Hello, all Amelians who are considering to replace the lead/acid-batteries by a LifePo4 bank,
I did this by importing 8 100Ah 12V LifePo4 batteries in January 2018. So now I have 3 seasons of experience with these batteries. I am more than satisfied. Of course, I had to change the charging characteristics of the 60 A charger (Mastervolt) which I reprogrammed by myself and that of the 70 A alternator. A Mastervolt dealer removed the internal controller and connected an external charge controller (Alpha Pro) with a temperature sensor attached to the alternators house.
The batteries were, because of the internal BMS-modules slightly higher than the original ones. I had only to take a little of the wooden bar attached to the lid of the compartment. This was all!
The company I bought the batteries from has sent me a few days ago an update on the pricing:
