LiMn2O4

Lithium Manganese ("Spinel"). These are found in the RIGID and Milwaukee tool batteries. I've got three V28 batteries in parallel, in what would normally be a 24V scooter. Gives me 6.5 miles range. And charge time is just 50 minutes!

I'm also looking into the lithium manganese cells from the Makita 18V lithium packs. 3.7V nominal, 1.7 Ah, 10C, affordable, and no need to balance!

Re: LiMn2O4

LiMn02 seems like it is becoming more common... like in the XB-700li. Perhaps add a option for this?

`
I assume Flooded and Wet Cells are the same for this Poll?
Thanks for starting this, you read my mine again.

Yes, Flooded and Wet Cells are the same for this poll.

I also hope is anyone answers "Other" they post what the other is.

Thanks,

Hi Chas S

Have been using the Evercel Nickel-Zinc 30 A/H with very good results ( they are not easily charged ) however if one keep a eye on their impedance and temperature , they are capable of delivering upward of 1500 WH ( 48 volts 32 A/H )taken out at the C/2 rate , have taken out 200 Amps burst( 5-10 second)when they are cold.

Also build a 48 volt pack with Panasonic HHR650D for 300WH power pack .
Additionaly a 900 WH with 40 Sanyo Nickel-Cad N cells 20A/H yes oversize beer can , have about 65 cells over from a previous job ,thinking about selling them on E-Bay,some have tab and some without,they cost us 46.50 each back in the 1989 ( and yes they are perfectly fine and will deliver the +20A/H @ C rate) they have a internal impedance of about 2 milliohms like the Pan HHR650D .
