I'm still pursuing the Volta system. SMCW is working on an estimate. If I do push the button it will be late fall/spring before they can get to it. However, I stumbled across Relion Batteries. They have a Low Temp Group 31 LiFePo battery that can charge as low as -20C!! It uses and internal heating element that picks up off the Charger. It will also work fine with the Magnum Inverter Charger.

I'm going to continue researching this one as it might be a half-way stage for me if I bail on the Volta System. Very interesting approach to the Li. If they have a Group 24 that would be plug and play I'll be really tempted as my AGMs are going on 4 years old now so I need to do something in the not to distant future.

I've got one eye on these emerging technological options, and I'm interested to see what shakes out in Mcrider's initiative, and what shakes out generally in the market.

Our lives have taken on a different focus recently, and our Interstate projects are on the back burner for at least the next 6 weeks while we (mostly I) wrap up a phase of work associated with that.

One thing is abundantly clear to me, though -- I need more tech, not less. I continue to be inadequately equipped for how I'm using our Interstate now, especially in the area of security.
