Our opinion on this was and is that while the Sierra06-0982Y3 is listed on
the site as being 150-300, it is capable of working from 130-400 in their
docs. We recommend it for applications starting at 144 V because people who
are making the investment in the parts for a higher voltage vehicle are
likely to try and add additional battery capacity in the future. While it
may be a bit less efficient in the short run, the unit gives people plenty
of overhead to reconfigure their traction pack in the future.
