    Nearly an hours worth of a full time cruising boat power setup. Might be of interest to .... maybe no one...

    I'd need a significant winning on the Lotto before even considering some of what they have done!

    Bear in mind Lithium batteries can catch fire.

    LiFePo4 - Link?

    Sounds very unlikely.

    Are you perhaps referring to the Conception, the American dive boat which caught fire and sank in Californian waters last September? If so you might care to note that a) the NTSB enquiry isn't expected to deliver its report for a year or so. No cause has yet been determined; and b) yes, there has been speculation that lithium batteries may have caused the blaze. However, these were phone and camera batteries known to have been charging in the bunk area of the vessel. They have little in common with the LiFePo4 batteries favoured for boat installations.

    So lithium-ion batteries for small devices, unrelated to the OP's post.
