Where Did You Find Us?
Hi everybody;
I found this site when looking (on Google) for user reviews on used Valence U1-12RT LiFePO batteries, which I am considering purchasing. I'm planning on building an off-grid solar-powered retirement house in the rural Philippines, which is notorious for power disruptions. Building a reliable, safe battery bank is essential to my plans so I'm trying to learn as much as possible about solar system design and battery storage, before jumping in with both feet.

New LiFePO batteries are pretty expensive so I'm currently exploring the pros and cons of (lightly) used ones. Am hopeful to learn from the experiences of other green-minded solar power users/builders on this forum.

Thanks in advance for your advice and recommendations. Feel free to ask any questions.

So thanks HBPowerwall - I see your one of the gurus here too - cheers., I'm from west oz and have been doing ewaste and have about 350 18650s that I've collected and just started the initial charging/testing - going to have to get a few more of these Lii-500s as doing 4 at a time sucks! Lol
