Frank C Posted September 10, 2022 Share Posted September 10, 2022 The original PowerTron lead acid wet cell batteries on our Elite II have worked well for 4 years of camping now, and still take and hold a charge well, but I’m considering an upgrade. The 4 batteries in parallel give about 100 amp-hours of usable capacity (I never go below about a 60% level when discharging). We have no solar and no inverter. The batteries are used only for powering the 12 volt DC items such as lights, water pump, MaxxAir ceiling fan and bathroom exhaust fan, USB ports to charge phones, etc. (fridge on propane). I’m not looking to run the air conditioner or microwave from the batteries. We just need the basics when we do overnight Harvest Host/boondocking stops with no hookups on the way to our destination campgrounds. As a replacement for the old PowerTrons, I am considering upgrading to a Lithium battery, looking at the BattleBorn 270 amp-hour battery pictured below. Still not planning to add an inverter or solar. Just looking to gain some significant amp-hour capacity, eliminate the (minimal) maintenance of checking and adding water, and shed about 150 pounds of weight as well! Anyone have any experience with this particular BattleBorn? https://battlebornbatteries.com/product/battleborn-270ah-12v-lihtium-deep-cycle-8d-battery/ 1 2019 Oliver Legacy Elite II - Hull #461 Tow Vehicle: 2019 Ford F-250 SuperCab 4x4, 6.2L Flex-Fuel engine Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
