Imperial Outdoors chose Expion360 to be the exclusive supplier of lithium-ion batteries for the company’s new extreme overland RV campers.
Expion360’s 360-amp-hour e360 batteries provide storage for roof-mounted solar power systems on Imperial Outdoors’ XploreRV X145 and X195 camper models.
The campers feature the same heavy-duty construction and insulation that keep ice-fisherman warm in minus-40 degree Fahrenheit temperatures, Imperial Outdoors said. The chassis rolls on large, off-road tires with more than 20 inches of ground clearance.
Expion360 began shipping lithium batteries to Imperial Outdoors for installation, with the extreme overland RV campers now available for purchase through Imperial Outdoors dealerships nationwide.
“We have always taken great pride in equipping our RV campers with the best quality components available on the market, and e360 batteries have been no exception,” said Deanna Nelson, Imperial Outdoor co-principal. “They can withstand the toughest backroads use, yet in the most energy-dense, compact form factor that is key for practical offroad camper use, such as for powering air conditioning systems while off-grid.”
RVers can use the batteries to power a built-in DC air conditioning unit requiring 2,000 watts of power.
“Imperial Outdoors’ top-quality, all-weather, all-terrain RV campers demand the most rugged and reliable onboard power systems available today,” Expion360 CEO John Yozamp said, “so we build our batteries with high quality components and expert assembly to meet this challenge.”
The e360 batteries can have a lifespan of 12 years, or three to four times that of most lead-acid batteries, Expion360 said.
“In addition to providing superior performance in harsh environments, our exclusive Li-ion battery supply agreement with Imperial Outdoors also reflects the exceptional engineering support we provide our OEM partners,” Yozamp said. “We believe our technology innovation and integration, matched with our hands-on customer education and training, sets us apart from other Li-ion battery suppliers in the country. We see this as a winning combination.”
