Are you still relying on old-school lead acid batteries to power your ham radio gear out in the field? If so, there's a newer and better way to power your equipment, and it's called Bioenno.
Why Bioenno Batteries?
Lightweight and Efficient: Weighing in at just 3.3 pounds, the Bioenno 12 volt 12 amp power battery (BLF 12 12A) is both lighter and more efficient than traditional lead acid batteries which can weigh around five pounds.
Durable and High Capacity: These batteries are designed to provide a maximum continuous discharge current of 20 amps and can peak up to 40 amps for two seconds before switching to protect mode. This makes them ideal for ham radio use as well as for camera systems, solar backups, and more.
Smart Design: Made up of lithium iron phosphate, these batteries offer full output current voltage until the last minute before they shut down. Each battery consists of four individual cells that provide a combined output of 12.8 volts. This precise combination ensures you get consistent power until the very end.
Internal Protection: Unlike old-school batteries, Bioenno batteries come equipped with a PCB that manages cell balancing, overcharge protection, overcurrent protection, and more. This means you can rely on them to keep your gear running without any unexpected interruptions.
Charging Made Easy
One of the standout features of Bioenno batteries is the ease and safety of charging. A key point to remember is that the magic of charging happens inside the battery. You don't need a separate charger designed specifically for lithium iron phosphate – the battery takes care of it all. When charging, the internal PCB ensures each cell is balanced and protected from overcharging.
While the battery comes with an Anderson power pole as its output, the company assures users that altering the connectors won't void the warranty. However, a word of caution: always ensure that the terminals don't short-circuit, as that could damage the battery.
For those looking to harness solar power, Bioenno offers a specially designed solar charge controller. This controller is made specifically for lithium iron phosphate batteries, ensuring they're charged efficiently and safely. While the controller does have a load output, it's recommended to run your devices directly from the battery to prevent any damage or overloading.
Gone are the days when you had to rely on bulky, inefficient, and potentially hazardous lead acid batteries. Bioenno batteries are a game-changer for those who need reliable and efficient power out in the field. Whether you're an amateur radio enthusiast or need power for other applications, Bioenno has got you covered.
