Bring your Vanagon into the modern day with a 50Ah GoWesty Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePo4) battery.
This totally sealed, maintenance free battery weighs about 1/3 less than a comparable 50Ah lead acid battery, has a much longer life cycle, includes an integrated battery management system featuring automatic low voltage cutoff, and includes a 5 year warranty! While this battery is categorized as a 50Ah battery, it is important to note that the usable capacity will be about 1.5x that of a 50Ah rated Lead Acid battery. Generally, the rule is that about 50-70% of Lead Acid capacity can be accessed compared with 80-100% of LiFePo capacity.
Additionally, LiFePo batteries charge faster and more efficiently! These batteries can be combined for a larger powerbank or installed individually right under your driver's seat! If you're still not sold, we recommend reading this brilliant article
