I am planning the electrics for my new vehicle (when it arrives soon) and I have a question about charging.
I will have:
150W of solar
30A DC-DC charger.
110Ah LifePo leisure battery.
My question relates to the DC-DC and the connection of the solar controller:
Whilst I initially wanted to use...
Bought in excitement, selling in disappointment. The lithium scene is too soon for me. The low temp restrictions are a problem for my lifestyle.
Bought from Alpha Batteries 2 weeks ago for £500. I think £450 is fair for anyone who wants it?
Can meet local to Radstock, Somerset
Selling all the...
Has anyone attempted to fit heat pads to their Lithium battery?
I have a digital relay (thanks @Dellmassive) and three heat pads wired in parallel.
My question is, where best to place the pads? Under the battery or somehow attach them to the sides?
Here the pads are set under the battery - given...
I've been doing my Valence upgrade, along with all associated chargers etc in little momenst of time I've found over the last few weeks and decided to take the afternoon off work today and finally get it all completed. Now everything to do with the new electrical install has gone fine with...
As it's hovering around 0/1C and I'm still using my van - I'm concerned about my Lithium batteries longevity if I'm using/ charging it at these temperatures.
Has anyone fitted a heat matt to address these colder temperatures?
1 off Victron orion tr smart 12/12-30 isolated £210.00, unused in box.
1 off Victron Smart Solar MPPT 100V/20A, £110.00, unused in box.
1 off Renogy12v 100ah smart lithium iron phosphate battery, £600.00, in box, never connected, not activated, a couple of case scratches.
Or the lot for £800.00...
Looks like I may have missed out on the Valence battery group buy.
Anything else available?
@Dellmassive do you think there is a possibility that any more of the valence batteries will be released for sale in the future?

with a lot of members having these batteries now, the other thread was being swamped.

Have a lithium set up that has somehow failed on day 3 of a 1 week trip...
We have the Renogy DC-DC charger and one of their 100ah lithium smart batteries. The Renogy setup appeared to be working fine but this is our first extended road test of the system.
On the drive at home...
So, van has returned from its kitchen fit.
All electrics now hooked up and every thing is working well, (so impressed with the Victron kit) except that I can't get my generated power to the battery.
Kicking out 100W, the BVM reports no influx of juice.
There's a plethora of settings in both the...
Hi guys, I’m new here, I have a motorhome but not a T6 but bear with me as this could be life saving for you! Yesterday I took my ALLPOWERS 288wh solar generator I bought in April last year and has worked perfectly out of the camper van to use in the garden with the kids to charge an iPad, (I...
I'm seriously thinking of buying one of these verses an AGM equivalent;
Battery Masters 100AH
Anyone purchased from Battery Masters?
I'm going to fit this at the rear of my LWB, so attracted to the weight reduction!
My solar panel will keep this topped up nicely.
I have a general build thread in the works (Our T6 build journey...complete beginners!) but starting a separate thread for the electrics so that people can tell me in one place if i'm going to set my van on fire.
After much research and deliberation we decided to go the lithium route with our...
This week, I bought 2x 130Ah Valence Lithium Iron phosphate batteries, and some (but not all) of the Victron kit I need.
I've also spent loads on tools ( I love buying tools), the hydraulic crimp tool is great!!
Please see the diagram below, I think this is pretty much as it should be, and I...
