I am thinking about making a 20Ah LiFePo battery for my jeep with 4 tenergy LifePo4 cells from eBay.
I will solder the terminals directly to each other, but for the leads going to the car, can I use 6awg wire connected to some anderson connectors?
I already have one of these anderson connectors on my car that I use for external 12volt items such as power inverters.
Will the anderson connectors be able to handle enough current to run my starter motor for a few seconds (2-3) or should I use different means of connecting the batter?
I cannot find how much power the starter on my Jeep is, but I'll figure it out when I get home tonight. I will measure how much the voltage drops when I turn it on, and from there I can figure it out.
While I already have all of these connectors, I am open to better solutions as well.
P.S. I am planning on doubling the capacity of the battery to 40Ah once I get it up and running. So please don't tell me that 20Ah isn't enough for a jeep. :)
