I was not saying posting the thread itself was unnecessary, Salty. It was the five posts in a row I was a bit miffed at. And the reason I noticed was that I too was interested, otherwise I wouldn't have clicked on the thread five times to read yet another of his posts, adding to the previous one(s).
Edit: What do you mean when you say "lithium"? Lithium Ion, LiFePo4
, or something else? There is a vast variety out there. I wouldn't use Li-Ion in a boat, a car, or even a motorcycle. LiFePo4
, on the other hand. I am just a bit perplexed by the needs for charging and monitoring, and how best to go about it. When my boat has sold, and I eventually buy another, I will most likely install LiFePo4 from the get go, if
I can get a decent charging/monitoring system set up. To me, the benefits of less loss when charging (from alternator
, and perhaps even hydro generator) and much higher Ah per volume and weight compared to AGMS, LA, and Gel is simply not something I can ignore.
