I have run mine down to about 30% and was looking like i was going to get the full 100ah usable, was still in the 13v area
Hey guys,Has anyone out there got one of the iTechworld lithium batteries? View attachment 63829
They say the battery has it's own BMS inbuilt so it works with chargers that don't have a specific lithium charge algorithm. Pretty sure they're also able to handle being installed under bonnet... But we've all heard the saying if it's too good to be true then it's probably not true so just want to see if anyone has experience with one of these before I start putting $$ aside
I have owned the iTech120 for over a year now. I am not sure what had happened but it died after 1 year. I installed it under the bonnet and managed by a Redarc DCDC Charger. After a few months of installation, the outer shell started to deform. Buckled around the outside, kind of melted in some thinner plastic covers on the top. I tried to claim warranty initially but I was assured that it was perfectly fine and safe to use as there is an internal shell to protect the main cells that can cop up to 250 degree heat. So I used it for another 3 months or so and it died on me. Had to send it back at my own cost of around $80 to get a new replacement. They have now discontinued this model and replaced it with the newer iTech120X, which I believe would address some of the short comings of the older model. Its cost $980 now. I originally thought the iTech120 was a great product but when it started to deform and died, I am not sure. May be the plastic used is too soft or the BMS inside is not as durable as expected. I think to main risk to think about when you want to use this is "what happen if the internal BMS system failed?" is there another safeguard because if it died and no longer control the charge rates etc, can it lead to fire or explosion? I am still taking my chances but have so far cut my bonnet and installed air vents and bonnet scoop to keep the engine bay temperature low! my dealing with iTechworld is positive, though they can take a bit long to respond at times for some unknown reason. Hope it's not due to too many warranty claims!
How is this going after a few months I just ordered a 120xhopefully my I tech world doesnt do the same as above my battery lives next to the turbo View attachment 68868
