    Ray,
    Have you run your generator since moving to Lithium?

    In this video, I update you on how it's going with the new Lion UT 1300 batteries now that I have been doing some real-world tests boondocking in the southwest.

    I've been able to charge the batteries perfectly well with my existing Bogart solar controller and my Intelipower PD9260 converter charger by using its manual charge wizard button. The OEM WFCO 8955 converter charger doesn't do a great job, charges slowly and sometimes stalls at random starts of charge.



    Overall it's a thumbs up for performance. They have been working as expected.

    Things I really like:
    - faster charging
    - don't have to bring the batteries regularly to a full state of charge
    - less voltage sag under load versus lead acid
    - no maintenance

    Yes, have run it a number of times due to some foul weather in December. It was wet and cool in the desert. :)

    Good list, I would add that they are much lighter and smaller which is a big benefit for many of us with lower CCC and storage spaces.
