ReLion Unveils New Lithium Batteries
By Chad Elmore16 January 2019
ReLion Battery has launched its next generation of lithium batteries, the Insight Series. The company said it is the first scalable lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) drop-in replacement battery available in industry-standard sizes, with no extra hardware needed when connected in parallel. The batteries are designed to replace lead-acid batteries in deep cycle applications such as golf carts, marine, renewable energy systems, floor machines and scissor lifts.
The battery series includes the company’s SuperSmart battery management system (BMS) which it said maximizes battery performance, even when connected in parallel. LED indicator lights that display the battery’s status at a glance.
The new batteries use intelligent cooling, based on a passive heat management system to quickly remove heat from inside the battery during conditions of high discharge and recharge currents, said the company, which it said prevents over-heating of critical components, which also extends the life of the battery, said the company.
The InSight Series batteries come in GC2 size 12v, 24v, 36v, and 48v configurations. The company said it will launch additional InSight Series standard battery drop-in sizes later this year.
