      I'm 99.999% certain it was the fuse. The 0.001% I'll leave up to you. I will only add, if you don't think you need Class T fuses for...

      Yes, the fuse is to blame for the fire. The cause of the fuse failing is most like due to a cell shorting internally. Follow along with...

      One big difference between your setup and the OP is he was working at 48v verse 12v. Doing the math - each battery has internal...

      I totally disagree. The Cells have a negative and a positive. If the negatives are not connected because of the BMS's disconnecting...

      @Zwy thanks for sharing your knowledge. After going through the explanations of the Batrium and Blockmon, I am still confused. I guess I...

      Almost every page of that document warns against running multiple strings in parallel without taking specific safety measures to be able...

      The only answer that makes sense to me is that one of his LFP banks had a defective Cell. The result would be that all of the other LFP...

      I guess for my own ability to be able to sleep and not be concerned about the LFP Cells catching the house on fire, I would hope to...

      The official report from the fire inspector was not an issue with the Cells catching fire but it was the fuse arcing that created the...

      My apologies it should read a metal shelf, not a metal box. I will edit it.

      This is my summary of the fire. The Cells are arranged in 16s x 6 with fuses between each bank. After the fuses the banks are then...

      I sympathize with you. Your build looked to be a professional build looking at your previous post. When fuses blow, then there is a...

      WindWizard replied to the thread what to do.

      I upgraded mine to Victron and it was one of the best decisions. I love the bluetooth and they do not have the noisy fan. In fact I am...

      That is exactly what I thought when I purchased a flexible dryer hose. I put a match to it and it burst into flames. I replaced my dryer...

      The dielectric grease will prevent it. Undo all of your connections and clean them up. Apply the dielectric grease to the exterior...
