Lithium Batteries

Looking for anyone that has installed the so called 'drop in' lithium batteries for storage. I have been unable to find any reviews on them.

??? Dry camping is precisely why you might want these batteries. Allows you to not have to run the generator as much.

They are starting to show up in drag racing. But they only make sense there where weight savings is a premium. They are roughly 10x the cost of agm's in that application. Very hard to justify right now. They will get cheaper.

You could buy new gc2s and a heck of a solar install and still have money left compared to those prices.
