very good and reliable Highly recommended .
The best place to go for all alternative energy products very knowledgeable and helpful the best place to go
Five Stars. A solar company who you can actually rely on in difficult times. Four orders with Bimble Solar over the last couple of weeks including a Victron Quattro inverter that was delivered today . Slight hold up on the first order as it was quite a few different items and i knew one item was showing out of stock . Other orders were dispatched quickly. Due to recent Solar boom it has proved very difficult to get hold of 4kw Victron inverters . I cancelled orders with 3 other companies who all lied about having stock when they had none and in most cases had no idea at all when they could get delivery. Bimble Solar were the only company to come through with the goods and one of the few companies i've dealt with over the last couple of weeks who are actually honest about their stock levels. Highly recommended , came through with the goods with flying colours at a time when Solar equipment is proving difficult to source.
NB - there is a typo on the battery datasheet. the charge temperature should read 0 - 35 Degrees C NOT 15 - 35 Degrees C
Using the technology of lithium iron phosphate prismatic cells, superior safety, 2000 cycles or more
JBD BMS Bluetooth enabled battery management system
Low temperature charge protection inbuilt
High current charge and discharge capability (150A)
Internal cell balancing
Lighter weight: About 40% ~50% of the weight of a comparable lead acid battery
Can be charged using most standard lead-acid chargers, MPPT solar chargers and alternator charging
Suitable for marine environment
*Note Smart alternators will need a DC-to-DC charging system.
The Archibald LifePO4 units are equipped with the latest JBD Bluetooth BMS.
The batteries can be charged from most Charging sources as long as they fall into the parameters of the chosen unit, with the exception of a PWM solar controller.
*PWM chargers are not suitable for BMS equipped LiFePO4 units*
If using a standard 240v – 12v Car battery charger if present, use the sealed lead acid / AGM setting if a specific lithium setting is not available.
The same applies to solar chargers, if this setting is not present the equalisation charge should be set in the off position.
The Archibald unit can be used in a split charge system where it is charged from the alternator. Smart alternator systems should be equipped with a DC-to-DC charger, please check your vehicle specs
BOAT OWNERS BEWARE - Dedicated domestic bank alternator to Lithium battery charging is not recommended, due to sudden disconnect which can damage alternator.
