FMCA RV Club Introduces New Battery Benefit For Members
Cincinnati, Ohio — FMCA, an international association for RV owners, has announced a new partnership with Briter Products, creator and contract manufacturer of Ion-Ready© lithium-iron-phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries designed specifically for RV use.
Lithium-iron-phosphate batteries have various advantages over conventional lead-acid batteries used in RVs. LiFePO4 batteries have twice the power and are about half the size and weight of lead-acid batteries; have a longer life expectancy; are fast charging; and can be mounted internally or externally in various positions, among other benefits.
Briter Products’ Ion-Ready© 12-volt batteries are designed with safety in mind. Each battery is encased in powder-coated steel to ensure durability, whether installed internally or externally. The battery’s cells are protected against vibrations or impact, and mechanical and electrical components provide stable conditions for the charging, storage, and delivery of power. Other safety features include fuse protection between each cell, charge-discharge protection, and internal heat sensing. Internal connections are robotically bolted and torqued rather than soldered. This helps them to withstand road vibrations and prevents problems and safety concerns associated with bad connections, such as short-circuiting.
Each battery incorporates an LCD status screen that either is placed on top of the battery or on the side, depending on the model, which allows for installation flexibility. A proprietary battery management system maintains internal cell balance and monitors power, temperature, and charging for enhanced performance and service.
With the new partnership, Briter Products is offering FMCA members special member-only pricing on a battery and charger bundle, reduced rates on installation, and the option to purchase an extended warranty for an additional 5 years; each battery comes with a standard 5-year warranty from the date of purchase.
