Lion Safari ME Expansion Pack is an optional lithium iron phosphate battery expansion pack that pairs with the Safari ME. When connected to the ME, it provides 3X the stored energy so you can power things longer. When you need to power things longer, the Safari ME Expansion Pack™ (ME-XP) gives you 3X the energy storage capacity than the Safari ME™ alone.
Lion Safari ME Expansion Pack
The ME-XP expansion pack gives you 3X the storage capacity of the battery inside the main Lion Safari ME solar generator when it’s connected to the ME (Safari ME is required).
- Charge Retention: Up to 2 Years
- Min Charge Time with Main Unit: 4.5 hours
- Cycle Life: 3,500+
- Dimensions: 16.7″ x 9.6″ x 9.8″
- Weight: 44.5 lbs
Lion Safari ME Expansion Pack Benefits
There are a lot of things to love about the Safari ME and XP from exceptionally fast charging times, more stored energy so you can power things longer, and safety for you and the environment.
- Fast Charge & Lightweight
Can fully charge from the wall in as little as 4 hours. At just over 45 lbs, you can take it anywhere.
Made with Lithium Iron Phosphate, it’s safe. You can use it indoors or outdoors.
- Extended Use
Long-lasting life cycles at 2,500+ using the full depth of discharge (DOD) for the ME and 3,500 for the ME-XP. They can hold a charge for up to 2 years.
- Renewable Solar Generator
Use the power of the sun to fully recharge the ME and ME-XP in as little as 4 hours using multiple solar panels so you can use power without running out of power.
- Power to Spare
The Safari ME portable power unit can output 4,000W (surge) for that extra power needed and with the XP, provide power longer. The ME has a pass-through mode so you can charge and use it at the same time.
- Expandable for More Memory
The Safari ME-XP, when connected to the ME, provides 3X the stored energy than the ME alone. That means you can power things longer.
- Pure Sine Wave
The Safari ME can be used to power medical devices and with the ME-XP connected, it can power for 3X longer.
- Multiple Outputs
Power virtually anything you can plug into a standard wall outlet with the Safari ME and XP combined, and do it for a longer amount of time. The ME uses AC, USB / USB-C, or regulated 12V outputs.
- Environmentally Friendly
Produces zero emissions or carbon footprint during use. It’s good for you and the planet.

Why We Use Lithium Iron Phosphate?
- Lithium Iron Phosphate, or LiFePO4, batteries are one of the most durable and reliable energy sources on the market and have a drastic improvement over lead acid in safety, weight, capacity, and shelf life.
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.
- Long Lifespan
Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries have up to 6,000+ life cycles without significantly decreasing performance. That means they last for years and years. By comparison, the average lifetime of lead-acid batteries is just two years.
- High Efficiency
Lithium Iron Phosphate has 100% of its capacity available for use. It can be quickly charged, discharged, and recharged, again and again, reducing downtime while increasing efficiency. This makes it a great fit for a variety of applications.
- No Active Maintenance
It does not require active maintenance to extend its service life. The batteries show no memory effects and can be stored for long periods of time because of the extremely low self-discharge rate (<3% per month).
- Flexible Use
Because they emit no fumes or require little airflow, 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
Using Lithium Iron Phosphate for energy storage, you can optimize usage and help solve the peaks and valleys that occur during high and low energy demand usages. This also can help to stabilize the grid from intense demand cycles by allowing you to use the stored energy when you need it.
- Renewable Power
For the first time, green energy can not only be generated but can be effectively stored and used as needed. You can harness the power of the sun and use it over and over again.
- Lightweight and Portable
Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are relatively small and lightweight. Compared to lead-acid batteries, lithium provides great energy density at about half the mass and weight.
- Energy Independence
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 blackouts, brownouts, or when the grid goes down.
