I wrote the review below about a month ago – tried to work with them but I am done with this battery now. Don’t waste your money!
Last weekend the LiFePO4 12V 30Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery was fully charged Saturday morning. Due to tire problems I never got to launch my boat.
Sunday morning in my club tournament the Garmin went dead in less than one hour!!
Fortunately, the wires to my cranking battery were not hooked up but still there. I took about 15 minutes of tournament time hooking the Garmin to those wires then hooking to the cranking battery.
Eight hours later I still had 12.4 volts on my AGM cranking battery.
I am done with this battery messing my fishing up!
Fast service, works well most every trip
I ordered a 5A 12V Automatic Smart Battery Charger and Maintainer with LCD Display for Lead Acid and Lithium (LiFePO4) Batteries and a LiFePO4 12V 30Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery on Friday, June 25, 2021 at 10:09 AM – Order #7467 confirmed
I received the battery and charger quickly and hooked up my Garmin Panoptix system to it. The Garmin system, head unit and black box, is the only thing on the battery. That system had been pulling down my battery for other electronics too fast to last an eight-hour tournament day.
The first time I used the system with the Ecoworthy batter it was still running after nine hours, and all my other electronics were still running. It did exactly what I wanted it to do.
I hooked up the charger with the included battery clamps and it did fine for several months. Then it seemed the battery would not take a full charge, running down below 11.3 volts needed to run the Garmin system within a few hours. One time the Garmin went out after only 30 minutes, even though it had been on the charger for a week.
Several times I noticed the charger would not reach a full charge, showing 12.3 volts maximum. And the charger jumped from 1.3 to 3.8 amps and many numbers in between, with no consistency, even after being plugged in for 24 hours.
|I switched the battery charger to the screw on clips and it seemed to help, but sometimes my Garmin stills goes out in less than eight hours at times.
I contacted support and they quickly responded, trying to help me isolate the problem. They have responded quickly to all my emails and were very supportive.
I am mostly happy with the battery and charger and if I can make it consistent on every trip will be extremely satisfied.
