Better than 12V for high power & high voltage car audio! For those that need the great energy density, consistent power output, and high discharge! This fully-built can be used for many 12-16v high power applications, but special for car audio high amperage use. A 16V LiFePO4 battery is considered superior for car audio and bass-head applications due to its higher voltage potential, improved power delivery, enhanced amplifier performance, reduced current draw, voltage stability under load, compact size, and long cycle life. This battery consists of x5 powerful LEV60F high-quality Japanese cells in pre-assembled in a 5S configuration. Cells and components are all new and unused. 5-pin jumper cable sold separately > HERE.
WHY 16V IS BETTER THAN 12V FOR CAR AUDIO?
Better Voltage Potential
Car audio systems benefit from higher voltage levels as they can deliver more power to the amplifiers. A 16V LiFePO4 battery provides a higher nominal voltage compared to a standard 12V battery. This higher voltage can result in increased amplifier efficiency and more headroom for high-energy audio playback.
Better Power Delivery
Car audio systems often demand rapid bursts of power, especially for deep bass notes. The higher voltage of a 16V LiFePO4 battery allows for quicker and more efficient power delivery to the amplifiers, ensuring that they receive the necessary power to handle demanding audio signals without voltage drops that might cause distortion.
Better Amplifier Performance
Many car audio amplifiers are designed to work optimally with higher supply voltages. A 16V LiFePO4 battery can provide the amplifiers with the voltage they need to operate closer to their rated power output, resulting in better overall performance and less strain on the components.
Reduced Current Draw
Higher voltage batteries can deliver the same power with lower current draw compared to lower voltage batteries. This reduced current draw can put less strain on the battery and the vehicle's electrical system, potentially extending the lifespan of components like alternators and wiring.
Voltage Drop Compensation
In traditional lead-acid batteries, voltage can drop significantly under heavy load, leading to voltage sag and potential audio distortion. LiFePO4 batteries, including 16V variants, are known for maintaining a more stable voltage under load, which is crucial for maintaining audio quality during peak demand.
Compact Size and Weight
LiFePO4 batteries are compact and lightweight. This is advantageous for car audio installations where space is often limited, allowing for more flexible placement options.
Cycle Life and Longevity
LiFePO4 batteries are known for their long cycle life. While both 12V and 16V LiFePO4 batteries offer excellent cycle life, the 16V variant can potentially last longer due to its ability to operate more efficiently at higher voltages.

* Important Note: Individual requirements and equipment compatibility should always be considered before making a battery choice. When upgrading to a 16V LiFePO4 battery, you should ensure that your car audio system and amplifiers are compatible with the higher voltage. Some amplifiers are designed to work specifically with 12V systems, so compatibility checks are essential.
We recommend fully charging this pack as soon as you receive it. Charger not included.
NOTE: For any lithium iron phosphate batteries, state of charge cannot be determined by voltage alone, you need to count Amp Hours or Watt Hours. Typical behavior is for the "Resting Voltage" to be 13.2VDC a few hours after your charging session.

USE AS AN EXPANSION BATTERY:
This battery pack can serve as an expansion battery for many popular power stations. It may be possible to connect multiple batteries in series to increase the charging speed (Volts), or connect multiple in parallel to increase capacity (AmpHours) and current (Amps), see your device specs for max limits. Plz double-check your power station's PV/Solar input specifications to make sure this battery will be compatible. Use with:
- EcoFlow Delta Max 2000 (Solar Charging Input 800W Max, 11-100V, 13A). May require an XT90 connector adapter.
- EcoFlow Delta Max 1600 (Solar Charging Input 800W Max, 11-100V, 13A). May require an XT90 connector adapter.
- EcoFlow Delta Pro (Solar Charging Input 1600W Max, 11-150V, 15A Max). May require an XT90 connector adapter.
