For the most part, deep cycle batteries are similar across their different capacities and the power they can output. Their useful add-on features can set deep cycles apart; in this case, I’m talking about Bluetooth compatibility with an app. Yes, many products use Bluetooth that probably don’t need it, but a deep cycle battery to have an app that shows various real-time specifications is incredible.

In this review, I’m looking at this PowerUrus 12V 100A LiFePO4 deep-cycle battery that uses Bluetooth. Most LiFePO4 deep cycle batteries don’t use an app that shows what’s happening with the battery and is left blind in regards to what’s going on with a battery. With my time testing out this PowerUrus Bluetooth battery, I can say that having a Bluetooth-compatible one is incredible and something that most batteries should have available.

What’s in the Box

What you’re getting with this PowerUrus battery is the battery itself and the manual. The post bolts were already screwed onto the Negative and Positive terminals of the battery. It would have been nice to have more paperwork, insulation caps, and another pair of post bolts like some other batteries tend to come with; however, this one lacks those things. Of course, this isn’t a deal breaker, as this battery still performed very well with testing.

Power Capacity

Since this is a 12.8V 100Ah battery, you have to multiply the two numbers and what you end with is a 1280 Watt Hour (Wh) capacity for this PowerUrus battery. Any other 12.8V 100Ah batteries have the same capacity, no surprises there. That said, 1280Wh with a LiFePO4 battery is great because when you consider an equivalent power station with the same capacity and one that uses LiFePO4 batteries, then the price of that power station would skyrocket.

Although this PowerUrus battery is a bit pricier than other similar 100Ah batteries (likely because of Bluetooth integration), the cost is still considerably lower than a 1280Wh LiFePO4 power station. With a 1280Wh capacity, you can get tons of runtime depending on what you’re running. In this case, I’m talking about using this battery with an inverter to power appliances. With a 1280Wh capacity, you can run a 1280W appliance for 1 hour or a 1W appliance for 1,280 hours.

In my test, I powered a Lasko heater at its high setting, using about 1400W, very much over the 1280W max output of this PowerUrus battery, and I still managed to run the heater for nearly an hour.

Battery Capacity Efficiency

Also, if you’re concerned about the battery capacity efficiency, I did a load test. I had the load tester set to about 12.7V and 10 Amps and ran the load tester until the battery was fully depleted of its capacity. After about 10 hours, the load tester turned off and what I ended up with was a 99Ah reading, which is a 99% efficiency on the Amp Hour side, which is very good.

Also, I got a 1249Wh reading for the Watt Hour side; that’s a 98% efficiency rating as this battery has a 1280Wh capacity. This is pretty good. However, other 100Ah batteries I’ve done capacity testing for have scored a bit better. Still, honestly, it could have been the test that I ran just had a bit of an error as I’m just really only missing a single percentage till full efficiency.

Overall, this PowerUrus 100Ah battery has the capacity it states, and you would be spending your money wisely if you were to purchase it.

Also, the LiFePO4 batteries that are used make it worth even more to get a battery like this, as LiFePO4 batteries can get many more charge cycles than Lithium-Ion batteries. Just how much? They can last from 4,000 to 8,000 charge cycles. You’re looking at many years of usage.

Output Power

Since this PowerUrus battery has a 1280Wh capacity, it also has a 1280W max continuous power output and inputs 1280W to recharge. To use this battery and pull power from it, I used a 2000W Renogy Pure Sine Wave inverter. Like my other battery reviews, using a 2000W inverter with batteries like this one is unnecessary, as a 1000W or a 1200W inverter would do just fine; make sure that it’s a Pure Sine Wave to ensure that your appliances run the way they’re supposed to.

Also, I’m using a 2000W inverter to see how far I can push this battery.

So once I connected the inverter to the battery, I turned it on and was ready to start using it. I plugged a Lasko heater into the inverter, set it to low, which has a power output of about 850W, and had it run for about a minute to confirm that it ran normally. Then I set the heater to high, with an output of 1450W.

Since this PowerUrus battery has a max continuous power output of 1280W, I thought it would automatically shut down. However, I ran the heater at high for nearly an hour until the battery was depleted.

This is one of the best things about 100Ah batteries such as this one. You can power appliances beyond the continuous wattage output, and the battery can still supply power. Also, the temperature control with this battery must be good because it only got warm and still supplied power to run the heater.

Once the battery was at 0%, I checked the electricity monitor I had connected to check how much AC capacity I could pull from the battery. I ended up using 1030Wh of the 1280Wh capacity of this battery. So I was able to get about an 80% efficiency rating from this battery by powering an appliance at 1450W; this is a better efficiency than most power stations have.

App Features

One of the main reasons to get this PowerUrus battery is because of the compatible app that it can be connected with. The app is called RoyPow Fish; yes, strange name, but that doesn’t matter. The app integration is very neat.

All you have to do is have Bluetooth on your phone, and you can connect to this PowerUrus battery. Once connected, you can see a ton of info from the app about the battery; this info includes:

  • Battery Capacity
  • Max Voltage
  • Minimum Voltage
  • Average Voltage
  • Voltage Difference
  • Charge Cycles the battery has gone through
  • Battery Health
  • Designed Capacity
  • Actual Capacity
  • Warning
  • Battery Temperature

This is a ton of info, and it’s all incredibly useful because it tells you what your battery is up to, and best of all, it all updates in real time. When I was doing the heater test with the inverter, I saw the battery capacity draining and the battery’s temperature rising. You can’t do that with non-Bluetooth batteries.

Yes, having an app with a battery is not necessary, but it’s a tremendous quality-of-life feature that doesn’t leave you flying blind.

Recharging the Battery

Recharging this battery can be done with any 14.6V charger, and you can choose whatever Amp battery charger you want. I used a RoyPow 14.4V / 10 Amp battery charger in this case.

This gave me an input speed of about 145W to recharge the battery and went from 0% to 100%; it took about 10 hours. This is why it might be a good idea to use a high-amp battery charger for a faster recharge speed. However, higher-wattage battery chargers are more expensive.

Size and Weight

The size of this battery is the same as the other 100Ah batteries I’ve reviewed. This PowerUrus battery has a length of 13 inches, a width of 6.5 inches, and a height of 8.8 inches. The battery weighs 30 pounds. So size-wise, this battery isn’t very large, but it weighs about 5 pounds more than most other 100Ah batteries. Not too much of a big deal, just something to know.

Structure and Material

The battery’s casing is standard ABS plastic, so nothing too special; however, it has an IP65 water-resistance rating, so this battery is suitable for outside.

Technical Build

On the technical build side, this battery has all the protections you can expect from deep-cycle LiFePO4 batteries. These protections include overcharge, overcurrent, low temperature, and high-temperature protection and a whole host of other protections that ensure the battery, you, and your appliances are safe. The most surprising technical build is that this battery has a low-temperature cut-off, which few batteries feature. That may be why this battery is priced higher than other 100Ah batteries, as well as the Bluetooth feature.

The PowerUrus 100Ah LiFePO4 Bluetooth battery is pretty awesome. It has the capacity it says it has and can output power beyond its max 1280W output. Additionally, it uses LiFePO4 batteries that can last from 4,000 to 8,000 charge cycles. The app integration that lets you see a ton of info about the battery while you’re using it will make you never want a non-Bluetooth battery again. My experience with this battery was smooth sailing.
