Extreme power delivery
5 YEAR WARRANTY
THE ADVANCED ENERGY STORAGE FOR ANY SIZE OF MARINE PROPULSION
For 7 years, the SMART LITHIUM series has dominated the market as the ultimate advanced lithium battery. This season, we’re introducing exciting upgrades, including an 8% capacity increase across all models and cutting-edge hardware updates for the largest in the DRIVE family. Experience the pinnacle of power storage for electric propulsion. The remarkably sturdy platform continues to elevate user experience with consistent software updates, enhancing its outstanding performance – always free of charge.
The SMART LITHIUM DRIVE model range is designed to cater to all energy storage needs for your electric propulsion systems, from small electric trolling motors and demanding bow-mounted motors to large yachts with electric engines.
Though it stores power like any other battery, the SMART LITHIUM is much more than a mere power source. Its advanced electronics allow it to be a simple drop-in replacement for low-tech domestic batteries, while simultaneously offering all the control parameters found in the Battery Management Systems (BMS) of other advanced batteries today. DRIVE batteries are sophisticated enough to serve as domestic batteries in yachts and RVs without requiring special care or electrical system updates, showcasing their exceptional quality. However, for a seamless upgrade experience, we highly recommend the Plug & Play series. Specifically designed for domestic battery use, these batteries boast universal compatibility and gentle handling of alternators under heavy loads, ensuring reliable performance for domestic battery upgrades.

Long Cycle Life and Durability
Tab-less Cylindrical Cells and Advantages over Prismatic Cells: The new DRIVE 10kWh battery utilize advanced tab-less cylindrical cells, offering exceptional performance and reliability. This design, which eliminates the need for welding or soldering, reduces resistance and potential connection issues. By adopting tab-less 3270 cells, SUNBEAMsystem stays ahead in the industry, similar to Tesla’s transition from 2170 cells to the newer 4680 cells. Furthermore, cylindrical cells provide advantages over prismatic cells, such as better heat dissipation, increased mechanical stability, and a more robust structure. These benefits contribute to the superior performance and longevity of the DRIVE batteries.
MULTI CONNECT APP – DRIVE FEATURES
Easy Charge Reboot
A standout feature of SUNBEAMsystem’s DRIVE Lithium batteries is the Easy Charge Reboot function. This innovative feature tackles the common issue of lithium batteries becoming inaccessible when too deeply discharged, making it difficult for chargers to recognize and initiate the charging sequence. With the Easy Charge Reboot function, users can simply initiate the safe reboot process through the app, enabling the battery to accept a charge from conventional chargers without the need for specialized equipment or intervention. This smart recovery feature eliminates the anxiety associated with completely draining the battery.
Another unique function of the DRIVE Lithium batteries is the Winter Mode. In Winter Mode, users can continue to utilize the battery normally even when other batteries shut down, preventing regular usage. The Winter Mode can be easily activated and deactivated through the SUNBEAMsystem Multi Connect app, offering a convenient solution for maintaining battery accessibility in colder conditions.
