Lithium ion batteries?

Has anyone tried replacing the standard Group 27 battery with a lithium ion battery? I like the idea of not having to deal with a new battery for a long time.

If I were to do so, would my current power converter (2020 16'Scamp) need to be changed out?

Thank you!

I was told...

...that adding the "Remote Pendant" would allow mine to fully charge the battery, (LiFePO4 batteries on mine) I also have a dc to dc charger for the tow vehicle and a solar panel to charge the LiFePO4. It looks like it's working but I have not been out for a weekend yet. Check the model number on your .converter. https://amzn.to/3J4j5gy

reply to this thread

good information. thanks! had a common sense idea and simply looked at my power converter instead of trying to find it online. Duh! Went to the Progressive Dynamics website and they have a nice chart of how to choose the replacement converter/charger based on what you already have. haven't chosen a battery yet, but Battle Born will send a quote for both the battery and charger that will supposedly include some discounts. Not sure I want to spend the $ for Battle Born, but their customer service is purported to be stellar, and that has been true for me so far today.

If you get the pendant/charge

If you get the pendant/charge wizard for whatever model converter you have it will work fine. The boost setting sets the charging voltage to 14.4v which is perfect for charging lithium. Mine is going strong about 2 years now.
