Considering;
I spent under $2K for 315AH and a 75A charger.
Prowse is showing how to DIY a 100AH for under $500.
One BMS and less case should make the new BB much less expensive.

LiFePo has many other benefits than cost, and isn't as expensive as it used to be.

Hopefully it’s dimensions will fit my TT tongue. 250 AHs with 200 + or - usable is more than enough for our needs


If it is Battle Born, 250 ah will be useable. It is in their design parameters of their other batteries. That baby will be expensive; I hope you have a good battery lock box!

I would assume 250 ah would be size 8D

If you run your MW off inverter drawing 130 amps for 10 minutes from that 300AH Li 8D, is that "continuous" and so over its 100 amp rating, or is that short enough time to be "peak" at the much higher amp rating, so you would be ok?

Relion doesn't show so probably would have to talk to someone to see if there an x amount of minutes.

If you look at this data sheet for Lifeblue 300ah battery you would have no problem running that load.

When buying dropins not all are created equal. Check out the small details to make sure it will fit your power wants.

I agree. I spend a good amount of time watching his reviews.

That would be reason to have two in parallel or go 24v. I would not want to run it over the specs by design.

I was under the impression that 1C was a "rule of thumb" with LI for current (amps). So a 300 amp-hour LI should laugh at a load of 130 amps continuous.

iirc the Battle Born can do 3C for five minutes.
