298 mm long (I let them know so they can fix it). I had to take off one of the hinge arms for the door and modify it...

Are they silicon gel batteries, silicon AGM batteries, or silicon lithium batteries?  I look forward to your pictures and a link to your source.

Lithium Ion batteries with Silicon anodes.  I just had to look, because all I had in my mind was silicone oil.

Wonder how the prices compare to Lithium and Gel batts?  With Lithiums still in the $900 range, buying 6 to give one 600 amps is a pricey decision!

I see dr Goodenough is on their  board.  I mentioned this a while ago.  He won the Nobel chemistry prize in 2019 and invented li-ion batteries 38 years ago.

Any idea on pricing?

Only interested in the silicone ones personally.  -20C to 70C.  6 times faster recharge.  Non flammable.  I passed 7 years ago on li-ion.  This is the fix.  Where and how much?

Bob that's why I went with them because of the cold. If I ever have trouble starting the engine in the cold I could use heavier cables and put in a high boost solenoid. I was talking with the person I got the batteries from yesterday and told him...

Ok, one more time.  LiFePO4 is NOT flammable.  The electrolyte WILL NOT burn.  It will smoke and stink but will not burn.

But please post more info and results on your silicone cells.  I'm curious.  Are these LiFePO4 with silicone added?

Any chance all of you can drop the "e" from silicon?  This battery technology...

The technology actually looks really promising. It's just another type of lithium battery really with some tweaks that make it much more efficient. But I'm not sure that the fast charging is very useful in our application. it would be very...

For those who are interested in technology and li-ion batteries watch the Munro tear down of a Tesla model Y on U tube.

The Tesla and all the other car makers he has torn down have cooling and in Tesla's case heating of the banks built in to each...

In going through the links that are above.  They are using the "E" in Silicone. 

Also one thing I did not think of is there is a drawing that shows the volts and amp being drawn by a fan over time. As the voltage goes down, with the battery being...
