    BATTERY ADVICE

    I know. I went as high end on my first purchase as I could afford, and have a Lifepo4 version with a 6amp charger. There are many importers with quality product that match the various specifications required. The US retail market is not distributing much that is suitable, by my observation. I am...

    battery life: better to not fully charge?

    No kidding! My Lifepo4 48v 20ah was $440 shipped, with a neat case with voltage readout. I consider that a bargain. I wouldn't mind a more technical discussion regarding battery management, with considerations such as temperature affecting discharge and charging and overall life.
