Re: LiFePO4 Conversion on sv BeBe - SM#387


 

FYI, I have seen some scary teardowns of Lifepo4 batteries from China. This is not to say that they all are bad. Some are great. My point is to be careful and research these as much as possible. There are some YouTube teardowns available to look at. I took the still shot below from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OW3QCeWFDys

Not only was this one thrown together, but it also had no internal circuit breaker. When it has a problem it will simply meltdown or catch on fire.

Wow ,Willem !

   Your experience and these prices suggest a tipping point.  (We have just renewed our lead acid batteries in Greece for Euros 210 each......)
