    Thank you, would you recommend getting single 400A battery? I got the Samlex becase of the dimensions, Victron would not fit my space.

    Victron Phoenix Inverter 12V 1200VA 120v with induction cook top

    Yes I agree as well, I do not want to wait for hot water forever. I will go with 2000w inverter, still leaning towards Renogy thanks to the form factor and definitely 1800w induction cooktop. The guy in video is using NuWave induction cooktop that few people on Ford Transit forum use even with...

    Victron Phoenix Inverter 12V 1200VA 120v with induction cook top

    Thank you all for your imputs. I guess I will go with 2000w. Victron Multiplus is nice unite but it is just too big. I guess I am going to try Renogy 2000w, unless you guys think there is better option in small form factor. Thanks

    CATL 302 damaged

    I just test it and you are correct it does carry positive voltage. Well the scratch is small not sure if I wanna talk to 18650 again about it. I will be using epoxy boards between the cells or I can get heat shrink wrap and install it over the cell. I will decide once I see the new cell...

    Best 280-304 to buy right now?

    I am in the same situation. Either go with Docan or 18650. I also have one more option to buy from srikobatteries.com in person since I am in IL, just not sure what to look for besides bloating and perhaps test the voltage. Sriko currently have EVE 300ah and Lishen 272ah. Sriko informed me that...

    Slimline battery case: DIY or prefab available?

    This is exactly what I would like to achieve. You can use blade cells from Big Battery. I would prefer to diy my battery to get 300 ah capacity. Just trying to figure out how to prevent swelling of the cells. I think I will use 80/20 and plywood to build my battery box.
