Advantages of LiFePO4 batteries

The R9 battery uses the latest lithium-iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery technology, with a 16-cell configuration and an external battery management system.

It is lighter and more efficient, with a much higher depth of discharge, than competing lead-acid or gel battery alternatives.

This type of battery is also significantly safer – for people and the planet – than other lithium battery types.

100 Ah vs. 200 Ah lithium batteries

A 200 Ah battery provides the same amps per hour, or capacity, as two 100 Ah batteries connected in parallel (provided the connections don’t add resistance).

Each battery type has pros and cons, depending on your requirements.

For example, a 200 Ah deep-cycle battery…

  • gives you power for longer
  • can be less expensive than multiple 100 Ah batteries
  • is heavier to move around than individual 100 Ah batteries.

A single 100 Ah battery might suit lower power needs or those at the start of the journey towards full energy independence.

REVOV offers 2nd LiFe 100 Ah batteries like the REVOV R100, as well as 200 Ah lithium batteries like the REVOV R9.
