Choosing the right size battery for your boat and performing routine maintenance will ensure the optimal lifespan of your battery and will save you money. Many boats will need two types of batteries, an engine starting battery and a deep cycle battery for powering navigation, lights, and domestic equipment. There are four different chemical types of marine batteries for your boat: wet cell (flooded), gel cell, absorbed glass mat (AGM), which are all lead-acid batteries, and lithium. The versatile type for marine use for powering navigation, lights, and domestic equipment is the AGM and Lithium battery.

STORAGE CAPACITY

100 ampere-hours (Ah). EJ Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 100 amp-hours. EJ LiFePO4 batteries have a flat voltage curve, which means they have a steady power output as the battery discharges. The power output will not dramatically drop like similar sized SLA batteries.

Lithium v AGM Capacities;

100Ah Lithium = 160Ah AGM

200Ah Lithium = 320Ah AGM

300Ah Lithium = 480Ah AGM

Battery Management System
The battery is also equipped with an internal LiFePO4 Battery Management System (BMS) that can monitor and optimize each Prismatic cell within the battery during normal operation. It will protect the battery pack from overcharge, over-discharge, over-temperature & short circuit. The BMS helps to ensure the safe and accurate operation of the battery.
