Dometic's decision to use Lithium Iron Phosphate (known as LiFePo4) makes the battery unit lightweight, compact, and able to deliver stable power for a longer time compared to the Lithium Ion batteries currently available on the market.
Specifically designed to power a cooler, such as a Dometic CFX for a weekend, 12V devices, and USB accessories, the battery has a 2-pin threaded connection and flat discharge curve. Its robust and rugged features make it ideal for outdoor use.
Another innovation of the PLB40 is its multiple power sources: 12 V vehicle socket, solar panel or AC power. This allows users to charge the battery while driving– saving time and the need for an extra battery.
The Dometic PLB40 allows adventurers to travel further and stay longer in nature with a safe and reliable power supply.
The PLB40 will be available in the US in January of 2019.
