Pricey but tada! found one under $1000https://www.solar-electric.com/battle-born-bb10012-100ah-12v-lithium-battery.html
I was researching golf cart batteries to make the change to 2-6volt configuration and happened upon reviews for LiFeP04. Opened up a whole nuther alternative if only the converter will work.
Searched lithium on these forums and haven't seen any installs yet. Did find comments that current converters in our [email protected]
Comments I've found in other places address chargers, but don't spell out converters.
Example Q: Will regular battery chargers and maintainers such as those in a 3 or 4 step maintainer in RV power center work with a lithium ion battery? A: Yes they will. Lithium ion batteries have a broad spectrum of voltage tolerances. You will be just fine with just about any standard charger.
Info from link above (in case that link doesn't work): NOTE: Charging with an existing lead acid charger or inverter charger that bulk charges at 13.6 volts is acceptable, however it will take longer than a specialized li-ion charging system. These batteries perform best at 14.4 volts bulk and absorption charge.
Details from specs page: The Battle Born Battery requires no new hardware to run in
your boat, RV, trailer, or golf cart. Built in Battery management system for automatic cell balancing. Operating voltage 12.8 volts, Charging voltage 14.4 volts
Shouldn't the converter work to convert shore power to dc, but simply take more time to charge LiFeP04 than one made specifically to charge at higher voltage? Don't want to replace the entire electrical system, but I'm interested in increased capacity, reduced tongue weight (moving my spare tire to the tongue and installing aluminum outback platform also), as well as lower maintenance and longevity. Comments please.
