Lifepo4 batteries questions...

Hey All..
Have got my hands on some (3) valence batteries u1-12RT 40ah 12v
They came with some 14a chargers ... DPI 5 12014 6 120
same charger on ebay
Would like to adapt them to a house bank if possible.

Does anyone know if it is possible
1. to connect these batts in parallel? for a 60ah, assuming I bottom balance them all?
2. If I can run these chargers in parallel? for a total of 45amps bulk, or do I need to either buy a 50am lifepo4 charger or disconnect them and charge them each separately

Re: Lifepo4 batteries questions...

What did you find out on the Charging of the Lifepo4 batteries? I am working on the same set up. I am thinking of putting in a disconnect and using more then one charger for the batteries. Thanks, Craig.
