Arizona is a stunning state with gorgeous scenery, plenty of sunshine, and little to no rainfall. Whether you’re living in your RV or using it to travel around, this state is an ideal location. There are plenty of RV parks, campgrounds, and other places to park and stay.
If you want to make the most out of your trip, you may want to consider switching your rig over to lithium batteries. These batteries have many advantages over lead-acid, especially in the Arizona heat. But, where should you shop for the best lithium batteries for your RV?

Patriot Power Source Lithium RV Batteries
Here at Patriot Power Source, we take pride in our country, which is why our lithium batteries are designed and engineered right here in the United States. They feature the latest cutting-edge technology - LiFePO4.
Let’s take a look at some of the things that make our batteries the best.
Our batteries are completely drop-in ready, saving you money and time on finding a shop to do the conversion for you. Installation is simple and straightforward, and you’ll get a guide that will help navigate you through the process.
Patriot Power Source offers conversion kits that come with one to four 100Ah 12V lithium batteries. Also included are a wiring kit, battery meter, and LiFePO4 charger. If you have any problems making the switch, give us a call, and we can help you through the installation.
Since every RV setup is different, our batteries are engineered to run in a series wiring setup or in parallel, depending on what you need.
Patriot Power Source’s lithium batteries weigh about a third of lead-acid batteries. Making the switch to our batteries can reduce your rig’s weight by at least 300-400 pounds! That weight loss carries many benefits for your RV.
Not only will you have an easier time sticking to your weight limit, but you’ll also reduce the strain on your brakes, tires, and suspension. Plus, a heavier rig uses more gas to carry the load, so you’ll be saving money on fuel as well.
Patriot Power Source’s batteries offer consistent performance and power at all times. Lead-acid batteries lose their voltage as their charge is depleted, making it hard to predict exactly how long they’ll last. Lithium batteries don’t suffer from this issue, so you’ll always have a clear idea of how much farther you can travel before you need to recharge.
Whether your battery is charged to 1% or 100%, our batteries will operate at full capacity, providing the power that you need.
In Arizona, winters are beautiful, and summers are hot. This makes it an ideal location for snowbirds who want to get out of the snow for a few months of the year. If you’re only using your RV part-time, lithium batteries are even more beneficial.
Leaving your RV for months at a time is a problem if you have lead-acid batteries. This is because these types of batteries lose 33% of their charge per month when they’re not in use. Combine that with the fact that you run the risk of damage if the charge level gets below 50%, and you’ve got a serious problem. If you’re out of state, you’ll need to find someone that can check on your RV and recharge your batteries at least once a month.
Patriot Power Source’s lithium batteries can easily be left for six months or more without needing any type of care. They only lose 2-3% of their charge per month, and they can be fully depleted without causing any damage. After six months away, you’ll come back to over 80% of your charge left.
While Arizona’s winters never get too cold, the summers are a problem. Extreme heat is common, with temperatures in the triple digits for over a third of the year. Fortunately, Patriot Power Source’s lithium batteries can handle the heat. You can safely use these batteries in temperatures up to 140 degrees!
While you probably won’t have to worry about it in this state, our batteries will also work in cold temperatures down to 14 degrees, and they have less capacity loss in the cold compared to other batteries.
To keep your batteries in the best condition possible, you will need to make sure that the temperature is between 32 degrees and 113 degrees when you charge them.
Battery Capacity and Lifespan
The lithium batteries that Patriot Power Source provides have 100Ah. A lead-acid battery with the same Ah can only provide 50Ah of usable power due to the fact that charge levels need to stay above 50%. When you make the switch to lithium, you’re effectively doubling your power.
On top of that, our batteries have the most extended lifespan for RV batteries that you’ll find. They have a 7,000 to 7,500 cycle life. Comparatively, other brands of lithium batteries get up to 5,000 cycles, and lead-acids typically only see up to 1,000 charge/discharge cycles.
If you’re sick of replacing your batteries every five to ten years, switching to our batteries can get you up to twenty years, depending on your rig’s setup and usage.
The LiFePO4 technology used in Patriot Power Source’s lithium batteries is inherently safe. Lithium batteries are also acid-free, so you don’t have to worry about leaks or spills.
Our batteries all feature a built-in BMS or Battery Management System that ensures your batteries are performing optimally. The safety circuits monitor for temperature changes and prevent overheating, over-charging, and under-charging, keeping your battery in top condition.
If you have lead-acid batteries, you’re probably sick of checking acid levels, adding water, and cleaning corrosion off your batteries. When you make the switch to Patriot Power Source’s lead-acid batteries, this maintenance will be a thing of the past. Our batteries don’t require any maintenance at all.
Patriot Power Source strives to provide our customers with the best battery experience, which means it’s unlikely that you’ll have any issues with your batteries. However, if you do, they’re covered under an eight-year warranty. You can check out the full terms on our website.
Patriot Power Source is a proud American company that’s family-owned and operated. Our goal is to deliver the most advanced lithium batteries on the market to our customers. When you’re ready to make the switch, give us a call or check out our website.
