48v Lithium Battery

Will a 48v lithium battery be your best choice for RV camping or dry camping? We answer some of our customers' questions here: Did you know lead-acid was created in 1859? Invented by French physicist Gaston Planté, the invention was a serious leap in technology. But 150+ years is a long time. A lot has happened since then; the evolution of batteries for instance. Lithium in particular is unlike any other battery technology on the market. Many boondockers claim it’s the way of the future, but we’ll leave that up to you. Read more

Will a 48v lithium battery be your best choice for RV camping or dry camping? We answer some of our customers' questions here: Did you know lead-acid was created in 1859? Invented by French physicist Gaston Planté, the invention was a serious leap in technology. But 150+ years is a long time. A lot has happened since then; the evolution of batteries for instance. Lithium in particular is unlike any other battery technology on the market. Many boondockers claim it’s the way of the future, but we’ll leave that up to you.

For most campers though, you’ll want to get the most bang for your buck and enjoy your adventure for as long as you can. Lithium batteries are safer and longer-lasting, so for most people lithium is going to be the better option. Choosing a 48v lithium battery will help you avoid battery woes and mishaps when you’re trying to have a good time.

When you decide which type of dry camping battery is right for you, it helps to ask yourself the following questions:

How long will my batteries last dry camping/boondocking? We covered this briefly, but lead-acid batteries last between 2-6 years vs lithium LiFePO4 batteries coming in strong at nearly 14 years and that’s if you’re using it every day (they’re rated to last 5000 cycles, that is, you can recharge the battery 5000 times).

How does my battery affect the environment? Lead-acid is known for toxic leaks. Lithium batteries are non-toxic and can even be brought to your local recycling center when you’re finished using them.

How heavy is your battery? When you’re packing all of your camping equipment, lugging around a heavy battery can make the process exhausting. Lithium weighs about ½ that of its lead-acid counterpart.

Is it Bluetooth-equipped? This is one of the most exciting facets of a lithium battery. With Bluetooth technology that syncs to your smartphone, you’ll know exactly how much battery power you have left. No iffy calls and ruined boondocking adventures.

Our Conclusion: Lithium Batteries Are The Best For Boondocking & Dry Camping, Unless…
The quality of your battery is important, obviously. In the lithium vs lead-acid competition, lead-acid batteries fall short in providing a strong boondocking and dry camping experience, in pretty much every arena except one — short-term price.

If you’re looking for the cheapest short-term option, that’s going to be lead-acid. If you can’t quite afford lithium batteries at the moment, but you really want to start boondocking or dry camping immediately to say, test it out for a year, and maybe upgrade then, maybe it’s worth a temporary try.

That said, there are many reasons to do your best to go the lithium battery route. For one, they last twice as long. Lead-acid is difficult to maintain, are very heavy, need proper venting to avoid dangerous fumes, and aren’t efficient in the slightest. Lithium batteries are 100% maintenance-free, lightweight, non-toxic, safe to use, and are the most efficient of all battery types. If you’re looking for quality, you definitely want to go the lithium route. Again, mostly because they last longer and they’ll save you good money in the end.

The success of your dry camping or boondocking trip relies heavily on how well you are prepared. Sure, having a comfortable bed and a bag full of snacks is important, but so is having lights when you need them, an overhead fan to keep you cool, and a water pump that functions. Without a reliable battery, things get hairy quickly.

So soak up the sunshine during the day and embrace the star-filled sky at night with the confidence that your battery will enhance your boondocking experience to its full potential. Our conclusion? Powering your travel trailer or other RV with a LiFePO4 battery is the best way to go, whether you’re boondocking or dry camping.
