    If you buy one open it up and let me know if it's been padded out with old roof tiles and builders foam….

      Yeah, normally lithium batteries are killed by the radiant heat in a cars engine bay so I'd be interested to see what they've used as insulation/cooling to get around this.

        I think you'll find that the majority of lipo batteries aren't rated or warrantied for under bonnet use.

    These cheapo LiFePO4 on eBay, gotta be careful if you can't test actual capacity. I know the brand "VoltaX" actually tests their batteries: $414.17 for 100Ah https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/274387309900

    Stay away from "LanPlus", I can confirm their LiFePo4 is BS (At least was 2 years ago)

    •  

      I would stay away from VoltaX too. Recently one of their reps confirmed on their FB post, their batteries now only comes with 1 year warranty. Down from 3 years previously.

      •  

        I have seen reviews and testing of the Voltax batteries and they seem decent and true value.

        For the low price 1/2 to a 1/3 of more well known brands that offer more features and longer warranties,

        even with only 12 months warranty they represent great value as entry level lithium storage.

        This 125mAh Atem Power battery although also tested as decent quality only has around 105AH too,

        so as long as you are aware of that ( check weight and size as well as youtube review/testing ) this is also decent

      I bought 3 100Ah lifepo4 batteries from LanPlus April last year, one had a bad cell, they happily paid return postage and expressed another out. Tested all 3 for actual capacity, they were all within 1ah over or under 100ah

      Tested the one that’s constantly being used (back of Ute running fridge and travel buddy) again February this year got 99.05ah..

      Maybe I got lucky but they are great, especially for $313 each

    Seems these batteries come in at 100Ah according to this review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzN2Y1FQFDk

    I know there is a big price difference but really you are getting 1 year warranty with the Atem battery vs 5 years for the Renogy and twice the cycles. I think it's worth paying a bit less than twice the price for the Renogy https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/293282822929?_trkparms=aid%3D111...

      I'd rather build my own with cells shipped from aliexpress than buy one of these crazy budget brands. Their warranty is worthless anyway, even if it fails within the warranty period.

      •  

        I hear people talk of doing this but I've never looked into it, I do need one so I might price it up

          It's much better value at bigger capacities (280Ah being the current sweet spot), shipping is generally about as much as the cells themselves.

          You also need to get a separate BMS - daly brand ones are commonly thought of as a good mid level choice.

    What do people use these batteries for?
    For solar storage isn't it better to go with a company backed battery storage solutions?

      Camping / touring

      also i own two 12v100aH voltax - they work well, dont believe the bad reviews you may have gotten a dud

  •  

    I bought one of these a few months back, tested at just under 100ah so sent it back.

    Also the power meter from the same brand was faulty and reported the battery's capacity as about 70ah (I calculated actual 100ah capacity using a clamp meter and timer).

    Avoid!

    I don't think this should be going under the bonnet?

      Who said it should?

      What kind of vehicle needs 100Ah under the bonnet?
