Here is a good new video (19:19) on LFP that should dispute some claims/ myths that get repeated on the internet from non user of LFP. With the CEO of Battleborn who seems like a straight shooter and not trying to push their product but explain lfp chemistry some.

https://youtu.be/ywn-vBjKblI

@ 9:27 talks about 10-90% use range.
@ 12:45 talks about float.

Plus a lot more info that some of use longer time users have seen or been using with in reason and not seeing no issues.

If I needed batteries now, I’d go LFP.

A company named Battleborn Batteries makes lithium iron phosphate, aka LiFePO, batteries.

So 'plating' in lithium on the charge cycle, is similar to sulfate in lead acid created in the discharge cycle
And has similar effects on battery capacity and degradation
Except it occurs during excessive charging conditions
Like cold temperatures, where sulfate always occurs during lead discharge and must be Fully Recharged to remove

Interesting video, thank you

I must be stuck in the '90s [emoticon]

I still find that FLA is the most cost effective chemistry when you look at cost Vs capacity and longevity.

The various Li varieties are very interesting to the geek in me. I have seen some hobbyists coble together some slick BMS setups. I just don't have the time or interest in going down that road.

If you are severely limited on space or weight capacity then the higher energy density starts to become attractive.

I am fortunate there. My 24v - 430a/h FLA battery bank fits nicely and cost just a bit over $800 including shipping. I live in a pretty remote are so shipping can be a killer.
