Do you have a MPPT controller? MMPT's have different setting for different batteries. Make sure your controller has the setting for lithium otherwise it won't work properly.Xtraveler , our gels are failing after 6 years.
seamonkey, we use inverters with our solar. So we would need a new controller also?
is there any advantage other than longer life?
would these batteries catch fire?
Daughter has a 2004 Prius and it's still running strong.Related to lithium batteries: My friend in NY reports his wife was about to get a new car in exchange for her 2 year old Chevy. The problem? A battery designed and supplied by LG is the reason for the recall/replacement with cars catching fire. Just as she was about to get on the list for a new car, one of those caught fire putting everything on hold at the very time they were at the dealer. I point this out in case anyone is considering LG suppled Lithium batteries here in the DR. It is a HUGE issue for Chevrolet, LG and the Chevy Bolt. I just found out about this yesterday.
Good information above comparing and contrasting the new lithium Lifepo4 batteries from ese tipo.
