Also, interesting that you mentioned 16 years life for the same thing... From that article
"If you happen to run it down to 50 per cent every single night of the year, the battery will still be good after 13.7 years."
I wonder how they work that out? And if the theory will actually stand up against the test of real time use??馃馃馃

Ok
I took the bait
Wrong on so many levels
1 x Lithium is not equivalent to 2x AGM Batteries.
An 85ah lithium is equal to 100 ah AGM.
Why
Because the lithium has more usable energy without damaging the battery cells.
Lithium is lighter yes and can do more cycles
Average cycles an AGM can do if discharged to 80% DOD ( approx 12.1 volts )is 1200-1500 depending on brand.
A lithium also depends on DOD and varies from 2000 to 5000 cycles
An AGM will accept charge 5 times faster than a flooded battery but a lithium will accept charge even faster.
Bang for buck if used to it鈥檚 capacity a Lithium is better value but for the average punter there is nothing wrong with them.

Thanks for the info. Numbers I saw were a bit different. The AGM charge cycle figures were direct from the SSB website and a couple other sources 馃し馃徏鈥嶁檪锔

In any case, like I said, lithium is just an interesting option. It鈥檚 becoming cheaper quickly, but obviously still more expensive than traditional dual battery setups (like I use and enjoy). Some advantages to it though.

Regardless my main point was baintech is making that premium product here in Australia, which is rare these days

Ok back again, damm customers keep coming in and disturbing me
Lithium鈥檚 have and need a BMS
It鈥檚 functions is basically like a switch that protects the battery from over charging and also low voltage cut off. It measures temp and regulates the input current.
They don鈥檛 balance cells or other garbage that some people say but it is the vital part of the lithium battery and built inside of most batteries.

Sorry brb

I like the Baintech product but it was only the BMS made here by Baintech. Nearly all lithium cells are Chinese.
Beware of cheap Lithium and always compare the specs like charge current, discharge current and weight.
I found on eBay a 130 ah battery for $600
Only 30 amp recharge and the average is 100 - 150 ah
9 kg compared to the average 14
It鈥檚 cheap for a reason.
Most companies claim 10 year life expectancy but it鈥檚 really a guess because statistics are not real yet.
We put 5 years warranty on ours.
Always do your home work, even with AGM batteries

Sounds fair enough, you just need to pay for the insurance cover of the secure postage and that is $200 via paypal. 馃榿

Oh and see a Dr about that coughing. 馃ぃ

No, not heard anything around the traps on these but I thought that you had a set or two of the 4WD SuperStore lights? :unsure:

Got 1 set but chasing something that will give more distance..looking at kings Domin8tor Extreme 9" but spotted the zombies today..Would love to see a comparison between the two..
