REDMOND, OR / ACCESSWIRE / March 9, 2023 / Expion360, Inc. (NASDAQ:XPON), an industry leader in lithium-ion battery power storage solutions, has been chosen as the exclusive supplier of high-energy lithium-ion batteries and power system components for all Little Guy lightweight camper trailers manufactured by Xtreme Outdoors.

The other components of the custom Xtreme Outdoors power system include a Cotek 2500W Inverter and a Victron Smart Shunt for battery monitoring using the VictronConnect mobile app.
Wellspring Components assisted in the design process for the system in partnership with Expion360. The design features a custom fabricated, preassembled component board that simplifies the installation process and helps sustain assembly line efficiency.
Xtreme Outdoors has already begun receiving orders for the power system from its network of more than 130 dealers across the U.S. and Canada.
“We chose Expion360 as our preferred supplier over the many competitors in the marketplace because our trailers require the most compact, energy-dense form factor possible as well as the most rugged and reliable option possible,” stated Little Guy Trailers founder and director of sales, Joseph Kicos. “For this, Expion360 has shown to be far and away the best we’ve found. We expect the e360 battery’s superior performance and their hands-on technical assistance will make this a highly sought-after upgrade by our camper owners.”
According to Expion360 CEO Brian Schaffner: “Expion360’s exclusive supply agreement with Xtreme Outdoors – one of the most recognizable teardrop brands in the world – greatly raises our brand awareness in the camper community. It also provides strong validation of our Li-ion battery technology and the high level of service we provide our customers both before and after the sale. We also see many upsell opportunities across their large dealership network.”
Expion360 lithium batteries are increasingly becoming the preferred battery for RV manufacturers since they deliver greater capacity and space savings compared to lead-acid batteries. They also feature better construction and reliability compared to other Li-ion batteries on the market. Specially reinforced, fiberglass-infused, premium ABS and solid mechanical connections help to ensure top performance and safety.
e360 batteries have a typical lifespan of 12 years, which is three to four times that of most lead-acid batteries. Despite being half the weight, e360 batteries provide three times the power and 10 times the number of charging cycles compared to standard lead-acid batteries. With Expion360, adventurers can enjoy the most beautiful and remote places even longer and in greater comfort.
