Can someone recommend a Lithium battery
for our dinghy
I am looking to buy a LiFe (Lithium Iron Phosphate) battery
for an electric
start/power trim 20HP outboard
. Yes, LiFe are more expensive, but research
tells me it is smaller, lighter, holds a charge longer, and is faster to charge.
My 20HP outboard
requires 500 CCA according to the manufacturer. The battery sites don't even list outboard LiFe batteries
uses, and they all do searches based on motorcycle or ATV model info. I can't find one that is searchable by CCA.
1. Will a standard Tohatsu 20HP charger
be sufficient to keep the LiFe battery charged without overcharging?
2. Is there any reason to fear using this battery in a marine environment
3. Can anyone help me locate the right battery for this application? Will this one work
It says it has 507CCA, but it's not clear how they rate their batteries
