Lion Energy Lithium RV Batteries Vs Others

Are you in the market for a new battery for your RV, trailer or camper?

The advent of lithium-ion batteries and their use in RVs represents one of the most significant leaps forward for RV electrical systems in years.  Lithium batteries are allowing people to camp longer while eliminating the hassle of maintaining traditional lead-acid batteries.

Allow us to show you why the Lion Safari UT 1300 is the most powerful and efficient lithium-ion RV battery.

Why Choose the Lion Safari UT 1300

  1. Raw Power Throughput - While most competing batteries can only output 50-100 continuous Amps, the Lion Energy Safari UT 1300 can output 150 Amps continuous. This means we can power more and meet the needs of higher draw RV power systems.
  1. Other lithium batteries don't have enough power to handle spikes (surge in Amps) to power things that require more power, such as a dump trailer.  The Safari UT can do 900A for a millisecond (a spike) then approximately 250A for one minute and 150A continuous (how much power it puts out) capacity. It can power your cabin, 5th wheel, boat, dump trailer, shed, and motorhome.
  1. Lifetime Battery - Using lithium-ion technology, the Safari UT 1300 can be drained and recharged over 3,500 times, outlasting any lead-acid battery by years.

    If you were to drain and charge the Lion Safari UT 1300 every day, it would take almost 10 years to reach the batteries 3,500 life cycles!  And even after all that, the battery would still be running at 80-85% of it's original capacity.

    That's why we back it with a lifetime warranty. 
  1. Light and Compact - While other lithium batteries weight 31 pounds or more, the Lion Safari UT 1300 weights just over 23 pounds.  It's light and compact and fits in a standard group size 24 battery compartment.
  1. Real Customer ServiceOur customer service is second to none. To ensure you get your Safari UT 1300 in a timely fashion, we ship within 48 hours. Plus, no product ever leaves our shop without being thoroughly tested to ensure it meets our high standards.  If you need help, our customer service is available Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm MST via phone, email or text.

    Tech Team,
    I have a 2019 Airstream (50 amp) with a PD9260 Converter/Charger (with mode Wizard pendant), plus have three Zamp (flexible, parallel) 100W panels with a Zamp 30A PWM controller. From a prior RV, I also have a 120W portable Nature Power solar briefcase where I replaced the dumb 8A controller with a Zamp 15A PWM controller – the briefcase plugs into my Zamp solar port.

    I needed more battery capacity to power my wife’s CPAP (with humidifier ~60W sustained), plus run the heater fan (~100W cycles on/off) during the night when winter boondocking in my local Southern California deserts. To increase battery capacity, I replaced my two 80Ah lead acid Interstates with two Lion Energy Safari UT 1200 90Ah (total 180Ah; 2304Wh) lithium batteries. I also changed both the Zamp controllers battery type setting to be compatible with the lithium batteries. When on 120v shore power, I use the PD Wizard pendant to invoke boost mode charging at 14.4v for the lithium batteries. When boondocking, besides solar, if it’s cloudy I use a paired set of Honda EU2000i propane generators (30A equivalent into shore power plug) , to supplement recharging of the batteries through the PD converter/charger. I didn’t have a battery monitor, so I bought a Victron BMV-712. I watched the Victron and other YouTube videos to get a feel for the 712 settings, but I’m still not sure I’ve got them all correct for my Safari UT lithiums. So, my request: Could you send me your recommended 712 settings for the Lion Energy lithium batteries? Also, in my iOS iPhone battery settings screen there are buttons for Synchronizing and for Zero Current – how and when do I set these up with the Safari UT’s? Finally, in the future could I add another lithium battery (Safari UT 1300) for a 3-battery bank that will work with my existing solar controller and converter/charger set-up?

    I appreciate any assistance you can provide – OK to call or text me if needed.

    Please post a text copy of your warranty. Would love to have your battery, but will not buy until there is a written warranty I can have in hand before buying. RandyP
