Forster Thermo Control
Sealed lithium iron sulfate battery (LiFePO4) | Power Prismatic Cells (BPC) | absolutely maintenance-free

Forster Thermo ControlDurable performance in cold conditions


With charge absorption down to -30 °C and low self-discharge, ideally suited for non-heated areas such as an exterior battery compartment in a motor home or intermediate storage for solar or wind generators.
Our recommendation when cold plays an important role in the application.

Features

  • Particularly insensitive to cold

    With the special multi-layer heat system, this battery can be warmed up gently and efficiently. It can also be charged at -30 °C and discharged down to -20 °C.
    Your advantage: This battery can be operated well in non-heated, outdoor areas.

  • Very long service life

    Unlike lead-acid batteries, which sulfate at low charge, the LiFePO4 battery is resistant to deep discharge. It can withstand far more charge cycles to a significantly lower depth.
    Your advantage: You get a particularly long-lasting battery.

  • 100% usable capacity and expandable

    Unlike lead-acid batteries, the entire energy of this extremely compact LiFePO4 can be used. In addition, up to four batteries of the same type can be connected in parallel.
    Your advantage: Significantly increased capacity in a small space.

  • Advanced cold resistance for charging down to -30°C.
  • Efficient heating for charging with Multi-Layer-Heat System (MLS) for gentle and power-saving heating from the inside to the outside.
  • High heat tolerance for safe supply even at ambient temperatures up to 60°C.
  • Weight and space savings of up to 60 % compared to a conventional battery of the same capacity.
  • Low self-discharge. Loses only 2 to 3 % charge per month.
  • Flexible installation position. Can be installed upright, lying down, upside down and in any other position.
  • Resistant to low charge. No sulfation. High performance throughout the discharge period.
  • Extremely long life expectancy with full capacity utilization. Up to 4,000 cycles at 80% depth of discharge (= 80% DOD).
  • Capacity expandable by parallel connection of up to 4 batteries of the same type.
  • Monitoring via integrated Bluetooth Free Smart Connect app for Android and iOS.
  • Fully charged in 60 minutes. Accepts enormously high charging currents in the shortest possible time.
  • Ready for installation and immediate use.
  • Absolutely maintenance-free.

Battery knowledge

Care should be taken when handling batteries
Chemical processes take place in batteries. They are influenced by external circumstances such as temperature or humidity. That is why it is worth taking care. During use, storage, installation and transport. For your own protection and for the protection …
Lithium supply batteries
The capacity and performance of lithium iron phosphate batteries are very high compared to other batteries of the same box size. They have an extremely long life expectancy, low self-discharge and can tolerate the highest charging currents. To fully charge …
Why are the labels coming off my battery?
Detached labels indicate wear due to excessive temperatures. Tip: Always give your battery time to cool down before charging or use a charger that charges temperature compensated. Tip: If you operate your vehicle or device in a very hot environment, choose …
What is short circuit and how do I prevent it?
Short-circuiting occurs when the two terminals or plates of a battery are accidentally connected together. This can happen if the separator between the plates is damaged by vibration, for example, or if excessive battery sludge builds up, closing the …
Recognising and classifying battery damage
When the battery fails, it's annoying. Sometimes it's because of a faulty battery, sometimes it's because of the way you handle it. And only cause research and precaution helps permanently. What is wrong with the battery can often be seen from the outside. …
Always select a battery that matches the charging behavior
Starter batteries, including motorcycle batteries, are charged by the alternator while driving. The charge takes place over a longer period of time with low current. Starter batteries are designed for this charging behaviour. Some starter batteries …
What does pole growth on the battery mean?
Whitish-grey deposits on the poles, so-called "pole growth", is caused by strong sulphation on the plates. Tip: Always ensure a good state of charge.
When liquid is lost

What do discoloured plugs mean?
A brown-reddish discoloration of the plugs indicates an overcharging of the battery and a fault in the charging system. Tip: Your workshop can check whether your charge controller is working properly. Tip: Check the function and characteristics of your …
First the format, then the capacity
A battery must of course fit in your vehicle, machine or device. Check the dimensions of your old battery or the available space where you want to install the battery. Check that the terminals are easily accessible, that you can reach them easily with …

What is a Supply Battery?

Supply batteries must provide power for as long as possible for consumers that are not connected to the regular power grid or the starter battery. Either in mobile applications, e.g. camping or in island installations such as mountain huts, or in safety applications when the normal power grid fails or to compensate for so-called mains wipers. Depending on the application, they are charged with a charger from the mains or via smaller photovoltaic or wind power systems.

So not only do they have to supply power for a long time and then take it up again well, but they also have to cope well with changing current levels and voltages.

Supply batteries are cyclic batteries, i.e. they are designed to continuously deliver current up to a maximum depth of discharge of 80% when supplying electrical consumers and then to be fully recharged again. In contrast, a starter battery delivers a short, strong current surge for starting the engine and is recharged by the alternator while driving.
