Long-haul trucking, an industry integral to global commerce, faces the challenge of improving the efficiency of sleeper cab hotel loads for driver comfort, safety, and increased sustainability. This whitepaper advocates for a solution: adopting all-electric lithium-ion auxiliary power units (APUs) to power the hotel loads of sleeper cab semi-trucks.
We put our LiFePO4 batteries head to head with AGM lead acid batteries to compare their output in increasingly cold temperatures. This study was conducted at various temperatures and shows that our lithium iron phosphate batteries outperform lead acid AGMs batteries at every temperature.
Historically, lead acid batteries have powered much of the industrial equipment market, including liftgates. In this study, we test the historic lead acid battery compared to the performance and advantages of lithium iron phosphate, including long-term cost savings and increased capacity, in a liftgate application.
At the start of 2022, Dragonfly Energy and Keystone RV announced an exclusive agreement, news that the RV industry and dealers had never seen before. The partnership introduced Dragonfly Energy lithium-ion batteries as standard or optional equipment as a part of the SolarFlex package on all Keystone fifth wheels and travel trailers, changing the game for the industry and for RV dealers.
Making the switch from traditional lead acid batteries to exploring the potential LiFePO4 solutions have to offer, this comprehensive analysis dives deeper into the testing performed in ‘The Robust Ways to Power Liftgates’ whitepaper above.
Offering mobile surveillance units for a variety of businesses, including construction sites, events, retail, and more, this company made the switch from lead acid to lithium-ion batteries to provide long-lasting, maintenance-free power.
Battle Born Batteries’ Technical Specialists go over LiFePO4 batteries, lithium power system components, proper and safe system installation, and more in this Building Complete Lithium Power Systems for RVs educational session.
