Battery opinions

1021 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Sunking
I plan on doing a rather odd conversion of an old 96 ford bronco (yes, I know, heavy brick), and all opinions aside from the vehicle, I was curious who's had good/bad experiences with the batteries on the market?

I'm essentially looking for a recommendation for a manufacturer and a type of battery for the bank I will need to create.

For new batteries you may look at CALB, nice chemistry (less flammable), good power levels, but heavier than say the Tesla batteries.

Cost wise you cannot do better than converted OEM packs, Tesla, Nissan, or Chevy.

There are also LiPo style batteries available new, I don't have experience with those, there is an electric drag racer who sells them on here.
