    12v enjoybot 100ah sudden voltage drop to 2.2v?

    I have a 12v 100ah enjoybot battery. After using it for several weeks its voltage was 12.6 today then it dropped to 2v with the multimeter. I'm guessing i ran it empty but even if its empty shouldn't it show more than 2 volts? Everything is tight with the bolts/cables. Or is this normal...

    Newbie Help Please - AC200 MAX, AC300, Delta Pro - or do it yourself?

    Do the plug and play. Unless you want to buy $200 worth of tools and have to wait for parts that you didn’t know u needed, plus days of messaging the group to figure out details. If time is an issue. Don’t do DIY

    How to connect cable to car battery for dc to dc chargers?

    How do I connect my cable to the car battery terminal? A lug doesn’t seem like it will fit under. Is there some type of special connection needed?. I bought the 40amp dc to dc charger.

    How do I connect to these lugs with unremovable washer?

    I bought a battery that has these lugs on it. They have a thinner top section with a washer and lock washer. When I tighten it all the way down it reaches the bottom washer. The washer isn’t removable since the bottom of the lug is thicker. I could put a ring terminal below it but then the...

    I bought this 12v multiple cigarette lighter outlet and need help understanding how to wire it to my 12v battery. I would connect it straight with a fuse between but i wonder if I plug in multiple cigarette lighter plugs then it might go over capacity? How does that work electrical wise? I...

    Yah I can, I doubt I could even get a refund from Ali express at this time because I bought them several months ago. Also interesting to see that Will isn’t endorsing these anymore and advises against buying cells from AliExpress. I think that’s a good call. Hopefully I can buy 1 cell from...

    Merry Christmas! Finished top balancing all cells to 3.65 . I have one cell that loses .001 charge every 10 seconds or so. It now reads 3.604 while other 3 cells read 3.640z. So I’m assuming I need to buy a new cell for replace this one. Is it normal to lose voltage this fast? Is it normal...

    True. Check out fire bomb extinguisher ball. I plan on hanging one over my batteries. But that’s just one level of protection. Need more.

    EcoFlow Delta 1300 Portable Battery Generator, how many solar panels can i hook up to it

    Looks like only 1 according to this pic that shows max amps from solar as 8amps. This panel you show has a max of 7.72 so it’s close enough.

    Oh man you saved my butt. I just attached them and raised it up to the max. For the past 10 min. Hopefully it isn’t damaged. I measured it and it only showed 3.42 on the multimeter while it was connected so hopefully it’s good. I checked them without the connections and they were 3.36. Now...

    Yah you actually helped me on another thread so I’m still working through those solutions. Now I connected the power supply to 8g wires and it won’t push out 3.65v anymore. It was with the alligator clips. Does that mean the wires too thick or the connections bad? Seems tight. Or do the...

    Thank you! And if I add better connections like 8 or 10g wire do I put it inside here where the alligator clips came out of? I’m not sure how to make those connections.

    I originally started top balancing 2 days ago putting batteries In parallel with voltage set at 3.65 and got batteries from 3.2 to 3.3. Also the cells were balanced before starting and now they are not. I thought it was slow so I read more about it and say to start with a 3.4 charge then...
