GEAR: Iron Edison Lithium-Iron Batteries

Intermediate
New Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries.

Iron Edison (ironedison.com), of Lakewood, Colorado, offers lithium-iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries in 12, 24, and 48 V configurations, making them compatible with standard battery-based inverters. Storage capacity ranges from 180 to 1,000 Ah. Pre-assembled with a battery management system and DC disconnect, they’re housed in a steel enclosure with a removable lid. These maintenance-free batteries are rated for 5,000 cycles (about 14 years) at 50% depth of discharge, and have a standard seven-year prorated warranty. Lithium-iron phosphate batteries are touted for their safety and stability, as they are not prone to thermal runaway that has been problematic for other lithium battery technologies.

My Dad used to say if You have to ask the price You probably can't afford it. I hate to put all my info in their data base just to see if it is even feasible for me.
