Our energy use and expectations has increased as we want to charge more electronic goods, electric bikes etc. In the motorhome and caravan. Installing Lithium batteries a good solution because they are efficient with a large capacity and they weigh less.
Simply replacing the standard 12-volt regular lead-acid battery with Lithium as a house battery is not as simple as you might think, because the new battery will be connected to a lead acid start battery, a solar system, the 240 volt AC charger and the engine alternator.
The battery charge criteria is critical with Lithium batteries because they are sensitive to overvoltage and heat. Therefore sometimes the AC charger needs changing as well as the solar controller, depending on what is currently fitted to the vehicle. Prices may vary from vehicle to vehicle depending on what is already there and whether we can reuse existing cables etc.
Late model motorhomes now have smart alternators that behave very differently to the traditional alternator. A special interface is required to regulate the flow of energy from a smart alternator to the lithium battery
