 All LB series batteries have a number of features that are unique to their family. Including heated features, a bespoke app and unique communication protocols.

One of lithium’s biggest limitations from being globally accepted as standard is their limitations regarding operational temperatures. When in a low temperature state, and receiving charge from a charge source, 80W of that charge current will actively go (per battery) to the internal heating elements on the batteries to provide the well insulated cells with warmth to get them above (or keep them above) freezing. This allows charging and operation in even the most extreme environments that would otherwise not be an option. The temperature elevates at a rate of about 1'C every 8 minutes.

The LB series of batteries have communication ports for up to 16 batteries to be connected with communication cable. This, when paired with a communication box that is in active development and nearly ready for release, will allow collated information of the entire battery bank to be read from one single point.

Perhaps uniquely, the LB series of lithium battery also offers CANBUS connection ports and a communication protocol that we can provide to those who can make the best use of it.

Our premium battery deserves a premium BMS system and the LB series of batteries benefits from our bespoke AMPS app. Offering the client/user information on how long the battery has until it is fully charged or depleted, the current coming in or out of the battery (down to a fraction of an Amp), the state of charge of the battery, the capacity of the battery and the temperature of the battery system.

The app also has a number of user-first additions, including easy access to AMPS support information and the ability to rename your batteries to best organise what is what in your system.

When designing the LB series of batteries, we realised quickly that the advanced system required the highest build quality to ensure best operation for our users and customers. We have used only the best cells and housing we could find to ensure that this premium product performs and feels as good as you want it to.

The faceplate of all LB batteries features a small and simple battery monitor gauge to give you a brief estimate on the capacity remaining in the battery, at the push of a button.

While we hope we never need to service a battery, the top-plate of the lithium case is removable (sealed by screws) to gain access to the BMS and battery system within. This should only be done by AMPS technicians.

How the heater works - If the cell temperature is 0DegC or Lower the charge circuit is turned off. This means no charge can enter the cells. In the LB12100 there is a 100W heating element that warms the battery up above 5DegC. Once 5 DegC is achieved the charge circuit engages. The LB12200 models has 2x100W heaters.

Time scale to warm battery examples approximates:

-15DegC to +5DegC (15DegC ambient) - 30 minutes

-10DegC to +5DegC (0DegC ambient) - 30 minutes

-5DegC to +5DegC (-5DegC ambient) - 30 minutes

-15DegC to +5DegC (-15DegC ambient) - 40 minutes
