I am trying to decide on which lithium battery to buy for my RV. The GreenLiFE GL100 – 12V 100AH Lithium-Ion Battery has very little user information online. So has anyone had any experience with this brand? They are about $200 cheaper than Battleborn. I appreciate all opinions.

Hi,

I suggest looking at SiO2. They are about $460 USD for 100 amp-hours

They can be taken to ZERO volts 620 times (not recommended).

They can be used and charged at -40.

They require no specialized charger nor battery management system.

This is the first I have heard of Silicone Dioxide. Have you ever used one?

They are the newest "kid on the block". As I live where it gets down to the -30ties ever year, LI are not an option for me.

I will be getting SiO2 next summer.

Second Chance

Wherever...

They also contain lead crystals. Here's a link to one on Amazon:

I think the info in the site pianotuna linked suggests SiO2 batteries are commonly used by phone companies as back up power supplies.

The SiO2 batteries must be very new. I can only find basic reviews going back to 2019. The website claims they are comparable to lithium in terms of depth of discharge and cycles. From what I can tell a 100AH battery weight is about 60lbs. Buying 3 of them from that website drops the price to $362 a piece. That seems like a really good value. Also I wouldn't have to get a special inverter/ charger. What to do, what to do?.?.?
