Lion Energy Safari UT 250 Lithium Battery
The Safari UT 250 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 plays simply remove the deep cycle lead-acid battery from your RV or boat and replace it with this superior performing battery.
Plus, the life of this Lithium battery is 14 times that of deep-cycle lead-acid batteries. The Safari UT 250 is also a great energy storage unit for solar power from panels on homes, cabins, and businesses and RVs.
The Safari UT 250 is virtually maintenance-free, meaning you dont have to use it or even trickle charge it every 3-4 months, deal with fluids since it doesnt 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.
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.
