Choosing the best caravan lithium battery
Battery technology has been advancing at a furious pace during the past few years, but amazingly many people are still using batteries that are designed for use in the distant past.
We're not just talking about old batteries here, but even batteries that are bought new, because so many people don't really understand the technology and don't know the right products to look for.
The first thing to know is you absolutely need a battery that has an intelligent Battery Management System (BMS) installed. This will help make your batteries more efficient, protect their lifespan, and help keep the battery in top condition. The BMS in our batteries also protects the cells from extremes of voltage and current and ensures even charging every cycle.
This should also be paired with a smart charging system when your batteries are connected to mains power, and top quality solar panels when you're off the grid. Making the right choices here will also prolong the life of your batteries and give you the best performance when you really need it.
It may sound a little daunting, but don't worry, we're here to help. When it comes to the battery itself, without question you need to invest in AllSpark LiFePO4 batteries, because these are the best value, highest performing deep cycle batteries in Australia you can choose.
LiFePO4 (lithium iron phosphate) batteries are stable, reliable, efficient, and lighter in weight than AGM or other lead acid batteries.
Offroad Living helps you prepare for life on the road
We love helping our customers get ready for their big adventures. We've got everything you need, and we're happy to share knowledge with you as well. Buying from us means you're getting fair prices, reliable products, and a deal you can trust.
What is the best caravan battery?
Keeping your caravan appliances powered up is really important when you're on the road, and even more if you're venturing off the road. Making sure you've got reliable batteries is something you should consider as a top priority when preparing for your trip.
You must have deep cycle batteries
Lithium deep cycle batteries are the safest, most efficient, and most reliable way to power caravan appliances. If you use other types, you can expect the possibility of surges, overloads, and all kinds of other unpleasantness.
A good advantage with deep cycle batteries is that they're intended to provide you with a steady current over a sustained amount of time. That makes them very different from the kind of batteries you put in your car, which deliver quick bursts of current for starting the motor.
Deep cycle batteries are designed to be able to be quite heavily discharged and then recharged multiple times. The typical automotive battery is not able to stand up to that kind of demand because it's just not designed to do it.
Lithium batteries will give you the best performance
To be more specific, you should ask for lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries. These batteries have significant advantages over all other consumer grade batteries on the market, and especially when compared to typical lead acid batteries.
Consider these points:
Lead acid batteries contain sulphuric acid which is highly corrosive and also highly toxic. Spilling this on anyone or anything can be a big problem, and because the battery compartments have to be designed with vent holes to let out the dangerous gases inside, spills can easily happen and moisture and dust can get in. LiFePO4 batteries don't contain sulphuric acid.
Lead acid batteries contain lead, which is also toxic. In fact it's extremely toxic to humans, animals, and plants. Avoiding contact with lead is definitely a good idea. LiFePO4 batteries don't contain lead.
Lead is the heaviest non-radioactive metal on Earth, which means batteries made with it are very heavy. Lithium is the lightest metal – it is 79 places away from lead on the periodic table – but in lithium batteries it is present as a salt solution, so it's not actually in its metallic form inside the battery.
Lead acid batteries need to be constantly topped up and maintained. This is difficult, messy, and can even be dangerous. Great care must be taken when topping up fluid levels in lead acid batteries (though of course it usually isn't). Lithium batteries do not need to have this maintenance performed on them. They are sealed and actually can't have any fluids added to them.
Lead acid batteries generate substantial amounts of hydrogen gas when they're being charged up. If this gas is not sufficiently ventilated and extracted from the vicinity of the charging, it can become a serious fire hazard. Lithium batteries only become unsafe if they're overheated to extreme temperatures, and this shouldn't happen if you use an appropriate charging device.
Clearly you will get the best results if you choose lithium batteries, and the best lithium batteries to choose are LiFePO4.
