The victron bluetooth smart shunt is awesome. I put that in there first because I would not have been able to find this info without it.

The lion ut1300 indeed does have 105 usable amps I verified that.
The lion ut1300 does charge at 100 amps.
One lion ut1300 does run a coffee maker or a toaster no problem.
The lion ut1300 does start my 4k onboard generator easily and well within the specs of the lion.
The lion ut1300 is extremely lite and small.
I bought the Costco deal 2 for 1399. I think that deal is over now but if it comes back I think it is one heck of good deal.


Now I have only had this battery for a month or less but so far very very impressed.

Always good to hear hands on experience for others to learn. Maybe you can explain more of the Victron bluetooth shunt for others and how it's working/ keeping track with the LFP's.

Assuming you mean the BMV-700, does it insist that your phone's Location service be turned on?

Just to do a little bragging here, my Relion 48v 100ah pack can run a toaster *and* a coffee maker at the same time. My toaster takes more energy that my air con! Those bluetooth shunts tell you everything!

I think he us using the Victron Smart Shunt.

Either way Victron Connect works fine with all my Victron devices with location services off.

My neighbors single 100a/h Aims LFP drop-in runs his 11kbtu Coleman mach 1 p.s. as if It’s on shore power - compressor spools up instantaneously even without a soft start...Same thing with my single 200a/h Aims...Victron 712 BMV SOC bluetooth ‘fuel gauge’ is also LFP compatible...

I've had 3 of those for a year.
Very happy except that we haven't gotten out yet this year. We aren't big power users but love to dig back into the forest. So far a week is easy.
