While RV battery solutions seem to be changing by the month there has been one brand that seems to stick out among those that want the best performance and longevity. Lithionics, designs, builds, tests, and again tests their batteries in the USA. Watch James (thefitRV.com) as he tours the Florida factory with, Lithionics CEO, Stephen Tartaglia.
James is a former rocket scientist, a USA Cycling certified coach, and lifelong fitness buff. When he's not driving the RV, or modifying the RV (or - that one time - doing both at once), you can find him racing bicycles, or building furniture, or making music. In his spare time, he works for a large IT company. Read more about James - TheFitRV.
Lithionics is a premier lithium battery manufacture. Their batteries are in many different applications - RV's, boat, auto and more. Lithionics has endorsed Zamp charge controllers for use with lithium batteries.
Zamp engineers reprogrammed the 30 amp solar charge controller to charge LiFeP04 & LTO. Both are lithium based batteries used in RV's. We've also reconfigured the Zamp 30AD and 60 amp solar controllers that will do the same. They are all still able to charge common lead acid batteries.
We asked Lithionics to test the programming in our charge controllers. Charging the batteries the right way is important. Several controllers in the market are unsafe for this job. Generally the cheap controllers are inadequate for charging lithium batteries. Lithionics has exact specifications on how their batteries should be charged. Zamp Solar controllers pass all the tests.
