NO RATINGS
This is a LifePO4 Kickstarter project that needs additional backing to sucsseed.  I am a backer and would like to see this funded before it ends 23 April 2014. Thie creater of the project is an eletrical engineer who is trying to solve his own solar energy problem, and Lifepo4 is 1/2 the price, and more enviromentaly friendly then lead acid over it life time.
