Ah usable capacity will should weigh around 150 lbs, which leaves you with a lot more wiggle room.
Lithium (LiFePO4) RV batteries charge 4 to 6 times faster than lead acid batteries, because they can accept higher charge currents. They also have a built in battery management system to keep the battery from overcharging.
More Efficient Charge
It will take a much larger and more expensive solar setup to charge a lead acid battery bank as fast as a similarly sized lithium ion deep cycle battery bank. LiFePO4 batteries have a 99% charge efficiency, while lead acid sits at 85%.
No Maintenance Needed
Lead acid batteries are the divas of the RV battery world. One of the most frustrating things is their endless need for attention — constant cleaning, corrosion removal, electrolyte replenishment (for wet cell lead acid batteries) — it adds up! And the sum of this equation, for many, is a simple “too much.” Lithium provides an excellent alternative, because they require exactly zero maintenance.
No Fumes, No Venting
Lead acid batteries need to be stored in an outside compartment with vents because they give off toxic vapors, which makes it difficult to store them properly.
Your lithium batteries, on the other hand, can be stored practically wherever they fit. They don’t give off toxic fumes of any kind — no fumes, no venting.
Lithium batteries don’t just weigh less. They take up less space too. If you need to place your battery bank inside a small compartment, lithium may (literally) be a better fit for you.
Know Your Battery Status
Ever wish your battery had some kind of health bar to show you it’s status? Well, our Ionic Batteries bluetooth app will do you one better. With this app, you’ll know your battery levels with a couple well-placed taps. And then some.
To start, this app connects to your battery to show you how much life your battery has, and how long it’ll take to fully charge. It also gives you useful battery information like voltage, current, temperature, and the current charging status of your battery (charge, discharge, standby). You can drill all the way down into the status of each individual cell in the battery.
The Ionic Batteries bluetooth app replaces guesswork with precise battery info, literally at your fingertips.
We'll get you up and running in no time
With Ionic Deep Cycle Lithium Batteries powering your boat, you'll be able to spend more time on the water doing the things you love. No more worrying about whether your lead-acid battery is charged and ready to go or wondering what level the charge is at. Lithium deep cycle batteries are fast, efficient, lightweight, and easy to use.
RV Sources of Power
Your RV is powered by two systems, 120-volt AC and 12-volt DC. Both systems need shore power or generator power, unless you go off the grid and harness the power of the sun itself with solar (more below).
120 Volt AC: Shore Power & Generator
Your 120-volt AC system powers the “luxury” items that require more power, like your:
- Kitchen appliances
- Air conditioning
- Water heater
Your 120-volt DC system takes electricity from shore power or your generator and channels it into the above items, and charges your battery bank when you plug it in as well.
12 Volt DC: Battery Bank
Your 12-volt DC system powers the necessities that require less power, like your:
- Interior lights
- Water system
- Overhead fans
- Safety warning devices
- Engine’s electrical components
Your 12-volt battery bank will charge while it’s hooked up to shore power, your generator, or solar, and also as you drive. Unlike your 120-volt AC system, your 12-volt system will continue to provide power even after you disconnect from all power sources, until your batteries run out of charge.
Now, let’s say you’re sick of dragging your generator out and running it 7 or 8 hours every time you need to charge your batteries, and you don’t want to be reliant on shore power. Your best option is to combine solar panels with lithium batteries. Here’s why.
Lithium batteries mean running out of power less often, thanks to their efficiency. This is especially important in the winter, when the days are shorter and the sun doesn’t get as high (overcast days present a similar problem). You have to use your limited energy as efficiently as possible so you don’t run out, and lithium is the perfect answer.
Not only that, you can buy a smaller and less expensive solar array. Because it will provide just as much power as a larger solar setup would with a lead acid battery bank.
That said, lithium’s biggest benefit is peace of mind. Solar power requires more upkeep and effort than many people realize, and lead acid tips the scale with its own unique set of frustrations. Many solar first-timers get overwhelmed with the combo.
But with solar-lithium you dodge the avalanche of non stop maintenance, and you can finally lose the “battery anxiety” that comes from waiting 6 to 12 hours for your lead acid batteries to charge, constantly checking so you don’t overcharge your battery into an early grave. Not to mention worrying about discharging past 50%!
Because you can discharge your lithium batteries past 80% with no problems, and your charge controller-BMS combo keeps the batteries from overcharging. Anxiety free.
A Better Investment
The true value of our Ionic LiFePO4 batteries becomes increasingly obvious over the life of your battery bank. Most lead acid batteries die young because it’s so difficult to maintain them properly. Lithium doesn’t have the lead acid maintenance problem, and they can’t overcharge, which makes them worry free.
Thanks to their charge efficiency, no-maintenance, and extra long life advantage over lead acid, our Ionic lithium batteries are easily more cost-efficient over the lifespan of the battery. Simply put, our lithium batteries give you peace of mind. Less hassle, less long term costs — less worry, less stress. That makes lithium a wiser investment.
