Lithium batteries
 
We just became authorized dealers of lithium batteries

We are thrilled to part of this emerging technology.

Moreover, with the addition of Solar this will be a fantastic option.

We have proven solar with lead acid standard Trojans can get you 65-70 miles

Lithium will extend that range for sure. For starters they save over 200 lbs (as in weight/distance)

I teamed up with Lithium Boost, they have developed this technology system better than others in this vertical their systems include chargers, Battery Management System (BMS), gauges.

The superiority of lithium-ion batteries is clear due to their dramatic lighter weight, significant longer life-cycle, elimination of maintenance hassle and cost, shorter charge times, longer range, and in the bottom line - lower total life cost.

15 year battery life span,
fast charge time if plug into shore power 1 hour is average.

Now if you add solar the whole system gets a 30% tax rebate.

I'll be looking for a open minded owner who want's to try it at a great discount.

the big question has always been cost.

Well here's the deal the only other dealer in FL is offering these at $6,500 plus tax or $7,000.

That price was a big turn off to most folks

We will be at about $4250 for the 100ah system

Now that becomes $2975 if you add solar, best of all no sales tax.

How is it that by adding solar the price goes down?

Federal tax rebate program 30%

Does the $4250 include the solar system? 70% of $4250 is $2975. Are you forgetting to add in the cost of the solar?

How does the rebate work? Do you send in copies of your receipt to some government agency and they send you a check?

Sorry for not being clearer

the Lithium setup installed is $4250, if you don't get the solar option at that time, you must add tax to that that amount.
So $4547.

With Solar savings
Lithium set $4250 x 30% = $1275
Now add solar $789 x 30% = $236.70

total with solar $5039 after rebate + no sales tax + $3527

so grand total $3527


ADVANTAGES OF LITHIUM ION BATTERIES
  • High power to weight ratio as compared to Lead acidic, Nicd, NiFe.
  • Less space required for installation.
  • These batteries are maintenance free.
  • High cycle life between 5000-7000 cycles (For especially designed Lithium Ion storage batteries for the solar applications).
  • High charging and discharging efficiency, above 95%.
  • Capable to produce most of its stored energy with very high discharging rate.
  • Depth of discharge is 80% for optimum cycle life.
  • Capable to produce 100% of its stored energy.
  • Tolerate high charging rates.
  • Long service life between 10-20 years (Depends on the brand).
  • Very low self discharging nature.
  • never lose their charge if stored for months at a time (as in snow birds)
  • Wide temperature range for discharging.
  • No memory effect, no need to fully discharge before recharging as other nickel batteries require doing that.

Is a lithium battery charger included or purchased separately? Can one use their existing charger?

Aren't those the ones that explode ??

It is included,


you can not use your existing charger what so ever.

Could you explain the rebate part in more detail?

jimbo2012 04-06-2016 06:49 PM

Sure IRS form

line 2b allows for a 30% tax credit for investing in solar. The solar panel and the batteries are all part of a solar system on the cart.
