The lithium power system from Clayton Power weighs just 28 kilograms. And this despite the fact that, in addition to a lithium iron phosphate battery with a capacity of 100 ampere hours, it also contains the necessary charging technology for 12 and 230 volts as well as an inverter with 1500 watts of power. In other words, the small box can replace a full-blown electrical system.
The wiring with the on-board network is done via a plug on the back
For installation, the system is simply connected in parallel to the engine battery. The integrated electronics control charging automatically. An external control unit is available as an option, and the capacity can be modularly expanded in steps of 100 ampere-hours.
With a weight of 28 kilograms, the Powerpack is comparatively handy
The lithium power system can be an interesting alternative, especially on yachts up to twelve meters. It is extremely easy to install and, in the event of a defect, can be replaced just as quickly or taken to the workshop for troubleshooting. It costs 2675 euros. Additional battery modules will soon be available and cost around 1,300 euros per 100 ampere-hours.
