CityStromers - still running!

We have several customers who upgraded their electricusing the Winston Battery cells. Actually these lithium battery upgrades date back to 2008 to 2010 and make our oldest project references. After some 10 years several of the customers still run the CityStromers and even operate.

LFP as starting battery

LFP as a starting battery – two concerns

Question: I want to use the LFP battery (4x 3.2V cells) for starting of my car. What SBM should I use to protect the battery?

You cannot use a SBM to protect the starting battery. For starting the car, the current will be very high,hundreds or even nearly 1000 Amps, it is not possible to disconnect such high currents.

WARNING:Additionally it is not possible to disconnect the battery from vehicle circuits. The car electronics may burn or become faulty of the battery is suddenly removed from the circuit, as a result of disconnection, during the operation (when the engine is running).
