Shopping list for LIFEPO4

Would anyone be kind enough to post a shopping list of the equipment they have used for their LIFEPO4 battery bank, such as relays, LVC's, batteries, switches etc - maybe add a link to the shops where they bough it?

It could be a reference list for future LIFEPO4 builders.

This would make it easier to decide on the switch from flooded or AGM's and therefore promote the LIFEPO4's due to more users....

This question is impossible to answer without more specifics. There just aren't any canned answers yet. It depends on the level of sophistication desired,

Re: Shopping list for LIFEPO4

It's not a specific list, just a "this is what I used for my bank" list.

example:
Tyco200 relay,
Blue Sea xxxxxx relay,
xxxxx LVC for pack, xxxxxx LVC for each cell
xxxxx HVC for pack, xxxxx for HVC for each cell
Housepower BMS, xxxxxx charger and so on.

Simply a list with usable equipment.

This will make it easier for us to make decisions on what equipment that will fit our own bank and save a lot of time looking for it...

I understand how this would help, but the list is a combination of parts, pieces and suppliers almost as long as the threads. Not to mention what continent the project was completed on. I did the best I could with that a year ago and it's on our blog and listed in the thread, but it does need some updating based on experience.
