Default [EVDL] CALB battery detailed specs anyone?

Hi Folk's,

I got the basic specs on the skimpy data sheet for my CALB-130 batteries but was afraid to drive my EV today since the global warming temp is 102 today (Roanoke, VA) and end up +20 ambient after running. All the readily available data on lead batteries like peukert, hot/cold characteristics, best charging profiles etc is from what I can find *absent* on LiFePO4 batteries. Does anyone have a good data sheet or standard detailed info on large format LiFePO4 (like my CALB 130ah cells)?

BTW, on my previous email, the two A123 ALM12V6 LiFePO4 4.6ah batteries were $790 from Phoenix Contact (through Mouser distributor). Replacement lead batteries I got nextdoor here at Interstate Batteries were $40 total 8ah I bought when I thought the A123's were bad that read 0V. My boss said to use Genesis/Enersys instead with a better warranty and way cheaper than A123 (and don't arrive at 0V and need to be separately charged). A123 advertised in the Phonix Contact catalog 15 year life but when I asked for the warranty Phoenix Contact said it was only 1 year (worse than ye-ol lead Enersys/Genesis).

Best Regards,
Mark

I don't have CALB cells but I can say my TS cells heat up faster when
they are cold and slower as they warm up. Also, Bill Dennis posted
that his cells didn't go above the ambient of 100=B0F the other day.
