Caravan Lithium Batteries
Lithium vs AGM Batteries:
Many Caravan and RV owners are replacing their AGM battery with a lithium battery, but why? Let's find out:
1. Life Cycle:
A lithium battery has almost double the life cycle of an AGM battery. As a result, you will need to replace an AGM much quicker than a lithium.
As mentioned above, an AGM battery will need to be replaced sooner than a lithium battery. Therefore, although AGM batteries are initially cheaper, you will need to fork out additional money much sooner. Lithium batteries also have higher efficiency, performance, longevity, and minimal maintenance – meaning lithium batteries provide more bang for buck!
3. Depth of Discharge:
As a general principle, Lithium batteries have a higher depth of discharge (DoD) in comparison to an AGM. A lithium battery will provide 80% DoD, while an AGM will only provide 50% DoD.
To give you a real world example, a 100Ah lithium battery will give you 80 Usable Amp Hours, while a 100Ah AGM battery will only give you 50 Usable Amp Hours.
Due to different depth of discharges, lithium and AGM batteries do not provide the same Amp Hours in the same capacity. Lithium is able to provide more energy in a smaller capacity. For example:
125 Ah of Lithium = 200 Ah of AGM
200 Ah of Lithium = 360 Ah of AGM
300 Ah of Lithium = 480 Ah of AGM
5. Dimensions and weight:
Lithium batteries are up to 70% lighter and smaller than AGM batteries due to AGM batteries containing more lead in their makeup.

Benefits of A Lithium Caravan Battery
A lithium caravan battery is a popular option for Australian caravan power systems for good reason – they are half the weight and size of an AGM battery. Plus, they promise higher efficiency and better life cycles. A lithium battery has a Depth of Discharge of almost 80%. This means a 200 Amp Hour lithium caravan battery delivers 160 usable amp hours before you need to recharge it.
