4 Year Manufacturers Warranty on the AllSpark LiFePO4 Battery
2 Year Manufactuers Warranty on the RedArc Manager 30
30 Day Money Back Guarantee
Benefits of the AllSpark LiFePO4 batteries include:
can be discharged safely by 80%, meaning that the 100ah is equivalent to around 160Ah AGM discharged to 50%
weigh less than half the weight of an equivalent AGM. This means they're taking up less space and less weight, which are always at a premium when you're camping and caravanning!
Maintenance free with 2000+ life cycles at 80% depth of discharge, this battery is the perfect option for those serious about 4WDing, camping or caravanning.
175A continuous/320A surge: an exclusive BMS, developed by Offroad Living, this battery allows for the running of a 2000W inverter on a single battery.
These batteries can be used in battery banks:
We love hearing from our supporters! Here is one customer's set up under their caravan who replaced their AGM system.
The Red Arc Manager30 is a complete battery management system for charging auxiliary batteries used in recreational automotive and marine applications. The dual battery system incorporates AC, DC and solar inputs to achieve the best charge for an auxiliary battery.
- Multi Stage AC-DC Battery Charger
- Multi Stage DC to DC Charger
- Maximum Power Point Tracking Solar Regulator
- Battery Monitor
- Dual Battery Isolator
- Load Disconnect Controller
- Super quiet operation
- Charges AGM, Gel, Calcium content, VRLA, Standard Lead Acid and LiFePO4 batteries
- Tested to mains power safety standards in Australia
We're an Aussie family who loves to get out and about around Oz! Have had a Manager 30 for years now, never skipped a beat!
The Manager30 represents a complete DC to DC charging and maintenance solution. If you’re charging one auxiliary battery or more, The Manager30 will ensure they’re always fully charged, providing peace of mind when battery charge provides the power source for the comforts of home whilst travelling around Australia.
Charging lithium batteries
Lithium batteries have improved storage capacity relative to size and weight. Despite claims to the contrary, lithium batteries do require specific charging conditions in order to operate correctly and the battery itself must have an in-built cell management system. REDARC have designed a charging profile within The Manager30 to complement these in-built systems.
Green power priority
The Manager30 is designed to charge an auxiliary battery from multiple sources simultaneously. If 12 volt solar power is available, solar power will be used before topping up the output charging current from another source mains (if available) or DC vehicle power when on the move.
MPPT solar regulator
The built-in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator allows The Manager30 to deliver the maximum amount of power from portable solar panels, even during low light conditions.
Designed to show you auxiliary battery information and charge status. You can customise how your battery is charged and monitor where the charge is coming from. A user-friendly, graphical display monitor lets you know what’s going on, keeping you in control at all times.
Contact Jas for advice on switching from AGM! Custom cabling can also be provided upon request.
(SELECTED FAQ BELOW, SEE ALL OUR FAQ REGARDING BATTERIES OVER HERE)
I've seen some cheaper lithium batteries on the market, why would I pay more?
Generally speaking, lower priced batteries on the market use lower priced materials. To achieve lower prices they are most likely using cylindrical cells. This is a mass block of 18650 cells. They are slightly larger than AA batteries, with hundreds of them strapped together to make up a cheap and very unreliable battery pack.
They cannot produce the higher current output of a good quality prismatic cell pack like used in our AllSpark range. All it takes is for one 18650 cell to fail and it's a rapid decline of the rest of the pack.
You can ask retailers which cells they are using, but often they either do not know, or have bought off the shelf and are misled as to what is inside their batteries.
If you want a quality battery made with cells manufactured using the very best raw lithium materials and BMS componants available on the global market, and you want reliability and longevity (think 10+ years), then it pays to buy quality which costs a little more.
Can I connect a lithium battery in parallel/series?
Not all lithium batteries can be run in parallel or series, and you will need to check with the retailer as to whether this can be done.
The AllSpark Lithium batteries, however, can be joined in both parallel and series connections. You can have up to 6 x 100ah AllSpark batteries and 4 x 150ah in parallel, and 2 of either batteries in series (to run 24V).
Many brands of batteries (including some quite expensive ones) on the market cannot appropriately deal with high current discharge from parallel LiFePO4 setups and have disconnect issues, it is not the case for all batteries. Old style BMS with contactors, relays and moving parts (just a basic switch) may well have issues being connected together. Likewise for the batteries that have low quality cells or with BMS ratings of 100A or under.
AllSpark LiFePO4 batteries come with a solid state BMS and have been specifically designed from the get go, for exactly this application - running large inverters either from a single battery (up to 2000w) or in parallel for higher capacity or current output. Our BMS is designed for 175A continuous discharge/320A peak (or even 200A/500A in our new model) and runs large inverters seamlessly standalone and with paralleled batteries.
We recommend installing parallel batteries using a busbar setup rather than daisy chained parallel cables from terminal to terminal. Active cell balancing inbuilt in our BMS ensures cells receive the correct charge every time with extensive protection mechanisms built in to ensure the cells are always looked after. Cells are balancing at all voltages and will charge and discharge cells as required to balance the voltages.
Not all batteries are created equal, and this is reflected in our market leading 4 year warranty.
Can I install my AllSpark lithium battery on it's side?
Yes, you can install your AllSpark lithium batteries safely on their side.
We do not, however, recommend installing it upside down.
