I know there was already several threads about this topic, but they are quite old and I didn't find any covering one more question, but lets do it step by step. Please keep it constructive
First of all - what is overall opinion about LiIon mostly LiPo batteries, now in 2020, for Versys? (I'm proud owner of gen3 (2018)
Would be nice to hear (actually read
) real life experience.
Few more detailed questions:
1) How about capacity? As I see there is something about 4Ah for LiIon vs 14Ah regular one, it looks quite a huge difference. As I have alarm and GPS tracker installed, there is continuous drain from battery, don't know exactly in Amps, but for sure several mA. So I have concern about possibility to start motorcycle after a week or so.
To suck out 4Ah from battery in a week, it takes only 24mA
Sellers say, 4Ah is about the same typical lead batteries 14Ah, as lead drops voltage rapidly, and anyway motorcycle can't be started after about 4Ah drain.
2) Charging, I have Exide smart charger ment for acid and gel batteries. Can I charge and/or trickle it with this charger, won't it damage new battery?
3) Same charging, but in motorcycle, didn't measure as don't have reliable voltmer to measure during runtime, but have read it may exceed 15V it is not good for lead batteries, but for Lithium batteries it might be dangerous as well.
Please feel free to comment any topic. If you have already installed one please let us know your setup, experience and hardware involved. (exact battery, charger etc)
