  • Post in thread: Isn't a 3000W inverter on 12V really pushing it as far as current?

    Because the market demand for 12V inverters is higher than that for 24V inverters
  • Post in thread: Question about power discharging too quickly

    I agree with Michaelk, you'd better add another 100Ah battery at least.And charger your battery to 14.5-15V , and use the shortest cable between inverter and battery,in order to save the battery voltage lost on the cables.

  • Post in thread: Yet another inverter question

    Usually,small inverter no load current is smaller than bigger inverter,for example,1000W pure sine wave inverter noload current is about 0.5A, but 2000W pure sine wave inverter no load current is about 1.5-2.5A.So if your appliance is small, you can change another 1000W pure sine wave inverter
  • Post in thread: fuse repair

    Pull out the fuse with pliers. Look at the picture. if the bridge in the fuse is broken,means the fuse burn,then please replace them with same size,and try again. Do not take PCB out from the inverter,because it is hard to install PCB well again
  • Post in thread: fuse repair

    In general, the fuse holder is soldered to the circuit board, and then the fuse is inserted on the holder. When we change the fuse, we only need to pull out the fuse without taking out the holder
  • Post in thread: Is 600W pure sine wave inverter enough for the mini refrigerator?

    It is said that the materials have increased a lot in the past two years, and the sea freight has also increased a lot. The prices of many commodities in our nearby supermarkets have increased. So I'm looking forward to the inverter promotion next week.
  • Post in thread: Hi floating system voltage when BMS disconnects battery - what to do?

    JHovel ,I understand what trouble you are meeting. When the battery full charge to 14.4V, your battery goes to protection automatically and does output any DC .We suggest you to set your charger controller less than 14V , Do not trigger the battery protection system. Will you use a DC fridge?
  • Post in thread: Float LiFePO4 or not??

    The better stop floating charge, or plug a high power electrical device to your inverter,such as fridge.Because its draw current is faster than the floating charger , the battery will not go to protection
  • Post in thread: Automatic Transfer Switches

    For the 2000W inverter system, you can add a 20A-25A transfer switch. Maybe you can install a 2000W pure sine wave inverter with 20A transfer,such as AIMS Power PWRIX200012SUL 2000 Watt Pure Sine Inverter with Transfer Switch 12 VDC to 120 VAC ETL Listed

  • Post in thread: T-Fuse and Battery cut off switch warm/hot

    Obviously, when you use high-power appliance,such as your said 14500btu Furrion AC,the cables will be hot,because the current is high. When you use low-power appliances, the cables will not heat up. If you are worried, I suggest you change a pair of thicker cables
  • Post in thread: Inverter powers off (input overvoltage) BMS guilty or....?

    There is a BMS in Lifepo4 battery, for your 24V battery, once its voltage is more than 28V, the battery will be in protection and stop dc output, then the inverter will be in high voltage protection, now please disconnect your battery from charger or solar panel,the inverter will work...

  • Post in thread: LiFePo4 12v 100ah x2 in parallel fuse size?

    If you are asking the fuse between battery and inverter,for your 1000W inverter,its max current is 100A,so I suggest you to install a 100A fuse between inverter and battery, and install the fuse in the middle of positive cable ( red one).
  • Post in thread: Using two aims remotehf remote switches via rj9 splitter?

    You can spend a few dollars to buy this kind of splitter, and plug your current remote control into two interfaces respectively. If you can control the inverter, it shows that it is feasible. If you can't control the inverter, throw away the splitter and only lose a few dollars.
