- Feb 1, 2014Per the Firefly web sitehttp://fireflyinternationalenergy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Oasis-G31-FF12D1-G31-Spec.pdf80% DOD 1000 cyclesWhat you don't know is at what amp load?The highest amp load they show 20.2 amps x 5 hours whichis not real world loads for a EV.Firefly pack would weigh 975 pounds I believeabout 75 more then a gel packCALB CA 60AH pack weighs 740 pounds less.Not sure what the costs of the Firefly is but I doubt it's lessthen a gel pack. The gel cells are they around 240 each?For about 30% more then gel you can buy a CALB 60AH packThe CALB pack would have far more cycle life and greatlyImproved all around performance.I am not able to post costs on the CALB cells because it's lessthen anyone else including buying directly from CALB.Once you put in a LiFePo4 pack you will never go back to lead.Just ask any of the LiFePo4 drivers on this list.DonSent from AOL Mobile Mail

My understanding is 3x the lifetime of the typical lead acid battery.
