Highly Efficient On-board Lithium Power Systems for Vehicle Conversions

Powering on-board appliances, tools, media and amenities is a vital part of the design for specialist vehicle companies whose customers are looking to run increasing technology, work equipment and mobile comfort. Whether it is a recreational or commercial vehicle, efficient and effective power solutions help set a conversion apart.

Lithium battery systems provide a significant improvement on existing power technologies in a number of ways.

  • The systems allow vehicle builders to provide more power from a smaller battery footprint meaning more space on-board and longer periods of power use
  • Lithium batteries offer much greater efficiency – the battery can be recharged to 90% in just one to three hours (depending on system components) so the system can be bought back to full power ready for work.
  • The batteries will last almost twice as long as a gel battery, so they will not need to be replaced as quickly, increasing the cost efficiency of the system.
