There are a number of different battery sizes
that you can get from Lithionics that contain an internal BMS.
I chose the type with the external BMS since I wanted the BMS to communicate with the coach as one large battery bank. Lithionics does make batteries with the BMS built into the battery which may be more of what you are looking for.
BB has batteries that come in two sizes and two voltage options (12 and 24). Lithionics has more options available for sure. What I found is that I could pack more capacity into the available battery bay in my coach with Lithionics than I could with BB. It would not have been possible to put 12 BBs in the space I was able to fit the 2 600AH Lithionics batteries.
For my project, I called Lithionics and talked to a very knowledgeable person who helped identify options and provided a straight forward project diagram and quote. They need to know your available space, current charging system, etc... There's a Youtube channel by Lithionics
if you are interested in more. Here's a video by Lithionics comparing their BMS tech to BB.
