    Seeing Growatt Website Issues http://server-us.growatt.com/index

    Anyone else still having problem with the Growatt site energy trend chart showing yesterday's graph? I emailed them about this still not working (for me at least). They only responded with "thanks for feedback". Also mentioned to them that users would like to see a battery voltage graphic on...

    Help with identifying Bluetooth module connector-JBD/Overkill BMS type

    I'm looking for a source for the end connectors that are on the cable for JBD/Overill BMS Bluetooth module. Any info would be appreciated. Also the wire gauge of the cable. I'd like to extend the cable or make my own longer cable. Thanks!

    ~100kwh for 24/7 off grid home

    Will be interesting to see the effects of prolonged exposure to elements...snow/ice/rain/humidity/cold/heat//UV/wind/etc. Please keep us updated on that aspect. Very cool project.

    ~100kwh for 24/7 off grid home

    I mean an out-building enclosure for those blue enclosures. Nevermind though. He's set on leaving them exposed.

    48V battery - top balance cells in two batches?

    If I were to do the copper wire method of connecting/balancing cells, I'd probably use a length of ground wire from a romex cable instead of the way the guy in the video twisted that smaller wire. Also, I'd cover the positive terminals with something when connecting the negatives and vice...

    48V battery - top balance cells in two batches?

    Late probably, but you mentioned in the OP you broke the set into 2 batches due to not having enough bus bars. Watch how this guy does it...

    Growatt 3kw wiring question

    speaking of "the first outlet"... When locating first outlet in a circuit (to change to fault-protected type, etc), I thought this video shows an interesting method (starting at about 5min in)... But then, rather than buying such an expensive device as that Ideal circuit analyzer, I thought...
