    Re: Lithium 12Ah on a gate motor

    Yeah I had to cut some plastic to make space for the battery ;D. The 7ah couldn't last the 2.5 hrs of loadshedding despite the battery being less than a 1.5 year old, hence the upgrade.

    Those who have installed 11Ah batteries either on gate motors or electric fence energizer please advise how you installed the battery because it doesn't fit in the enclosures.

    Re: Lithium 12Ah on a gate motor

    Another option is to run these batteries in parallel and use one Victron charger. Is it feasible to use one battery for both electric fence energizer and gate motor?
