Received my Shorai LiFe Battery today from TwinWorksFactory Racing
Here are the preliminary observations:
The video pretty much tells the story
One thing I should have added directly in video - the headlight (etc) load during the 10 minute 'soak' I would estimate at ~ 150W.
The 10 minutes was a purely arbitrary number - figured that was a pretty good soak and not sure how well at all my AGM would have stood up to that!!
Similarly for the 10 cycle test, also purely arbitrary; I got the feeling could have done significant number more.
Initial impressions as soon as received the shipment were extremely positive.
It is hard to conceptualize just how compact & light-weight this really is until you hold in your hand, evident as soon as you pick up the shipping box!
Just under 0.75 kg (1.7 lbs) for the 14 - even lighter for the smaller capacity ones.
Then when you open the Shorai Product carton, you find the battery packed with an array of adhesive foam pads - which both protect the product for shipping and also provide padding to fill the additional OEM space. Nice touch to have this included.
And also a 'spare' set of Terminal bolts!
Size comparison vs my SVR AGM (which was - and still is! - an excellent battery itself)
