Combine the power of a 150ah AllSpark lithium battery with a 1225D RedArc Battery Charger
4 Year Manufacturers Warranty
30 Day Money Back Guarantee
Benefits of the AllSpark LiFePO4 batteries include:
can be discharged safely by 80%, meaning that the 150ah is equivalent to around 240Ah AGM discharged to 50%
Rapid Charge - in a hurry? The AllSpark LiFePO4 150ah battery will take up to 150A to charge in record time
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.
The REDARC BCDC1225D In-vehicle Battery Charger is the next generation in REDARC's DC to DC charging technology, with additional features that make it the most advanced dual battery charger on the market.
Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator
- charge from both solar and the alternator simultaneously
- built-in 'Green Power Priority' will select solar charging first, meaning less load on the alternator
- suitable for 12 or 24-volt vehicle systems
- works with either standard or variable/smart alternators.
The BCDC1225D features the same patented charging profiles as it’s predecessor along with a new lithium charging profile making the unit suitable for charging AGM, Gel, Standard Lead Acid, Calcium and LiFePO4 batteries.
For most applications, the BCDC1225D is suitable for battery bank sizes of 75-200AH. For higher capacity needs of over 200AH, REDARC recommends the BCDC1240D (check other listings in Offroad Living store).
Proven and Tested
The award-winning technology in the BCDC has been independently verified and tested to ensure battery life is maximised, charging your battery to a proven 100%.
Built in Australia and tested for our unique conditions, the DC to DC battery charger will work in the extreme heat of the Simpson Desert, up to 80°C and can handle deep water crossings at Cape York – water, dust and vibration are no match for this charger.
If you’re heading out into the bush and want to get there and back again safely – you can trust REDARC.

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.
