Hey all, seems my converter went.

I have LiFePO4 batteries and was wondering if I need a special converter, or if any 100a will do? Do I need one with a charge profile or something?.

When their questions were easily looked up, yes. Delete it all and start over, but that's a good converter.

Just for the record you do need a charger. It's part of the converter. The linked article explains what type of charger the converter should have. You asked...he gave you the path to an answer.
Quit acting like unappreciative _itch and realize you got the answers you asked for.
2oldman supplies more good information on this forum than you ever will. Use the block function for both him and I if you don't like the answers you get.

I read all 2oldman’s posts and mostly agree with him but not always. Informative, helpful and I usually read what he looks up on the web too.

It depends on the battery
Battle Born has or had a deal with Progressive Dynamics to make a special converter for their batteries.
Some companies build charge controlers in to the battery (Generally smaller ones)

Some converters can be "Adjusted" one way or another... (Please do not ask me which or how)

I think you answered your own question if you knew enough to ask...
