A new advanced lightweight lithium battery, LiFOS, is now available for boats and yachts.
The lithium iron phosphate rechargeable battery weighs 7.8kg and is suitable for leisure, commercial and off-grid renewable energy.
Dimensions are 257.5mm long, 190mm high and 175mm wide and the battery comes with a free Bluetooth-enabled app for both Apple and Android devices. The app can be configured to send the user a reminder once the battery charge drops below 30 per cent.
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.
The battery has an operating temperature range of -20 to +60 °C and it can be used in any orientation. As the technology used is emission-free, it does not need to be housed in a specially vented chamber
