Features & Benefits of Lion Safari UT 1300 lithium batteries

Cycle life

The UT 1300's have some of the highest rated lifecycles on the market.  Boasting 3500+ lifecycles at 100% DOD means that you could fully discharge your battery everyday for almost 10 years without a decrease in its capacity.   

Weight & Dimensions

For the amount of power you get out of these batteries their weight and size is truly incredible. They weigh in at just over 20 pounds and are the same 24 Group Size as other batteries.   

Shelf Life / Charge retention

Something you will absolutely love about these batteries is how maintenance free they are.  You don't have to deal with fluids (since it doesn't have any) like you would with a FLA battery and you dont need to use it or even trickle charge it every 3-4 months either.  You dont even have to remove it from your vehicle to store it for next season.  In fact, the UT 1300 can hold its charge for up to (2) years and be recharged after that time as well. 

LIFETIME Warranty!

That's right, a lifetime warranty.  So confident in the Safari UT 1300 that the battery cells are guaranteed even under the extreme use of maximum charge and discharge rates to last at least 3,500 cycles (charging and discharging and charging again).  Most people won't work it that hard so if you used it as most people do, expect to have it last at least 5,000 cycles.  The warranty isn't limited to "time" but rather the use and capacity of the cells in the battery.   

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.

    Had A little bit of a problem with getting the right battery… however, customer service was great. Answered the phone immediately and they resolved my problem within a few days. Purchased 4 batteries to set up a 24 v series parallel configuration and they work great. Good purchase. These batteries are smaller and packed with good power.

    My experience

    While the battery fits my need, I was disappointed with the delivery of the product. Instead I strongly suggest that your intro sales pitch be updated to state that delivery of product is subject to delays beyond your control vice delivery of 7 to 10 days. I fully understand the principles of supply and demand but I would have felt better knowing that my order had a more realistic delivery date.
