Are lithium batteries good in cold weather?
LFP batteries are safe to use in temperatures ranging from -4 degrees Fahrenheit, up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes them practical for use in any weather conditions. Some off-grid solar, RV, and Camper Van owners live and venture into extremely cold conditions, making lithium batteries a great option for consistent, reliable power. Cold temperatures must be taken into account for any battery owner as they can be harmful to the well-being of a battery. With standard lead-acid batteries the cold can seriously degrade the health and longevity of the unit. Lithium batteries have much better performance at colder temperatures than lead-acid batteries. Typically, the more you pull from a lead-acid battery in cold temperatures the weaker it will become. LFP batteries warm up when you use them, lowering the battery’s resistance and increasing its voltage. When looking to upgrade or overcome your battery troubles, lithium is the clear winner when it comes to cold weather.
