Bioenno 15 Amp-Hour Battery
This is a Lithium-Ferrous-Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery. It uses state-of-the-art chemistry resulting in batteries that are both physically and thermally extremely stable. Importantly they are intrinsically safer than other lithium chemistries because of their strong ultra-stable Fe-PO bond. These batteries offer many advantages relative to sealed lead acid batteries (SLA). Here are five top advantages:
· First, they cannot sulfate, leak, or vent, like an SLA
· Second, they weigh about 60% less, and are half the volume, of an SLA
· Third, charge and discharge life cycles
exceed 2000, compared with 300 for SLA’s
· Fourth, built in protection for
overcharging and discharging and cell balancing
· Fifth, 100% of their Amp-Hour capacity is
available, whereas about 60% for SLA’s
Bioenno batteries are nominally “12” volts. When fully charged they measure 13.8 volts. During discharge the voltage will drop very slowly until around 12 volts at 90% discharged, 11.5 volts at 95% discharged, and turning off at 11.0 volts when the full amp-hour rating is reached.
This is a 15 Amp-Hour battery. It is outfitted with a Powerpole connector
and a special DC socket to permit connection to a convenient charger. This
makes it is ideal for powering radio transmitters for amateur, or general
communication. It can power a 100 watt transceiver radio for over 7.5 hours. Click on "Charger" and choose either a 2 amp ($22.00) or a 4 amp ($25.000 charger. Shipping is by US Postal, PARCEL POST, Ground service only.
