On-board electrics are apparently also easy, at least compact. The Lithium-Power-System (LPS) from the manufacturer Clayton contains a 90-ampere-hour battery, inverter and charger (1.5 kW), charging booster (45 A), battery manager, main switch including 230-volt distribution. The battery uses lithium-iron technology, which, unlike lithium-cobalt types, is fireproof. The box weighs 28 kilograms. The price of 2678 euros corresponds roughly to the sum of the comparable individual parts of a conventional system.
All components shown in the blue box are housed in the LPS
The big advantage is the simple installation, there is no need for complex cabling. The box is connected to the engine and starter battery, there is no need to intervene on the alternator. Is the LPS (sales in Germany by Waterloft) the solution for an electrical refit or a good replacement for existing components?
