Hello! I’ve been searching around the forum and the internet in general and can’t seem to find a solid answer for my question. Me and my girlfriend are working on building out an old conversion van and we’re currently trying to chose our best option for batteries. We’d obviously love to get lithium batteries (weight, safety, 100% DOD if needed, etc.) but we’re also trying to save some money where we can (we’re both college students). In my search, I found these batteries
Miady 12V 16Ah Deep Cycle LiFePO4 Battery on Amazon (sorry can’t post links yet!)
They’re quite small but they are lithium and I was thinking about getting 5 or 6 of them and wiring in parallel to get a larger capacity out of them. If this worked, I’d have nearly 100ah of usable battery capacity for around the same price as a VMAX 125ah AGM which weighs much more and only has a 50% DOD.
Is this a feasible plan? Are there downsides? I’m not an electrician/ my electricity knowledge is pretty small so I’m not sure if there’s a loss in efficiency with so many connections or anything like that.
Any input would be greatly appreciated
