    Greeting from down under. If you are seeking a local supplier, maybe check out @CarelHassink as he may still have access to LEV50 in Europe. Hope that helps (y)

    LEV50 BMS Suggestions

    Greetings, Been a while since posting. I want to use 2 x LEV50 cells to power an outdoor project, and want to use a BMS to manage the cell charging via a solar panel. Each LEV50 cell is about 3.75 volts, so the combined serial voltage will be around 8 volts. A BMS like Batrium is overkill for 2...

    Importing EV batteries into Australia

    I have imported several Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Mitsubishi MiEV battery packs, both LEV50N and LEV40 Lithium Ion batteries. I also have access to Tesla battery packs, but am yet to find a client looking to purchase. Personally I would recommend you look seriously when thinking about...

    Hiya DO, great to hear from you, and thanks for checking in. I have been in Europe for 3 months, so the project has been placed on hold. Have met Carel in the Netherlands which was awesome, have a trial BMS board, so when we are back will resume the project. Have also taken the opportunity to...

    Solar Inverter Monitoring Applications

    Hi Redpacket, I have been tardy in replying. Thanks for the reply, however I had hoped there might an android app available. My wife only does android tablet, and I think I'd get one of those 'are you serious' looks if I suggested she use a Raspberry Pi... :P But I will look at the...

    Home Data Center Powerwall Build

    Hi Carel, Great to hear from you, and appreciate the update on SIMPbms. Based on the battery design above, do you think SIMPbms would be a viable option, and can the Mitsubishi BMS cards be used in the 14S setup, or should I consider another cell layout i.e. should I leave the cell layoutas...

    Home Data Center Powerwall Build

    Hi Redpacket, Geek, and Sean. Thank you for the feedback, really appreciate you making the time. The LEV50 cells come from the save EV as suggested by Sean, and each of the packs of 4 cells will be together as they were from the original manufacturer. I am not locked into the BMS design, as it...

    Home Data Center Powerwall Build

    Finally managed to brain dump my initial thinking on my LEV50 cell configuration and how that might interconnect with a Batrium BMS using BlockMonM8 units. This just early thinking, so open to other ideas and feedback. The diagram below is a 14S configuration, with groups of 4 LEV50 cells. Each...

    The ART of Tool Storage

    I was inspired by Adam Savage's 'first order tool retrieve-ability' to create a basic work benchtool storage unit. Developed the basic design and put it together from some scrap wood, which looked pretty dull but was practical and would do the job. I asked myfour year old daughterwhat she...

    Home Data Center Powerwall Build

    Finally found time to create my prototype LEV50Nbattery storage shelves. Looked at a a number of ideas and decided to go with a self-made aluminium setup. More time consuming, but I just couldn't find anything off the shelf that was easier and could beat the cost of the raw aluminium...

I have an existing SolarMax grid tied inverter, and I've always used the MaxMonitoring App on my phone and tablet to monitor the statistics of the inverter. It appears the folks at SolarMaxare retiring the MaxMonitoring app...
