Hailing from the USA, RELiON is the latest addition to our extensive product portfolio. The battery world has the potential to be revolutionised by the strides that are being made in lithium technology; it is the fastest growing battery chemistry and has exciting long-term potential. RELiON batteries make use of the latest lithium advances and boast lifespans of up to 10 years.
Safe and reliable due to selection of the supremely stable LiFePO4 chemistry as a basis, RELiON batteries are constructed to the highest of standards, ensuring excellence in every component and at every stage of construction. This incredible level of attention to detail results in batteries that compete on a global scale. Lithium iron phosphate chemistries are also more environmentally friendly than lead acid, due to the exclusion of toxic heavy metals from their make-up.
RELiON utilise the latest LiFePO4 chemistry to produce a battery that competes on a global scale. The key to RELiON’s brilliance lies in its devotion to excellence in every component and at every stage of production. It is a mission of RELiON to prove that not all lithium batteries were created equal; years of careful research and crafting ensure utmost consumer confidence and safety.
RELiON lithium-ion batteries possess the best cycle life of any batteries available from Alpha Batteries, achieving a phenomenal peak performance of over 5000 cycles.
LIGHTWEIGHT & SMALLER IN SIZE | UNIQUE FEATURES
RELiON lithium batteries are up to 66% lighter than lead acid. This significant reduction in weight results in greater fuel economy, more speed and less wear and tear on your craft in the long term. They are also up to 33% smaller than lead acid equivalents, reducing the space required for storage and facilitating fitting into more compact spaces.
SAFE & STABLE CHEMISTRY | UNIQUE FEATURES
RELiON batteries use the superior Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) chemistry, which can withstand high operating temperatures and can be rapidly recharged safely.
RELiON have also added a host of additional safety features, including:
- Anti-inflammatory coating
- Automatic temperature-based cut-off
- Built-in safety fuse
- High-pressure safety vent
Explosion-proof stainless steel cell casings
LOW LIFE-TIME COST | UNIQUE FEATURES
Although the initial outlay for LiFePO4 batteries may be higher, RELiON LiFePO4 rewards its investor with up to 10 times the number of cycles that can be achieved by lead acid.
BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT | UNIQUE FEATURES
Due to the elimination of toxic heavy metals from their chemistry, lithium iron phosphate batteries are better for the environment than traditional batteries.
LOWEST RATE OF SELF DISCHARGE | UNIQUE FEATURES
RELiON Lithium batteries possess the lowest self-discharge rates of any batteries available from Alpha Batteries losing only 8% of capacity for the first month and 2% per month thereafter (vs. 4-6% per month for lead acid). They can therefore be stored unused for longer and charged at your convenience.
QUICK CHARGE CAPABILITIES | UNIQUE FEATURES
Lithium batteries allow charging speeds 2-3 times faster than lead acid equivalents. They can also charge to full in one session, making the recharge process less arduous. With RELiON, you can charge and get going fast.
MINIMAL CORROSION | UNIQUE FEATURES
Corrosion increases resistance within a battery circuit and can lead to greater problems that can drastically shorten the life of a battery and potentially damage the system it is installed in. Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are free from corrosive acids, alleviating a major cause of corrosion.
INCREASED RESISTANCE TO TEMPERATURES | UNIQUE FEATURES
Lithium-Ion batteries are able to tolerate drastic temperature fluctuations, making them reliable power partners for extreme applications.
GOOD FOR REMOTE & LIVE ABOARD LEISURE APPLICATIONS | UNIQUE FEATURES
Lithium-Ion batteries are the ultimate choice for installation in UPS, Live Aboard,Leisure & off-grid technology, such as solar panels, due to their long life and temperature resistance.
SUPREME DEEP CYCLING CAPABILITIES | UNIQUE FEATURES
A Lithium-Ion battery is capable of discharging close to all of its power without sacrificing efficiency, whereas the classic lead acid battery can typically only withstand around 50% DoD before performance begins to flounder.
UNSURPASSED VIBRATION CONTROL | UNIQUE FEATURES
Rock-solid vibration control due to the superior internal construction of Lithium-Ion batteries ensures safety and performance even in rough conditions.
BETTER CYCLIC ABILITY THAN FLA, SFL, AGM & GEL TUBULAR BATTERIES | UNIQUE FEATURES
LiFePO4 is able to cycle to 80 percent depth of discharge over 5000 times, which equates to over 13 years of performance. No other chemistries come close to competing with Lithium’s battery life span.
NON SPILL | UNIQUE FEATURES
Being dry cell and sealed like Gel Tubular batteries, Lithium-Ion batteries have no liquid electrolyte that can be spilt and are air transportable.
INSTALLATION AND STORAGE VERSATILITY | UNIQUE FEATURES
Like AGM & Gel Tubular batteries, batteries of Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry can be installed and stored at unusual angles, adapting to your equipment and requirements.
FIT & FORGET | UNIQUE FEATURES
Once a Lithium-Ion battery is fitted it requires no maintenance, allowing you to enjoy the things that really matter.
Lithium batteries operate without gassing, but a safety vent allows the controlled release of gas if pressure within the cells becomes too high.
