Re: LiFePO4 Batteries Knowledge Base

So off we go, we have our first contributor:
LiFePO4 Lithium Battery Installation and Research Mar Azul Adventures
Thanks ebaugh

The way I see it, if owners approve, the wiki could be used to present the various approaches, methods and results, in a more user friendly format.

Welcome to CF Mike.

There are a number of us going to LiFePO4 with good results. Balqon has had a clearance sale on cells with the 400 a-hr going for $258 each, 4 needed for a 12 volt pack.

Balqon - Advanced Transportation Solution
