Why We Use Lithium Iron Phosphate

Lithium Iron Phosphate, or LiFePO4, batteries are one of the most durable and reliable energy sources on the market and a drastic improvement over lead-acid in safety, weight, capacity and shelf life.

Benefits

  1. Safety - Lithium Iron Phosphate is the safest lithium on the market. It will not explode or catch on fire. It is absent of potentially volatile chemicals that are found in other lithium cells.
  2. Long Lifespan - Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries have up to 6,000+ life cycles without significantly decreasing performance. That means they last for years and years. By comparison, the average lifetime of lead-acid batteries is just two years.
  3. High Efficiency - Lithium Iron Phosphate has 100% of its capacity available for use. It can be quickly charged, discharged and recharged again and again, reducing downtime while increasing efficiency. This makes it a great fit for a variety of applications.
  4. No Active Maintenance - It does not require active maintenance to extend its service life. The batteries show no memory effects and can be stored for long periods of time because of the extremely low self-discharge rate (<3% per month).
  5. Flexible Use - Because they emit no fumes or require little air flow, you can use them inside or outside. They can be stacked on top of each other or can be used in any position.
  6. Peaks and Valleys Energy Use - Using Lithium Iron Phosphate for energy storage, you can optimize usages and help solve the peaks and valleys that occurs during high and low energy demand usages. This also can help to stabilize the grid from intense demand cycles by allowing you to use the stored energy when you need it.
  7. Renewable Power - For the first time, green energy can not only be generated but can be effectively stored and used as needed. You can harness the power of the sun and use it over and over again.
  8. Lightweight and Portable -  Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are relatively small and light weight. Compared to lead-acid batteries, lithium provides great energy density at about half the mass and weight.
  9. Energy Independence - Energy storage allows you to be independent of the grid so you can have energy where and when you want it. So, no worries about black outs, brown outs, or when the grid goes down.

Safety

The Lion Safari ME is made from Lithium Iron Phosphate and is the safest solar generator on the market. Because it does not emit any toxic fumes or gases, you can use it inside your home, tent, RV or any other confined area. Lithium Iron Phosphate is the highest grade, safest battery composition available and has no potentially volatile chemistry. The ME goes through extensive testing from initial design through production and before it ever leaves Lion Energy.

FAQ

What is the Safari ME?

The Safari ME is the latest in Lithium battery technology for portable power needs. It replaces traditional noisy gas generators with the safest Lithium batteries on the market today. It is light weight for the amount of power it has. Think of it as a safe, silent, renewable generator and without the need for gas, pollution or all that weight.

What does the Safari ME power?

You can use it to power a wide variety of devices like cell phones, laptops, tablets refrigerators, freezers, TVs, lights, hot plates or grills, power tools, and the list goes on. Virtually any device you can plug into a standard wall outlet, the Safari ME can power it.

How can you figure out how long the Safari ME will power specific devices?

The ME has a continuous 2,000W of power output (watts of power output) and over 900Wh (922 watt hours) of stored energy. That means you can power devices that require up to 2,000W of power for various periods of time. To calculate how long the ME can power a device, use this formula: Wh / W = Estimated Run Time. For example, if the device requires 50W of power and the ME has 922Wh then the device can be powered for approximately 18.5 hours (922 / 50 = 18.44)

How long can the Safari ME hold a charge?

It will maintain its charge for up to a year without having to charge it. This is known as shelf life or storage life. Each month is will lose a little bit of the charge, more in the first month and less each month thereafter. Over a year it will average about 2-3% a month. Just plug it in and recharge it anytime. We recommend using frequently – in the house, outside, on adventures and ready for emergencies.

Can the Safari ME power an A/C unit?

The Safari ME can power some AC units depending upon the brand and the watts each AC unit requires. Like with most devices, the power consumption varies from brand to brand and model to model. The ME can output 2,000W continuously. Check out our videos tab for a detailed review on the ME.

How can I connect the Safari ME to my house?

You would need a home integration kit, which is generally found at home improvement/electrical supply/hardware stores.

Can the Safari ME be used to store solar power or solar energy?

The Safari ME is a great energy storage unit for solar power from solar panels. It can store 922Wh (watt hrs) of energy.

Why should I buy the Safari ME?

The Safari ME is made from the highest quality and longest lasting battery technology – Lithium Iron Phosphate. The Safari ME is safe, silent and renewable, unlike gas-powered generators. The ME gives your power anywhere, anytime. 

Will the Safari ME work with power tools?

Yes, most power tools will work just fine with the ME. Some require more energy at startup (a surge) and may need to have a "soft start" component added to the ME that can be found at home improvement, electric supply, or hardware stores.
