X-Cell specialise in rechargeable deep cycle battery technology, and the LTR Series Lithium-iron (LiFePO4) models is the flagship offering. While the initial outlay of Lithium-iron phosphate batteries is higher, they certainly pack in a lot of value! The significant performance and weight benefits make them a smart choice for off-grid cabins, and for anyone embarking on 4WD, camper trailer, caravan and boating trips.
If you’re wondering exactly what are the benefits of the X-Cell LTR Series, here’s a run down. Firstly, a serious advantage is the weight; or lack thereof. They are about 4 times lighter than the lead-acid based AGM and GEL batteries– saving you valuable real estate in your vehicle, as well as cutting down on your fuel costs.
In terms of performance, the X-Cell Lithium range really sets itself apart from other options. With a very constant discharge voltage, the voltage stays close to 12v until the cells are almost exhausted. Importantly, this gives you much usable life per cycle, and is much kinder to your accessories, like a fridge or lighting. An internal BMS (Battery Management System) monitors each cell to protect and optimise performance, maximise lifetime, and ensure safe operation.
LiFePO4 batteries are also much faster to charge due to lower resistance. While alternative battery types need to be trickle charged, X-Cell Lithium can accept a much higher current. You can hook it up to an alternator and charge it in as little as 15 minutes! Furthermore, another big plus is that the life of an X-Cell Lithium battery is far superior. With 2000 cycles the battery will enjoy around 30% longer life than other alternatives.
Lithium-iron can operate in a far wider range of temperatures, making them the ideal choice for use in many remote regions. It’s clear that with the superior performance and weight benefits, X-Cell LTR Series Lithium batteries offer a better cost over the life of the product, making them a truly worthwhile investment.
