Default LiFeMgPo4 Battery

Before we ruin the winter weekend thread.

What is known about this lithium technology? I'm not finding much.

I'd prefer the propane fuel cell but it appears to be made of unobtanium.

I'm happy with the LiFePo4 battery but this different chemistry may be just what the drop in crowd needs.

I'd really like cold fusion. Wouldn't that be fine, a nuclear powered B.

2/1D + 3/1T → 4 2He (3.5 MeV) + 1/0n (14.1 MeV)

The equation doesn't copy very well but is in Wikipedia.
Somebody is waiting to hear from us when we get it done!

"propane fuel cell but it appears to be made of unobtanium"

No, No roadtrek told us it would be available for purchase in, well I forget the number of months, or was it weeks?

WATT is a startup that apparently had their first big deal with Hymer. Yet another victim of the current mess.

Yep. Forget Hymer, sell one to me! I expect it to be money thrown away (short life) but I'd like to play with it.

We need to find out who will be buying the Roadtrek stock of the units, as they might be just a part liquidator and move them quickly and cheap.

My summer travels begin April 1 but I am interested. Should someone find that golden bit of info post it or PM me.

Barring that I'll begin my pursuit next winter. May even drive to Pennylvania (In the winter, heh, heh.) You guys sure do know how to call a guys bluff, but it isn't all bluff.

Gotta figure out where to put it and plumb propane and a vent to it. Probably start with a propane bottle in the back yard with a fire extinquisher and a battery to charge. Maybe put it in the class C first in a storage compartment.

Lithium iron Manganese Phosphate (LiFeMgPO4). You can see them in both the Veda and Bucky videos by Advanced RV. They are real. You needn't have started a thread. You could have just asked. Or just go to:

I found Valence but your link is better. So one has to get the battery and BMS. Gotta call for price I guess. It does look like the drop in answer except for not having a built in BMS.

138AH for group 27! Haven't found the temp specs yet.

I'm having trouble finding charge and storage temperature specs for this chemistry. Anybody have a link to this info?
