I already have used LiFePO4 batteries and don't want to use them for several reasons.
1 they suffer really bad from numbing.
2 when charged when at below 20F their capacity can be permanently damaged by 20%, the first time you do it.
3 higher temperature charge discharge cycles also damage capacity.
4 there are less battery charger options for lithium. There are none available in 48v. I know how to trick a lead acid charger to be really close but it's not perfect.

Then there is the problem that I can't order a 48v 1000+ amp hour battery bank.
I would probably really be looking for something at least in the 1500Ah+ range.
