Ask a Question

  • Q:Can I charge the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery and run a Dometic CFX fridge freezer at the same time?
    A:

    Hi there,

    Yes - the PLB40 lithium battery has been designed to be able to charge and power a CFX portable fridge freezer at the same time.

    Regards, Steve.

  • Q:Can I charge the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery from my cigarette lighter socket in my vehicle?
    A:

    Yes - the PLB40 is integrated with an 8 A smart DC-DC charger. This will allow charging via a 12 V DC socket in the vehicle.

    Regards, Steve.

  • Q:How large an inverter can I use with the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery?
    A:

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your question.

    You can use a 150W inverter with the PLB40.

    Regards, Steve.

  • Q:How many charge cycles can I get with the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery?
    A:

    Hi,

    The Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery chemistry is rated to provide up to 2,000 charge cycles at an 80% depth of discharge.

    Thanks.

  • Q:What Dometic solar panels are compatible with the PLB40 Lithium Battery?
    A:

    Hi there,

    Dometic states that the following three solar panels are compatible with the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery:

    Thanks for your question.

  • Q:How do extreme high and low temperatures affect the operation of the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery?
    A:

    Hi,

    Lithium iron phosphate batteries can operate in a wide temperature range. The safe boundary to charge the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery is from 0C to +45C, and to discharge the battery is from 10C to +55C.

    Thanks.

  • Q:Do I need a solar regulator when using a solar panel to charge the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery?
    A:

    Hi,

    The battery pack is already integrated with a smart DC-DC charger, therefore the PLB40 can be connected directly to a solar panel without the need for a regulator.

    Keep in the mind that the maximum voltage for a solar panel should not exceed 25 V DC and that the current should be limited to 8 A DC.

    Thanks.

  • Q:Can I jump start or charge my vehicle battery with the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery?
    A:

    Hi Michael,

    No. The PLB40 is not recommended for use as a jump-starting device. It can provide output to a battery source via the 12 V output though, with a max current of 15 amps.

    Regards, Steve.

  • Q:Can the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery be daisy chained to another battery?
    A:

    Hi,

    No the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery cannot be daisy chained to another battery.

  • Q:What are the top 5 features of the Dometic 150W Portable Solar Blanket Kit?
    A:

    Hi there,

    We believe the top 5 features of the Dometic 150W Portable Solar Blanket Kit are:

    1. Lightweight – typically a third of the weight of traditional glass solar panels
    2. High Quality C60 Sunpower Monocrystalline Silicon Panels – one of the highest performance & efficiency on the market
    3. Comes with PWM (Pulse Width Modulator) Solar controller, modern type controller that prevents the battery from under or over charging.
    4. Folds down compact into its own durable carry bag (310 x 310 x 72mm).
    5. Handy eyelets around the edge allowing panel to be hung off awning or car
  • Q:What amps does this solar blanket produce in ultimate conditions.
    A:

    Hi there,

    The current at max. power (Imp) will be 8.53 A.

  • Q:What’s the difference between Mono & Polycrystalline solar cells?
    A:

    There's actually not a whole lot of difference when it comes to Caravan, RV and Camping applications to be honest. They are different cell types and are more relevant for home grid tied roof top.

    You will read that poly are better in low light conditions and mono are more efficient. But for roof top caravan's the difference is negligible.

    The most important thing is to get a well-constructed roof top panel from a quality brand and get the right sizing for your application.
