Battery Solar Controller question on Scamp 16'

    I am purchasing a new battery for my Scamp.  I am totally new to EVERYTHING so please overlook if I do not use the correct terms for things.  My Scamp came with a converter.  This is the brand solar controller I purchased on Amazon:  Renogy 30A 12V/24V PWM Solar Charge Controller with LCD Display Flush Mount Design Negative Ground, Compatible with Sealed, Gel, Flooded and Lithium Batteries, Adventurer 30A, black. This is the Amazon link for the controller.   https://amzn.to/3rKLgvY 

    I have a Renogy 100 Watt 12 Volt Portable Solar Panel Suitcase. I also have a solar generator with extra panels so I can hopefully boondock.

    This is the battery I wish to purchase:  12V 100AH LiFePO4 Lithium Battery, 5000+ Cycles Deep Cycle LiFePO4 Battery with Built-in 100A BMS fit for RV, Home Storage, Trolling Motor, Off-Grid System, Solar Power System, Marine.   This is the Amazon link for the battery:  https://amzn.to/45qrfID 

    My question: Will the battery I want work with the controller and converter I have?  The controller description states it will work with Lithium batteries but I do not know if that is the same as a LiFePO4 battery.

    Thanks for any and all assistance, just please keep it simple so my wee little brain does not explode.

Solar battery

Hey Champ,

What year is the Scamp and what brand/model is the controller? Most of my research is in the Battleborn batteries and accessories, which is my setup, but we can probably make sure you'd be compatible with a bit more info.

My Scamp is a 2018, layout 6

My Scamp is a 2018, layout 6 w/full front bath. The name of the controller I have is in the post, if you need more info about it please ask me specific questions because I am really new to all this so I am not sure what else you need, I included the Amazon link for the controller I purchased. The link will take you to the controller and it will have a picture and all the specific things it can do. Gosh, I hope I am making sense.

I'm sorry, my bad. Ur

I'm sorry, my bad. Ur controller looks to be fine, I meant to ask the brand/model of the converter to see if it's lithium compatible.
