The Power File.
#1
Hi  I'm Tom from Oz, (Onlytomboller on Utube)


Firstly my system is not a powerwall!


I call it a Power File. It is 12v or 3s  p ????? As it keeps Growing expain more about that later.


3s mainly cos I have always used 12v.


A bit of my history built my first Solar panel when I was around 12y old a wopping 2.6w 6v. cells from Tandy (Radio Shack) to power my amplifier on my crystal radio that I made the year before and have been hooked on solar ever since. First home solar  1979 using 6x Solar Rex 20w panels( Man they were expensive back then! Actually I think a new car was cheeper!) 2x new 12v 100ah truck lead acide batteries that powered the lights 5w 12v festoon bulbs in those days no leds then and gadgets I built from car parts like washing machine.etc


Any way my system is stand alone and always has been and now is in my shipping container it is 3s 432p x 4 banks. 1 bank per draw total so far of 5184 x 18650 cells and still growing of >2000mah to <2300mah. All housed in 2x old File Cabinets with 2 draws in each. Friends tell me it's enough to build a small bomb  and thats just my work shed.lol.


Power Jack 3000w LF inverter went with it for ease of repair.
System being charged with 10x 200w panels through 5p x EPEVER Tracer 5206LPLI solar charge controlers.  Charge system to be expanded next year.

Great work mate, sorry it's taken so long - but seems you have numbers written on the cells does that mean you've tested all the cells i'll give you a star on the cell counter based on that alone..Pete
