Discover Battery, a British Columbia, Canada-based designer, manufacturer and distributor of battery solutions for range of industries, has launched its Lithium Blue LiFePO4 Battery Series for the recreational marine industry.

The batteries are a major upgrade from lead-acid counterparts, according to Discover. They are half the weight, recharge up to five times faster and can be charged at any time without affecting capacity or overall performance. And a lithium battery has been shown to last up to 10 times longer than its AGM, deep-cycle counterpart.

In addition, the lithium iron phosphate batteries charge up to two times faster than standard lithium power.

The batteries can be monitored on connected devices via the Lithium Blue app, which gives users 24/7 access to battery state of charge, voltage, operating current, temperature and diagnostic details.

The batteries are available in standard BCI G24 and GC12 sizes in 12-volt models for deep-cycle boat applications; in addition, 12-volt, 24-volt and 36-volt models are available for trolling motor applications.

The batteries can also be paralleled for greater capacity and longer runtimes.

Discover Battery president Lee Adams summarized the advantages in a statement: “While lithium batteries are more expensive than lead-acid batteries to purchase initially, they deliver a lower total ownership cost,” said Adams. “It takes two lead-acid batteries to equal the usable capacity of one Lithium Blue, which lasts the same life as up to ten sets of the same lead-acid batteries.

“Boaters double their initial cost of a lead acid battery to get a lithium battery, however, they repeat the purchase up to ten times over replacing old batteries to get the same usable capacity of just one... Lithium Blue battery,” Adams said.
