Lots of Interest in Lithium Battery upgrades on this forum, and specifically LiFePO4 type.

It’s a good article but I am finding it heavy going, having to keep going back for a bit more :)

It is. He could have done with a bit of a summary of "do's and don'ts" and some key points. That would be handy.

Interesting article, but it's a pity he repeats himself so many times.
In summary, I think the message is "not yet"
The article could definately have done with a summary, but good to see decent info published nevertheless.

I would say that the "not yet" conclusion you read as the general summary is right. For the wider recreational use where people want to just be able to use something without worrying, LiFePO4 - or at least the supporting systems required - is not quite there.
But for the early adopters/inovators willing to keep an eye on their setups, there are definate advantages ...
