Experience from over 3,000 installed Lithium batteries in RV's and boats since 2011 drove this development for the safest, easiest to operate Lithium battery:
- SAFIERY LITHIUM batteries have a cycle life of 3,000 cycles or about 8 calendar years with 80% DOD (Depth of Discharge).**
- SAFIERY LITHIUM batteries are designed to be grouped in parallel for additional capacity. 125Ahrs; 250Ahrs; 375 Ahrs; 500Ahrs.
- SAFIERY LITHIUM batteries have 99.9% charging efficiency.
- SAFIERY LITHIUM batteries can be charged with most existing automatic battery chargers, DC to DC converters and solar chargers that have an AGM setting and do not have an automatic “desulfate” mode.
- SAFIERY LITHIUM battery can be charged safely by vehcles without a DC to DC booster providing they have at least 13.8V.*
- SAFIERY LITHIUM batteries have in built bluetooth diagnostic alerts that you can read on your smartphone.
- PICO is perfectly matched to Lithium Batteries to protect your investment.
*Vehicle alternator output at 13.8 volts will charge the battery to 80% capacity or less but will not damage the battery.
**Usable capacity decreases with time with all lithium batteries.
Silence is a Luxury
THE SOUND OF SILENT
Did you listen to the pure sound of water last night or the pure sound of the bush?
Batteries work without any noise. You only hear the sounds of the night.
THE FUTURE OF LUXURY BOATING and CAMPING
SILENT LUXURY is the dream of eliminating the major noise of gensets as well as the negative effect on your wallet and the environment without sacrificing the slightest bit of luxury. The future of luxury yachting or camping is individualistic, noiseless, self-sufficient and honouring nature and environment.
EASE OUT AND RELAX
The only footprints you leave are those in the sand.
Imagine starting every morning with an inspiring sunrise, and ending daylight with a breathtaking sunset! Watch, smell, feel nature and be aware that you take responsibility for the environment. Ease out, relax and enjoy as you sit in the most beautiful and interesting places.
TECHNOLOGY FOR MARINE
Light-weight Lithium Batteries provide ample energy for all household appliances, e.g. for television, air-conditioning, ice-machine, water-maker, laptop etc. Simple wall or floor mounted Lithium Arrays can supply ample power for overnight stays. These ae installed in multiple sets of typically 7.2kWhr. Up to 14 can be installed, giving you over 100kWhr of clean power.
The technology has evolved to have an economical life efficiency. Best safety, performance, weight and life-span.
TECHNOLOGY FOR RV's
Luxury is sleeping all night with cool air. Light-weight Lithium Batteries provide ample energy for efficient 240V airconditioners that operate all night. Simple Lithium Arrays can supply ample power for overnight stays. These are installed in multiple sets of 200Ahrs at 12vr. Up to 6 can be installed, giving you over 1200 Ahrs of clean power, enough for an air-conditioner all night.
In the galley, induction-cooktops are the fastest and cleanest way to cook. There is no open flame nor heating element. The inside of the yacht or caravan stays comfortably cool.
Q and A
Can I use my existing AGM battery or solar charger?
AGM battery or solar chargers typically have a bulk charging mode of 14.4V and a float mode of 13.7 or 13.8V. These can be used charging Safiery Lithium Batteries.
The result is the battery will get to about 95=97% of charge quite quickly however the remaining 3-5% will take longer to fully charge compared to a dedicated Lithium Charger. There is no negative impact on the battery nor does it shorten it’s life using this type of charger. It is important though that the charger is locked into AGM mode and does not have an automatic de-sulphate program.
What if I have a deep discharge and let the battery go flat?
Everyone experiences a flat battery on their travels with something being left accidentally on. With Safiery Lithium, provided you act quickly in a day or so, there will be no noticeable impact. The number of cycles may be reduced but lets put that in perspective: If you travel and camp 150 nights a year, then in 10 years your battery should have done 1,500 cycles. The design life is 3,000 cycles and after a deep discharge, this may shorten to 2,000 cycles. The Lithium chemistry reduces capacity at around 2.5% per annum. So in 10 years, you would have 75% capacity remaining. This is more important than the number of cycles. Read how to extend shelf life..
What is best charge level to store the batteries when not in use?
Lithium batteries are best stored at 40-60% charge. There is a noticeable shelf life discrepancy if you store them fully charged. When returning from a trip, turn off the battery charger and let the State of Charge % drop down to this range, then isolate the batteries at 60%. It is best to use State of Charge ion the Bluetooth app and NOT voltage as it is very difficult to determine battery status level from voltage with Lithium Batteries.
What is the impact of high temperatures?
Surprisingly, Lithium Batteries produce a higher capacity is slightly elevated temperatures. At 60 deg C battery temperature, these batteries will produce 103% of the nominal capacity. At 0 deg C battery temperature, they will produce 85% of nominal capacity. At 30-40 deg C they produce 100%: perfect for Australian conditions.
What is the impact of installing these batteries in parallel?
These batteries have a new form of battery management system that, in addition to the individual battery cell management, allows up to 6 batteries to operate in parallel. They do this with data communication through the 12V interconnecting cables. The batteries have to be installed in parallel in a short distance to each other.
What is the warranty on these batteries?
These batteries have a 2 year warranty. However, it is important to note that Lithium chemistry degrades at a nominal 2.5% per annum so after 2 years the battery capacity will be 95%. The capacity may also be affected by deep discharges that are left uncorrected. If the battery is not recovered within days after a deep discharge, the capacity of the battery can’t be warranted. Deep discharge history is retained in the battery memory and accessible from the Bluetooth app.
