YinLong Lithium Cells FAQ

YinLong Lithium

This is a re-share on a write up previously made regarding these cells. With yinlong cells being so popular I figured it was worth a share again.

1. What can each bank handle?
Each bank is rated for 4,000 watts on music. *All ratings are made with no input amperage*

2. What does each “bank” consist of?
6 cells in series equals 1 12v bank. Each bank can be charged from 13.8 to 16.1 safely.

3. What should I charge these to?
We suggest you running these lithiums at 16.0 or less. Any higher will reduce lifespan.

4. Do I need a balancer for my bank?
I definitely recommend a balancer. However, I break my banks apart every 3 months and let them sit in parallel over a day or 2 to balance back out and do not use a balancer.

5. Can I run these with other batteries?
We suggest running Yinglong without any agms or lead acid batteries installed in line. Agms or other conventional type batteries tend to pull down the lithium and will reduce its output.

6. What type of size and wire should I use with a bank of Yinglongs?
We suggest Atleast 1 2/0 OFC ground correctly installed from this bank to a suitable ground location. More than that is always preferred. CCA wire is not recommended.

7. How do I charge this bank?
We recommend charging your lithium battery with a correct lithium charger. However, many charge these with a regular charger and have no issues.

8. Can I run a bank of Yinglongs with other lithium battieres?
We do not suggest mixing lithium chemistries.

9. Do Yinglong banks run fine with ultracaps?
Yes. Yinglongs run amazing with ultracaps, we’ve tested it and it’s beautiful.

10. When should I balance my yinglong cells?
We recommend balancing before assembly. If not using a balancer, break them apart periodically to balance them all in parallel. However, a active balancer is much easier.

11. How do I connect these cells together to make a bank?
1/4” thick links or thicker are recommended for straps between cells.

12. What are the specs of these Yinglong banks?
These are rated for 10c continuous. 30,000 rate cycle life.

13. What type of battery is this?
Yinglongs are Lithium Titanite, They accept charge much faster than other lithiums on the market, and are extremely safe.

14. Can I run these under the hood?
We do not recommend you run these under the hood, as they do not like heat.

15. Do these like being cold like my AGMs?
No. Lithium actually does not perform as well in the cold. It has to do with the anode and the cathode and how they pass through. They will perform fine in it, just not as strong as they would in 50+ weather.

16. Can these replace a normal car battery?
Yes, these can replace a normal car battery and can start a car no problem.

17. What type of wire should I use with them?
We recommend 1/0 cable minimum. The more the better.

18. How do these make a battery?
6 cells wired in series (each cell having a 2.3 nominal charge) equals 13.8. Once in series, you will have a + on one side and a – on the other end. If the cells are fully charged and they are assembled correctly, you should see around 13.8 resting.

How Does A High Output Alternator Work?

A vehicle comes with a stock alternator from the factory to meet the basic electrical needs of a vehicle. A high output alternator or high amp alternator is a perfect way to upgrade modern vehicles. A modern vehicle is different from traditional vehicle since it can require higher electrical supply for, power windows, modern seats with heating and cooling systems, power gates, ignition systems, compressors, navigation systems and more. A high output alternator provides higher amperage output to a vehicle, improving their performance. This article discusses the different types of high output alternators, their functions, how they work and how to prevent them from going bad. To find out more about high output alternators please read below:

Honda ELD Dual Mode High Output Alternator Charging System Explained

Honda uses a dual-mode charging system on most 1990-2012 applications (figure 3). This system decreases drag on the engine while cranking and reduces charging system output (engine load) for improved fuel economy. Similar to other systems, the PCM controls the alternator. The PCM receives the system voltage and amperage demand from the electronic load detector in the fusebox.

Cranking (Low Output Mode) — during cranking, the PCM will set the output target between 12.4-12.9 volts. This mode will be active when the system meets a given set of criteria, leading the PCM to command the alternator to reduce the charging system output. Don’t misinterpret low output mode as a bad alternator.

Normal Mode — with the engine running and a specific set of criteria met, the PCM will command a target output voltage between 13.5 and 14.9 volts. With the ignition switch on, the alternator should receive a signal on the IG circuit greater than 12 volts, which it uses to activate the alternator.

Why do you need a High Output Alternator?

JS Alternator Alternator

High Output Alternators provide the current you’ll need for LOUD car audio
To avoid the dreaded red light of despair in the suddenly silent night, you will need to upgrade your electrical charging system. High Output Alternators provide amperage that your stock alternator cannot produce.

If the Big Three Wiring Upgrade failed to alleviate your electrical issues in your car or truck, then upgrading the alternator might be your next step toward a high performing car audio system.

Did increasing the current flow through the system solve problems like headlight dimming or did it make them worse?

This is because your amplifier is trying to draw more amperage than your stock electrical system can create.

Boosting the flow of current in the vehicle will only increase the problem if the charging system can’t keep up.
This means your headlight dimming could worsen after upgrading your electrical charging systems wiring. That is if the alternator cannot supply adequate power for both your cars electrical charging system and stereo.
