    Hello from North Wales

    Hi Richard Im massively regretting selling my 1959 beetle! Would have made an awesome EV and Thats 100% what I would be doing right now if I still had it! So its complicated using Lithium packs as your probably going to try the easiest method in your camper usingbattery to battery charging as...

    Capacity Testing Station

    Cheers dude Great Price to and 59p to deliver within 3 weeks! Ordering 2! What I might do then is create a charging station with these power suppliesto cut the charge times down in that case! makes it easier :)

    Capacity Testing Station

    Well thats part of my problem is I can get say the Opus chargers but delivery is 6-8 weeks and the unit is 35 from china which is no guarantee they are genuine! The link above to nkon is great, hadn't come across this but by the time you add postage and Tax im up to 50 :(I watch a review...

    Capacity Testing Station

    Hi There So jumping on the back of a previous post I'm currently going through the painful process of charging and discharging my ever growing stock of batteries. Im about 300 cells into my 1500 cell stock at current. I may have just secured 1500 more which means im going to be doing this for...

    Charging check

    Hey Daromer I was wondering if my expectation of 1A (60A in total) would be seen as acceptable! I am charging all cells to 4.2v pre-install and will probably maintain the charge to around 57v at 45A until Batrium has been brought and installed! Again I am all about the planning at the moment...

    Charging check

    Hi everyone! Back again!! so new quick question for you!! Charging a 14s60p pack what would you consider a safe charge? I think I should be charging to 58.8v so each series is charged to 4.2v but when deciding on Amps what would you guys recommend? :D

    In need of ideas

    Dude love that idea and completely forgot about the hot swap style connectors I could utilise!! What would you suggest in ways of linking them together? Cable?? Going to see if I can find those connectors now!!

    In need of ideas

    So I have a 48u server rack. 10x 1u Shelves, Batteries take 2u and my idea is to add 10x 1u fan trays. In effort to keep things tidy and allow for periodic maintenance on the battery packs I am trying to think of a good way to wire these packs in parallel. I.e. be able to isolate on each shelve...

    Solar Panels

    Thanks to both of you! Never come across either of these links! I did notice a mistake to my above post though. Schneider's documentation was a little sneaky. They one page had the use of a mppt 80-600 but when stepping up to a larger array replaced the controller with a Conext CL which looking...

    Solar Panels

    Batteries would be hanging off a Conext XW+ well actually batteries will be spilt into banks hanging of a multi conext xw+ setup so they will be safe! I have been reading but to be honest even big name companies turn fuzzy once you say your going big with how to construct your arrays and...

    Solar Panels

    Just want to add, been reading schneider technical documents and I should be using the words arrays and clusters which to most of you guys probably would help out understand what I have said above hahahaha so: 120 panels divided into 40 panel arrays, total of 3 arrays 10s4p (580v, 22.8A...

    Solar Panels

    Hi guys Yes I am honestly being serious. I am building a home for life, its off grid so investing the money in solar and batteries hahah Also 120 Panels is where I hope to be in 18months time! Im looking at potentially increasing in the future. I was thinking high voltage to lower the amps...

    Solar Panels

    Hey there So I'm stuck pondering this..... how to wire up my solar. I have 120 Panasonic hit 330 panels to cable up. Now I don't know what controllers to use with this setup and I can't decide on what series and parallel with the panels. I have seen Schneider mppt 80-600 controllers but...
