Why are certain Lithium Ion batteries NOT supported out of the box on the Conext SW/XW+?

Lithium Ion batteries which are NOT direct replacements for lead acid replacements are NOT supported out of the box.

These normal Lithium Ion batteries require constant current and constant voltage for 4 hours. Our Conext SW/XW+ battery based inverter/chargers use 2 or 3 stage charging.
The first stage of charging applies constant current and varying voltage and second stage of charging applies constant voltage and varying current. The Conext SW/XW+ battery based/inverter charger's
2 and 3 stage charging cycle is thus not compatible with the normal Lithium Ion battery charging profile and requirements.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Conext Battery Monitor is not suitable for Lithium Ion batteries as noted in the installation manual
