Travel further, for longer with Oaktree

Have you ever dreamt about extended periods out in your motorhome, completely off grid, away from noisy campsites, with all your home comforts? But has this dream always been dampened by not having enough power to fulfil your needs? Well here at Oaktree we’ve found a solution in the form of lithium-ion, and we’re bringing it to you.


Introducing lithium-ion batteries from Transporter Energy. Lithium-ion batteries allow you to travel for further and remain much safer, and they are now available here at Oaktree as a retro fit or dealer fit option.

The future is lithium-ion

Lithium-ion batteries in campers are tried and tested; you’ll be surprised just how many of the rechargeable products you own already use the superior lithium-ion technology, and this is ever increasing, especially compared to the decreasing rate of lead acid used.

You won’t find a high-quality rechargeable product without a lithium-ion battery; from power tools such as drills, cordless mowers and smartphones, to electric toothbrushes, hearing aids, digital cameras, watches and even pacemakers.

Staying out for longer

Produced in the USA to the highest standard, here at Oaktree we have complete confidence in the reliability of these batteries, and so should you. You can immerse yourself in longer off grid travel without an electric hook-up and take advantage of experiences that have previously been unavailable or impractical.

Compared to traditional lead acid batteries, lithium-ion batteries are 60% lighter, charge 20 times faster, deliver 400% more power, have a 10-times longer lifespan and come with an industry-first 10-year guarantee. Whether you’re planning a wild camping trip through Europe, an extended stay in a hidden corner of England or need peace of mind that your family is always safe when sleeping in your abode on wheels, Transporter Energy’s lithium-ion batteries from Oaktree are the answer.

Eco travel

What’s more, by pairing lithium-ion batteries with solar panels you have the ability to produce an almost limitless green energy source. These batteries from Transporter Energy have a greater number of charge/discharge cycles before their capacity begins to decrease, thus allowing you to make maximum use of your sustainable power solution.

Why use lithium-ion?

Along with allowing you to fulfill your desire for extended and safer travel, lithium-ion batteries are far superior to traditional lead acid batteries in terms of performance; take a look at our comparison table below:

  1. Hi,
    I own a Swift Bessacarr 599 2019 model and looking to increase the leisure battery capacity by upgrading to Lithium or whatever suits our needs. I only have a single leisure battery with a 100watt solar panel standard fit.
    I am only looking to give us a bit more time to be able to wild camp for maybe a 3 or 4 days.
    We have LPG gas, 3 way Fridge and ALDE heating. We dont really need an inverter at this stage, but may consider in the future. We also have the Sargent Swift Command system.
    Would I need to speak with someone further about this as it is probably a piece of string at the mo, but interested to know what you guys can do.
    Many thanks

    1. HI Clive, I wonder if you got sorted. We are catching up on these comments a bit late. If you head to https://ecotreelithium.co.uk, that is the main battery website. If you are looking for help with installation we recommend contacting BlueFix Energy Solutions. The contact details for our installers are all on the EcoTree website.
