Lithium Battery Experts - Fast Shipping Across Australia
A lithium battery is your reliable power source when you're hundreds of kilometres from the nearest town. Our Australian engineers have spent countless hours designing, developing and testing (in real-world conditions) what we think is the highest-quality lithium deep cycle battery range on the market today.
Running a 12 volt lithium deep cycle battery (or a bank of multiple batteries) will provide all your power requirements. With their ability to recharge fast with a solar panel, AC or DCDC charger, lithium deep cycle batteries can power any electrical device. Why not take advantage of free solar energy? Our batteries have a long life and are durable. They also come with a statutory 36 month warranty for peace of mind.
Why is lithium the ideal power source for caravan and camping adventures?
Watch the video of Perth couple, Sarah and Keelan Travels as they explain why they chose the iTECH120X 120ah lithium deep cycle battery (one of our highest sellers and simply the best battery for caravan, camping and 4WD off-road enthusiasts) for their life-changing caravan trip around Australia. Saving weight = saving fuel, and Keelan cuts 60kg from his GCM just by switching to lithium deep cycle batteries - the perfect battery bank for the big lap.
Did you know we now have a 100% usable capacity, IP67 waterproof 120Ah battery? View the iTECH120X PRO deep cycle lithium battery.
If you're looking for bigger capacity from one battery, check out the 200ah lithium battery or our very latest iTECH240X PRO and iTECH400X PRO IP67 waterproof 100% usable capacity 240ah lithium battery and 400ah lithium battery models.
We've also written a blog post on the best lithium battery for your caravan.
What are the main benefits of lithium deep cycle batteries?
Our 12V LiFePO4 lithium deep cycle batteries have been designed with the Australian outdoors in mind. LiFePO4 batteries are tough, damage-resistant, waterproof, and deliver 12 volts at a constant discharge rate. If you love camping, you'll be impressed by the long lasting power of these batteries.
These batteries are so stable that you won’t see a drop in power until the last amp has been delivered. These batteries deliver more power than an AGM battery. You will be safe from fumes, acid spills and they weigh approx. 1/3 of a traditional battery.
How do I recharge a 12v lithium battery?
Due to its low resistance, a lithium deep cycle battery is easily and rapidly rechargeable using solar panels, AC and DC to DC battery chargers. Safe to use even on the hottest summer day with operational temperatures up to 80C. Lithium deep cycle batteries are maintenance-free. They're so much better than lead-acid batteries that may be in your kit now.
How long does it take to charge these batteries?
You can charge lithium batteries in as little as 2-4 hours. As some of the lithium deep cycle models having a huge capacity, a complete charge can take up to 12 hours. Just recharge the batteries when they are low, and away you go. With a DC to DC charger (the perfect accompaniment), you can even charge the battery while you’re driving, without solar. Fast charging without fuss! We also stock our own range of AC to DC chargers, too.
You should also consider pairing your battery with a solar blanket to harness the power of the sun.
How many batteries do I need?
A lithium ion battery should be the heart of every power system. These batteries are so handy if you are going on long trips. You still need to recharge, but they last so much longer. We all have mobile phones, so we all need to recharge them.
When camping, consider the power needs of others who travel with you. Have you got an Engel fridge-freezer? Will you need to power a coffee machine? What about laptops and tablets? Maybe even a hair straightener? You'll be surprised how many mod-cons you or your partner wished you packed. These little luxuries can make camping so much more enjoyable for your whole family. By calculating how many amps you need, you can work out which battery and how many you need to power all your devices.
More power is always best but whichever option you select, you will love your investment with iTechworld.
What devices can a lithium battery charge?
A LiFePO4 lithium deep cycle battery can power most off-road vehicles and caravans, suitable for portable fridges, washing machines, inverters and more. These batteries are perfect for any camping trip where you're running everything but the kitchen sink, and still have power at your fingertips. Lithium deep cycle batteries are one of the safest ways to power your site. They are not as volatile as petrol, gas, or acid-filled AGM battery or lead-acid models. They're lightweight, too - weighing 60% less than standard AGM or lead batteries.
What is the difference between a lithium and an AGM or lead-acid battery?
A LiFePO4 deep cycle lithium lasts about 4 times as long as an AGM or lead-acid battery. This long lifespan is because they can cycle over 2,000 times while AGM or lead-acid is good for about 500 cycles (A cycle is the number of times a battery can discharge and then fully charge, 1 cycle). A lithium deep cycle model will store more power, you'll get more charges out of it, they are usually a drop-in replacement battery, and you can power more devices at once. That's what makes these batteries so much better than the older technology. Our lithium deep cycle range offer unrivalled performance over other batteries.
For more information, see Lithium vs AGM Battery for Caravanning and Camping.
Is a lithium car battery heavy?
A LifePO4 lithium car battery that can discharge about 100Ah will weigh around 11 - 13kg, while an AGM or lead-acid will weigh around 28Kg. Almost 1/3 the weight. A LifePO4 battery recharges faster due to its lower internal resistance and makes it a far better option for camping.
Here's a recent Google review from a happy customer glad to be rid of their old AGM batteries:
How long does the average battery last?
On average most people will see at least seven years of battery life and reliable power before a noticeable decrease in performance from iTechworld lithium deep cycle batteries.
Our LiFePO4 batteries have cell balancing that increases their lifespan. The iTechworld lithium deep cycle range has an internal battery management system (BMS) that controls the power going in and out.
How long the lithium deep cycle lasts will depend on how many, and what type, of appliances are drawing from it. Using a battery volt meter can help in knowing how much power is left before they need to be recharged. Handy if you're out camping and need enough power to make it through the night.
Can lithium batteries go under the bonnet?
In short, yes, an under bonnet lithium battery is quite common. An important note: you will be exposing it to excessive heat, and may see a decrease in battery life over a long period of time.
For under bonnet use, we strongly recommend a battery heat shield to protect the 120x and the 120X Pro models.
Our lithium batteries are fully tested under varied and harsh, Australian conditions. They are safe from decay, explosion, and overheating. The lithium deep cycle range provides reliable, longer lasting power.

Are your LiFePO4 and Lithium ion batteries safe?
A question we're constantly asked is 'are lithium batteries dangerous?'. Mobile phone lithium batteries have been known to overheat and explode. Our LiFePO4 batteries use a battery management system (BMS) and the material inside is lithium iron phosphate. They are still lithium batteries but are more evolved and modified for our harsh Australian environment.
We strongly recommend buying lithium deep cycle batteries and chargers from an established Australian company. The Western Australian Government states: "...reputable battery manufacturers have matched battery/charger combinations which include an automatic monitoring system to detect the state of charge. When nearing full charge, the charger is switched off." - read more here.
Buying a cheap lithium battery or charger from overseas is simply not worth the risk. Our prices might be higher than some of the competition, but our batteries are Australian engineered. We've invested heavily in research to produce the best 12 volt lithium deep cycle battery line-up in the country.
12 volt lithium batteries are superior to their AGM or lead-acid battery counterparts. A LiFePO4 battery (aka lithium iron phosphate battery), They are very safe and used in many indoor and outdoor applications.
Our LiFePO4 and lithium-ion battery (li-ion) range is waterproof to different levels and maintenance-free, just keep them in a damage-resistant battery box for years of worry-free service. You'll find a battery box is handier than carry straps, too.
Our LiFePO4 lithium deep cycle batteries are very safe and lightweight. They are the safest way to provide power anytime, anywhere. These batteries stay cool when charging and discharging power.
