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.

  • 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

Our absolutely maintenance-free motorcycle batteries
intAct Bike-Power AGM, intAct Bike-Power SLA, intAct Bike-Power GEL, intAct Bike-Power HVT and intAct Bike-Power GEL HVT-HD are valve regulated lead-acid batteries or VRLA batteries (VRLA=Valve Regulated Lead-Acid). VRLA batteries produce much less gas …
Cleanliness pays off
To ensure proper battery function, it makes sense to keep the battery surface clean and dry. Greasy or silicone-containing dirt on the lid can hinder the flow of current. Moisture on the battery can cause a short circuit in the worst case.
What does absolutely maintenance-free mean?
Absolutely maintenance-free batteries are valve-regulated lead-acid batteries or VRLA batteries (VRLA = Valve Regulated Lead-Acid) that are sealed at the factory. Here, significantly less gas is produced than in wet batteries. The gas produced remains …
Chargers for rescue and safety vehicles
Emergency and rescue vehicles and other safety-related types of vehicles often sit around for months, but when it comes down to it, they need to be ready at a moment's notice to put out fires, rescue injured people or clear roads. Chargers like the Fronius …
Causal research for better purchasing decisions
Batteries age and fail. Sometimes it happens faster than you planned. If you know the cause of premature aging, you have a chance to make a more appropriate choice now: A battery that fits your technical requirements, intended use, and individual habits …
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 …
Check battery externally before charging
If the battery box is damaged or deformed, replace the battery. Clean dirty terminals with a wire brush. Remove oils, fluids or other deposits. For batteries with plugs, check fluid level and refill to MAX with distilled water if necessary.
Identifying and filling the liquid level
Markings on the outside of the white or transparent housing of a wet battery indicate the minimum (MIN) and maximum (MAX) fill levels. During commissioning or initial filling, the battery must be filled with battery acid up to the upper mark (MAX). During …
Always choose a battery that matches the load
Depending on the type of battery, it is designed for certain loads: Starter batteries must deliver as much current as possible during the starting process. The cold start current, measured in CCA, is informative here and shows how much starting power …
Round cell supply batteries
Similar to the tank cell, the surface area is increased by "winding" the grids, resulting in a larger amount of active mass. The box size is relatively compact, so you get the benefits of a utility battery in a small space, along with good starting …

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.
