Lead-Acid Deep Cycle Batteries vs. LiFePO4 Deep Cycle Batteries:
All batteries degrade over time, but the rate at which Lifeline Lithium batteries degrade is much slower than lead-acid batteries and it results in the prolonged lifespan of these batteries.
A major difference between lead acid and LiFePO4 batteries is the amount of available power each will deliver to your RV. In other words, you can store more energy and access more power in lithium-ion batteries because they have a more dense and efficient energy storage system, which translates to more power available.
Bottom line…you can run more electrical equipment for longer with LiFePO4 batteries and unlike lead-acid batteries, they deliver full power even as the energy level is depleted in their cells.
Lead-acid batteries need to maintain at least a 50% charge level to deliver sufficient voltage, but LiFePO4 batteries can be depleted up to 100% without damaging the batteries or diminishing the available power.
Lifeline Lithium batteries weigh about 1/3 of the weight of traditional lead batteries and they are not dangerous, nor do they emit any fumes.
Maintenance of lead-acid batteries is one of the conditions that determines the useful life of the battery, but lithium
batteries require no regular maintenance. The bottom line, you certainly will have more power available for longer periods of time, and you won’t need to do any maintenance on the batteries. They are lighter, cleaner, safer, and more efficient. In fact, you might need to replace traditional “flooded” lead acid batteries every 2 or 3 years depending on the normal wear and tear of everyday use, and the way they are maintained.
