12V Lithium-ion Battery

11

Description

Use a 12 volt lithium ion battery in place of lead acid battery.  Lighter, longer life, safer, configurable form factor

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Editor: Adds significant increased cost for little gain; may require redesign of DC-DC charger and new software charging profile; may require connection into the HVAC loop for cooling/heating under extreme temperature conditions like the main battery; requires a special containment enclosure to protect against damage and internal battery failure; may prevent the ability to “jump” start the battery if fully drained without damage.

Status

Unknown.

I don’t think anyone outside of Tesla Motors should presume to know better about battery chemistry and the best uses of each.
My car is 2 years old and will be getting its third 12v battery next week.
Better a LFP (LiFePO4) than Li-Ion, safer and no change to charger.
