Hi! I think we spoke about these LG batteries a while back. Are you using them in your off-grid storage? JH3

Hoi Emiel, heb jij ondertussen een powerwall gebouwd ? Ik heb ongeveer 2000 - 18650 gekocht en wil nu ook een powerwall gaan bouwen maar kan wel wat info gebruiken m.b.t. welke monitoring en omvormers aan te schaffen ?
