I owe a CAT S61 with integrated IR Cam, in fact this was the reason to get the phone in 2018.
Because I wanted to control my Powerwall setup and cabeling and see issues as fast as possible. And therfore it is doing it's job perfectly.
It is not the fastes one, and it's not compareable...
OK, thanks guys.
that gives me a little bit more hope, that our batteries will also be recyled for reuse one day.
But it will take time to have that available everywhere and also to be cheaper then mining.
Never the less it is the right track.
@hbpowerwall: Yes my company also has such a drum...
first I wish a happy and healty new year to everybody.
Did anyone of you Powerwall builders think about the day, when your Powerwall hits end of life?
What plans do you have for old cells that are not useable anymore?
Last month for the first time I gave my useless cells to the urban...
No, I have a working solution to extract the cells, but it's a whole lot of work :
and I would like to save this time and work.
Another Idea I have is to only use 7s of this 10s Blocks and combine 2 Blocks to 14S 48V.
I already build a...
for your input.
Of all the e-Bike batteries I got, minor were bad, mostly the BMS.
Just now, from 15 tested, some were over 3 V completely, some were 0 Volt,
but I was able to reload them, on one Block 4 Cells didn't take any Power.
So in general they are very good quality...
I don't want to rearange my whole system, all my Pannels are and future ones will be connected to my two PIPs.
So the 36V Bank should just be added to the system.
It's ok for me to buy a bms and DC converter every time I add new 5-6 Battery blocks to my System, that is still less work then...
I have 2 PIP5058 that I planned to cascade for the 48V system.
But as the main source now are 36V 10S e-bike batteries I didn't want to take these apart any more,
because that always destroise some of them and aditionally makes a lot of work afterwards.
20% loss is not a problem, because...
ChrisD gave me a hint last year how he combined a 36V Battery to the 48V Main Battery System.
The short description is using a dc stepup module for loading the 48V Battery with the 36V one.
I thought about it and wonder how to load that 36V battery again.
I don't think that connection a...
Good Evening Gentlemen,
after a long time now yesterday I finally had some progress with my Powerwall.
Before I had to pimp my shed a little bid:
I widened the doors, to be able to access each package in the shed and added a sixth layer to the shelf,
so I can upgrade each bank 2 times...
sorry for my late response. Projects on the job are really taking very much time.
At the moment I'm not sure how the temperature will develop in the new shed next Winter.
Last Winter the temperature in Shed 1 was on some days to low for working inside, although it's isolated with 6cm...
a little update from my side:
I added a seperate shed to the back of my existing one to put all batteries in, because the first shed is finally getting to small.
My 2nd Bank of 840 cells is nearly ready to be installed, so I will have two seperate banks 4kWh for to start...
