Reviews Summary for Bioenno LiFePO4 Batteries with PCM and charger
Bioenno LiFePO4 Batteries with PCM and charger Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $58.00
Description: Bioenno Power offer a wide range of batteries (LiFePO4 and LiPO) with chargers plus other related items. Their LiFePO4 12V battery comes in various capacities, 3Ah, 6Ah, 10Ah and more. All of them have a PCM integrated that protects against over- and underdischarge, allows balancing, and more. They also offer a very inexpensive charger together with the batteries, or you can buy battery or charger separately. Both the battery and the charger have Anderson power poles already installed. The battery pack is nicely encased not only with a shrink tube but also with a thin PVC box, so it is all enclosed. For more details and specifications see their website.
Prices are very reasonable and their aftermarket support is excellent. The price below is for the 12V/3Ah with charger.
Product is in production.

Three thumbs up!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This review is for the 12.8V/3Ah LiFePO4 battery with charger.
The size and weight of the pack are nothing extraordinary, but the packaging is: all enclosed and a nice cube, without openings. Power poles are already installed, so it is plug and play.

The benefit of the LiFePO4 vs the LiPO is the voltage that, for a 4-cell pack, will never be too high for a 12V rig, so no controller or lossy reducer is needed. These batteries have a feature-rich PCM installed that not only allows to balance the cells, it also limits overdischarge (cutoff at 10V for the pack), has discharge overcurrent protection (at 42A) and more.

The available simple charger also has power poles installed and only costs $8 when ordered with battery. My charger is a 15V/2A unit with CC/CV.

With my rating of 5 it is needless to say that everything worked flawlessly out of the box.

So, if you are fresh in the market for a LiFePO4 battery and charger, you will find the right capacity at Bioenno, and the price you will pay is very reasonable.
