RVIA announces lithium-ion battery webinar

Join RVIA on July 25 at 2 p.m. EST for a webinar on “Drop In” lithium-ion battery installations presented by industry experts and RVIA members Denis Phares and Sean Nichols, co-founders of Dragonfly Energy.

This webinar is tailored to dealers and those designing or installing lithium batteries in place of lead-cell batteries in towable RVs. The educational training is free but space is limited.

Lithium-ion batteries are a newer form of energy storage beginning to take a more mainstream position in the energy storage role over traditional lead acid batteries in the RV industry.There are significant differences between traditional technology and new lithium-ion technology that should be understood before replacing lead acid batteries.

While lithium-ion batteries serve as an electrical low-voltage source, that is about the limit of similarities between lithium-ion and lead acid batteries.

Please join the webinar on July 25 to discover what makes lithium-ion and lead acid batteries different and why you, as an engineer, dealer or OEM, need to understand these differences to ensure safety and overall performance.

The webinar will focus on:

  •  The major types of lithium-ion batteries, their uses, strengths and weaknesses
  • Safety fundamentals regarding battery management systems (BMS)
  • Examination of common failure modes and controls
  • Standard questions to consider when designing a lithium-ion system
  • Description of the most common type of lithium batteries for drop-in applications
  • Understanding battery discharge performance

Phares and Nichols, co-founders of Dragonfly Energy, have been working on mobile and off-grid power projects for more than 10 years with a focus on RV OEM aftermarket channels for the last five years. Phares is an industry expert in lithium-ion battery science. Nichols has an extensive background and knowledge in LiFePO4 batteries, inverters, converters and related components. Dragonfly Energy is a technology company that is focused on reducing the cost of manufacturing lithium-ion batteries, its team is focused on displacing deep cycle lead acid batteries around the globe for 12-, 24- and 48 volt applications.
