Hey there,

Im having some issues with water condensation in my DIY Lifepo4 Battery (280Ah Eve Cells, 8s).

When the Caravan is not heated, the cells cool down to 8-9 degrees at night. When the grey coloured van heats up from the sun, condensation on the outer walls and the connected cabels to the cell is found.

Im bothered if it can cause a short circuit.
I hate the fact, that the whole EVE cell case is not isolated ( only the blue wrapping ).

What do you do to prevent a short caused by condensation water?

I couldnt find water in the case, but im certain that it will also condensate here if the cells get even colder.

Best regards

Throw some duct seal on the box penetration, it’ll keep that humid air out of the box.

Condensed water isn’t a shorting issue. It can however cause corrosion.
Best bet is to keep air circulating on it to dry the condensation off quickly, if you can’t seal out the moisture.
