LiFePo4 Battery questions...

Recommended Posts

Would like to ditch the 50 pound Interstate boat anchor that dwells at the front of my car. Does anyboy know of any companies that are making Lithium Iron Phosphate car application starter batteries with A123 System's cells?

This seems like a wide open area for some company to fill a void. I would love to replace the uber heavy battery with a 13 pound unit.

Porsche wants way too much for theirs and as far as i can tell the only requirement is 12.8volt 18 plus Amp Hour, 480 amp

There are tons of Chinese companies making these batteries it just seems they are made for every application besides automotive.

Ive seen motorcycle specific, but not car yet, except for Porsche's.

Does anybody know what Porsche's power requirements are to run the car and all of its systems?

I may just build my own if i cant find one ... Some A123 System LiFePo4 automtive cells, a BMS and a case...done!

I have looked at the LiFePo4 batteries but only for a golf car / deep cycle. I didn't research them for their starting properties..

If you want a lightweight battery for starting, try an optima. There are others as well.

Race cars also re-locate the battery to help lower the center of gravity.

There is an American company selling batteries with the A123 cells. The name of the company is Lithiummoto.com . I spoke to the own and he will build any size battery you want. I'm having one built right now. I will let you know how it turns out in a few weeks. Until then you should give him a call or send an email. Very nice guy and he will answer any questions you have. :)
