0Ah Lithium Battery. 12V, 24V, 36V, and 48V Batteries
High-capacity, ultralight, deep cycle 100Ah lithium batteries are a popular choice for many applications including off-the-grid applications, as trolling motor batteries, electric vehicles, standby and backup systems, security and medical systems, etc.
Although lithium batteries are available in various chemistries, 100Ah lithium batteries are almost exclusively offered as Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, offering good performances without sacrificing safety.
However, if not used and treated properly, even LiFePO4 batteries may become a safety hazard.

0Ah Lithium Batteries Features and Specifications
100Ah lithium batteries are mostly offered in nominal voltages of 12V, 24V, 36V, and 48V, although there are brands that offer high-capacity lithium batteries featuring nominal voltages of 60V, 72V, and even more volts.
The main advantage of electric systems with higher voltages is the fact that those systems require weaker currents to transfer the same power. Also, if the same wires are used, such systems are more energy-efficient.
For example, electric trolling motors up to 55-60 lbs of the thrust are 12V units with maximum currents up to 50-55 Amps, 60-90 lbs thrust electric trolling motors are 24V units with maximum currents of up to 50-55 Amps, 90-120 lbs thrust electric trolling motors are mostly 36V units with maximum currents of up to 50-55 Amps, and 120 lbs thrust electric motors are mostly 48V units, with maximum currents up to 50-55 Amps.
And the pattern is obvious. in order to increase power, voltage is increased from 12V to up to 48V while maintaining currents up to 50-55 Amps. And such current does require relatively thick cables to keep energy losses low, but these cables are still rather easy to work with.
In order to achieve the required capacity and voltage, some brands use smaller battery 3.2V cells (for example, 36250 or similar) connected in series and parallel, while other brands use individual 3.2V 100Ah cells connected in series.
Regardless of the internal construction and although Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) is practically the safest lithium-ion battery chemistry, ALL 100Ah lithium batteries MUST have a built-in Battery Management System (BMS) that monitors battery condition, charging/discharging voltages and currents, and protects the battery from events that may harm the battery, including high/low temperature, high/low voltage, high charging/discharging current, short circuit and similar.
Also, BMS also has another very important task. it has to balance the cells. If there are imbalances among the cells, an individual cell may fail, causing the entire battery to fail or to lower its performance.
Although lithium batteries are initially more expensive than lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries support 5-10x or even more charging/discharging cycles than lead-acid batteries and in the long run, they save both money and weight.
0Ah Lithium Battery Physical Dimensions
Depending on the battery voltage, 100Ah lithium batteries feature physical dimensions of:
Nominal and Actual Voltages
The heart of any 100Ah lithium battery is a 3.2V LiFePO4 cell.
In order to provide larger voltage, several cells are connected in series:
Similarly, larger voltages (60V, 72V, etc.) are achievable by connecting even more cells in series.
As the battery is being discharged, voltage drops, especially when the batteries are discharged using stronger currents.
But, this voltage drop is very low when compared with lead-acid batteries.
Most lithium batteries hold their actual voltage between nominal voltage and maximum voltage for almost 90-95% of their discharge curve, leading to excellent energy efficiency.

Connecting Lithium Batteries in Series and/or Parallel
Lithium batteries should be connected in series and/or parallel only if explicitly allowed by their manufacturer, and even then one should use batteries of similar age, preferably the same battery model from the same batch.
By connecting, for example, 4 (four) 12V 100Ah batteries in series, one can create a 48V 100Ah battery pack.
But, perhaps it is simpler to buy one 48V 100Ah battery and avoid having many contacts to worry about.
Connecting in series and/or parallel lithium batteries from different manufacturers should be avoided, since they all use different BMS systems and can cause charging/discharging issues, but can also lead to destroyed batteries, overheating, fire, etc.
How to Charge 100Ah Lithium Batteries
Lithium batteries should be charged using lithium battery chargers of the required voltage that charge the battery using a charging algorithm suitable for these batteries.
Most lithium battery chargers use Constant Current/Constant Voltage (CC/CV) charging algorithm, ensuring that the battery is fully charged.
Advanced lead-acid battery chargers should NOT be used for charging the lithium batteries since such chargers often have modes that may harm the lithium batteries (desulphation mode, for example). Also, the charging end voltage of such lead-acid chargers is lower than the charging end voltage of lithium battery chargers.
Lead-acid battery chargers should be used to charge the lithium batteries ONLY if they have a dedicated lithium battery charging mode, optimized for such batteries.
The maximum charging current for 100Ah lithium batteries is usually in the 0.5-1.0C range (50-100 Amps), but it is recommended to keep the charging current around 0.2-0.3C (20-30 Amps) in order to prolong the battery’s operating lifetime.
Long Story Short: 100Ah lithium batteries are very popular deep-cycle batteries being offered in different voltages including 12V, 24V, 36V, and 48V.
With discharge currents in the 0.5-1.0C range (50-100 Ah), these batteries are able to continuously provide at least 600-1200W @12V, 1200-2400W @24V, 1800-3600W @36V, and 2400-4800W @48V.
Note: this is a calculation for 12V, 24V, 36V, and 48V and NOT for 12.8V, 25.6V, 38.4V, and 51.2V. in real life, these batteries can provide slightly more power.
Because of their features, 100Ah lithium batteries are a common choice for electric trolling motor batteries, electric vehicles, RV house batteries, off-the-grid applications, and similar.

Hi, at the beginning, we had set up the low temperature cut-off function for Redodo 100Ah LiFePO4 battery, but later many customers responded that they also want to discharge it under 32°F/0°C. After careful research, our team has decided to block this function. Some of our customers who live in the cold areas who are happy to use our batteries too, because it can discharge well and their loads can work under low temperature. If they need to charge the battery below 32°F/0°C. they told us that they choose a dedicated LiFePO4 battery charger with a low-temp cut-off function, or take the batteries to the house where the temperature is higher than 32°F/0°C. We will have the LiFePO4 batteries that have low temperature protection in the near future.
Should I leave lifePO4 battery connected to charger after it has been fully charged, and will not be used for awhile？
Hi, usually, you can leave LiFePO4 battery connected to charger after it has been fully charged for a while if your battery charger has automatic power off function. Redodo LiFePO4 battery also has over-charging protection too. But for the safety reasons, we suggest that disconnect the battery with the charger once it is full charged.
I have two 12v 100ah batteries connected together. can i add one 12v 200ah battery to this, will the bms match up or do i need to add two 12v 100ah?
No, we do not suggest you to connect 12v 200ah battery to the battery system of 212V 100Ah battery. Although Redodo 12V 100Ah LiFePO4 battery and Redodo 12V 200Ah LiFePO4 battery have built-in 100A BMS, the capacities of two battery models are different. To connect in series or /and parallel, batteries should meet the below conditions: a. identical batteries with the same battery capacity (Ah) and BMS (A); b. from the same brand (as lithium battery from different brands has their special BMS); c. purchased in near time (within one month) So if you want to expand your battery system, we suggest you to add 212V 100Ah battery.
Hi, we do not recommend to connected the Redodo 12V 100Ah battery and 200Ah battery together. Here are two main reasons why we don’t suggest connecting batteries with different capacities: 1) After parallel connection of batteries with different capacities, the current of 200Ah is twice as large as that of 100Ah when charging/discharging at the same time. 2) The internal resistance of the 200Ah battery is 2-4mΩ, and that of the 100Ah battery is 7-9mΩ. When the batteries with different impedances are connected in parallel, it is possible to damage BMS after long-term use. To connect in series or/ and in parallel, batteries should meet below conditions: a: the same battery capacity(Ah) and same BMS b: from same brand(as lithium battery from different brands has their special BMS) c: purchased in near time(within one month) d: from same types of battery
Can these batteries be mounted on their side or does the orientation of the terminals always have to be upright?
Hi, we suggest that you place Redodo 12V(12.8V) 100Ah LiFePO4 battery with the terminal bolts upward. If you have more than one Redodo 100Ah LiFePO4 battery, please avoid their post bolts having direct contact when mounting them. To help you analyze and solve your question about the batteries more specifically, we welcome you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help you with an in-depth analysis according to your detailed information.
Hi, Redodo 12V 100Ah LiFePO4 battery have cells which get certificate from UL and the protection class is IP65 and the battery quality is Grade-A.
Hi, 1)We don’t suggest that to connect the Redodo 12V(12.8V) 100Ah LiFePO4 batteries with any lead-acid batteries because they are totally different: 1. The LiFePO4 batteries and the lead-acid batteries own different charge/discharge modes; 2. The voltages of the LiFePO4 batteries and the lead-acid batteries are different(even if they are written in 12V); 3. The LiFePO4 batteries are built in BMS while the lead-acid batteries are not. 2)To connect in series or/ and in parallel, batteries should meet the below conditions: a: the same battery capacity(Ah) and same BMS b: from the same brand(as lithium battery from different brands has their special BMS) c: purchased in near time(within one month) d: from same types of battery To help you analyze and solve your question about the battery connection more specifically, we welcome you to contact us on email@example.com, and we will help you with an in-depth analysis according to your detailed information.

Deep cycle Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries are a great alternative to power stations because, for the most part, they cost less in terms of the capacity you’re getting. You’ll still be spending less, even adding on the cost of an inverter and a battery charger. There are also ways to use these types of deep-cycle batteries without an inverter and have a direct connection to what you want to power.
I‘m looking at this Redodo 12V 100Ah LiFePO4 battery in this review. This comes from a well-known brand on Amazon, and their batteries are on the lower price side. I have done a full video review of this battery, but if you want to read a review article and take a look at photos, this one is for you.
What comes in the Box
What you’re getting in the box with this Redodo 12V 100Ah battery are four post bolts, two positive and negative insulated covers, a manual, and a piece of paper that gives you some info about the dos and don’t for the battery. You do not get a battery charger in the box and have to purchase that separately, and that’s not a problem in this case because, in general, batteries like this don’t come with battery chargers in the first place.
Overall, what you’re getting with this Redodo battery is standard for these batteries, and it’s not missing anything vital. Including four post bolts is a great addition; the manual contains rich information, and the paper giving vital info is a nice touch.
So to get the Watt Hour (Wh) capacity of this Redodo battery, you have to multiply 12V and 100Ah, and you end up with a 1280Wh capacity. So, yes, this Redodo battery does have a 1280Wh capacity, and that’s a lot of power; when you consider a power station with a 1280Wh capacity, you’re looking to spend about 1,000 or more, in this case, you’re spending way less. Go ahead and look at their product page for this battery to see how little you’d pay to get so much capacity.
Of course, with a power station, you get everything already put together and ready to use. Still, as I mentioned, you can choose your inverter and battery charger when you go with a battery like this, which is very low cost. Also, this is a LiFePO4 battery, which can last for about 4,000 charge cycles. LiFePO4 batteries are the way to go because you’re getting your money’s worth, as the battery will last much longer than Lead Acid batteries or regular Lithium-Ion batteries. You’re looking at many years of usage for this Redodo battery.
Also, when it comes to powering appliances for a 1280Wh capacity, you can power a 1W appliance for 1,280 hours or a 1280W appliance for 1 hour. So you have a lot more flexibility when it comes to the longevity of the capacity depending on what appliances you’re looking to power.
MakerHawk Battery Capacity Test
For the capacity test, I used a MakerHawk load test and connected the positive and negative clamps of the load test to the Redodo battery. I set the Voltage to about 12.8V and had the Amps set to about 10 Amps. I ran this test overnight to drain the capacity of this Redodo battery to 0%. After about 9 hours, I returned to the load tester turned off, and the battery was fully depleted of its capacity. What I ended up with was a 103Ah capacity and a 1,298Wh capacity. So on the Amp Hour (Ah) reading, I got a 103% efficiency rating, and on the Watt Hour (Wh) side, I got 101% efficiency. So this Redodo 100Ah battery has a 1280Wh capacity and a bit more, so you’re spending your money wisely for not only the capacity but also the many change cycles that come with a LiFePO4 type of battery.
Also, somebody mentioned in one of my battery capacity test videos that these batteries have a bit more capacity than they say they do to ensure they output the advertised capacity.
Since this battery has a 1280Wh capacity, it has a 1280W continuous power output and a 1280W max input.
For our testing of this Redodo 100Ah battery, I used a Renogy 2000W Pure Sine Wave inverter. To clarify, you don’t have to use a 2000W inverter for this Redodo battery; in fact, using this inverter is way over the top. Instead, I would recommend a 1200W inverter or lower, depending on your budget and needs; however, in this case, I wanted to push this Redodo battery as far as possible to see what it is capable of. Also, when choosing an inverter, make sure that it’s a Pure Sine Wave inverter to ensure that your appliances run the way they’re supposed to.
So for the first test, I did with this battery through the inverter powering a Lasko heater. I had an electricity monitor connected to the inverter to tell me what was happening regarding Watt Hour (Wh) pulled from the battery and the wattage output the appliance was drawing. I set the Lasko heater to low first and ended up with an 850W output; this is not a problem for the Redodo battery to handle as it’s capable of a 1280W continuous power output. After running it at low for about a minute, I set the heater to high, and the output jumped to about 1400W. With a 1400W output, the heater is over the 1280W output of this Redodo battery, but it still keeps running.
I kept running the Lasko heater for 47 minutes until the battery was completely depleted. So you can run a 1400W load from an inverter using this Redodo battery, and it can handle it for nearly an hour. Also, I got an AC capacity of 1,100Wh, which is a 86% efficiency rating when it comes to using an inverter with the battery; this type of conversion through an AC outlet is better than most power stations.
Electric Cooktop Toaster Oven Test
For the next test, I used a 1000W electric cooktop and placed a saucepan with four cups of water on top to see how fast I could boil water and how much capacity I use up. The cooktop pulled about 950W; it took about 8 minutes for the water to boil and used up 120Wh of the Redodo battery’s capacity. So you can easily cook with a high enough wattage inverter using this battery, and you won’t lose much capacity.
For the final test, I used a toaster oven to power from this battery and inverter. I set the toaster oven to 450 ° F and had to run it for about 10 minutes. The toaster oven pulled 1170W and used about 120Wh capacity from this Redodo battery. So you can easily have food toasted with this battery, too.
Overall, a 12V/100Ah battery is best to own. Going lower on the Amp Hour (Ah) scale means having lower wattage usage and less capacity to use, which ultimately means a shorter runtime. Going with a higher capacity battery means spending more, but at the same time, you get so much more capacity and wattage usage. That said, 100Ah batteries are the sweet spot for price and function.
Recharging the Battery:
You can use any 14.4V or 14.6V battery charger to recharge this Redodo 100Ah battery. In my case, I used an Ampere Time 10 Amp battery charger to recharge the unit. This is one of the lowest-cost battery chargers you can get, but it’s also one of the slowest ways to recharge. This Ampere Time 10 Amp battery charger works the same way as any other one. I just attached the negative and positive clamps to the negative and positive terminals on this Redodo battery, and it began charging.
The light on the Ampere Time battery charger turns red to indicate that it’s charging, and then it turns green to indicate that the battery is fully recharged and charging stops. Of course, as I mentioned before, a 10 Amp battery charger is relatively slow, and going from 0% to 100% will take about 10 – 12 hours.
Size and Weight:
This Redodo 100Ah battery has a length of 13 inches, a width of 6.7 inches, and a height of 8.4 inches. The battery weighs 25 pounds. So it’s not a large battery, but it has some weight. The battery does have a handle strap that makes it easier to move around, and you can also easily remove the handle if you want.
In this case, when it came to using the battery with the Renogy 2000W inverter, I connected the negative and positive terminal cables from the inverter to the battery. Once the terminal ends were screwed onto the battery, I could turn on the inverter and power the appliances.
Structure and Material:
The build quality of this Redodo battery is good. The battery has an IP65 water resistance rating, meaning it can withstand rain and high-pressure jets but cannot withstand water submersion. The casing is solid, and I couldn’t find any flaws with its build quality. However, you shouldn’t drop this battery, as I’m not sure if the casing can survive a fall, as most batteries are not exactly built up to that standard.
For the technical build, this Redodo battery has overcharge, over-discharge, temperature, short circuit, and all other protections to ensure that it performs smoothly and that you’re safe. In my heater test, when I had the heater running at about 1400W, this battery could keep supplying power to the Renogy inverter. If the battery got too hot, it would automatically shut off, but that didn’t happen in my test, as it could fully deplete its capacity.
The testing I’ve conducted from the MakerHawk load tester and the Renogy inverter shows that this Redodo 100Ah battery is very reliable. It has the capacity it says it has a little more. Also, it uses a LiFePO4 battery cell which gives many charge cycles that allow the battery to last for many years. On the inverter side, I could power a Lasko heater at 1400W, above the 1280W that this battery is capable of. The inverter AC capacity pulled 86% efficiency from this Redodo battery.
So, this is very reliable for a 100Ah LiFePO4 battery.
This 1280Wh capacity is precisely what you’re getting, and just a bit more because of the load test I ran. This battery can also handle loads over its 1280W max continuous output, as I ran a 1400W load for nearly an hour.
This battery is pretty small, but it does weigh 25 pounds. The removable handle does make it easier to carry the battery. Connecting the inverter was very easy, and recharging was simple, too.
The build quality of this Redodo battery is solid because of its IP65 water resistance rating. It also has many technical protections that ensure it will be safe, such as overload, short circuit, and temperature control protections.
If you want an all-around reliable battery, a 100Ah battery is the one to go with, as it has tons of capacity, power input, and output capabilities, and it comes at an affordable price compared to a 1280Wh power station.
This Redodo 12V 100Ah LiFePO4 battery is an excellent choice because it’s exactly what it says it is. This 1280Wh battery can supply more than 1280W of power through an inverter; of course, you shouldn’t do that frequently with a battery like this, but I was able to run 1400W for almost an hour. Also, for a 1280Wh capacity and even adding on the cost of an inverter and a battery charger, this Redodo battery can be a better choice than an equivalent power station.
