    What 280's do I buy from Amy?

    I agree. Will do (BTW, it is GREAT idea). I haven’t thought about that although they (Lion) had been all over the news since the joined investment from federal and provincial instances. Thanks again.

    What 280's do I buy from Amy?

    Volthium might have designed/developed/created/etc… the product but they certainly don’t « produced » them. Their lead time is a gimme as far as provenance goes. I also highly doubt they have produced the BMS (w/bluetooth support, etc..). The fact remains it is an excellent product but on the...

    Just ordered alibaba 280ah cells to Canada

    Hey brother of the Great White North, I’ve not pulled the trigger yet on my FLA to LFP migration so I’m eager to see how your experience will re-aim mine in terms of expectations/costs/delays/etc as I’ve been off the grid for the last 4 years in Forestville, Qc and due to change my batteries...

    FLA to LFP battery upgrade timeline adverse effects (If any)

    I guess if I keep my wiring the same lenght for each packs (Among themselves and connecting to other devices -> chargers, PV controllers, etc...) it would minimize the effect of the pack being different ages/usage. Thanks for the comment HRTKD.

    FLA to LFP battery upgrade timeline adverse effects (If any)

    I‘m leaning towards a 2-pack config now. Twice the number of BMS (Of smaller size/price) but 100% functionnality over time. As mentionned, here are some amateur schematics of my project... Fourth year offgrid, time to go LFP!

    FLA to LFP battery upgrade timeline adverse effects (If any)

    Thank you Steve_S. As mentionned, I was looking into buying a single BMS for the entirety of the project (Daly SmartBMS 500A common port) in the first « step » (8 batteries 280Ah for a 12,8V system -> 4 groups of [2 * 3,2V cells paralleled] in series for 560Ah). THEN, a year later, simply add 8...

    FLA to LFP battery upgrade timeline adverse effects (If any)

    Considering I intend to change my FLA batteries (At least some of them) by LFP in the next few months (Let’s say 8x280Ah in a 12V system), what would be the effects/consequences of adding the same number of batteries (Same Ah), 1 year later to complete the migration to LFP. Obviously, doubling...
