1. What are Renogy 48v battery’s greatest advantages?
Firstly, Renogy 48 volt lithium batteries apply up-to-date pouch cell technology. Some batteries on the market use used battery cores, which hurts the battery’s life span and presents safety risks. In addition, Renogy 48v lithium ion batteries feature self-heating functions, an auto-balancing system, and an advanced and efficient BMS system. Moreover, Renogy 48v batteries have passed the free drop test, elector-magnetic compatibility testing, forced overcharge/discharge test, and crash test.
2. What exactly are pouch cells？
Soft pouch cells use a lightweight aluminum-polymer film to house the battery core, however most Li-ion batteries on the market today still use outdated hard metal battery casings. Comparing metal casings and pouch cells of the same capacity, pouch cells are substantially more light weight and have good cycle performance. When a pouch cell is damaged the gas and heat can escape through a sealing port, preventing further violent reactions. However, hard metal battery casings made from aluminum and steel are much more likely to explode when damaged.
3. My current RV is using a 12V system, if I upgrade to a 48V system what obvious life improvements will I see?
The advantage of upgrading from 12V to 48V is that you can use high-power electrical appliances in your RV. Suppose you need to use high-power electrical appliances such as an air conditioner, refrigerator, or oven. A 48v battery will meet your energy needs and greatly enhance your off-grid living experience. Also, thinner cables can be used to connect the 48v LiFePO4 battery to the rest of this system. This will reduce transmission loss, save on space and improve the safety of your solar setup.
4. How long can this 48v lithium ion battery be used for?
This 48v battery can complete 4500 full charge-discharge cycles, and 48 v battery efficiency will drop to 80% of factory performance after this. If you live entirely off-grid and charge and discharge the 48 volt lithium battery once a day, it will last for more than ten years.
5. How many 48v lithium ion batteries can be connected together at once?
Up to 8 48v lithium ion batteries can be connected in parallel. The auto-balancing function allows you to connect in parallel more safely.
6. I’ve never seen a switch button a 48 volt lithium ion battery before, what function does it have?
We have added a one-touch activation function to this battery. When the 48v lithium battery and BMS system aren’t needed, they can be turned off with one touch, reducing wear and tear, making storage safer, and extending 48v lithium battery’s lifespan.
7. Is 48 volt lithium battery suitable for a golf cart?
Yes, Renogy 48 volt lithium batteries make perfect 48v golf cart batteries. Over lead acid and AGM batteries, 48v lithium golf cart batteries provide a number of benefits. One is that they are significantly lighter. They also don't need to be maintained. Due to their better efficiency and longer longevity, 48v golf cart batteries are also less expensive in the long run.
8. How should I handle the battery after it arrives?
When you receive your battery, please be aware that it may have a low State of Charge (SOC) due to the transportation and storage process. To ensure its optimal performance, we recommend charging the battery right away to avoid over-discharge. If you plan to store the battery for an extended period without usage, we suggest charging it to a SOC of 30% to 50% and performing maintenance every three months. These steps will help maintain its functionality and performance over time.
