Lithium RV Batteries
More Power = Camp Longer
How do you use your RV?
RVs come in different shapes and sizes to fit a host of different people and different needs. Whether your using a motorhome, 5th wheel, bumper pull, living quarters or some creative overland RV, you’ve got to have the right equipment to make the best of your RV experiences. And that equipment set up depends if you’re going to have access to power to plug your RV into while using it—called Shore Power—or are you going to be boondocking it without any plug in shore power.
For Your Off-Grid RV Experiences
When your RVing in the great outdoors, away from shore power, you need to have a steady source of power to keep all your conveniences running—TV, microwave, lights, AC, heater, etc. And you’ll need a way to keep that power source putting out power for as long as you want to boondock. That means batteries, and not just any batteries. You want batteries with power and that will last. And that means Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries!
Lion Safari UT™ 1300 Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery
The Safari UT 1300 has an abundance of power (105Ah), can use all the storage energy in it (100% depth of discharge or DOD), can be connected together to give even more energy or increased voltage if you need it (parallel and series), doesn’t require maintenance (no fluids, no need to trickle charge or remove from your RV at the end of the season), is light weight (23 lbs) and comes with a lifetime warranty (at least 3,500 cycles at 100% DOD daily use).
Try getting all that in a lead acid or deep cycle battery.
No chance. We recommend you install at least 2 Safari UT 1300 and replace your old lead acid batteries. And if you need something with a little less stored energy, try the Safari UT 700.
Let’s focus on Shore Power, where you can plug in your RV to power!
When your RVing in the great outdoors and can plug into power—called Shore Power—you may think that’s all you need. While Shore Power is great, sometimes you’ll need to have power when there is no Shore Power, by force or by choice. Your options are battery power or generator power. If you don’t mind the noise of a generator, the need for fuel and the fumes that come with it, or the maintenance, a generator is an alternate source of power. But if you want peace and quiet, something good for you and for the environment, and that’s renewable from the sun, lithium battery power is the way to go. A helpful hint: there is a solar generator that is safe, silent and renewable that you can find in the “Other Great Solutions You May Want” section below.
Lion Safari UT™ 1300 Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery
Portable auxiliary power for RVs has traditionally been through some type of lead acid batteries. They’ve served their purpose, but they are old technology that can be a bit hazardous, bulky and heavy, and require a fair amount of attention, maintenance and replacement. And you only get to use about half their energy capacity.
Well, today there is a much better solution for back up or auxiliary power—Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. But not all lithium is the same. That’ why we recommend the premium performing Lion Safari UT 1300. It has an abundance of power (105Ah), can use all the storage energy in it (100% depth of discharge or DOD), can be connected together to give even more energy or increased voltage if you need it (parallel and series), doesn’t require maintenance (no fluids, no need to trickle charge or remove from your RV at the end of the season), is light weight (23 lbs) and comes with a lifetime warranty (at least 3,500 cycles at 100% DOD daily use).
Try getting all that in a lead acid or deep cycle battery. No chance.
We recommend you install at least 2 Safari UT 1300 and replace your old lead acid batteries. And did we mention, they come with a lifetime warranty! And if you need something with a little less stored energy, try the Safari UT 700. To install the Safari UT Lithium batteries, check out some of the videos below or go to our website www.LionEnergy.com.
Lithium iron phosphate batteries are the foundation. Now you may want to consider some additional gear to make your RVing free from power worrying. You can always have a professional do the work or you can take the DIY approach.
Charging Your Batteries
How to Install
Once you’ve got the gear you need to power your RV, including long lasting lithium iron phosphate batteries, you’ll need to make sure everything is installed properly so you can enjoy the great outdoors without worry.
Installation can be done by professionals in your local area or you can go the DIY approach. Both are a great option. Check out the videos below on installation helps and how others have done their installations.

Other Things RVers Might Enjoy
Besides the basics, there are several other great solutions you may want to have with you on your RV adventures. These products can make not only RVing more enjoyable, but they can also be used when you’re not RVing—around the house, the yard, in outbuildings, for everyday use or during emergencies. Check them out. Reminder, the Safari ME+XP is the safe, silent, and renewable solar generator we mentioned above. You can even plug in your RV to it and it becomes a “Shore Power” connection with its 2,000W of continuous output. It’s amazing! (Note: then show pics of ME+XP, 24V L100, 3 LED light string with links to their product pages. It would be good to have a short pop out for each or at least a header for each so people know what it is/called/does).
