|Lithium batteries are becoming the optimal choice for replacing batteries of all sizes. There are lots of different types, sizes, and manufacturers of lithium batteries. Where you buy your lithium batteries will likely depend on the application and type of battery you need. For instance, you can find AA lithium batteries in most brick-and-mortar stores. But 12 volt lithium marine battery and 12 volt lithium RV battery aren’t as commonly found.
Best Stores to Buy 12 volt lithium batteries
Local brick-and-mortar stores are a great option if you’re looking to buy small lithium batteries such as AA batteries or perhaps a replacement battery for a cell phone. You’re likely to find lithium versions of common battery sizes near the checkout in most big box stores. However, you may want to head to an electronics or cell phone store if you’re looking to buy more specialized varieties of lithium batteries.
Occasionally, you’ll find a local battery, boat, or auto/RV shop carrying 12 volt lithium batteries for more serious off-grid power needs. However, these places may not carry the particular brand you’re looking for. Sometimes it is best to look at online stores, like Inverters R Us and the altE Store, for a particular size and brand of battery. Many lithium batteries are also available on Amazon.
Lithium Battery Installers
Your best option for buying lithium batteries may be to purchase them through a professional battery installer. This is particularly true if you have a large project, such as designing a battery bank for an off-grid home or upgrading the batteries in your RV or boat. One advantage to having your installation team buy the batteries for you is that they will hopefully know exactly what to purchase and can help you design your system.
Additionally, installers can often buy in bulk and get a better price than you can. However, it’s always a good idea to double-check the pricing you get from an installer to make sure they’re passing some of these savings along to you.
Direct from 12 volt Lithium Battery Manufacturers
Some lithium battery companies might only sell through dealers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). However, a few lithium battery manufacturers sell their batteries direct to the public. Being able to buy direct from the manufacturer offers a few advantages.
The battery manufacturer often knows more about their batteries than anyone and can answer any questions you have. They can even help you design the optimal system. Additionally, working directly with the manufacturer means you don’t pay a price markup to a middleman.
At BSLBATT Lithium Batteries, customers can purchase lithium batteries in several ways. Buy our batteries directly through us, through professional installers, dealers, or even through our local US warehouse.
How Much Do 12 volt Lithium Batteries Cost?
Lithium batteries typically cost 3-4 times more than traditional alkaline or lead-acid batteries. A 12-volt lithium deep-cycle battery retails for about $900 from most manufacturers, depending on the battery’s capacity. For example, BSLBATT’s 100 Ah, 12-volt deep-cycle lithium iron phosphate battery factory ships for $260.
We also offer a 270 Ah 8D version of the same battery for $600 ex-factory. The price of lithium batteries increases as capacity increases.

Proprietary BMS System
BSLBATT protects all of our lithium batteries with a proprietary internal battery management system (BMS). BSLBATT ’s BMS manages cell current, cell voltage, cell temperature, and charge balancing, and monitors the battery for internal shorts. The BMS ensures that the lithium battery is operating within its safe limits. It also optimizes the life and health of each battery.
Every Battery is Capacity and Load-Tested
Every BSLBATT lithium battery is individually load-tested to ensure the BMS is functioning properly and protecting the battery. If the BMS fails, the battery is susceptible to damage if unsafe conditions occur. If you buy lithium batteries without a reliable BMS system in place, you’ll be at risk of causing unnecessary damage to your battery investment or worse.
BSLBATT stands behind all of our batteries with a 10-year warranty. This warranty is an 8-year full replacement manufacturer’s defect warranty and 2 years prorated. Additionally, we design all of our batteries to last 3,000 – 6,000 cycles, at which point they’ll still hold 75% to 80% of their energy capacity.
Fully Discharge the Battery
Most lithium battery manufacturers limit you to discharging down to 20% of their capacity. Not BSLBATT. Our batteries use Square aluminum shell lithium battery cells that, when combined with our proprietary BMS, allow for 100% discharge. This means you get all of the power available in your batteries, and you get more for your money.
Most Certified-Listed Batteries On The Planet
All of BSLBATT’s batteries carry multiple certifications that verify their quality. The lithium cells in BSLBATT’s batteries are UL 1642 certified and the battery packs themselves are UL 2054 and IEC 62133 certified. Additionally, each battery has a Department of Transportation listing of 38.3, which is required even to allow them to be shipped. This resumé of certifications and listings is one more reason to put BSLBATT at the top of your list when you’re looking for where to buy lithium batteries.
Are Lithium Batteries Worth It?
Now that you know where to buy your lithium batteries, you might be asking yourself if they’re worth it. You’ve already determined you need a battery to store power, so the real question is, “are lithium batteries worth it compared to other types of deep-cycle batteries?” The answer is yes.
Lithium batteries offer many advantages over lead-acid batteries. Lithium batteries last 5-6 times longer than lead-acid batteries, they’re more efficient, they charge faster, they weigh less, and they’re safer. Even though a Battle Born lithium battery will cost 3-4 times as much as a lead-acid battery, the benefits end up saving you money in the long run.
