Maintenance

Recharge

  • Recharge the battery only with a specific charger for 12V LiFePO4 starting batteries.
  • Both vehicle and battery charger need to limit voltage between 14.0-15.0 volts when charging. The battery can not be full charged if charging voltage less than 14.0 Volts, and the battery would be damaged if the charging voltage over 15.0 Volts.
  • It is possible to recharge the battery without to disconnect it from the vehicle with a battery charger in BC LITHIUM Series (BC LITHIUM 1500 or BC LITHIUM 7000). If you use a battery charger of another brand for LiFePO4 batteries, we recommend to read carefully all the manufacturer's instruction and to remove the battery from the vehicle before charging.
  • If the battery becomes hot to the touch, stop charging. Allow battery to cool before resuming.

Maintenance

The lifespan of a battery depends on many factors, both environmental and related to its use. For chemical and structural reasons, it is possible to estimate for LiFePO4 BC LITHIUM BATTERIES a double lifespan (on average 2 to 4 years) vs lead/acid batteries. For proper maintenance, please follow the recommendations below.
  • It is of utmost importance that the battery always remains in a state of optimal charge, at a minimum voltage around 13.2/13.3 Volts (which is about 80/90% of its capacity). We recommend the usage of a battery charger/maintainer BC DUETTO or BC LITHIUM. Without a battery maintenance, disconnect the battery from the vehicle or the absorption of the vehicle's electrical system can drain your battery quickly.
  • When you install the battery on board and then periodically thereafter, check the vehicle's charging system (alternator/regulator) and verify that the voltage does not exceed 15 Volts (a higher voltage may damage the battery cells).
  • Keep the connecting poles clean and securely fastened.
  • The battery is factory sealed and requires no topping up of any fluid. Never attempt to open the battery.
