How to treat this victron 12.8v battery

20210210-185852.jpgI have come across a 12.8v lithium 60ah battery,

it don't say smart or super on the front just 'lithium 12.8v -60 ah

Charging temp -25 to 50c


It has no bms leads (but has black dits were they are on the new lithium smart batterys)

This is an old victim 12.8v lithium battery. It has obviously some sort of bus inside it but I can't find out its max charge / discharge (or even a manual)

(Would post a photo if I could) it looks like a smart lipo4 but it don't have Bluetooth, and there is no bms leads (but wear the new batteries have the bms leads this just has black plastic moulded in its place.

P.n is Bat512600500

S/n Hq1345jwccn

Lable on the back says victim liFePO4 BATTERY 12.8V/60AH-CB

768 wh

(Apologies if I come across rude I much prefer to talk over a conversation and my spelling probably apauling) :)

Updated to add a photo :)

This is a lithium battery without any BMS. It was sold for a very short period of time (6 or 7 years ago).

I would not recommend to use it.

I was able to find an old datasheet:

datasheet-12-8-volt-lithium-iron-phosphate-batteries-en.pdf

You Sir are a diamond, !

I'm not new to batteries, but without the data sheets was not sure what to do with this, (to be honest I'll weigh up the cost for a custom bus,)

Thank you just feel daft i couldn't find the information myself,
