New Batteries from Battle Born

I finally sprang for the new Lithium Ion Batteries from Battle Born in Reno, NV. These batteries are 100 ah each and weigh in at less than thirty pounds apiece. Also installed a new solar controller from Zamp with 60 ah capacity.

I'm hoping more lithium batteries will come out with a wet cell/AGM form factor with built in BMS

I don't need as much battery capacity as you do so two of these should fit in the same foot print of my two new Lifeline 6v. Two Battle Born 100ah lithiums would give me a useable 160ah vs 110 ah for the 6v AGM, stored under my street side twin bed.

Hopefully by the time I need to replace the Lifelines I can get two 100ah lithiums for $899. Right now the price is still too much for an additional 50amp useable capacity over my Lifeline 6v.

Hope the company stays in business. They are more affordable than the Relion 100ah lithiums

Thanks for sharing

Kelvin

I spent a great deal of time with the owner and his chief engineer. They are smart and are doing well. They are also funding research for a new concept in batteries. They are American made which was a plus for me.

It was great fun to see how the batteries are made...I think I understand batteries much better now.
