    1120ah Bank Build for 12V... Opinions Wanted Please

    I run my ice fishing trailer off of a 560ah battery i built (4s2p). It works great! I've been able to boondock for a week without charging at all. that's running my 2kw diesel heater in sub freezing temps. I also have a 2000 watt inverter and do all my cooking on a pizza oven. Also run my tv and...

    Inverter-charger or Inverter+charger? Honda Odyssey with 560ah 12v lifepo

    I have kind of a simular need in one of my small trailers. I decided not to go with an inverter charger because I've been burned in the past with all in one type devices. Plus with my batteries I want to choose when they get charged or not. So I have my charger on a switched outlet that I can...

    How to position different IR cells in the battery

    I've wondered the same thing but got no answer for you other than I think I would side with your friend on putting lower resistance cells inside the pack.

    Installing 3 12volts 310Ah (930Ah total) battery banks on a RV

    I have two 280ah 12v packs paralleled in my trailer. I run a seperate 4s 120amp BMS for each pack. I run a 2000 watt inverter from it. It works great for me. IMO the only other way to get around using only 1 BMS is to have one that controls a large contactor. The Eve 280ah cells fit nicely into...

    Will my RC battery charger work for top balance?

    you have a Life setting on that charger--- use it! put your pack together and charge with your 12v charger, then pull it apart and top charge each cell with your rc charger. I do it all the time. or you can put the pack in parallel and top charge all together.

    Group Build - 12v Battery Module (EVE 280AH)

    Here's the problem with your idea. not everyone has a 3d printer to print something like this especially for a 280ah cell. Second the performance of PLA isn't up for the task. 3rd an injected molded part is going to be costly just because of the mold needed $20-30,000. Forth the cell variation...

    Best 2000 watt pure sign wave inverter under $400

    I got the Samlex SSW-2000-12a It performs well and handles my 1500watt load just fine, the only complaint is the fans are loud. I do reccomend buying from if you are in the US. I got their fuse holder, fuse and their 1/0 cables and their stuff is very nice quality and...

    Temperature control of LiFePO4 battery banks?

    I currently have a 12v 560ah battery setup in my trailer, just spend 5 days running off of it and I'm very pleased with the performance of these cells. when I looked at the cells they remained sub 0.01v for cell balance even while pulling 60+ amps. My avg temp was around 55*F, I also let my...

    Temperature control of LiFePO4 battery banks?

    It’s not very difficult to get some 12v heating pads and a temp controller. If you are really worried about it.

    16 cell 12v battery. What is the best configuration?

    Thanks for the input. I have a resistance tester but I find it’s not very repeatable so (it does read SOC good) I think the best way for me to match is do some test cycles of them and match that way.
