FM60 perhaps?

What specific LiFePO4 battery model or cell configuration is being used?

FM40 is an European product.
Most of us here use US products.

Well look at that! All compact and euro-looking!

FM40 looks like it would be right at home with a 12V "drop-in replacement" lithium battery. There's plenty vendors offering quality 12V batteries.

Specifies 24V operation as well. Specs only show 12V parameters. (24V = x2 I guess.)

The battery should be rated for charging at 40A, the full output of charge current from the FM40.

The FM40 User Settings will configure for lithium charging. The values will come from manufacturers specifications.
