The LightningVolt Button works like a power switch to activate/deactivate your lithium boat battery. Use the LightningVolt Button when you intend to store the battery for an extended period. By deactivating the battery, the power consumption of the Battery Management System (BMS) is reduced to zero, enabling the battery to be stored without experiencing a drop in voltage or state of charge. It even shields the battery from parasitic draws which means you can store your battery in your boat, connected to your trolling motor, for extended periods without removing the battery terminal connections.
It’s also a battery safety mechanism! We recommend using the LightningVolt Button to deactivate the battery to ensure user safety and to prevent shorting out components while working on the boat’s battery circuit and during transportation.
For even more safety, our engineers include a pressure release valve in the battery case design. In a catastrophic event where the cells overheat or rupture, the vent will release instead.
Universal Center Terminals
Universal M8 terminals are used for easy installation in a range of applications. We even supply you with hardware necessary for securely connecting your battery to your trolling motor, fishing boat, or houseboat!
Onboard DC-DC Charge/Isolator
The LightningVolt DC to DC charger was loved by many users of our first gen design so our engineers made it a built-in feature on our new battery! The LightningVolt DC-DC onboard charger allows the battery to be charged by any 12-36V DC input can be used, like your alternator or solar array. We include this on every battery to enable direct charging without the addition of an isolator, switchgear, diode, or MPPT controller!
To prevent overloading your boat’s alternator, the charger smartly lowers input to 10A. It also incorporates an automatic disconnect feature to safeguard against draining your watercraft’s starting battery. Additional DC-DC chargers can be connected in parallel for faster charging. Or a compatible lithium charger can still be connected to the battery terminals for AC or rapid charging.
The DC-DC charger can also be wired to use your LightningVolt battery as an input source allowing you to draw a 12V current out of your 24V LightningVolt battery bank to charge a 12V lead acid starting battery or to power 12V graphs, sonar, or power poles!
BMS with Precise Safety Conditions
LightningVolt™ batteries are equipped with a built-in battery management system (BMS) that incorporates several safety features to protect the battery and enhance its lifespan. The LightningVolt batteries BMS features distinctive self-resetting cell protection, meaning that if the BMS trips to protect the battery, it will come back online automatically.
LightningVolt batteries have a high voltage disconnect feature, which prevents damage if an individual cell voltage exceeds the preset threshold. A similar feature is the low voltage disconnect, where the BMS prevents failure if an individual cell falls below the preset threshold. The BMS also includes thermal management protections, high current discharge surges, and short circuits, and is the first lithium battery to be freeze-cycle tested and vibration tested.
These precise safety features built-into each LightningVolt battery ensures safe and reliable operation for heavy duty trucking applications while maximizing its overall lifespan and performance. So, you can use your battery hard on the water and run your trolling motor all day.
