WHY WE USE
LITHIUM IRON PHOSPHATE
Lithium Iron Phosphate is the safest lithium on the market. It will not explode or catch on fire. It is absent of potentially volatile chemicals that are found in other lithium cells.
Lithium Iron Phosphate has 100% of its capacity available for use. It can be quickly charged and discharged again and again, reducing downtime and increasing efficiency. This makes it a great fit for a variety of applications.
No Active Maintenance
Because they emit no fumes or require little air flow, you can use them inside or outside. They can be stacked on top of each other or can be used in any position.
Peaks and Valleys Energy Use
For the first time, green energy can be created and effectively stored and used as needed. You can harness the power of the sun and use it over and over again.
Lightweight and Portable
Energy storage allows you to be independent of the grid so you can have energy where and when you want it. So no worries about black outs, brown outs, or when the grid goes down.
WHERE TO USE YOUR PORTABLE
|Note: Solar panels must be >36V VMP and < 60V VOC|
The Lion Safari ME is made from Lithium Iron Phosphate and is the safest solar generator on the market. Because it does not emit any toxic fumes or gases, you can use it inside your home, tent, RV or any other confined area. Lithium Iron Phosphate is the highest grade, safest battery composition available and has no potentially volatile chemistry. The ME goes through extensive testing from initial design through production and before it ever leaves Lion Energy.

Q & A
What is the Safari ME?
The Safari ME is the latest in Lithium battery technology for portable power needs. It replaces traditional noisy gas generators with the safest Lithium batteries on the market today. It is light weight for the amount of power it has. Think of it as a safe, silent, renewable generator and without the need for gas, pollution or all that weight.
What does the Safari ME power?
You can use it to power a wide variety of devices like cell phones, laptops, tablets refrigerators, freezers, TVs, lights, hot plates or grills, power tools, and the list goes on. Virtually any device you can plug into a standard wall outlet, the Safari ME can power it.
How can you figure out how long the Safari ME will power specific devices?
The ME has a continuous 2,000W of power output (watts of power output) and over 900Wh (922 watt hours) of stored energy. That means you can power devices that require up to 2,000W of power for various periods of time. To calculate how long the ME can power a device, use this formula: Wh / W = Estimated Run Time. For example, if the device requires 50W of power and the ME has 922Wh then the device can be powered for approximately 18.5 hours (922 / 50 = 18.44)
How long can the Safari ME hold a charge?
It will maintain its charge for up to a year without having to charge it. This is known as shelf life or storage life. Each month is will lose a little bit of the charge, more in the first month and less each month thereafter. Over a year it will average about 2-3% a month. Just plug it in and recharge it anytime. We recommend using frequently – in the house, outside, on adventures and ready for emergencies.
Can the Safari ME power an A/C unit?
The Safari ME can power some AC units depending upon the brand and the watts each AC unit requires. Like with most devices, the power consumption varies from brand to brand and model to model. The ME can output 2,000W continuously. Check out our videos tab for a detailed review on the ME.
How can I connect the Safari ME to my house?
You would need a home integration kit, which is generally found at home improvement/electrical supply/hardware stores.
Can the Safari ME be used to store solar power or solar energy?
The Safari ME is a great energy storage unit for solar power from solar panels. It can store 922Wh (watt hrs) of energy.
Why should I buy the Safari ME?
The Safari ME is made from the highest quality and longest lasting battery technology – Lithium Iron Phosphate. The Safari ME is safe, silent and renewable, unlike gas-powered generators. The ME gives your power anywhere, anytime.
Will the Safari ME work with power tools?
Yes, most power tools will work just fine with the ME. Some require more energy at startup (a surge) and may need to have a "soft start" component added to the ME that can be found at home improvement, electric supply, or hardware stores.
What are the top benefits of the Safari ME?
There is a lot to love about the Safari ME:
Renewable Solar Generator
You can use the power of the sun to fully recharge the ME in as little as 95 mins so you can use power without running out of power.
If you care about the environment, the ME produces zero emissions and has no carbon footprint during use.
Faster Charge Time
If you prefer to recharge it from a wall outlet, it only takes just over 80 mins to recharge... completely from empty to full!
Expandable for More Energy
If you need more stored energy, you can expand the ME capacity by adding the optional expansion pack called the Safari ME-XP and that gives you 3x the stored energy as the ME alone. That means you can use it 3x longer on a single charge with the ME and the XP combined.
Power Almost Anything
Because it has so much power and multiple output types such as AC, USB or 12V, virtually anything you can plug into a standard wall outlet, the Safari ME can power. It has an initial 4000W Surge for that extra power you may need.
Power Pass Through
It has a pass through power mode, meaning you can charge it while using it and once it’s fully charged, you can leave it plugged in to its charging source (the sun or wall outlet) and the power passes through it and it doesn’t have to use the energy that is stored in it.
Easy to Transport
It’s easy to move from place to place because it’s light weight compared to other generators in its size and it has convenient carrying handles built right in.
What is the Safari ME-XP?
The Safari ME-XP is an optional expansion battery for the Safari ME. It plugs into the back of the ME and gives you 3x the stored energy than the ME alone (922Wh for the ME + 2048Wh for the XP = 2970Wh). The XP must be used with the ME. The XP gives you more stored energy that works with the ME.
How big is the Safari ME (weight and dimensions)
It weighs in at only just over 45 pounds. The dimensions are 18.7” L x 12.8” W x 12.8”.
What is the Safari MEs rated capacity in terms of Watts (how much energy it can output) and Watt Hour (how long it could output)?
It is a 24V, 922Wh (watt hours or how much energy it can store), 2,000W continuous (watts or how much power it can output at a time) and a 4,000W surge (at startup).
How long will the Safari ME last?
The Safari ME comes with a 1-year warranty but it can last for years and years if you take care of it.
