51 BATTERIES mastervolt.us Easy installation The MLI series includes two integrated handles with a recess for the correct and practical installation of the cables. The battery poles are easily accessible and completely protected, so no extra isolation covers are needed. The MLS batteries make a great ‘drop-in replacement’ for a system with lead-acid batteries, because no system changes or additional components are required. Safe operation The Mastervolt MLI series is equipped with an integrated Battery Management System (BMS) and communication through MasterBus/ CAN. Even in the harshest cycling conditions this guarantees efficient and safe operation of the battery. The MLS batteries come with an integrated automatic safety switch. Safety always comes first. Superior performance Mastervolt Lithium Ion (LiFePO4) batteries have a realistic lifespan of over 2000 cycles at a depth of discharge (DOD) of 80%. This means five times more energy storage than lead acid batteries thanks to features such as extremely high efficiency, the almost complete absence of self discharge and the minimal build-up of the infamous ‘memory effect’. Suitable for large battery banks The MLI series is ideal for electric and hybrid applications, and can be connected in parallel unlimited. The built-in common-rail technology offers an easy series connection of multiple MLI Ultra batteries. Weight reduction As speed and performance are crucial aspects, a Lithium Ion (LiFePO4) battery – which takes up 70% less weight than similar lead acid batteries – offers considerable benefits. A vessel or vehicle with a capacity of 20 kWh on board, can easily save up to 500 kg and achieve a substantially better performance.
