    If you need a 150Ah battery, you use a 150Ah battery.

    The original (Toyota) cells were 6500mAh or 6.5Ah. the original (jacktheripper) LiFePO4 cells were also rated at 6500mAh. To say they are no good is well, just silly...

    Yeah lets hope this thread stays on topic and doesn't get pulled off topic again, even though I enjoyed @T1 Terry info, since it fits my hybrid project more closely. Sorry for my part in taking this thread offtopic.

    If the tech specs are way off then the product and company are a scam. One way to see if something is a scam is to see if anyone compains about it or if major companies are using them.

    LiFePO4 can used for be EV and Hybrid grade batteries. Tesla uses them. All of China is enamoured wth them for their EV tech. Many people have chose them for their EV projects over the years, including for racing purposes and model aircraft. Why? Because of their pros and cons. Pros are they are cheaper and tend to last longer than Li-ion. The cons are that they can't be made to discharge as quickly as a the most high end lithium ion batteries, but can come realatively close, and that they are slightly less energy dense than Li-ion in general.

    :oops: My bad, I'd didn't read it correctly as you say.
    Still trying to figure which line on the graph is voltage and which on is current. The values up each side of the graph are blurred on the link I found, do you have a graph with clearer values on each side that can be easily read?

    I have this pack for my 3rd gen. Nothing wrong yet. MPG has been 40-46mpg. I'm accounting for the incline/declines I go through around here in Tx

    1.0

    I know nothing about 1.5. seeing as how the website is sold out on everything it must've been a good sale. I'm still waiting on any bad reviews to see what went wrong.

    Thanks!

    I signed up on their website for their newsletter and got one dated October 31, 2021 states they were being shipped to orders placed starting the "previous few weeks". Serial starting with "S" and label stating 7.0 Ah rating on the blades.

    Excited to hear from anyone that has one...
