First we took out our AGM’s. Then we popped in the new caravan lithium batteries, before we switched our battery management system to lithium charging profile. Then voila
Here’s how we have found them
The advantages of caravan Lithium batteries over AGM batteries for us.
Lithium batteries almost double the available amps when compared to AGM
They can be run down to 20% safely. Or in iTechworld’s’s case almost the whole battery capacity. Unlike AGM’s which as mentioned is 50%.
Lithiums maintain their voltage until almost flat.
Last several years longer than a AGM
They are super light weight. We went from 3x AGM batteries that were 32kg each to 3x iTechworld lithiums that were 11kg each.
Our Caravan lithium Usage
Even though it will vary for everyone! We run a 218 litre compressor fridge, inverters, phone chargers, laptop chargers, Tv and lights all on regular occasions during the day.
Not to mention our smart home network (over 25 devices ) is always running and a few other gadgets 🙂
For us, being full time on the road, we could be in the bush for weeks. Having caravan lithium batteries are definitely the way to go. Along with our 600w of Solar panels on the roof we don’t run out of electricity.
Three months in Tasmania without having to plug in to power also says a lot! Check out our Tasmanian Free Camps here.
Larry bought some new LED headlights for the old girl recently, “the ute not me”! 😄
Larry also bought a jump starter. As we are loving our 3x caravan lithium batteries from iTechworld we chose to buy from them again.
Funnily enough, we have never had jumper leads. However, we did need to jump start the ute once. Larry jump started it from the battery we have in the back of ute battery.
Why Buy One Now?
Over this last year, Larry has been asked by another caravanner if he could help jump start their tow vehicle. Which he did, with their leads and our battery.
Likewise, he needed to jump start machinery on the sheep station he was working on. While at work Larry jump started a couple of big rigs. It was time to get one!
