Bought for winter use so if. Powercuts can boil water and have light. For size of battery is not too heavy.
That was around 6 months ago (today being 19/12/22), I have been continuously using my original 200Ah battery since July with no issues whatsoever, and now I've added another 200Ah to my system. If you want to learn about the science behind the technology then all the information is available on Google or Youtube.Here's a brief overview of some of the main features and benefits of Eco-Green batteries. Integrated battery management system (BMS).
2 x 5v USB ports. Mains charging port with FREE mains charger and UK/EU plugs.
10 x the total lifespan. So who are Eco-Green Batteries? Eco-Green is a start-up company based on the edge of The Peak District in the UK, we are working in conjunction with a large Chinese battery producer.
We recognise that energy storage is the key to being able to being able to use renewable energy sources, which will greatly benefit our planet in the future; and we see that a product which lasts much longer than the alternatives means less waste going to landfill. My personal interest in LiFePO4 batteries comes from the fact that one of my main interests and hobbies is travelling in my campervan. I have owned a self built Ford Transit campervan since 2009 and I have travelled all over Europe and the UK from Cornwall to Scotland and as far afield as Austria, Switzerland and Ibiza, mainly pursuing my love of mountain biking, but also with some socialising thrown in too.. Over the years I've always been looking to improve my van and make it more self reliant, I don't tend to stay on campsites, preferring to "wildcamp" in more interesting locations, so therefore I very rarely have the opportunity use mains power and campsite hook ups.
The limitations of existing energy storage solutions have always been apparent to me. I wired my van myself and I've successfully used lead acid AGM batteries in conjunction with a battery to battery charger and solar panels throughout the 13 years that I've owned it with no issues. However now the time has come to make the switch, the technology is proven and the prices are becoming more reasonable for the average user. I haven't been into my house, (this is still the case 19/12/22). I have used no mains power whatsoever and I have run all the electrical systems in my van using one 200Ah battery in conjunction with 300W of solar panels and an Victron Energy Orion TR LiFePO4 battery to battery charger (which I highly recommend).I recently added a further 200Ah to my system giving me 400Ah in total. This is was with a view to running more power hungry devices via an inverter, such as an air fryer. After extensive personal use, I think that the performance of this technology is far superior to the lead acid technology that it supersedes.
The starting voltage is higher at around 13.4v and it stays high for significantly longer than with my previous lead acid setup which only started at 12.6v when fully charged. Running the engine with a DC-DC charger for a short time rapidly recharges the battery if the voltage has begun to drop. The battery can be run all the way down to "dead" and still recharge and function normally. The battery is much lighter than my previous setup. I have run my fridge, my water heater and various other appliances using 12v DC and a 240v DC- AC inverter, I have tried to "abuse" my battery as much as possible by using appliances which draw a lot of current and by running it down to completely dead, and it has performed brilliantly."To offer high performance energy storage and renewable energy solutions, at the best possible prices, whilst providing excellent customer service and actively seeking to improve the environment around us. We recognise the environmental benefits of the technology, but we also see the conflicts of interest, so we are trying to balance things out a bit in any way that we can.
We are only starting out so we can't change the world overnight, but we can change things within our circle of influence, and hopefully as we grow and our circle of influence expands we will be able to make bigger and better changes. What is different about Eco-Green Batteries' products when compared to the competition?
The answer is "Not that much. " Although the technology is relatively new, it's not particularly complicated. Companies have brand names and fancy graphics explaining why their product is superior and should command a premium price, but ultimately most of the products are very similar in every respect. Our product operates to the same performance levels and meets the same safety standards as the competitor's products, except that we want to have less impact on the environment and to try to and give a little bit back to the planet.
Are the products more expensive? No, on the contrary, due to close links with our supplier we are able to obtain premium quality products at very reasonable prices in relatively small quantities. Our products meet the same performance and safety standards as all our competitors (they are CE marked), and we offer the same guarantees, but we are also want to give something back and contribute to improving our environment, on a local level and a global scale. What's not to like? We are operating a system of continuous improvement and as we grow we aim to become more efficient, more environmentally conscious and still offer superior customer service, product support and great prices.
E aim to offer excellent customer service and we will always endeavour to find amicable solutions to any problems. N the unlikely event that there are any quality control issues our supplier wants to be informed immediately so that they can take corrective action.
After the initial 30 days, if an issue arises, just get in touch and let us know what the problem is. Twice during the last 6 months and it's transpired that the issue was with the customer's system or that they needed more capacity to run the appliances that they were using. Do you have a website?

Max connection in series: Up to 5 identical batteries for up to 60V. Connection in parallel, no more than 4 batteries. Our 12V 100AH LiFePO4 batteries can go through more than 2000 cycles at 100% depth of discharge and up to 8000 cycles at 50%. Depth of discharge (this is the recommended optimum method of usage) without any decrease in performance. Eco-Green12V 100AH LiFePO4 Batteries weigh approx 10KG, which is up to 50% lighter than lead acid batteries with the same capacity.LiFePO4 batteries have higher chemical stability are not prone to thermal runaway and will not overheat or catch on fire even if punctured. With no acid in the battery they are safe to mount in any position. The built-in Battery Management System (BMS) protects your battery from over charging and discharging, high current, short circuiting and low and high temperature fluctuations for increased performance and longer life. The BMS will automatically cut off the battery when the voltage drops below 2.3V. The Battery will automatically reactivate after the input has increased. Your support is much appreciated..
