The Safari UT™ 1300 BT is the latest in Lithium Battery technology. It replaces traditional deep cycle lead acid batteries with the safest and longest lasting Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. It has 1344Wh, 105Ah and 12.8V all at only 23 lbs. And it comes with a limited lifetime warranty. It's redefining the battery industry!


There are a lot of things to love about the Safari UT 1300 BT: its light weight for easy use and transportation, its long lifespan to camp 2X longer, or its ability to recharge from renewable sources. It will provide renewable energy for years to come.

Weighs Less

At only 23 lbs, and a standard group 24 size (small footprint), the Safari UT 1300 is about 1/2 the weight of traditional batteries yet exceptionally powerful.


Made from Lithium Iron Phosphate, it's the safest lithium battery on the market. You can use it indoors or outdoors. It doesn't use potentially volatile chemistry.

Lasts Longer

Long lasting life cycles at 3,500+ using full depth of discharge (DOD) and still has power to spare. It can hold a charge for up to 2 years.

Renewable Solar Batteries

Use the power of the sun to fully recharge the UT 1300 in as little as 7 hrs. That way you can stay as long as you want.

Camp 2X As Long

Standard lead acid batteries give you 50% usable energy or Ah. The Safari UT 1300 gives you 100% usage or all 105Ah. You'll be able to go camping 2X as long on a single charge as lead acid.

Expandable for More Power

One Safari UT 1300 has 150A continuously and a 900A peak discharge. If you need more, they can be connected in parallel or in series to get even energy storage and more power.

Zero Maintenance

No acid or water. No trickle charging. No mess. The Safari UT 1300 just works, day in and day out.

Lifetime Warranty

The Safari UT 1300 comes with a limited lifetime warranty and is the last battery you'll probably ever need. Using Lithium Iron Phosphate technology, it can be drained and recharge over 3,500 times, years and years longer then Lead Acid batteries.

Environmentally Friendly

The Safari UT 1300 produces zero emissions or carbon footprint during use, emits no greenhouse gases, and does not damage the environment. It's good for you and the planet.


Our Safari UT battery series comes with our own proprietary BMS that will protect your battery from harm. It's like having a person body guard for your battery.

The Safari UT series all have an internal Battery Management System (BMS) that acts as a safety net to shut down the battery if it out of parameters. This prevents the battery from overcharging or discharging as well as operating outside of the temperature range.


  • The Safari UT 1300 BT is the lightest Lithium Iron Phosphate battery in its class by more than a bunch. This make a HUGE difference when you're looking at overall weight capacity for your RV, Trailer, or outdoor rig.
  • Because we use prismatic cells vs cylindrical cells, we can pack more power in a smaller unit.
  • The Safari UT 1300 BT has a limited lifetime warranty. It may be the last battery you'll ever buy. Everyone else offers only a 3 to 11 years warranty and are often prorated.
  • When you look at the price per watt basis and the extended life and usage capacity, the Safari UT 1300 BT give you outstanding performance.

Lion Energy Safari UT 1300 Frequently Asked Questions:

What Makes The Lion UT 1300's Different? 

The Safari UT 1300 is the latest in Lithium battery technology. It replaces traditional deep cycle lead acid batteries with the safest Lithium – Iron Phosphate. It is a “plug and play”– simply remove the deep cycle lead acid battery from your RV or boat and replace it with this superior performing battery.

How Long Will These Last?

The life of this Lithium battery is 14 times that of deep cycle lead acid batteries—this is literally a lifetime battery--thus a Life Time Warranty.

Can They Store Solar Power?

The Safari UT 1300 is a great energy storage unit for solar power from panels on homes, cabins, and businesses and RVs.

How Do You Maintain the Lion UT 1300's?

The Safari UT 1300 is virtually maintenance free, meaning you don’t have to use it or even trickle charge it every 3-4 months, deal with fluids since it doesn’t have any, or remove it from your vehicle and store it for the next season. It can hold its charge for up to 2 years and can be recharged after that time too.

How Long Do They Hold a Charge?

It will maintain a charge for up to 2 years without having to charge it. This is known as shelf life or storage life. We recommend using it more frequently than every 2 years, though. 

Will These Work In Cold/Bad Weather?

The Safari UT 1300 performs better than lead acid batteries in most weather conditions. It can charge between temps of 32° to 113° and can discharge between -4° to 131° at 100% rate. Outside these ranges it can discharge at a lower rate.

What's The Rated Capacity on The Safari UT 1300's?

It is commonly referred to as a 12.8V, 105Ah (how much energy is stored in it), 1344Wh (12.8V x 105Ah). Technically, it is called Nominal Voltage at 12.8V and 105Ah. It can do 900A for a millisecond (a spike) then approximately 250A for one minute and 150A continuous (how much power it puts out) capacity.

Can You Use Them In Series or Parallel?

Yes. You can increase the voltage from 12V on a UT up to 48V total by connecting them in series (4 batteries connected together via + to - posts). You can increase the Amps (A) and Amp Hours (Ah) up to 1500A and 1000Ah by connecting them in parallel (+ to + and - to -).

What Are The Battery Charging Parameters?

We recommend setting all voltages to 14.6 per UT in series or at least close to where it does not exceed 14.6V. End amps or tail amps need to be set as low as possible and inverter low voltage needs to be set to 11.5V. Victron inverters charger and charge controllers should be set to 13.9 volts for a 12 volt inverter and 27.8 for 24 volt inverters. 

What Is A BMS?

The Safari UT already has an internal Battery Management System (BMS) that acts as a safety net to shut down the battery if it is out of parameters, this prevents the battery from overcharging or discharging as well as operating outside of the temperature range.

Can I Use My Standard Battery Charger?

Yes! You could use a standard battery charger and it will charge the batteries. However, since most chargers are designed for a lead acid battery they are made to go up to a certain voltage, and on a lead acid battery their "full" is about 13.8V - where our batteries go up to 14.6V. Most chargers would get the batteries to 13.8V (which is about 50%-70% on our batteries) and then trickle charge from 70%-100% so ideally, you will need to look for a charger that will be able to be customized to go up to 14.6V or that is designed for a lithium battery. 

Can I Charge From An Alternator?

Yes, the Safari UT will take to much current so you must limit it with the wire you use to charge it, if you need 10-12 feet of wire around 10-12 gauge will work to limit the current, but always double check the actual current with a current meter and size the fuses appropriately. You will need to add fuses and other protective equipment to protect the system. To prevent possible damage to your alternator, we recommend using the Redarc (Model #BCDC1225D), which is a DC-DC charger that will safely charge your batteries while you are driving.
