The Safari UT 1300: The Last Battery You'll Ever Buy

The Safari UT 1300: The Last Battery You'll Ever Buy

Introducing the Safari UTTM 1300

Lion Energy is excited to announce the release of the Safari UT 1300, an exciting addition to the Safari batteries that feature lithium-ion technology. The Safari UT 1300 is available to order on and in select stores starting today.

The Safari UT 1300 replaces traditional deep cycle lead acid batteries with the safest Lithium – Iron Phosphate. It is a “plug and play”– simply remove the deep cycle lead acid battery used for auxiliary power from your RV or boat and replace it with this superior performing battery.

This game-changing lithium battery has zero maintenance and retains a charge for up to two years. It can be drained and recharged over 3,500 times, outlasting any lead-acid battery by years. At Lion Energy, we back up the Safari UT 1300 with a limited lifetime warranty. 

The Lion Energy Safari UT 1300 is maintenance free, meaning you don’t have to trickle charge it every 3-4 months, deal with fluids, or remove it from your vehicle and store it for the next season. It holds its charge for up to 2 years and can be recharged through solar or traditional means. It weighs just 23 pounds (compared to 45 to 80 pounds of other batteries) and is the standard Group 24 size. 

No need to worry about emissions, because this lithium battery creates none. The Safari UT 1300 is completely renewable by the sun, which means you can have an unlimited power source in your RV, campers, trailers, or home. The Safari UT 1300 is a great energy storage unit for homes, cabins, sheds, remote locations, and RVs. This battery is ideal for emergencies, work, or play. 

We recommend setting all voltages to 14.6V per UT in series. End amps or tail amps need to be set as low as possible and inverter low voltage needs to be set to 11.5V. Victron and other major inverters charger brands should be set to 13.9V for a 12V inverter and 27.8V for 24V inverters.
