Extend the Battery Life of your Work or Recreational Vehicles

Sep 12, 2023

In today’s world, battery-powered devices in work or recreational vehicles are becoming increasingly popular. However, using batteries for these applications comes with a set of challenges that must be addressed to maximize their efficiency and lifespan. This is particularly true when it comes to using lead-acid chassis batteries with auxiliary battery systems as these systems can be vulnerable to overcharging, over-discharging, and succumbing to other damaging conditions.

At InPower, we specialize in battery management systems and have developed a range of products to address these challenges, including our ultra-compact 12V SS Smart Battery Isolators (ABS3) and 12V Low Voltage Disconnects (LVD21).

The Benefits of Our Solid State Smart Battery Isolators and LVDs

When using lead-acid chassis batteries with auxiliary lithium-ion phosphate battery systems, it’s important to have an external battery management system that can protect the batteries from vulnerabilities. Our ultra-compact Solid State Smart Battery Isolators (ABS3) and LVDs (LVD21) are essential components of the battery management system and can help to extend the battery system’s life and protect lead-acid chassis batteries when used in conjunction with auxiliary battery systems.

The ultra-compact SS Smart Battery Isolators (ABS3) provide a seamless transition between the charging source and the battery system, ensuring that the battery is charged efficiently and safely. These products are designed to work with lead-acid and lithium-ion phosphate batteries and can isolate the auxiliary lithium-ion phosphate battery from the lead-acid chassis battery when it is being charged, protecting the lead-acid battery from overcharging and potential damage.

The Low Voltage Disconnects (LVD21) are designed to disconnect the load from the battery when the battery voltage drops below a certain threshold. This is critical for protecting the lead-acid battery from over-discharging, which can cause permanent damage or shorten its lifespan. The ultra-compact LVD21 is easy to install and can be used in a variety of applications, including RV and off-grid energy storage.

In addition to protecting against overcharging and over-discharging, the Load Logic technology incorporated in our Battery Isolators (ABS3) and LVDs (LVD21) ensures that both lead-acid and auxiliary batteries are operated optimally and without interference. The programmable and solid-state technology, combined with Cool Terminal Technology, allows for peak efficiency and reliability in battery management systems, making our products an ideal choice for customers seeking reliable, efficient, lasting, and durable battery management solutions.

Our ultra-compact SS Smart Battery Isolators (ABS3) and LVDs (LVD21) are cutting-edge products that can help to solve potential issues when using lead-acid chassis batteries with auxiliary battery systems. They are designed to protect the battery system from damaging conditions, extend its lifespan, and ensure reliable and efficient operation. With the increasing use of battery-powered devices, the importance of battery management systems cannot be overstated, and our programmable, ultra-compact products are well-positioned to meet the needs of customers in this growing market.
