Youtubers Lil & Jake install the iTECH120X Lithium Batteries in their van to show how easy it is to switch from AGM to Lithium in your setup.
Lil & Jake Convert Their Caravan Battery Setup to iTechworld's iTECH120X Pro Lithium Batteries
Welcome back to our channel! In today's video, we will show you the easiest way to convert your existing Caravan battery setup to lithium. We are excited to partner with iTechworld, an Australian-owned and operated company that conducts all research and development for their batteries right here in Australia. They are definitely the best people in the business.
The Need for Conversion From AGM To Lithium Batteries
Over the last few weeks, we have been struggling with power, with our current lead crystal batteries providing only 11.3 volts. Therefore, we have switched to the new iTECH 120 x Pro batteries, which have a hundred percent usable power, providing 120 amp hours, and can be tested to provide up to 136 amp hours.
The Benefits of Lithium Batteries
Our current lead crystal batteries are heavy and weigh about 30 kilos. However, the new iTECH120X Pro batteries weigh only 12.5 kilos. We are now replacing our 300 amp hour lead crystal batteries with two iTECH120X Pro batteries, giving us 240 amp hours of usable power, which is a significant game changer.
Installation of the iTECH120X Pro Battery System
The installation process is simple and can be done in just 15 minutes. The iTECH120X Pro batteries are a 12.8 version, but they are drop-in replacements for AGM or lead-acid batteries. No changes are needed for your charging or solar systems.
Charging the iTECH120X Pro Batteries
We are using iTechworld's new DCDC40 amp charger with solar input. This is a smart charger that switches to solar when driving, charging the batteries using solar energy to save fuel. It can provide up to 40 amps when driving and can be used with the solar panels on the van's roof.
Converting to Lithium?
Converting to lithium batteries provides many benefits, including more usable power, less weight, and a simpler charging system. We are excited to have partnered with iTechworld and are looking forward to our new setup.
