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.

Welcome mate. 

I enjoyed your story.  Wink

That's quite the 12 volt system you have there! Look forward to hearing more
                                                Choose LiFe  Wink

                      May all your batteries be fully charged and perfectly balanced  Cool

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
