Battery Management System
Every Astro Lithium battery has on board Battery Management System, also known as a BMS. The BMS protects the battery from the following situations:
- over-current (not allowing too much amp draw)
- short circuit
The BMS also performs the following functions.
- Balances the individual battery cells to optimize battery longevity and efficiency.
- Automatically stops battery charging in below freezing temperatures that may harm the battery cells. The BMS will automatically resume charging when the temperature reaches above 32 degrees Fahrenheit again.

The 12v 54h dual purpose lifepo4 astro battery did not work in my particular application starting and supplying a constant power source for my 2016 f70 yamaha outboard. My engine would spike volts at WOT higher than the bms would allow which would then shut down the battery to protect itself which then stalled the engine. I gave five stars due to the company's customer service. Oliver from Astro worked dilligently with me to find a solution. Unfortunately, we did not get it to work in my application, so Astro provided a full refund and return shipping. The battery operated within their stated specifications and their service was impeccable. I recommend Astro and their team for your lifepo4 battery needs. Thank you to Oliver and the whole Team at Astro.
I was hoping to get a few more hours run time on my electronics however, I’ll probably need to upgrade my AH as I’m pulling a considerable amount of amps.
I also have your 36v100ah and it’s a powerhouse for my troll motor.
Would highly recommend.
Awesome batteries and customer service!! I purchased 2 24V 54AH batteries for my Trolling Motor on my Ranger Bass Boat. They have preformed flawlessly in the time that I have been running them - and being a compeditive tournament fisherman my trolling motor batteries are super important to me. I couldn't be happier with the product!
I recently installed two of the 12v batteries in my bass boat. I couldn’t be more pleased. Their support department helped me choose the correct system and make sure everything was wired properly. They even went out of their way to make sure the batteries were performing as they should. It reduced over 120 lbs from the stern of my boat increasing overall performance of my boat. Highly recommend! Thanks again Astro Lithium!
If you have the proper charger, charging lithium batteries is no different than most other battery types. Any charger from us, or any charger with an AGM Charging profile will work perfect. Standard lead acid battery chargers will not allow you to maximize the performance of lithium batteries. Due to their lower operating voltage, a standard lead acid battery charger may only charge your Astro Lithium battery to 60% to 80% of its full potential. We strongly recommend a LiFePO4 rated charger to get the most out of your batteries.
All of our batteries are shipped FREE to the Lower 48 United States. All products ship via UPS Ground.
Yes! This battery is specifically designed and engineered to handle cranking applications. This battery has 500 Marine Cranking Amps. If you need more, check out our 12V 100Ah Dual Purpose Battery that has 900 MCA's
Mercury has approved lithium cranking batteries for the following motors:
- 75hp to 300hp Fourstroke, ProXS, SeaPro and Verado models
- 200hp to 400hp Pro and Verado Models
- 500hp to 600hp SeaPro and Verado models
Yes, our batteries are great for operating in series or parallel applications.
LFP batteries are very safe. When we hear about lithium battery fires, those are related to other Lithium-Ion battery chemistries. Our batteries are Lithium Iron Phosphate and use a different chemistry that is much more stable.
Lithium iron phosphate has excellent thermal and chemical stability. These batteries stay cool in higher temperatures. They are also incombustible when mishandled during rapid charges and discharges or when there are short circuit issues. Lithium iron phosphate does not experience thermal runaway in the same way that other lithium-ion batteries do, as the phosphate cathode will not burn or explode during overcharging or overheating as the battery remains cool.
While our voltages vary slightly, they are completely fine to work with 12 volt, 24 volt and 36 volt applications.
The variation stems from the nominal voltage of an LiFePO4 cell being 3.2 volts. When assembled in packs, the closest multiples become 12.8 volts, 25.6 volts and 38.4 volts. These voltages are well within the operating limits of 12v, 24v and 36v equipment.
