why would there be a problemI was thinking of using this on my LifePo batteries. Anbody see a problem? View attachment 145415
So users just ASSUME that is what will happen? All batteries will be so close that they all go off line at same time and therefore don't experience the over spec charge rate?For the case you stated the battery voltages track each other very closely within 10's of millivolts so the case of having 2 batteries charge completely then the entire 120 amps flows into the one battery won't happen because the current will decrease as the battery voltages rise. Which is way it is recommended NOT to mix old LiFePO4 with new ones.
Well, I don't run my alternator at full blast now and have it belt reduced to 70% plus have a temp sensor.Your main concern would be burning up your alternator from running full blast continually.
Looking at the price of the 3.6V individual cells I can't really believe the price of those drop in batteries.I saw some to me unbelievable low priced 100Ah drop in LFP batteries on Amazon today (Amazon.com). At least low priced to me who got my last set of batteries only 2 years ago and was comparing costs of LFP to the FireFly batteries I got. Now I read Rod's article slowly this morning:
Drop-In LiFePo4- Be an Educated ConsumerLead is Dead (almost) Warning: This article is long and detailed. It may require two reads so the nuances and detail are not missed. You may be wondering why I am saying lead is dead ?The answer to that is simple; lead acid battery makers dug their own gravesmarinehowto.com
and chased down the full spec sheet attached.
To my reading this seems a good LFP battery spec compared to the items Rod's article
The 2- 200aH ones didn't space fit as well as as 4-100aH ones. I watched some tear apart tests of both and they pretty much appear to be the same. I think I may even have gotten confused by the end and didn't really order the one I met too. I was going to order the ones that had a GA warehouse that I thought might be a fast delivery time for my in FL as they are shipping to daughter's house in Jacksonville and I am in West Palm Beach and have to drive up to get and hoped to do on the Christmas trip up.What changed your mind about the ones in your previous link?
