Lithium Battery Installation in Bristol

With so many options available, choosing the right lithium battery can be a daunting task.

Benefits of Lithium Batteries in Caravans and Motorhomes

With numerous options available in the market, selecting the right lithium battery can feel overwhelming for caravan and campervan owners. However, the advantages of investing in a Lithium Leisure Battery outweighs the challenges, offering a myriad of benefits for avid travelers.

Why Invest in a Lithium Leisure Battery

Customers opt for Lithium Leisure Batteries for various reasons, including the escalating costs associated with 230v electric hook-up. Additionally, these batteries grant access to remote and off-grid locations where traditional electric hook-ups are unavailable. From attending events and festivals to utilising 12v compressor fridges, which often drain standard leisure batteries, the demand for increased 12v battery capacity is evident.

Enhanced Capabilities with Lithium Batteries

Lithium has revolutionise the recharging process, significantly improving efficiency compared to traditional lead-acid batteries. These batteries can be charged through solar panels, 230v chargers, or DC-DC (B2B) chargers which draw power from the vehicle’s engine. Unlike standard batteries, lithium batteries can withstand higher charging rates without damage, leading to faster recharge times.

Maximizing Efficiency and Usable Power

With the ability to accept higher charge rates, lithium batteries offer faster recharging capabilities, especially when coupled with efficient chargers. A lithium battery can be fully recharged within a couple of hours of driving, providing travelers with ample usable power upon arrival at their destination. Moreover, lithium batteries offer up to three times more available 12v energy compared to traditional batteries of the same size, maximizing efficiency during extended journeys.

Lithium Batteries: Considerations and Costs

While lithium batteries offer significant advantages, there are associated costs and considerations to bear in mind. Embracing the benefits of a lithium leisure battery may require upgrades to the charging process, wiring loom, and the acquisition of the new battery itself. It’s important to note that lithium systems come at a price, a full upgrade typically ranging around £5,000.
