Starboard is the right side when you are facing the pointy end.

And "labboard". I heard that used in a pirate type movie instead of "port". Maybe that's how pirates say "left."

I was taught "A sailor named RED LEFT PORT". Gives you the light color for the port side of a vessel.

Larboard (laddeborde) was an old middle English word for port. It got confusing between larboard and starboard so the English navy dropped it in 1844 although port had always been used when referring to the helm.

GBS LiFeMnPO4 Lithium's they are 3.52 volts per cell. 16 cells for a total of 400 amp hours.

They are the first cells to have passed certification tests for on road use, which requires the cell to not catch fire or explode when dropped, over discharged, over charged, baked, frozen, crushed or pierced with a steel rod.

Each of the cells has a sense board that equalizes the cell voltages and monitors individual cell temp and voltage. All of that is controlled by a EMS (energy management system) which also manages HVC (high voltage cut) and LVC (Low voltage cut) alarm outputs which disconnect charge and discharge circuits.
