Exclusive BMS, developed by Offroad Living, this battery has 175A continuous output and 320A surge, allowing for the running of a 2000W Inverter on a single battery - other LiFePO4 batteries on the market require TWO batteries to run an inverter of this size. This means you can run appliances such as your coffee machine, toaster, kettle and sandwich makers*.
Can be discharged safely by 80%, meaning that it is equivalent to a 160Ah AGM yet weighs less than half the weight.
Maintenance free with 2000+ life cycles
This battery is the perfect option for those serious about 4WDing, camping or caravanning. Contact us for advice on switching from AGM! Custom cabling can also be provided upon request.
NB. These are true deep cycle batteries and are not suitable as cranking batteries. If you do not need to run a 2000W inverter from a single battery please check out our 100-200Amp 100ah LiFePO4 battery option. Contact us if you are unsure of which you require.
When you are going off road, safety ought to be your highest priority, and when it comes to safety, the LiFePO4 battery from AllSpark is a unit you can rely on. Read More
Good reasons to buy the AllSpark LiFePO4 battery
Built specially as a lightweight but heavy duty 12V Lithium ion battery, it is capable of delivering far longer battery life than most other products in its class. In fact, Jason, our resident guru on all matters related to 12V power, rates this battery as having equivalent usable power as a 160Ah AGM, yet it has less than half the weight. The 150Ah version is equal to a 240Ah AGM.
For anyone camping or off-roading, this is a big deal. It matters because long battery life and portability can be critical factors when you're in the outback, especially if you find yourself in any kind of trouble.
This is the perfect deep cycle battery for extended forays into the wilderness, and a better alternative to AGM. These batteries are lighter, more compact, have a longer service life, and are more reliable. They are faster to charge, and can be stored for longer between uses, so they not only do a better job of meeting your needs, they're more convenient too and make the more efficient use of your charging systems
Safety and reliability built right in
If you're wondering about the odd name of these batteries, LiFePO4 is the chemical formula of the cathode in the battery cells (Lithium Iron Phosphate). These batteries provide numerous advantages because they are:
Cheaper per amp hour produced over their life than even higher rated batteries of other types
Less toxic than most other deep cycle battery types with lower environmental impact
More stable voltage output and more reliable than typical deep cycle batteries
Advances in technology have also reduced the charging time for LiFePO4 batteries due to increase absorption efficiencies, which is also a major advantage, especially when you're recharging from solar input.
This battery type is much more chemically stable than ordinary lithium-ion battery types, and certainly is safer than lead-acid batteries. The stability makes the battery safer from problems caused by overloads, short circuits, overheating, overgassing and so on. This helps to prevent more catastrophic conditions like fire or explosions from developing, especially from those with internal protection systems.
For the off road enthusiast or camper, these batteries are a very good choice. Their ability to keep going for longer, the ease with which they can be charged, and their overall good safety and reliability could be what helps you survive your planned adventures where others would limp home with tail between the legs.

(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.
