    Cool Boondocker class C RV

    Thanks man your Obs is sweet too. I forgot to ask about the panels but his entire roof was covered. Being so small I bet his batteries never get below 50%. I was really surprised when he said he had 32 200ah cells.

    Cool Boondocker class C RV

    I was passing through El Paso with my wife and our 3 pups and happened across an RV with solar covering the roof. We also have an RV but I haven't had the chance to put panels or a split unit on it yet. Seeing his Rig was an inspiration so I wanted to share with y'all. He said he had 20kwh of...

    Run mini split off solar

    This video is a good starting point. You probably need at least 16 to 32 280 ah cell to make one or 2 48v batteries. Two all in one controller/inverters. You have to put the two together to get the 230v. Like Will you can buy a bunch of used panels from santan and ground mount them. I lived...

    Where to begin...

    You can buy graphics card and build your own rig problem is prices are extremely high because of demand.

    Just got delivery of my 280AH CATL batteries

    Did you top balance the cells?

    Unboxing of "EVE" 230Ah LFP Cells from Amy Zheng

    I saw a member recently post on here that they're test yielded over 240ah.

    Big Battery 24V inconsistencies

    Seeing as how the reputation is not the best. They probably use bulk commodity cells. Many of us use bulk cells building our own packs. Bulk cells are perfectly fine for most. The problem with buying a finished battery is let's say one of the cells is bad. There's a post on here a guy...

    What is a cycle?

    I'm guessing you'll expire before they do.

    What is a cycle?

    A cycle from my understanding is 100% to zero. For example eve cells say you can cycle 100% for 3,000 cycles and still have 80% capacity. So if you're cycling 90% maybe you'll get 5,000 cycles before capacity depletes to 80%.

    Newbie Alert

    If you buy prismatic cells from China they cost about the same as lead acid. lead acid you can only cycle 50% vs lithium 100% you could build a 300 ah battery for give of take 1k. You're much better off going with the higher voltage like 48v to save money on wire and you can push a lot more...

    Cylindrical vs Prismatic Cells

    How much are bus bars going to cost connecting so many small cells? I think there's some costs you're not factoring in building a pack with the small cells. I would probably go with prismatic simply because they're so easy to deal with. I thought prismatic cells advertised like eve 100%...

    Daly BMS Balancing

    From my understanding the Daly only balances while charging. I own a dumb Daly and it seems to keep my cells perfectly balanced. Maybe you should try charging at lower amps.

    DIY net metering system for under $8,000.00 United states.

    Check out this video Will built this large off-grid setup for I think 10K.

    DIY net metering system for under $8,000.00 United states.

    If it was me I would do an off-grid setup and just run part of your house on off grid. You could buy a split unit ac DIY batteries and some quality equipment for 8k. You can buy a bunch of second hand panels if you've got land for a ground mounted array. Anyways that's what I would do if I...
