Our concepts for battery operated pet drinking fountains

All of our water fountains for cats and dogs can be powered by battery or a low voltage power adapter. We've offered battery pet fountains for over 10 years. You can battery-power your pet fountain or plug it into a nearby outlet; it's up to you. The pumps we use are special low power consumption DC pumps, known for their performance and reliability; they run a long time before it's necessary to recharge/exchange batteries. 
We specialize in custom made fountains and craft them in the size, color and with the spout you and your cats prefer. If you don't wish to wait for a fountain crafted specifically for you (usually takes 4 to 6 weeks), please see the cordless or wireless battery operated pet fountains we have in stock for immediate delivery (generally ships within 1 business day and takes 2 to 6 days depending on your location).

Are lithium batteries dangerous? The short answer is no, lithium-ion batteries are not dangerous as long as theyíre handled appropriately. Their high energy density and low maintenance make them appealing for installations in many modern day electronics and other systems. This technology is still being developed but itís already clear that lithium power is way of the future. 

cordless pet drinking fountain

The round cordless fountain with a horizontal battery compartment comes in 3 different sizes: small, medium and large. It can be equipped with any of our spouts. The battery is hidden underneath the lid in a compartment separated from the water storage compartment. There's a rotary on-/off-switch at the back of the fountain hidden underneath the lid's elongated rim. There are two different filter systems to choose from. Because the battery/batteries are placed horizontally, the fountain can be built shorter. Be aware that the battery compartment of a small fountain is not as wide as the compartment of a medium or large fountain, which restricts the type and number of batteries that can be used for a smaller fountain of this type.

cordless round pet drinking fountain

The round cordless fountain with a vertical battery compartment is available in the sizes small, medium and large. It can be equipped with any of our spouts. The battery is hidden underneath the lid in a compartment separated from the water storage area. There's a rotary on-/off-switch at the back of the fountain hidden underneath the lid's elongated rim. There are two different filter systems to choose from. The fountain has to have a certain minimal height to accommodate the batteries vertically. A compartment of this type is smaller than the horizontal compartment described above and restricts the type and number of batteries that can be used.

pet drinking fountain with detached battery compartment
Our detached battery compartment converts your "regular" round EBI-fountain into a cordless pet drinking fountain with a hidden battery and no cables showing outside the fountain. The battery compartment can be crafted to accommodate the type and number of batteries you choose to use. And of course your fountain can now be battery operated or, as previously, ďplugged inĒ using a low-voltage power transformer. There are different filter systems to choose from.

square cordless pet drinking fountain with internal battery compartment
The square cordless fountain is available only in size large (9-inch side length). It can be equipped with any of our spouts. The battery is hidden underneath the lid in a compartment separated from the water storage compartment. There's a rotary on-/off-switch at the back or side of this fountain covered by a protective handle. Having a battery compartment inside your water fountain reduces the water holding capacity of the fountain. The size/shape of this battery compartment allows you to use large batteries but not multiple batteries. As with the other concepts, you have two different filter systems to choose from.

round cordless pet drinking fountain with battery compartment underneath
This round cordless fountain with battery compartment below is available in size medium to XL and can be equipped with any of our spouts. There are two different filter systems to choose from. The downside of this concept is that the battery compartment is smaller than the compartments in the concepts above and the compartment adds considerably to the fountainís drinking height.

economy cordless pet drinking fountain with internal battery compartment
The new economy fountain has a battery compartment at the back of the fountain hidden underneath a protective cover. The water stays open in the bowl (so no lid) and there's only one standard spout. This fountain comes with a simple foam filter, but a media bag with activated charcoal can be added in front of the pumpís inlet grid for more effective filtration. The advantage of this fountain is its simple design, making it easier for us to craft and therefore more economical in price than our other battery operated fountains.

   

Fountains with an external battery
An external battery solution is for people who donít have an outlet nearby and who donít care that a cable and battery box are visible in the vicinity of the fountain. Having a battery outside of your water fountain or using a detached battery compartment leaves more room for water inside the fountain. You can choose between a D-cell box or using a rechargeable Li-Ion USB battery (power pack). As in all of our battery options, we do not supply the batteries but provide tips on which batteries will work. The batteries must be purchased separately from a reputable dealer.

Every battery should be protected from water, but Li-Ion batteries (USBs) are particularly sensitive to water damage because they have electronics inside. We craft our internal battery compartments to keep the batteries dry but there is always the possibility of condensation forming, so it is imperative that the battery(ies) be enclosed in a water tight ziplock bag before putting them inside the compartment. Likewise, if your cat has the propensity to play in the water, external batteries need to be protected as well. You have about 7 feet of cord available, so put them in a higher place, a nearby drawer or a waterproof container.
