Re: SM Batteries

Hi Nick,

Before starting this experiment, bear in mind that Lithium batteries have dropped in price quite a bit lately. BattleBorn Lithium can be bought at 700 dollar for 12V/100Ah. On Amazon you'll find even much lower prices (down to approx $350). Some are badly build others are quite good build. Plenty of Youtubes around about these batteries.

Also keep in mind that most Lithium drop in replacements are only good for 100A discharge. So if you only have 2 units (12 or 24 V?) your bowthruster will push them into safety shutdown leaving the AGMs to pick up the slack. But if you go full Lithium you spread the load across all batteries and 4 units of 24 volt (so 8*12 or 4 * 24) will keep the system happy.

Cheers,
