Rando gave a really good description on what controllers are capable of what...and what their relative efficiency is at gleaning power.


Here is the deal...you have a '16 Fleet, right?  I have a '16 Hawk...our Zamp ZS30 controllers should be identical...


The Specs above I also have in a copy of a Zamp controller manual but they are not for my vintage ['16] Zamp controller...I have the '16 version of the manual and LiFePo4 or LTO are not mentioned....


Simple way to find out what battery types your controller is programed for....push the button "Battery Type" on the face of your controller and it will show you what battery types it is programed for...


Either way like Rando said your controller will handle LiFePo4 with an AGM profile...I assume that the LiFePo4 specific profile would be more accurate in matching the Li specs but I guess the difference is not a significant issue..



Phil...yes, Rando's info helpful as well as yours...will be checking the "Battery Type" setting soon...if the Li setting is there, good to go,..if not, an alternate setting should be ok for the Li battery when we get one...


Curious to see if my version is the older or newer ... and guess what, I  just pulled my owner's book out and checked my "official manufacture date" again-- ha ha,..it was January, 2017 (not 2016)...purchased in late 2016 but took delivery on a 2017 dated model...sooo, I more than like may have the "newer" controller that includes the Li setting... stay tuned...
