RELION® RB100-HP LITHIUM STARTING BATTERY WINS BOATING INDUSTRY MAGAZINE’S 2023 TOP PRODUCTS AWARD
Selected by the editorial staff at Boating Industry, the Top Product Awards recognize innovative products that have been recently introduced or significantly upgraded since January 1, 2022.
Menomonee Falls, Wis. – RELiON® Battery, a global leader in the development of lithium batteries, has been awarded a 2023 Top Product Award by Boating Industry Magazine for its new RB100-HP lithium starting battery. Selected by the editorial staff at Boating Industry, the Top Product Awards recognize innovative products that have been recently introduced or significantly upgraded since January 1, 2022. Winners are featured in the May 2023 issue.
"The RB100-HP is a high-performance battery not only delivering reliable power for starting and doubling as a house battery, but it is also the first starting battery to meet all the specific requirements needed to be approved for use with select Mercury outboard engines,” said Eric Lindquist, VP and General Manager, Power Systems at Navico Group. “We are extremely proud of our team and the time and effort that went into developing this battery and we are thrilled that Boating Industry Magazine has recognized it as a Top Product of 2023.”
The new RB100-HP, a Group 31 12V, 100Ah deep cycle lithium-Ion battery built for starting and cycling of marine and RV applications, has increased peak amps for starting motors, electric start generators and other high-amp-draw devices. It also doubles as a house battery, powering peripherals, accessories and more. The new enhanced version features six terminals versus the two on standard batteries, offering users more flexibility when connecting electronics to the battery.
The battery includes an IP67 ingress protection rating, which completely repels dust and resists water ingress for up to 30 minutes submerged at 1 meter. Other improvements include an atmospheric vent added to the top of the case that equalizes pressure while preventing contaminants from entering the battery; glue channel to ensure IP67 seal; screw latched closure to ensure seal longevity; and tied rope with handle guides that replace ultrasonically welded straps to improve durability.
One of the most exciting benefits of the new RB100-HP Battery is that it is the first starting battery to be evaluated and approved that meets all the requirements for use with approved Mercury outboards. The models approved for use with the RB100-HP include:
- 2.1L 75‑115hp FourStroke, Pro XS® and SeaPro™
- 3.0L 150hp FourStroke, Pro XS and SeaPro
- 4.6L V8 and 3.4L V6 175‑300hp FourStroke, Pro XS, SeaPro and Verado®
- 2.6L L6 200‑400hp Pro and Verado
- 7.6L V12 500‑600hp SeaPro and Verado
- 5.7L 350 and 400hp Verado
