Eh.. you made the question too broad, lol...
Simply put... 40ah... vs whatever.
in duration, larger ah is longer reserve kinda.
40ah lifepo4 on this is equivalent to about 80-130ah loosely.
But the point I am making is this is a high discharge, small reserve, pack being compared to 2 high reserve, small discharge pack.
Doesn't that seem flaky to anyone?
They are used for 2 different applications.
if I wasn't in here talking about it, I'm sure many would just see the ah of both batts and say the Jb is hundreds of ah smaller but still pushing high loads...
Well, that's generally how that works...
Lithium is plenty capable of duration but it has to be sized according to application.
That sentence means nothing specifically here except if customers only want to run at high bursts loads only... the reserve will be much smaller than banks of agms.
Weight to weight.. lithium wins I don't care how crappy the cells are but in terms of only performance... lithium is new in general to the car audio world and the terminology for lithium is DIFFERENT for agms and different things to know vs agm.
I find it very "comfortable" that lithium came on the market like it's just a new model of battery.
Its not that simple and if we were talking in person, I have paperwork of how the lithium industry is like the black market where everybody is out to get everybody. The buildhouses that is and make big companies like A123 has been in the shit for quite a few years lately.
But.. im not changing the subject, I'm just baffled, 5 layers thick, lol, of how its been adopted without people testing them with any reasonable sense.
Nobody would find it fair if I were to test 2 amps both rated at 2000w but one does that power at 2ohm but they are both 1ohm stable, right?
Apples to apples here.
Same scenario when dynamic burst ratings are posted online from the amp dyno and many people think that's for measuring power output... ugh... I shake my head.
Just need to do tons of research because there is so much info out there it's overwhelming at times.
