    Review of EVE LF280 cells from Docan Technology

    That's about what I'm seeing too. I'm still discharging slower after the last top balance and initially I was seeing about a .006v difference but once it got under 3.4v per cell it's been around 0-0.001v difference. It's holding quite well!

    Review of EVE LF280 cells from Docan Technology

    Took quite a while, but I have some testing numbers. Cell 1: 284.54 Ah Cell 2: 284.79 Ah Cell 3: 283.13 Ah Cell 4: 283.70 Ah The cells were charged in series with a BMS up to 14.4v, then reconnected in parallel and absorbed at 3.6v. Each cell was discharged individually using a 20A tester down...

    Was that $100 each including shipping? This included shipping costs, except for Paypal fee.

    Review of EVE LF280 cells from Docan Technology

    As a new person to LiFePO4 cells, I have been visiting this site for a while and learning what I can. I recently saw the forum post by @ghostwriter66 at https://diysolarforum.com/threads/our-new-go-to-lifepo4-vendor-09-20-21.28696. I decided to give them a try, and contacted @Jenny Wu to...

    Buying batteries from Aliexpress

    I was looking at the 280Ah cells listed from the first link on https://www.mobile-solarpower.com/raw-lifepo4-deals-page.html for $445.18 with free shipping. Still quite a bit more expensive for US suppliers still it seems.

    Buying batteries from Aliexpress

    So, I haven't ordered from Aliexpress before, but I was going to take a chance at the 4S LiFePO4 battery linked from mobile-solarpower.com. When I went to order, I noticed that it was asking for VAT, but I don't live in Europe, I live in the US. I proceeded to place an order anyway, but then...

    Question about inverter for small air conditioner

    No PV or batteries yet. I was planning to run 4S 280aH battery first, to get familiar before proceeding. A 5000 BTU should be running around 450 watts after startup. The real question is whether an inverter connected to a 120A Overkill BMS can handle the startup current. I know inverters...

    Question about inverter for small air conditioner

    I'm considering running a small 5,000BTU window air conditioner off a 12V inverter connected to a set of batteries. Finding details about LRA without first buying a unit and checking the compressor is an issue. Can someone recommend a 12V inverter that can handle the start up surge and run...

    Question about new cell testing

    Hi everyone! New here, but have been doing some research into this area for a little while now. I want to pick up a 12v set of LiFePO4 batteries to learn with. From what I have seen, it can be hit or miss with quality, so testing on delivery looks to be critical. My question is, what is the...
