Our mate Nath was keen on a compact, readily portable RV Lithium System to swap between RV's and run his 80L Waeco fridge. So we built him the ideal unit - The Lithium Box 100/40 Small.
By mounting an additional base plate which is secured under the fridge, The Lithium Box Small can be mounted to said plate when in the 2021 Patrol. At just the right height, The Lithium Box Small tucks securely under the fridge handle.
The Lithium Box 100/40 Small features:
100Ah RV Lithium Systems Lithium (LiFePO4) Battery with Cell Balancing and Cell Protection
Victron Smart Shunt Bluetooth Battery Meter. Read the battery meter from the convenience of your smart phone.
Displays the battery’s voltage, amps in or out, amp hours consumed, time to go until flat, and actual State of Charge (SOC) as a percentage.

Nathan bought a Victron IP65 240V, 15A Charger for at home charging or when on shore power at a caravan park with his van and beautiful wife Kim.
We also installed a nifty retractable Blue Anderson Plug so the Redarc BCDC 1240D Vehicle & Solar Charger can charge The Lithium Box Small while driving.
Whilst Nathan wanted The Lithium Box to be highly portable, if there are any 2021 Patrol Owners looking to stash some RV Lithium Systems' power in that false floor in the rear, we're keen to build it!
