I ended up going with a 40Ah LiFePO4 battery (~10lbs). Pricey, but I think it is worth the price given the capacity to weight/physical size ratio. I mulled over it for weeks and finally committed, I’m happy with the decision.
I’m probably going to do a little write up on my electrical at some point as I found this to be one of the more ‘interesting’ and perhaps lesser understood/discussed topics. Though, @mpilone’s write up here was very helpful and informative.
At any rate, would love to learn more about your setup when it’s all said and done. 🙂
I took a chance and ordered a 70ah LiFePO4 battery from china through aliexpress it was 522.00 shipping included. it was mainly for weight (22lbs) reasons. I had trouble with the first charger not keeping up with the load so I bought the convert/charger. They make one that’s not the panel box just the converter PD9100L. I think that would have been a better choice but I wanted the AC bus, now I’m not so sure about needing the AC.
It took 7 weeks for the battery to arrive but one day it was at the door.
