Auto level still consumes a lot of energy across every cell bring them down not the low up (would use less energy)
[...] I was thinking that lower capacity packs would bypass more since they would reach higher voltage sooner it would start to bypass. [...]
Try my quickish yet foolproof way to find even the sneakiest of SD cells:'fixing' them
If you're saying that with your multiple strings of batteries, the closest pack has a higher draw... yes, but given your massive cable size the difference would likely be minimal. Would be interesting to see clamp meter readings.#1 cell.. ie Positive closest to the inverter so has the heaviest load
Are you going to just bin them, or test and reuse the cells? I know you have better things to do, but I'd love to see a post-mortem of the cells: capacity drop, rust, SD check, etc.This weekend they are having a retirement party.
