The Safari UT 700 lithium battery is like the Safari UT1300 with many of the same great benefits over lead acid, it's just has a smaller amount of energy storage and a 10 year warranty. It's a great option for replacing old lead acid batteries used for auxiliary power.

Weighs Less
At only 17 lbs., the Safari UT 700 has more stored energy and is about 1/2 the weight of traditional batteries.

Made from Lithium Iron Phosphate, it's the safest lithium battery on the market. You can use it indoors or outdoors.

Last Longer
The Safari UT 700 has long lasting life cycles at 3,500+ using full depth of discharge (DOD). It can hold a charge for up to 2 year.

Renewable Solar Batteries
Use the power of the sun to fully recharge the Safari UT 700 in just a few hours. That way you can use it over and over again without hurting the environment.

Camp 2X As Long
The Safari UT 700 provides 56Ah. You'll be able to go camping 2X longer on a single charge than you can with a lead acid battery.

Expandable for More Power
One Safari UT 700 battery has 56Ah. If you need more, you can connect them in parallel (more Ah) or in series (more volts).

Zero Maintenance
No water or acid. No trickle charging. No mess. The Safari UT 700 just works, day in and day out.

10 Year Warranty
Using Lithium Iron Phosphate technology it can be drained and recharge over 3,500 times. That's years longer than lead acid batteries. And that's why it's backed by a 10 warranty.

Environmentally Friendly
Produces zero emissions or carbon footprint during use, no greenhouse gases, and does not damage the environment. It's good for you and the planet.


Our Safari UT battery series comes with our own proprietary BMS that will protect your battery from harm. It's like having a personal body guard for the battery.

The Safari UT series all have an internal Battery Managment System (BMS) that acts as a safety net to shut down the battery if its out of parameters. This prevents the battery from overcharging or discharging as well as operating outside of the appropriate temperature range.


Life On Your Terms

This very well could be the last battery you ever have to buy. Easily replace traditional lead acid batteries to power your motor home, RV, overlander, bus, tiny home, houseboat, trolling motor, and more.

We have created a step by step walk through on how to use the the Safari UT for either:

  • Camping / RV Use
  • Marine / Water Use

Be Prepared To Power Anything

In addition to powering all your toys, you can also use your Safari Lithium Iron Phosphate Batteries to be prepared for any emergency.

The Lion Energy DIY Solar Kit lets you harness the power of the sun, store the energy in your Safari UT 700 batteries, and convert it to power for your devices, tools, lights, and many other power needs. Use the DIY Kit for your shed, cabin, gazebo, campsite, or outdoor adventure.


  • The Safari UT 700 is the lightest Lithium Iron Phosphate battery in its class by more than 25% compared to lead acid batteries. This makes a HUGE difference when you're looking at the overall weight capacity for your RV, Trailer, or outdoor rig.
  • Because we use prismatic cells vs cylindrical cells, we can pack more power in a smaller unit.
  • The Safari UT 700 has a 10-year warranty.
  • When you look at a price-per-watt basis, the Safari UT 700 gives you the most bang for your buck.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the Safari UT 700?

    The Safari UT 700 is the latest in Lithium battery technology. It replaces traditional deep-cycle lead acid batteries with the safest Lithium Iron Phosphate. It is a "plug and plays" replacement for the deep cycle lead acid battery from your RV or boat. The Safari UT 700 is a superior-performing battery giving you a lightweight, long-lasting, strong-performing, amazing battery solution.

    What does the Safari UT 700 power?

    The Safari UT 700 is an amazing Lithium Iron Phosphate battery that can be used for auxiliary power in RV's Trailers, Motorhomes, Boats, Cabins, Sheds, Gazebos, and where you need a reliable source of stored energy. It replaces lead acid batteries and provides twice the energy because all of its energy (amp hours) can be used instead of only ~50% like lead acid batteries. For example, use it in an RV to power slide-outs, lights, microwave, TV, and AC, and get twice the camping time than a lead acid battery. Want to use it to power a trolling motor? No problem, and you'll get not only a longer use time, but it also weighs less than half a lead acid battery and that's a big deal in a boat. How about using it to store energy in a cabin so you can power lights, TV, and more? Yes, you can use it for that too. It can be used 100% and then recharge over 3,500 times and still have 80% of its capacity left. (Note The Safari UT 700 is not a battery to use for starting vehicles.)

    How long does the Safari UT 700 last?

    The life of the Safari UT 700 Lithium battery is about 14 times that of deep-cycle lead acid batteries and it comes with a 10-year warranty.

    How long can the Safari UT 700 hold a charge?

    It will maintain its charge for up to 2 years without having to charge it. This is known as shelf life or storage life. However, we recommend using it more frequently.

    Can it store solar power?

    The Safari UT 700 is a great energy storage unit for solar power from panels on homes, cabins, businesses, and RVs.

    Do I have to maintain it?

    The Safari UT 700 is virtually maintenance-free, meaning you don't have to use it or even trickle charge it every 3-4 months, deal with messy acid or water since it doesn't have any, or remove it from your vehicle and store it for the next season. It can hold its charge for up to 2 years and can be recharged again and again for years of use.

    Is it good in bad weather?

    The Safari UT 700 performs better than lead acid batteries in most weather conditions. It can charge between temps of 32 to 113°F and can discharge between -4 to 131°F at a 100% rate. Outside these ranges, it can discharge at a lower rate but we recommend staying within the above parameters.

    How big is it?

    The Safari UT 700 weighs in at just 17 pounds and is the same 24 Group as other batteries, The dimensions are 10.2" L x 6.6" W x 8.8"

    What's the rated capacity?

    The Safari UT 700 is commonly referred to as a 12V, 56Ah (How much energy is stored in it), 716 Wh. Its nominal voltage is actually 12.8V.

    Can you use it in series or parallel?

    Yes. You can increase the voltage from 12V on the Safari UT 700 up to 48V total by connecting them in series (4 batteries connected together via + to - posts). You can increase the Amp Hours (Ah) up to 56Ah, 112Ah, 168Ah, and 244Ah if they are in connected in parallel (+ to + and - to -).

    What are the battery charging parameters?

    We recommend setting all voltage to a max of 14.6 for each Safari UT or at least close to it. End amps or tail amps need to be set as low as possible and the inverter's low voltage needs to be set to 11.5V. Victron inverters charger and charge controllers should be set to 13.9V for a 12V inverter and 27.8 for 24V inverters.

    What is a BMS?

    The Safari UT 700 already has an internal Battery Management System (BMS) that acts as a safety net to shut down the battery if it is out of parameters. This prevents the battery from overcharging or discharging as well as operating outside of the temperature range.

    Can I use my standard charger?

    Yes! You could use a standard battery charger and it will charge the batteries. However, since most chargers are designed for a lead acid battery, they are made to charge up to a certain voltage. On a lead acid battery, their "full" is about 13.8V. The Safari UT 700 can accept a charge of up to 14.6V. Most chargers would get the batteries to 13.8V. For best performance, we recommend a good lithium charger.

    Can I use a heating element to keep my Lithium batteries above freezing?

    If you want to use some type of heating element to keep the battery above freezing, you may want to do an online search or check out sites like
