    What are the go to Solar Panels?

    I'm slightly constrained. It will be a ground mounted system. I don't have a huge yard, only enough for maybe 6 panels More panels, less yard space, so I'll have to find a balance.

    What are the go to Solar Panels?

    First off I'm in Vermont. I'm trying to start an off grid system. I want to start with 2 panels, a Victron MPPT Controller, and then expand depending on how well it works out Thoughts on the best panels? Looking for efficiency, and obviously somewhat reasonable prices. I want to start with...

    12V Lithium Cells for Boat Battery?

    Ended up buying a ChargeX 100ah battery for $950. It's overkill, but the lifetime warranty is nice, and I'll be dual purposing this as my house battery backup battery, and will be the starting/deep cycle battery for the boat.

    DIY 12V Lifepo4 Starting Battery?

    It's an 1989 Evinrude 40hp 2 stroke. I can't confirm the cranking amps though, but I can't imagine a ton compared to others I guess Yeah 60ah 800cca sounds perfect if I can find one for a reasonable price.

    DIY 12V Lifepo4 Starting Battery?

    Bump. The only battery I see that's rated for starting outboards, is an Ionic 100ah. Anyway to build one myself for a lot cheaper? Is it the BMS or propietary cells that's preventing me from doing this myself? Looking for 80-100ah.

    DIY 12V Lifepo4 Starting Battery?

    Looking to try to build a battery pack for my bass boat. I'll need about 100ah I believe total. It's an 89 40hp Evinrude. I was looking at the battleborn batteries, and they're rated to about 200a max discharge. What cells and BMS should I be looking at for this project? Most batteries are...

    12V Lithium Cells for Boat Battery?

    Any recommendations for 12v 100ah cells? I'm looking to dual purpose these for my boat (both engine starting and trolling motor) and I would also like to use this same battery for a battery backup solution for my house, when used with a pure sine wave inverter in the winter time. That's kind...
