Transporter & The Lithium Box

Steven's VW Transporter Camper was consistently running out of power in an effort to run a Waeco upright fridge, using a 100Ah AGM Battery powered ArkPak, Matson 25A Charger & EP Solar Charger.

Steven opted to go with a Lithium battery system upgrade after discussing the Pro's & Con's of AGM & Lithium, so we built and installed "THE LITHIUM BOX" 100Ah with 40A Redarc BCDC 1240D Vehicle and Solar Charger.


"THE LITHIUM BOX" is a complete portable Lithium Battery System featuring:

  • Master Battery Switch

  • An RV Lithium Systems (LiFePO4) Battery with Cell Balancing and Cell Protection

  • Automatic 100A Low Battery State of Charge or Voltage Disconnect of accessory power sockets and Automatic Reconnect once the battery has received adequate charge

  • Internal Fusing and Output Short Circuit Protection

  • 50A Anderson Plug for Vehicle Charging Input

  • 50A Anderson Plug for Solar Charging Input

  • 2 x Anderson Plug for Power Output on the front (50A max each)

  • 2 x Anderson Plug for Power Output on the rear (16A max each)

  • 1 x Twin USB Outlet (4.2A max)

  • 1 x Cig Socket (16A max)

  • 2 x Engel / Waeco / ARB / Merit Sockets - your choice!

  • Super tough 10mm High Density Polypropylene (HDPE) outer

  • Easy mounting system for securing



All our systems are made to order which means we can customise to suit our clients.

In this instance we placed all four Grey Anderson Plug Outputs on the front of "THE LITHIUM BOX" and placed two Red Solar Input Anderson Plugs on the rear for Stevens roof mounted Solar Panel and a Solar Blanket.


Along with a Blue Anderson Plug Input for vehicle charging, we placed an extra 50A Grey Anderson Plug Output on the rear for the Vans power which links in to the existing fuse box switch panel. This additional plug piggy backs off the front Grey Anderson Plug so the total combined output between the two is 50A.


Steven's system includes:

  • A 17A 240V Victron IP67 battery charger mounted to "THE LITHIUM BOX"

  • A 375 VA Victron Inverter for powering 240V appliances

AND IT ALL FITS IN THE SAME SPACE AS THE OLD ARKPAK!

PLUS...IT'S REMOVEABLE IF STEVEN CHANGES RIGS!
