A 120 amp lithium battery is suitable to be used in many different applications. The most common is when you are camping and staying far from any standard power source. These can be used to run lighting, and supply enough power to run several appliances so you can feel a little more at home. The amount of power you require in any situation is determined by what items you’re planning on using and for how long. Another factor to consider is your ability to recharge the battery once it has been depleted.
You can pair a 120 amp lithium battery up with a suitable solar panel to make sure it has enough charge to provide you with a reliable power source.
Camping is a brilliant escape from the everyday, but often people feel they are missing out on luxury items that they are used to at home. This includes lighting or running a camping fridge to keep your food at the right temperature. It’s ideal to have at least one battery with you when you're camping, but if your needs are great then you can increase your power capacity by adding more batteries and solar panels into the mix. With your own power systems, it is reasonably easy to add additional items to it and make your camping lifestyle a little easier.
Can I charge a lithium battery with a normal charger?
For the best results you should use an appropriate lithium battery charger with your 120 amp lithium battery as these are best designed to work with the internals of the battery. If you’ve come into some overcast days while camping you can also use power from a portable generator to recharge your lithium battery. It is possible to use a standard lead acid battery charger on a lithium battery provided you can set the maximum voltage of the charger, and that you have the automatic equalisation mode turned on. You'll find that most modern battery chargers will have these settings available. If you set the charger to the battery without turning those modes on, you’ll need to be ready to disconnect it as soon as the battery is showing a full charge, failure to do so may result in damaging your battery and shortening its life span. It is preferable to only use a lead acid battery charger on a 120 amp lithium battery in an emergency situation, such as if your current lithium battery charger is broken and you’re waiting for a new one to arrive from the team at Outbax.

At Outbax we have tested all our items to make sure they are suitable for Australian conditions, and this includes the 120 amp lithium battery. These will not overheat (they’re rated to remain cool at temperatures of 45oC) and cause you any problems while you're camping. You can set up solar panels to recharge the battery and it is large enough to power most items at your campsite. After you choose the lithium battery that is best suited to your power needs, you can also look through the rest of the items in our catalogue. We carry many products that are designed to make your outdoor experience more pleasurable. We have an assortment of different batteries available, including a 100ah lithium battery which is our most popular model. For staying around the home we have UGG boots for cold winter nights, and inflatable spas, and above ground pools for cooling down on those hot summer weekends.
Whatever your power needs Outbax has a solution that will work for you. The exact requirements of your systems will be reliant on what exactly you plan on running. You’ll need to work out exactly how much power you need and how fast the battery can be recharged. On all your equipment you should find markings that state how many amp hours (Ah) the item will use; this is normally recorded as an hourly rate. Once you calculate everything up and figure out how much power you need, we’d suggest adding in at least an additional twenty-five percent to the total to arrive at the amount of Ah you need in your power system. For the best results we’d recommend testing out your system where you have backup available, this may be your backyard, or a camping ground with grid power available.
