In this part one video, my first look and a quick test of an interesting 12V 300Ah lithium battery from a company called SFK (SunFunKits). Don’t let the funny name fool you. This is a sweet looking, well-put-together battery made in the USA. It has more features than I’ve ever encountered in all my battery reviews.

I’m sure any DIY geek will love this battery, but it’s also easy to use for anyone. Both the user manual and app are top-notch, very informative. Stay tuned for more videos coming in the future as I use and test out this cool new battery.

Pt. 2 – App Features & Capacity Benchmark Test

In part two of my SFK 300Ah lithium battery review, we look at its companion app in-depth. The battery app is so full-featured that it demands its own video. One of the coolest features is built-in cell capacity benchmarking. So, I gave that a test with a 600-watt space heater load. Then, I uploaded the results to the SFK website so they could be viewed.

Part 3 Teardown – SFK 300Ah Review

In part three of my review, I disassemble the HP-Sk300 battery and give you a close-up look at the build quality, BMS board (Battery Management System), Heating Pads, and Prismatic Lithium (LiFePO4) cells. The cells turn out to be EVE Model LF304-V2. Overall, I’m happy with the construction, attention to detail,  ease of disassembly, and case design. It’s an extremely DIY-friendly battery.
