It’s no secret that having a reliable power source is crucial for a successful RV trip. From running your electronics to keeping your refrigerator cool, having the right battery can make all the difference. As Lithium-ion batteries become the standard for boondockers, RVers and Van lifers to efficiently store energy on their adventures, it is important to know how to differentiate between the many lithium ion options out there.
You may think that a battery is a battery, right? Wrong. When it comes to batteries, you get what you pay for. In this article, we’ll explain to you the difference between a generic battery and a premium battery such as Xantrex batteries.
At Xantrex, we believe that RVers shouldn’t settle for generic batteries. That’s why we offer a range of high-quality batteries that are specifically designed for the demands of RVing. Here are just a few key reasons why Xantrex Batteries are superior to generic options:
Smart Batteries for RVing: Our batteries are designed for RVers with a built in battery monitoring system (BMS) and bluetooth connectivity making them SMART batteries. The BMS can regulate levels of charge and discharge based on the unique setup you have while the bluetooth connection sends you any notifications if the battery needs attention (eg. storage compartment too hot), allowing you to catch any potential issues early.
Rigorous testing & UL certification: One of the hallmarks of Xantrex is we only believe in delivering the best and therefore all of our products have gone through some of the strictest testing to ensure they can be trusted for all applications. Within our battery line, some of our batteries such as the 310 Ah and 410 Ah batteries have even achieved UL certification, one of the highest levels of standards that requires the design, construction and use to ensure safety and reliability. Not many batteries can claim this level of safety and quality.
High temperature rating: Our batteries are designed to charge up to 55C/131F without damage, making them perfect for even the hottest summer days. You can rest easy knowing that your battery won’t fail you when you need it most.
Proudly made in America: Many of our models such as the 310 and 410Ah are assembled right in the USA. If you have any issues with Xantrex batteries, you do not have to call a tech support team member an ocean away for help.
Expertise in vehicle power: We have a long history of expertise in vehicle power, and we know what it takes to keep your RV running smoothly. When you choose Xantrex batteries, you can trust that you’re getting a product that is specifically designed for the unique demands of RVing.
Compatibility with complementary products: Our batteries are designed to work seamlessly with Xantrex complementary products for RVs, such as Xantrex inverter chargers and solar panels. This means that you can easily build a complete power system that is tailored to your specific needs.
In conclusion, not all batteries are created equal, and settling for a generic option can leave you stranded and frustrated with any savings made up front may be eaten up by maintenance, higher insurance rates and interruptions to your road plans. At Xantrex, we believe that RVers deserve the best, which is why we offer high-quality, reliable batteries that are specifically designed for the demands of RVing.
