12V Lithium Iron Phosphate battery. Ideal for sealed lead battery replacement
- High capacity - rated at 5 hour discharge rate against lead acid
rated at the 20 hour rate. For example a 26Ah lead acid battery (20 hour
discharge rate) is approximately only 22Ah at the 5 hour discharge
- Low weight, approximately one third of a similar capacity lead acid battery.
- Deep cycle, recharges up to 2000 times at 80% depth of discharge.
That's 4-8 times better than a lead battery's cycle life dependant on
- Fast Charge, able to accept higher charging currents all the way to charge termination. No float or trickle required.
- Inbuilt Protection Circuit Module, protects against over-charging,
over-discharging, over-current, external short circuit, incorrect
charger use. Beware cheap imitations that lack a protection circuit or
only use BMS cell balancing upon charging.

CAUTION: A dedicated Lithium Iron Phosphate charger is
required. Do not use non appropriate chargers or chargers used for other
We recommend using charger model:
- FY1503000 (14.4V 3A)
- FY1506000 (14.4V 6A).
In larger capacity models where a higher charge current is accepted, we also recommend charger model FY1509900 (14.4V 9.9A). A ring terminal to Anderson adaptor cable (part no. CE081E) may be required for use with this charger.
Adaptor cable is sold separately as optional extra.
PLEASE NOTE many
sellers new to the lithium battery industry are claiming lithium iron
phosphate batteries can be properly charged with lead battery chargers. This is incorrect.
Please use chargers specifically designed for charging lithium iron
phosphate batteries or batteries may not fully charge and/or battery
life may be significantly reduced.
Additionally, this battery contains a lithium ion
battery protection circuit module (PCM). The PCM further enhances the
safe usage of this battery in comparison to non-protected
rechargeable lithium batteries. We recommend when this battery is used
packs for series or parallel connections that individual chargers are
used for each battery. Charging multiple battery arrays as a single
battery pack may trigger the PCM inside one
or more of the batteries that could lead to capacity miss-match in the
that could reduce performance of the complete battery pack array. Please
consult us for
further information and technical advice.
