What Makes BSLBATT’s Group 31 Lithium Battery Better

As lithium batteries have become more abundant in the marketplace, so too have the competitors that aspire to the distinguished benchmark set by BSLBATT. In this week’s blog, we’re taking a closer look at the features and benefits that place the BSLBATT 12V Lithium-Ion Battery far ahead of the competition. We’ll take a deep dive into battery design, features, and what they mean to you in daily use. Launched in early 2019, our team set out with specific design criteria based on our analyses of where existing lithium batteries fell short and resolved not to bring a battery to market unless it satisfied every criterion. The result was a lithium battery with the design elements that truly set it apart from any other option on the market today: Group 31 Lithium Batteries size case, heat sink, Robust battery management system (BMS), robust internal components, and industry certifications.

1. The Case Size

We designed the BSLBATT lithium battery from the ground up, beginning with the case to match Group 31 Lithium Batteries. The BSLBATT lithium battery was the first drop-in lithium solar battery that’s made for easier installation. Replacing a lead-acid bank could be performed by one person in about a half-hour. Another advantage of the Group 31 Lithium Batteries case size is that it’s modular. One of the other design features we insisted on with the Group 31 Lithium Batteries case is its IP67 dust and water protection rating which has been certified by an independent laboratory. The bolted and gasket sealed enclosure permitted no water to enter the case while submerged under six inches of water for 30 minutes.

2. The Heat Sink

Another unique feature of BSLBATT LiFePO4 batteries not found on any other battery available in the market today is its heat sink. The heatsink is an aluminum plate set in the cover that dissipates heat generated during operation, maximizing the life of internal components. The heat sink is a critical design feature because a single LiFePO4 battery is capable of 100-amp continuous discharge. This high output translates to more “zip” from the motor in light electric vehicle applications and greater torque in lifting applications when compared to lower grade lead-acid or lithium options. Most comparable lithium options are only capable of 50 amp continuous or don’t list a continuous rating at all.

3. BSLBATT robust battery management system (BMS)

Moving on to other internal features that set BSLBATT LiFePO4 batteries apart from others is its robust battery management system (BMS). The BSLBATT BMS features a four-layer circuit board measuring 5.75” x 8.625” with an additional heat sink included. A Battery Management System (BMS) is an intelligent component of a battery pack responsible for advanced monitoring and management. It is the brain behind the battery and plays a critical role in its levels of safety, performance, charge rates, and longevity.

Our BMS is designed to be a long-term solution for our customers with the highest level of safety in mind. Advanced algorithms and electronics ensure high precision measurements:

● Functionally safe

● Fast and efficient balancing

● Shortened charging time

● Improved range per charge

● Maximum battery life

Keep Your Batteries and Your Family Safe With A BMS

The battery management system is the primary component in the battery pack that monitors all of these conditions. Above all, it keeps your batteries operating safely and optimally so you can get out there and stay out there with peace of mind.

4. Internal Components

Now that we’ve reviewed the internal design features of the BSLBATT’s Group 31 Lithium Battery in-depth, we’ll move on to some product features that competing models may not offer. These design features make the Group 31 Lithium Battery one of the most user-friendly batteries available. First, the Group 31 Lithium Battery features a sophisticated controller area network bus (CANbus) that allows the batteries to communicate real-time operating statistics like the voltage, current, state of charge, and state of health. The information communicated by CANbus can be integrated with other electronic systems by original equipment manufacturers. However, the CANbus also makes InSight batteries more user-friendly to end users alike by making BSLBATT’s Fuel Gauge battery meter a plug-and-play accessory. No shunt, no programming, just plug it into the first BSLBATT battery in the string and the Fuel Gauge reports the summed state of charge of all connected batteries. Second, besides the normal operation mode, the Group 31 Lithium Battery also features a sleep and pulse recovery operation mode to conserve power. If your Group 31 Lithium Battery senses no charge or discharges current for more than a day or two it will go into sleep mode. Pulse recovery operation will turn the battery on for one minute every 10 minutes to check for current. Also coming in 2021 is a mountable remote switch to turn all batteries on or off without having to open your battery compartment.
