First LiFePO4 battery specific to electric outboard motors

LiTime has launched what it terms is the market’s first lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery designed specifically for electric outboard motors.

The two electric power batteries for boats: the 12V 100Ah OBM battery and the 36V 100Ah OBM battery are specifically designed for marine electric outboard motors.

They feature IP65 dust and water resistance, upgraded low-temperature protection, and smart capabilities with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity via QR code scan, allowing users to check power status on their smartphones.

The advanced battery management system (BMS) provides more than 20 types of protection, supports 500A/1S discharge, automatic recovery within 30 seconds after overload, and enhanced resistance to moisture and salt spray.

The 12V 100Ah OBM (Outboard Motor) LiFePO4 battery supports configurations up to 5S5P for a total of 60V 500Ah, accommodating 24V, 36V, 48V, and 60V outboard motors.

Step forward

With an energy capacity of 1280Wh, it can manage surge discharge currents up to 500A for 1 second, handling the initial high current during motor start-up.

It also features a sustained discharge rate of 1.2C for 3 minutes and can automatically recover from overload protection within 30 seconds.

The 36V 100Ah OBM (Outboard Motor) LiFePO4 battery supports 4P2S configurations, and two in series can power a 72V electric outboard motor up to 10hp.

A single battery is equivalent to three 12V 100Ah lead-acid batteries in series. It also offers over 4000 deep cycles.

The launch of the new electric outboard motor batteries marks a step forward in LiTime’s 2024 strategy which aims to broaden the application of their batteries across various scenarios.

The official debut will take place at ICAST Sportfishing Trade Show taking place from July 16 – 19 2024 in Orlando.
