The best way to charge your Lithium Batteries

In our relentless pursuit of reliability and performance, we are proud to announce we have teamed up with, Victron Energy, the market leader in providing the very best in Lithium battery chargers.  They offer multiple charging solutions for all your Lithium Battery charging needs.

We understand the importance of a dependable lithium battery charging source for your power supply and that’s why we’ve chosen to align ourselves with the unparalleled expertise of Victron Energy. Renowned for their high quality charging solutions.

Our collaboration brings you the assurance of a charging solution that adapts to every scenario. Whether you’re charging from your vehicle’s alternator, harnessing solar power from the sunshine or utilising the convenience of a mains 240V supply, We offer a range of chargers designed to excel in all environments. 


In short, no, it is not compulsory to use a dedicated lithium battery charger to charge LithiumPro batteries. While it is recommended for optimal performance, it is not essential. If your lead-acid charger operates a CCCV charge profile and charges between 14.2V and 14.6V, it will charge a LithiumPro battery. However, charging may take a bit longer and be slightly less efficient compared to using a dedicated lithium charger with a LiFePO4 charge profile.

For those who prefer to upgrade their charging system for more efficient and faster charging, we have provided a list of chargers that are compatible with our lithium batteries.


Yes, your lead-acid charger will charge your new lithium battery, but it will take longer and may not balance the cells as effectively. There are several factors to consider when charging lithium batteries. Lithium chargers are designed to fully charge and balance your lithium battery at a regulated charge voltage of 14.6V. 

Whilst LithiumPro Energy recommends using a dedicated lithium charger, as it will offer a more efficient charge for your battery and help prolong its lifespan, it is not essential.  However, there is such a code known as ‘good practice’ good design, meaning it is better to have a dedicated lithium charger as it offers extra safety protections into the design of your system. 

The charger in most motorhomes or caravans are surprisingly, very old technology and have not been updated for many years.  Many offer different charging profile settings for GEL or AGM lead-acid batteries, but very few have a dedicated Lithium LiFePO4 charging profile. Whilst an AGM profile should charge your Lithium battery to 100% over a longer period of time, it is not as efficient as a lithium charger.

More importantly, if the Battery Management System (BMS) within the battery, decides to shuts down the battery to safeguard it as it has sensed an excessive use parameter, such as over temperature, over charging, over discharging or a short circuiting etc.  Some chargers are designed to start charging unless they sense a voltage across the battery.  Whereas dedicated Lithium chargers have technology onboard to be able to restart a lithium battery in this scenario. A charger with a LiFePO4 profile should sense that the lithium battery is showing 0v and is designed to recognise the battery requires restarting prior to commencing charging. Whereas a lead acid charger will see 0v and think the battery is dead and will not be able to reset or commence charging. 

Lithium chargers are designed to charge lithium batteries with a regulated charging profile, they use a Constant Current Constant Voltage, CCCV profile. It will charge your battery faster and more efficiently than lead acid charger switched to a GEL Profile.  Charging with a regulated voltage of 14.6v and shutting the charger off at the correct voltage is essential to protecting the longevity and lifespan of your Lithium battery. Buying a lithium charger ensures you get the best protection for your investment by looking after your battery correctly.
