style LiFePO4 batteries gaining in popularity, and our customers asking us for them on a near daily basis, we examined nearly every drop-in
LFP battery option available for our customers over a 13 month period. Hands down the Lithioncs Drop-in batteries, including the GTX12V315A-E2107, were the clear winners on every front.
This is a 315Ah internal BMS battery that is capable of engine cranking and includes a Bluetooth Interface as well as CANbus and FCC or a field control circuit for alternator protection. It is also made here in the USA (with the exception of the prismatic LiFePO4 cells). The internal construction of this battery is the best we've seen including massively thick nickel plated busbars and the proprietary Lithionics NEVERDIE® BMS which is designed and built here, in the USA.
In order to comply with ABYC TE-13 this battery features external communication in the form on CANbus, Bluetooth and FCC (Field Control Circuit). The battery even features an ON/OFF switch for storage and for wiring to prevent arcing. Another unique feature of the NEVERDIE® BMS offers Power Reserve
. This means the battery will self protect, at a safe level, but for an emergency you can re-boot it and have emergency level energy available.
Lithionics is the only drop-in battery we know of that can furnish a test data sheet that includes test data for every cell in the battery
! The cell matching and performance testing of each cell is a pivotal part of a Lithionics battery. Where competitors simply pull cells out of a bin, insert them into the battery, and cross their fingers they match well, Lithionics does not build batteries this way. Downloadable Documents:
