When looking to buy an LFP battery, the warranty is a crucial point in determining which is the best option. Our warranties are broken down into three separate categories for Deep Cycle, Motorcycle / Power Sport and Automotive / Car batteries. Some other manufacturers advertise 10-Year warranties but we encourage you to read the fine print that explains the warranty is really 2-3 year and then can be "repaired at their discretion" after that time frame. We are straight to the point without having to mislead customers. Please be aware the warranty only covers the battery if used in accordance with...

Parallel circuits have been around since their invention in the 1800s, but how does this pertain to batteries? You've probably heard of parallel or series connections when it comes to batteries, but what does this really mean? Today we will be tackling parallel configurations for our Powertex LiFePO4 Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. Parallel connections for batteries means, connecting anywhere from two to four batteries of like voltage and amp hour to increase the total capacity. For example, two 12V 100Ah batteries connected in parallel would net 200Ah of total capacity. Four of the same 12V 100ah would net a total of 400Ah...

It can all seem a bit confusing, upgrading from conventional lead-acid batteries to LiFePO4 Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. Will my device fit one of these LFP batteries? Are there any changes I need to make to the configuration? Can I just drop-in the replacement battery? These are all valid questions which we will answer to steer you in the right direction. Within LFP batteries, there are various types based on application. For example, an RV which needs low discharge rates for extended periods of time will require a deep cycle battery for its electronics. A car which needs to crank the...

You've purchased or are looking to purchase our Powertex LFP batteries but are not sure what is the proper way to store your new battery. We will cover what are the DOs and DONTs to prolong the battery life of your new lithium iron phosphate battery. Ambient Temperature During Storage of LiFePO4 Storing batteries at the proper temperatures is one of the keys to their longevity. Many areas of the US have extreme weather, cold or hot. The recommended short term storage temperature is 32℉ - 104℉ with humidity less than 70%. If the battery is being stored for an...

By now you’ve probably heard about Lithium batteries, more specifically LiFePO4 Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries outperforming conventional Lead-Acid batteries. Our goal is to answer the following important questions to help you make the right choice for your application:• Is lithium really better?• Are lithium batteries safer?• What are the main differences between conventional and LiFePO4 batteries?• Why are lithium batteries more expensive and is it worth the investment?For this post, when we use the term Lithium we are referring to Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, a type of lithium-ion battery often spelled LiFePO4 or LFP. We will also use the term Lead-Acid...
