Is this because the LiPo can be discharged to 20% as opposed to the AGM only being able to be discharged to 50%?I look forward to your review. 40ah lithium should be equal to a AGM Battery twice the size. Keep a solar panel on it all day and it should keep a fridge happy all night.
Any, but the larger and more efficient you get the less time it will take to recharge. 100watt or greater is what I would use. 200 watt would be even better.Interesting. I've been casually looking around for a power pack like this (so many out there and they're all a pretty penny). Any idea which solar panels would work well with this unit (I'm a fan of the flexible, easy to store kind)?
Flexopower themselves makes flexible solar panels. Very durable as well. Check this out.Interesting.

Where did you get this info? Not to be contentious, but AH rating is AH rating. Discharging a lithium battery too far can cause issues. Trust me, I design battery solutions for military and space. The battery should shut down to prevent discharging too far, since this can be dangerous, as in it may catch fire and explode when you recharge. That is why every battery pack carries an onboard computer that monitors the charge state and is supposed to shut down if it is charged too fast, overcharged too far or discharged too far.Yep. Lithium should be able to go to 0% unless this is a subset of what is like in our phones, etc these days.
The internet. Wrong info, ok. Thanks for the dissertation. You don't need to type things in CAPS. You know more about the subject fantastic. I'll unfollow this thread as to not cause any more harm on the "facts".Where did you get this info? Not to be contentious, but AH rating is AH rating.

Your results show that the unit is running a lot smaller duty cycle. That is great. The more you open it, the harder it will have to work. The better insulated it is the less it will have to work. That is why is pays to get an insulating blanket for your fridge. I included the "dissertation" so others might be able to look at this commonly asked question. The math isn't hard, but every need comes with a different set of numbers to feed into the equation."While it is a very nice, small, and handy unit, it is not the answer to everybody's needs. For what it costs, if you have the space, you could put an additional dual deep cycle battery setup in your rig and have several times more capacity, and add an inverter for the 120v. "
No way your gonna come close to under 400 bucks with another battery and all..........Unless you know of a deal I missed?
Actual live test powered a fridge 3.5 days if I remember the posting/review.
Appreciate your help guys
PS just seen that the unit also has a built in MPPT Controller, another plus......
