Renewable Energy Series is made for applications that can benefit from fast recharge, superior charge efficiency, weight reduction, and cycle lives beyond 2,000 cycles. The RE series is built with Lithium Iron Phosphate cells that are tested to the UL-1642 standard. Recommended for solar energy storage, RV energy storage, and other forms of off-grid energy storage, the RE series of batteries is a great value. They feature an internal battery management system designed to auto balance the cells and protect for over temperature, over voltage, under voltage, over current and short circuit conditions. They can be charged with typical lead acid battery chargers (see restrictions and notes) and are IP55 dust resistant. (Note: Not intended for wet location use.)
RE2470 12.8V 70Ah Lithium Ion Battery is a drop in replacement for BCI group 24 lead acid batteries for off-grid energy storage in most cases. Featuring 160 reserve minutes of energy, it is more energy than any AGM battery on the market in a standard Group 24 case. (10.25″ L x 6.61″ W x 8.24″ T)
It features an internal battery management system that insures long life and trouble free service, all safely sealed inside a lightweight box. This BMS system monitors for over voltage, over temperature, over current, under voltage, and short circuits. In addition robust cell balancing keeps the pack at its peak capacity.
Charging is simple because your existing 12V AGM or Gel battery compatible charger will work fine.*
In spite of all the power contained in this battery, it still ultra lightweight at an amazing 25 pounds!
*Insure the charger’s float voltage is 13.5V or less. Do not “de-sulfate” any lithium ion battery.
