Just looking to play around with some lifepo4 cells, dont want to spend much money so i know i will be dealing with lesser quality batts, just want to make sure they are indeed lifepo4 and not some counterfit other chemistry pretending to be lifepo4. I pump some water up from a spring at my cabin (not very often) and currently using a used car battery that is working fine to run the shurflo 12v pump, but the battery is tired (10 years old) and gets heavy on the 600' long, steep trail packing it down and back to recharge, the pump draws close to 5a for this particular lift, and i run it about 30 minutes maybe 3 or 4 times per week when i am around there. I see some cheap 26650 5500mah 3.2v supposed lifepo4 cells i can get for 3 bucks each in bulk, just wondering what pitfalls i would be looking at to run 2p4s pack for 12v 10ah which should be super light to pack and i think could do okay with a .5C draw for 20-30 mins. I have a Victron 75/15 with cable and software to set the current limit and voltages proper just not sure if there is anything to look out for with those particular batts or the 2p arrangement.
No announcement yet.
Anybody know anything about the Fullriver lifepo4 single cells 26650, etc.
