A: The most obvious improvement of upgrading the 12V system to 48V is that you can use high-power electrical appliances, such as an air conditioner, refrigerator, or oven in your RV to greatly enhance your off-grid living experience. Plus thinner cables can be used to connect the battery to the rest of the 48V system, thus reducing transmission loss, and improving the safety of your solar setup.
A: We recommend using a 54.75V lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery charger to maximize the capacity. ☆ Recommend charging voltage: 53.25V ~ 54.75V ☆ Recommend charging current: 20A (0.2C): the battery will be fully charged in around 5hrs to 100% capacity. 50A (0.5C): the battery will be fully charged in around 2hrs to around 97% capacity. Attention: ☆ Connect the charger to the battery before connecting it to the grid power in case of sparks. ☆ Remember to disconnect the charger from the battery after fully charging.
LiTime 48v 100ah lithium ion battery could support max. 4800W load power, and we recommend you use a 5000W inverter with it.
LiTime server rack lifepo4 battery supports max. 4800W load power, and you could normally use it under the load lower than 4800W. This 48v100ah lithium battery takes Max. 100 amps.
LiTime server rack lifepo4 battery supports 4000+ 100% SOC & DOD. If you would like to extend the battery life, we suggest you charge/discharge it to 80% capacity.
LiTime server rack lifepo4 battery with built-in 100A BMS has 4800Wh energy, and supports max. 4800W load power and max. 100A continuous charge/discharge current. We have a lot of customers feedback that our 48v solar battery is applicable for some Ryobi, John Deere electric riding lawn mower.
Please DO NOT connect LiTime 48v solar battery in series. LiTime 48v solar battery supports up to 4 identical batteries connected in parallel for up to 48V 400Ah battery bank.
A: Yes. LiFePO4 is an inherently safe chemistry and the most stable lithium-type battery on the market. LiTime lithium cells are UL certified for the highest safety and sustainability standards. All LiTime LiFePO4 batteries come with an internal Battery Management System which protects against under-voltage during discharge, over-voltage during charge, over-current during discharge, over-temperature during charge and discharge, and short-circuit protection – protects battery cells from damage. Additionally, LiTime LiFePO4 Lithium batteries have been tested to be free from the risk of fire, and electric shock in harsh environments.
No. LiTime LiFePO4 lithium batteries are not intended to be used as starting batteries but energy storage, please do not use them to start any devices.
Yes, you can charge LiTime LiFePO4 lithium batteries with solar panels. You should size your charge controller based on the voltage and current output of your solar array setup. That will ensure that your charge controller can process and regulate the power coming from your solar panels. Take a 24V MAX. 22 amps output solar system as example. You would need a solar charge controller that can handle 24 volts and 27.5 amps (125% of your max current output).
LiFePO4 batteries can safely charge between 32°F to 113°F (0°C to 45°C). If you have frequent low-temp charging needs, we recommend you our self-heating series. If you have occasional low-temp needs we recommed you our 12V 100Ah Smart battery. LiTime 12V 100Ah Smart LiFePO4 batteries include the low-temperature charging protection which will automatically cut the battery charging off when the cell temperature is lower than 32℉, thus preventing the battery cells from damage when charging under the freezing point. If necessary (not recommended), you can push the low-temp protection button twice, then the BMS would allow your battery to charge under the freezing point for emergency use.
It is recommended to store LiTime LiFePO4 batteries at 50% state of charge (SOC). If the batteries are stored for long periods, cycle the batteries at least every 6 months. Recommended storage environment: 10℃～35℃ (50℉～95℉), 45%RH～75％RH.
