Lion Energy Safari Lipo Batteries

I just notice that Costco is having a sale on Lion Energy Safari Lipo batteries. 2, 105 Ah batteries for $1400. I don't know anything about the batteries and am not recommending them, just pointing out the sale for anyone considering a battery upgrade. Probably a pretty good deal, if they are good batteries.

They were also on sale earlier this year.
Here is another thread that discussed them in more detail:

Thanks for posting. A lot of us were waiting for them to go back on sale.

Just to be clear, these Lions are not LiPo (lithium polymer) batteries. And that's a good thing. You/we would not want a big LiPo battery in our RVs. It's bad enough that we have them in our phones, tablets, and laptops. LiPo are more efficient and have less weight, but are not as safe as the LiFePo4 that we want in our RVs.

EXACTLY These batteries and most RV batteries are Lithium Iron Phospate sometime referred to as LiFePO4..... much safer than LiPo

I mentioned this because in recent weeks this is the third time I've seen the LiFePo4 batteries referred to as LiPo. One does need to be a bit of a battery geek to know the difference. I knew because my granddaughter's drone uses LiPo and I have a LiFePo4 in the RV.
