RELiON’s HP Series is Ideal for Dual Purpose Applications. They offer the capability to deliver a burst of high current for a short period of time. These current requirements are typically necessary to start a boat, generator motor, or an air conditioning compressor. Depending on the application, a single RELiON HP battery can be used for starting, then double as a power source for your boat house needs. These batteries apply to marine and recreational vehicle applications. RELiON’s HP Series batteries are a perfect compromise between the unique demands of starting service, deep cycling and low amp draw service.The RB100-HP now features 6 terminals for maximum installation flexibility.
FAQ – Ask the Experts!
Can I have more than one HP battery connected?
No, HP batteries are not allowed to be connected in parallel with other HP batteries.
Do I connect HP batteries in series or parallel?
HP batteries are not allowed to be connected in parallel or in series.
Can I connect my HP battery with another battery bank such as Lithium or Lead Acid?
Direct connections between an HP battery and another bank are not allowed. However, indirect connections are allowed through the proper installation of a regulating device such as an Isolator, DC/DC charger, or Relays.
Can I use my existing lead-acid battery charger (Wet, AGM or Gel) to charge RELiON lithium iron phosphate batteries?
In general, lithium batteries are charger-friendly. Most chargers today have a lithium charge profile, which is what we recommend using. In most instances, AGM or gel charge profiles will work with our batteries. We do not recommend the use of a flooded charge profile with our batteries. These chargers may reach the overvoltage protection limit and disconnect. It won’t damage the battery but will likely result in charger faults. Before using any charger with RELiON batteries, it is best to first verify the charge profile is within our specifications. The specifications can be found in our Charging Instructions. Be sure to read over our charging guide in detail prior to charging your RELiON battery.
How much can I discharge my RB100-HP dual-purpose battery and still start my engine?
The RB100-HP can be discharged up to 70% (30% state of charge) and still start most engines.
Is it okay to connect my starting battery in parallel with one of my RELiON lithium trolling motor batteries to assist with starting if needed?
Yes, however, if you do so, it is required that you use a switch to isolate each battery so that they can be charged separately with a multi-bank charger.
