The Insight Series is the first scalable LiFePO4 drop-in replacement battery that comes in industry-standard sizes with no extra hardware needed when connected in parallel. InSight Series batteries are designed to replace lead-acid batteries in any deep cycle application, including golf carts, marine, RVs, renewable energy systems, floor machines, scissor lifts and much more.

The packs include a BMS that maximizes battery performance, even when connected in parallel, eliminating the need for an external master BMS or any additional hardware. The algorithms in the SuperSmart BMS ensures precise balancing to optimise performance in each battery when multiple batteries are connected in parallel, providing maximum capacity and life.

“The SuperSmart BMS included with the Insight Series touts everything from accurate balancing using the Bullseye Balancing technology, allowing you to scale up to the capacity you need without compromise, to charge control which allows you to use almost any charger with our batteries,” said Christine Feodorov, RELiON’s VP Product Development and Strategy. “And end users are not left in the dark with the LED indicator lights that display the battery’s status at a glance, letting you know if your battery needs a recharge.”

Unlike other lithium batteries that can trap heat, the InSight Series also features Intelligent Cooling using a carefully engineered passive heat management system to quickly remove heat from inside the battery during conditions of high discharge and recharge currents. This prevents over-heating of critical components, which also extends the life of the battery.

The InSight Series batteries come in GC2 size 12V, 24V, 36V and 48V versions, each using the inherently safe LiFePO4 chemistry. RELiON will launch additional InSight Series standard battery drop-in sizes later this year.

“Adding this unique technology to our product offering is big not only for our company, but for the battery industry as a whole. The SuperSmart BMS alone will play an integral part in the customer experience and the kind of intuitive design consumers will begin to expect from battery technology companies going forward,” said Paul Hecimovich, CEO of RELiON Battery.
