    EPever IPower Plus Inverter- any good?

    @Aphers Thanks for the info & tips re: the induction hob! I think I found it: and boy, am I impressed! Less than 10 seconds to boil a quarter-pan or so of water seems incredibly fast (that is, presuming the video wasn't accelerated or something). That would make it much more efficient than I...

    Prevent the damage on the solar charge Controller

    And here's their reply: So, according to EPEver, there's a low risk of damaging their controller (at least the Tracer3210AN model), and they will void the warranty if done on purpose (@Will Prowse , looks like they are on to you! :)) but keep honoring it in case of a blown fuse mishap.

    Trying to destory my SCC's: I can't do it!

    Wow, @Will Prowse! Amazing, thank you very much for testing this and then sharing the result with us! Just one question: can you please tell what EPEver model(s) you tested? I would very much like to be sure my EPEver/EPSolar Tracer3210AN (or some other model in the same XX10AN series) was...

    Prevent the damage on the solar charge Controller

    I just sent this in an email to EPEver/EPSolar support regarding my Tracer3210AN solar charge controller: If/when I receive a response from them, I will post it here. Cheers, -- Durval.

    EPever IPower Plus Inverter- any good?

    Hello @Aphers, I have purchased the original EPEver/EPsolar cable and it worked without issue. But I also connected a Raspberry Pi directly to my EPEver, and for this I made my own custom RS485 cable using this. It's a common part you can find almost everywhere, and apart from a RJ45 cable (to...

    EPever IPower Plus Inverter- any good?

    Hello @Aphers, just an update: my vendor offered me a really really good price for swapping the Phoenix Smart for the equivalent Multiplus Compact, *and* they offered to bench-assemble everything so I could test it to my satisfaction before plunking down the money, so I took them on their offer...

    Pylontech RV12100: questions on charging parameters

    Hello everyone, So, I'm installing a new battery bank in my motorhome, and opted for Pylontech RV12100 batteries. These are supposed to be 12V 100Ah LiFePO4 "drop-in replacements" for SLA batteries specific for deep-cycle, mobile (boat, RV) applications. I bought 3 of them and have them...

    EPever IPower Plus Inverter- any good?

    Hi @Aphers, how is the EPEver working out for you? I have my eyes on its younger brother (the 2000W model) but it's difficult to find reliable information online, it seems all people talk can about is Victron... :) I'm specially interested in how the EPEver works re: peak loads -- datasheet...

    Is EPEVER MPPT solar charge controller capable of low temp shut off?

    Hello everyone, I have an EPEver TraceRT3210AN V01.55+V01.22 bought about 1 year ago, and I have never had to test it (no freezing temps around here) but it does have low-temp charging cutoff: it's both described in the manual and accessible/settable on the EPever configuration software.
