As we all know ,LiFePO4 is one of the safest battery chemistry on the market. It has a long lifespan, quick charge, discharges at a consistent rate, and has an almost fully usable amount of energy storage.

So What Should I Look for in a Lithium Battery?

1.Voltage check :Be sure that the lithium battery’s voltage matches the electrical system of your RV. Most RVs have a 12V system, the most common type of battery (whether lead-acid or lithium). But, certain rigs operate on different voltages. Double-check the compatibility before purchasing.

2.Capacity check :It depends on the total power of electricity on the RV. Generally, there are electric cooker, water heater, lighting, TV, audio equipment etc. Some of the RV is also built-in air conditioning. air conditioning appliances draws a lot of amps (power) and requires a very large battery bank (400Ah+).
