Here is a list of the components I’ve ordered.
100Ah LiFePO4 cells
12 cells will be wired into a 300Ah 12V configuration.
The BMS (battery management system) monitors and protects the lithium battery bank.
30A DC to DC charger
This is an important device. It protects the alternator, isolates the start batteries from the house battery, and charges the lithium battery bank.
25A AC to DC charger
This is a fully encapsulated and silent shore charger that replaces a VERY noisy one. It will charge the lithium battery bank.
280A Fused distribution block
A little expensive but you can’t beat the compact design.
I’ve received everything but the batteries. I’m hoping those will arrive in the next several weeks so I can finish the project before we head off the dock for the summer.
Next up: The devil is in the details.
