With a slimline lithium battery, you are getting all the benefits of a LiFePO4 battery, but it can fit into tight spaces. These can give you many more options when it comes to mounting it. There are even models that can be installed into a wall with the correct mounting clips. At Outbax, we know that space can often be a premium when you’re travelling or working in an outdoor environment, and this is why we invested time in finding the correct slimline lithium battery for our customers.
At Outbax, all our batteries are designed for a single purpose, and that is to provide you with a safe and secure means for delivering power. They are reliable and require zero maintenance, other than a wipe down to keep them free from dust every now and then. The batteries you choose to install in any solar power system are essential. They need to handle all the incoming power and then deliver it to your equipment without any issues. The majority of our batteries come with an LCD readout screen to help you work out how much power is remaining and what is currently being used.
Online shopping is one of the best ways to get exactly the right battery for your needs. We can stock a larger variety than most other shops because we operate from a warehouse instead of a retail setting. All orders placed with Outbax are picked and packed within 24 hours, and shipping only takes 3-7 days. As you can shop at any time and from any location (provided you have good internet access), you can rely on us to support you whenever you need any equipment for your outdoor power needs. In addition to slimline lithium batteries, we also stock a huge range of suitable solar panels, including camping solar panels, solar blankets, fixed solar panels, and foldable solar panels. The number of panels you need to keep your batteries fully charged will rely on how much power you’re using and what level of suitable sunlight you can expect in your area. To help with your system, you can also pair it up with a portable generator as a backup system.
A slimline lithium battery is the same as a regular lithium battery (also known as LiFePO4), except it is thinner to make it suitable for people with limited space. These are perfect for people travelling in fitted out vans, 4WDs, caravanning, or camping where space might be an issue. A lithium battery is the best method for storing and delivering power produced by a series of solar panels. The exact size and amount of batteries you need may depend on your charging capabilities and what type of load you require.
When you’re looking at a slimline lithium battery, it is important to note the dimensions and consider if they fit in the space you need it to. You may have a dedicated space with some caravans, and the battery needs to fill this correctly. Otherwise, it could be damaged when you’re driving from place to place. If you’re purchasing the battery as a secondary unit, you can easily place these in almost any location, with some installed in very tight spaces.
How long does a slimline lithium battery last?
The slimline lithium battery, as stocked by Outbax, comes with a four-year warranty as a minimum against manufacturing faults. All lithium batteries are rated based on how many cycles they can go through; these are when the battery is totally drained and recharged. A battery that will last for 2000 cycles means that it can be drained and charge a minimum of 2000 times before it may need replacing. If you’re using the battery to the fullest every day, it’ll last at least 5 years. But since most people will only be using the battery for about half a cycle per day, you can expect to get double that time period. With other batteries such as a lead-acid or AGM models, these will only last 3-4 years regardless of use because they rely on a chemical reaction to create a charge. The slimline battery is better suited for those who want to go camping, and for those who want to use it in solar power systems because it can handle being charged and discharged for long periods.
To help your batteries last longer, you can figure out how much power you require daily and then buy a slimline lithium battery that can exceed that by 25-50%. Lithium batteries can usually be installed in a series, and they’ll all share the load, or you can buy one that offers greater storage capabilities. The slimline lithium batteries from Outbax are available in 100Ah, but you can also find regular batteries in 120Ah and 200Ah. If you only need a booster battery, then you can go with the 50Ah lithium battery.
