Can you share more experiences? how many days it lasts and still able to effortlessly cranks and stars the car? experiencing any heat after/during driving (being charged by car's alternator)?
I read your other thread - some gentlemen commented it may lack of charging/discharging protection circuit and could either prematurely damage the battery or cause fire/explosion (via non-regulated charging from alternator or over discharging). I mean this Battery tender made Li-Iron battery is soooooo light and cheap (compares to those listed in this thread)... we ElIGE owners shall jump all over to grab one - if there is no concern of battery causing fire / explosion
Who can get a confirmation from Battery Tender that this series of battery can be used in 4-wheel autos?
I have had no problems, and I do not know how many starts it will take before failure since I do not let it go to that level as it will damage the battery. I have a cut off switch and I use it when I won't be using the car in a while. The "fire" concerns are from lithium ion, not lithium iron, which is why I tried to nip the misunderstanding at the bud, but obviously I was unsuccessful. Actually there are lotus users of liFePO4 batteries, and yes I am surprised there aren't more. Easy weight savings.
(Update) I just put the lifepo4-specific tender on just to check, and it says my battery condition went from flashing green to 100% in a few minutes, which means its healthy. Also the box specifically says 60% lighter than agm, no risk of leaks, no risk of fires with punctures.
