The marine environment can put unique demands on a batteries. Waves and rough water pound boat hulls, delivering jarring shock waves and vibration to certain vessels, whilst others are equipped with large arrays of power hungry electronic equipment from. So what to look for in a lithium marine battery?
Marine batteries fall into two camps, starting and habitation. First and foremost, it is important to understand that a deep cycle lithium marine battery cannot be used as a starter battery. This is because a starter battery is designed to supply extremely high current loads for very short periods which is the opposite requirements of a marine habitation battery. So assuming your vessels electrical system has a separate starting battery, then there is no reason why you cannot consider the benefits of lithium marine batteries.It is important to select a battery which is capable of meeting all of the power requirements of the vessel. Items such as spotlights, bait well pumps, trolling motors, electric down riggers, chart recorders and so on demand deep cycle batteries. The super series KS Energy lithium habitation batteries are ideal for these requirements because they are designed to provide a high current demand (up to 150 Amps) for long periods of time. This makes them ideal for power hungry items including trolling motors and electric pumps. Moreover, they continue to provide meet such demands without voltage dropping until they are nearly exhausted. Once they are exhausted, they can be recharged again at a later time with no degradation to their long life span. This is one reason why so many traditional batteries on boats have such a short life span.
