I've finally got the ball rolling on my own power wall, although it's based ina commercial UPS rack so power rack is more suiting.

So far:
5kw PV setup with Micro inverters
Solax Hybrid 100amp inverter/charger for integration of the power rack to house supply.

400-500 18650 cells so far. Ave Capacity of 2500mah

Safety is important on this install I amdouble fusing cells, ashunt trip for BMS and another forenvironmental monitoring, rack earth bonding, cell coolingandroom ventilation areall planned.

Looking for other Kiwis and places to get cells from :)

PS where has your cell supply come from thus far? I have a free supply of cells that comes in at around 100 good cells a month. I am experimenting with supplimenting it to boost the speed of cell gathering by purchasing a bunch of battery packs from a computer shop for $6 a kg. will let you know how that turns out.

PS where did you get your rack from?

I am planning to build mine from custom wood and ply left over from our house build. my mantra for this project is SAFE, CLEAN and CHEAP.

txt me if you want to have a chat sometime 021540407

Are you still using this setup? Curious about which BMS can talk to the Solax inverter...
