Re: Looking for Lithium house bank experiences

I was in a yard in the Caribbean when a $7,000,000 boat burned when the lithium batteries set on fire while being charged and the Boeing 787 has had lithium battery fires!

My AGM's are 8 years old and still going strong, A 1,200 amp hour bank requires three 135w solar panels and 1.5 hours of generator charging per night while I run the washing machine, the water maker and 2 air conditioners. I never get the batteries below 70% of charge.
