You probably know about these batteries and are aware of the benefits over lead acid based (sealed, AGM, flooded and Gel) batteries. These are the future for marine power. Proven safe, exceptionally long life, constant voltage output, small size for the power, half or less of the weight and cost effective over time compared to lead acid.
Standard batteries need to be discharged to no less than 50% of capacity to realise a reasonable life of perhaps 3 or 4 years. So if you have 600 Amp Hours (AH) on board you have access to only 300 AH before starting to damage the batteries. In real life this is frequently not possible and batteries fail prematurely with all the fun of buying new ones, dragging out the old and replacing big heavy items. If the identical case size is not available then the pleasure extends to modifying your boat to accept and secure the new units. Not my idea of a good time every couple of years.
LiFePO4 batteries will change this, light, power dense and happy to discharge to over 80% of capacity with NO voltage drop your electronics and equipment will also benefit from the constant power. No memory effect means you can charge when it suits you not when the batteries approach 50% of capacity. Large discharge capacity will run the windlass, power winches, thrusters and other high load items that can draw huge current as the voltage from the lead acid batteries drop.
Now available in Langkawi duty free, save up to 30% in tax alone; competitive prices and straight talking advise. Solar controllers with a LiFePO4 setting available if required.
12 volt 200 AH units or 24 volt 100 AH units, other sizes on request.
All batteries include ABS case with a Battery Management System (BMS) and a built in display for state of charge, battery voltage and battery temperature.
