LiT® Battery Frequently Asked Questions

How safe are Lithium Ion Technologies® Batteries?

Lithium Ion Technologies® LiFePo4 batteries are considered to be safe, non-flammable and non-hazardous by international and federally regulated standards.

What can I use a Lithium Ion Lithium Ion Technologies® Battery for?

You can use a lithium battery for any application that would normally use a single or multiple Lead Acid, GEL or AGM batteries. Lithium Ion Technologies® batteries are commonly used for Marine, RV, Solar, Industrial, performance, and Golf Cart applications.

How do I change my batteries to Lithium?

After you take out your old batteries, place our batteries in the same way. You can use the same cables to reconnect into Lithium Ion Technologies® products.

How do I charge a Lithium battery?

Lithium Ion Technologies® uses the latest and most advanced built-in battery protection system to prevent damage to the battery. You may utilize a standard charger for our products, although in some cases a lithium charger may be required to charge the batteries.

Charging sources:

  1. Alternator: Most alternators will sufficiently charge Lithium Ion Technologies® Batteries

  2. Inverter: Most inverters have a way to set or program the charging voltage. Lithium ion batteries need to be charged as close to 14.4v – 14.6v as possible to get a full charge.

  3. Standard charger: A standard battery charger will charge a Lithium Ion Technologies® Battery lithium ion technology due to our advanced built in battery protection system.

  4. Lithium Charger: Purchase a charger designed specifically for Lithium Ion Technologies® Battery to charge our lithium ion batteries up to 14.6V.

How long do they last?

Lithium Ion Technologies® Battery will provide you with 2000 complete charge and discharge cycles at 80% DOD. After 2000 cycles, you will still have over 80% of usable energy left!

Example: One 12v 100ah Lithium Ion Technologies® Battery, after being fully discharged for 2000 cycles, is now a 12v 80ah battery.

So what does that mean in terms of years?

If you discharge 80% of the Lithium Ion Technologies® Battery and then recharge it every day for 6 years, you will still have 80% of usable battery power left. This is a huge increase in lifespan compared to a typical AGM or Lead Acid battery rated at 300 life cycles.

How will I know how many batteries I need?

Please send us a quick inquiry.  A customer support representative will suggest a more efficient lithium battery bank for your application. Lithium is 70% lighter while delivering the same amount of power and capacity as an AGM or lead acid battery bank.

What is the built-in battery protection system and how does it work?

Our internal battery protection system is a high-tech innovative design made to protect the lithium cells.

  • Internal Features:

    • Low Voltage Protection Switch  – Automatically disconnects at 10.5V.

    • Over Voltage Protection Switch – Automatically disconnects at 15.8V.

    • Short Circuit Protection Switch – Automatically disconnects upon a short.

    • Reverse Polarity Protection Switch – Automatically disconnects should polarity be accidently reversed.

    • Internal Cell Balancing – Automatically balances cells while under charge
