Hi All,

I got a quote on Lithium Titanate

"Max discharge rate is 10 C so 900 amps for 90 ah and 1200 amps for 120 ah

The 120 will be 30% more expensive than the 90.

Price for 90 ah is $1500 cad and for 120 ah $1900 Cad per battery. It’s not a regular battery, so needs to be custom made.

I’ll get feedback on dimensions."

Far too rich for my blood, since I wish to have 600 amp-hours.

Back to SiO2 for me.

Thanks for watching for these. I am thinking heated LiFePO for the weight savings right now, but I won't do anything for a couple of years yet. My AGMs are still very good.

I'll be doing SiO2. At my age, they come with a lifetime guarantee, and they are 1/4 the price of the Titanate chemistry.

map40,

I need cold weather batteries. LiFePo4 are not useful in the cold.

How does LT perform in the cold? Always going to be more $$$ until they standardize production and have some in stock.

But ya know, I kinda like that. I’m pretty sure if we ever get thru that part of Saskatchewan we’ll be looking him up and inviting him to a rack of ribs and a bottle of wine. I’m fairly certain it will be an interesting dinner. [emoticon].

LT are good to -40 which is impressive. But at 1900 Cdn for 100 amp-hours.....

They are able to do 10000 cycles, so in the long run they would be slightly cheaper than SiO2. But--I'll not even have enough cycles left in ME to outlast 1500 cycles as a weekend warrior.

The LT have a lower storage density than LiFePo4.

BTW the company I was writing to has a 100 amp-hour LiFeP04 for $400 Canadian. Their store is at Lac La Biche Alberta. Which is one heck of a good price.

I did ask them about SiO2 and that seemed to fall on deaf ears.
