Optimize Trolling Motors with RELiON Lithium Batteries
RELiON lithium batteries are the idyllic choice for an efficient boating experience.
Every component of a boat must work together for your customers to create those unforgettable experiences on the water. A fault in a boat’s system can quickly turn a picture-perfect day into a nightmare. This is why consumer demand for lithium batteries is growing rapidly as more boat owners are realizing the many benefits over lead-acid powered systems.
RELiON Battery provides an extensive selection of reliable and high performing lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery options for use in a variety of marine applications. Although the first commercial lithium-ion battery was developed over three decades ago, the use of LFP batteries in high power applications is still relatively new. As a result, top-tier lithium battery manufacturers, like RELiON, have had to continually innovate and build their knowledge of the technology to maintain a competitive advantage. Lithium batteries contain much more sophisticated technology than lead-acid batteries, so designing, engineering, testing, and manufacturing the highest-quality lithium batteries requires highly developed technical skills and expertise.
RELiON offers lithium batteries with an intelligent Battery Management System (BMS) that monitors and manages temperatures, performance, and charge rates to keep the battery operating safely and maximizes the lifespan up to 10 times longer than traditional lead-acid batteries.
RELiON lithium batteries also require zero maintenance, allowing boaters more time out on the open water. Since trolling motors require thrust, RELiON batteries are designed specifically to supply more power due to their negligible voltage drop when rapid acceleration is required. Lead-acid batteries are still curbed by voltage sag, a power quality issue facing many customers today.
Beyond that, the lighter weight of lithium batteries over the much heavier lead-acid batteries beholds undeniable advantages. Every pound added to a boat makes the boats draft even deeper and can ultimately affect the ride and performance. The weight savings taken off the stern improves both the range and wide-open throttle numbers for those days when boaters want to hammer down. Moreover, the power supply is not compromised with RELiON lithium batteries as it is with counterparts on the market, therefore consuming far less fuel. And there is more space for boaters’ storage when using a lightweight lithium battery.
RELiON lithium batteries offer better performance, longer power, and safer boating. Though it is true that lithium batteries have a higher up-front cost, the total cost of ownership is lower due to the increased lifetime. No maintenance and super long life make them a worthwhile investment and a smart long-term solution.
