Hello from South Africa
#1
Hi there,

After stumbling onto the HBPowerwall channel in the beginning of July 2019, I just knew I had to have my own powerwall. After spending almost a week trying to source some batteries while binge-watching the HBPowerwall videos, I paid through my nose for the 1st 20 (to see what's its all about), paid a bit less for the next 200 and then hit the jackpot on 1400 Dell/HP/Toshiba/Acer batteries at e-waste pricing.  

Just finished my 32/20 battery charging station but hit a bit of a road block on some 'hot' red Sanyo cells.


Seem to be making progress otherwise..

Regards
