RE: Camping 3 months with single 100Ah Lithium

Thanks for the update Ralph..Do you use the Victron default lithium mode or put your own parameters in it? As to lifepo4 100ah batteries cost and weight,right now for $329 you get 100ah and the weight is listed at 25#..

RE: "Solar" Sub-Forum

I am for one,tech issues sounds like don't post unless you have an issue while a solar etc could be showing new systems/batteries etc without issues...Just related talk like you would travel trailers etc.

RE: What is the correct resting lifepo4 voltage?

I only switched to the lower amp when I had to leave it unattended and I didn't feel comfy leaving the heat lamp on while I wasn't there, towards the end...This was the amps used for the majority of the test.. https://i.imgur.com/9V32n2t.png height=640 width=340

RE: What is the correct resting lifepo4 voltage?

Some of this stuff is hard to understand and can consume one to try and understand it but I think different cells and make up give different results and in the end what I want is the amp hours I payed for and a fully functional battery..Battleborn uses cylindrical cells just like the new lifepo4 solar generators like Bluetti while others use prismatic which seems to be the most used in lifepo4 rv batteries... While this battery resting is on the low side,it produces the full 100ah plus some,so I'm pleased with the purchase....One article says 3.30 resting is 90% another says it's still 100% and normal...Laffin....So if 3.30 resting gives me over 100ah,it must be full..right...:B

What is the correct resting lifepo4 voltage?

I bought a Enjoybot 100ah lifepo4 battery when they were $349..The resting voltage after 24hrs was 13.30 without a load..Back and forth with the seller was interesting,so I decided to do a capacity test on it from a full 14.47V and I quit at 11.89V under a load and 12.0 resting for a few minutes foran even 100 amp hours... I am assuming that a 13.30 resting 24hr voltage without a load is okay as it appears to have the advertised 100 amp hours plus a couple...All opinions welcome... Resting after a couple minutes at 100 amp hours. https://i.imgur.com/ZGPq2hP.png height=640 width=340 Under load when I hit 100 amp hours.. https://i.imgur.com/jrrDv4f.png height=640 width=340 I had to raise the amp hours to 102 in the settings to get the % closer.. https://i.imgur.com/ncLZddD.png height=640 width=340

RE: Cheapest Li I've seen

They have several in the $350 range including the Chins,Will Prowse gave the nod to and a tear down /capacity test..Battleborn uses cylindrical cells not prismatic..

RE: Need advice on 50 ft cable to portable solar panel

What portable solar panel do you have?

RE: Need advice on 50 ft cable to portable solar panel

I don't think you will notice any difference,the way there aimed is far more important for incoming amps/watts... Two 100 watt portable panels laying flat on my truck camper roof.. https://i.imgur.com/uNuJFPg.png height=640 width=340 Minutes later,standing on the roof aimed at the sun.. https://i.imgur.com/hfBSYZl.png height=640 width=340

RE: Lithium cost keep dropping!

If watch that Chin's $359 video I posted the link to,It shows Will drawing down the 100ah Chins battery to zero and 104 amp hours through his tester..He also did one on the Zoom battery with the very same results..104 amp hours to zero/dead dark 30......LOL

RE: Lithium cost keep dropping!

If you look on the back of a Chin's battery,it says made by Enjoybot which is advertised as having cold temp cut off and for $349..Very good price and battery for $349 with ot without cold temp cut off.. I bought one and am very happy with it so far..

RE: Good or bad battery parameters?

I guess it is the first two parameters that I don't understand at 15 and 16 volts compared to: Battleborn suggest the following settings, Over Voltage Disconnect 14.7 V Charging Limit Voltage 14.6 V Over Voltage Reconnect 14.6 V Equalize Charging Voltage shut off or 14.4 V Boost Charging Voltage 14.6 V Float Charging Voltage 13.6 V Boost Reconnect 13.3 V Low Voltage Reconnect 10 Under Voltage Warning Reconnect Voltage 11.5 Under Voltage Warning 11.5 Low Voltage Disconnect 11.0 Discharging Limit Voltage 10.5 Equalize Duration 0 or set as low as possible Boost Duration 180 minutes I have been running my AGM(sealed) off of the solar through the controller and will be using Lifepo4 here shortly and don't want to fry it not knowing much about co0ntroller settings..I have the USER numbers but just can't get them to take yet even though "read" and "set" show successful it changes back to default....LOL

Good or bad battery parameters?

These are the default Renogy Wanderer pre-set numbers..Are any of them harmful to, especially a sealed or Lithium battery as I am having issues trying to get user mode to take..Everytime I "read" and "set" the parameters it does not change but says successful.. https://i.imgur.com/sru2Zs9.jpg height=640 width=440
