Tips for buying Deep Cycle Lithium Batteries

What to look for when purchasing a Lithium battery?

Before purchasing a lithium battery, it’s important to do your research and homework. 
There are several things to consider, these include:

• Battery application
What do you want to power with your battery? Assess the amount of power you require and the duration for which you need it, whether it’s for your vehicle, or equipment. If your power needs are over a prolonged period, it’s recommended to consider investing in a battery that can consistently deliver the required power supply. 

• Voltage
Most camping batteries sold in Australia have a voltage of 12V, as this is usually enough to power most applications, including those for camping and boating.  

• Cell quality
Choose a battery with high-quality cells that are reliable and long-lasting.  

• Weight
A lithium battery is much lighter than lead-acid, but if it is too light then it could be due to use of undersized or lower capacity cells. For example, if 100Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery is less than 10kg, there is a possibility that it is not a genuine 100Ah battery.

• Maximum continuous discharge and charge currents
The rated maximum continuous discharge and charge current determines how powerful the battery is and it is a key indicator of quality and performance. The cheaper batteries have a maximum discharge and charge limit of 0.5C (50A for 100Ah battery), whereas the pricier options typically run at 1C (100A for 100Ah battery) or higher.

Lithium batteries maintain the highest standards of quality, safety, and reliability. 


It is important to match battery capacity to the required loads and duration.
Example: A 100AH Lithium Deep Cycle Battery with a load of 628Wh per day, should provide sufficient charge for approximately 2 days. See tables below.

Energy Consumption

Battery Capacity

If using high powered appliances (e.g. coffee machine, microwave or kettle), the capacity of an AGM can be greatly reduced.
Capacity of the battery should be appropriate to support the loads for desired duration.

Not all lithium batteries are made to the quality standards consumers expect. A good lithium battery should have a high-quality cell, a dependable Battery Management System, an acceptable guarantee, and sound construction. It is worth noting that Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) is considered to be a safe and reliable technology, however poorly designed or manufactured LFP batteries can still pose a risk to safety, despite the inherent safety advantages of the LFP chemistry.
