Welcome to the iTECH120X battery comparison by iTechworld. In this blog, we'll be taking a look at the original iTECH120X model and its newer 2023 counterpart. Although they have the same capacity according to iTechworld, there are some notable differences between them.
Battery Comparison - new versus old iTECH120X
Let's start with the battery comparison. Despite having the same capacity and cells, there is a significant difference in size between the two batteries. The newer 2023 model of the iTECH120X is smaller and more compact, making it easier to fit into standard battery banks. This is great news for people looking to convert their old camper trailers from AGM to lithium batteries. The iTECH120X batteries are compatible with standard non-lithium DC to DC chargers, and they can reach around 95-96% full charge. Even if you discharge them to 10%, they will still last much longer than AGM batteries, potentially up to 10 years.
Now let's talk about the weight comparison. The AGM battery weighs 30.9 kilos, while the lithium battery of iTECH120X only weighs 10.2 kilos. This stark difference in weight becomes apparent when you see them side by side. Two AGM batteries would weigh nearly 61 kilos, whereas two iTECH120X batteries would still be lighter than a single AGM battery. The weight reduction is a significant advantage for those looking to reduce the overall weight of their setup.
Installing the iTECH120X
Now let's discuss the installation process. The iTECH120X battery fits perfectly into the designated space, and there is even some extra room to spare. By using foam padding, the battery can be securely installed without any movement during transport. It's important to ensure stability and prevent any cabling issues that may arise from vibrations. The battery terminals are protected to avoid any potential short circuits.
Once the batteries are installed, they can be calibrated to display the correct battery percentage. With two iTECH120X batteries, the total capacity reaches 210 amp hours, allowing you to maximise the current supported by your system.
To wrap it up, the iTechworld battery upgrade offers a hassle-free installation process without the need for modifications. If you're in the market for reliable batteries, consider the iTECH120X model.
Whether you have an AC charger or a standard DC to DC charger, these batteries will work seamlessly. So double up your storage, enhance your camping experience, and enjoy the benefits of iTechworld batteries. Happy camping!
