The research convinced me that LiFePO4 were worth using, so I now have 15 400Ah Winston LiFeYPO4 cells and a REC-BMS to talk to the SI8.0.
Billt, regarding battery management...

Did you start off by balancing the Lithium cells (if so, bottom or top balancing?), or have you left that sort of thing to the BMS?
