    $450AUD 100Ah Access LifePo4 On ebay Australia. Any one tried them?

    They look very interesting, I might buy one for my 12v fridge for when i go camping if you give a good recommendation. Ive recently gone off grid and bought some Solar King batteries but like the idea af being repairable and a metal case.

    Victron EasySolar

    So after much googleing i have found what seems to be the answer to my question. The mc4 connections all join to common bus bars inside the unit so connecting to them is joining in parallel.

I hooked up the 3, 250w/37v 8.25amp(i think) panels that i had on my 12v system, they were in parallel so the results were pretty average so i connected them in series and got a lot better...
