All traditional batteries have their own charge rate and Lithium is no different. Pairing a LiFePO4 Lithium battery with the correct charger and charge rate ensures the cells are charged effectively. If a LiFePO4 Lithium battery is not charged at its specific optimum charge rate, it will adversely affect the cycle life of the battery.

Lithium batteries cover a broad range of Lithium chemistries, such as LiFePo4, LiCoO2, LiMn2O4, etc…:
Revolution Power Australia’s internal battery management system is designed to equalize and balance the cells. It will also turn the battery off if the voltage is too low, too high or short circuits.
As with any battery, LiFePO4 batteries suffer when they are over-charged or over-discharged. An inbuilt BMS is critical to provide under and over voltage protection and balance the cells. Without an in-built BMS, the cells may discharge to 100%, or become unbalanced over time, which will adversely affect the cycle life of the LiFePO4 Lithium battery.
The Battery Management System (BMS) inside Revolution Power Australia’s batteries is one of the most robust BMS’ on the market and as such handles the balancing of the cells with in the batteries allowing them to be used in parallel.
The Revolution Power Lithium battery’s internal management system (BMS) has a 100A continuous draw with a 2-4 sec peak of 400A. This equates to using a 1000W inverter or appliance that will max out that inverter size. If bigger inverters are required, we recommend paralleling batteries to create a bigger bank/draw. i.e. 2 x 100ah Revolution Lithium batteries = 2000W inverter.
*Note: The draw of the internal management system (BMS) does vary between brands of Lithium batteries. And not all Lithium brands can be paralleled.
The BMS’s used in the Revolution Power Australia Lithium battery when connected in parallel are unable to talk to each other making the batteries unable to connect in this manner.
When additional batteries are added to an existing traditional battery bank, the new battery will quickly drop to the voltage of the lowest battery in the system. Lithium does not suffer from this scenario due to the internal battery management system (BMS) equalizing and balancing the cells within each battery.
Revolution Power Australia’s batteries can be added together with different amp hour combinations as long as the correct total amp hours are selected on the charger. Eg. 1 x 100Ah + 60Ah = 160Ah.
As there are no liquids inside the batteries, Revolution Power Australia’s Lithium batteries can be mounted upright, on their side or end.
Even though the Revolution Power Australia Lithium Battery is not recommended for cranking, it may start your vehicle in an emergency situation, depending on CCA required. If the battery cannot handle the draw of starting the engine, the batteries Internal Management System (BMS) will shut off and protect the battery.

Lithium in its pure form is a soft, silver-white metal that tarnishes and oxidizes very rapidly in air and water. It’s soft enough to cut with hand shears. It is the lightest of all metals, with a density only about half that of water. Like all alkali metals, lithium reacts easily in water and does not occur freely in nature due to its activity.
Lithium is one of the most efficient metals to hold energy and can be recharged many times.
