Does anyone have a PDF of LiFePo4 MSDS?
That’s hazardous material specs for shipping these batteries
Cannot find anywhere on manufacturer’s sites😂

Curious if anyone has bought from Lythbattery in China. I have a quote from them for Calb CA180 cells at a good price. They seem to be a solid large company in the same area as Calb.

Hi all!
I couldn't search this thread .. database error was reported.

I have a promariner 1240p shore charger, proslocharge isolator for agm starter battery and lipo4 (battle born) house batteries. balmar voltage regulator for charging off the alternator.

I set my 1240P charger for AGM profile (14.4 volts) and the charging seems fine. At some point of time when the charger decides that charging is complete it goes into standby mode and stays at 12.9 Volts. My batteries dont start charging again till they drop below 12.9 volts and the charger wakes up.. which is a hassle because then i end up going out with < 20% batteries charged.
Any options? Use the 1240P as a PS? can i set the voltage to say 13.6 and forget about it? both lipo4 and Agm starter will be okay?
Any other fixes?

Cheers!

Contact Battle born. They have a good tech support rep. You may have to change engine start battery to match charging profile

Battleborn guys are ridiculously good. They are responsive and great at handholding.
Promariner 1240P has a custom battery mode and in profile 2 you can set charge at 14.4 and float at 13.6. Keeps the Lipo4 batteries are close to full and all is well.
