    Common Daly BMS problems?

    Does anyone know the trick to resetting the AH Capacity in some DALY BMS? Half of mine work fine. Some are fine to 50ah then if you set it higher revert to 33.5ah and other odd figures...

    Cerbo gx relay wiring

    If your using a two wire start system the generator starts when the two wires are shorted together. As such you want to use the Common and NO ports on Relay 1. (The generator controls only work on relay 1 on the Cerbo) NO is the normally open relay contact. As in the circuit is broken until...

    Cerbo gx relay wiring

    Mine runs to a digital controller on the generator so it's only a tiny current. Mine is ~5m run but I would not expect any issues with a 15m or even a 50m run. Jimmy

    Cerbo gx relay wiring

    Hi Fraser, I have one running the auto start on my property off grid backup generator. You need to have a 'two wire' auto start system on your generator to use the Cerbo GX generator relay. Its just a NO relay that closes on command and shorts the wires. The Cerbo GX comes with some press in...

    Epever eBox-01 Bluetooth issues

    I gave up using this after my last post in 2019. I went to load it up and now it won't even connect anymore. Maybe the app is out of date?

    Daly BMS Intermittent Failure

    I binned it in the end. I suspect it had a faulty / loose connection internally. If yours is firing back up by itself it's likely hitting, or thinks it's hitting one of the safety cut offs. Jimmy

    Test Sample Chinese Lifepo4's arrived

    Their response was that the manufacturer just does that with the codes. 😂 That being said those cells have been cycled hard for a year now and I have learnt alot about Lifepo4 so all in all not a bad outcome. Jimmy

    Circuit Breaker / Fuse on larger battery banks

    Hi All, What is everyone using on their larger battery banks? I am building some 15kwh 48v packs for my off grid system with 150a BMS so looking for a 200a fuse / breaker on each bank. There is NH1 style Fuse Disconnects on the current LA battery setup. Are these still the best way or...

    Has anyone used this BMS?

    With all due respect, I am interested in the experience of someone who has used one. FYI Overkill Solar BMS are rebranded JBD BMS which are some of the cheapest on the market. Don't get me wrong I am not knocking Overkill (I have never dealt with them) or JBD BMS (I run a number of them and...

    I caved, just ordered a Batrium for my BMS

    Any updates here? I am looking to pull the trigger on Batrium too. Quality BMS is worth the $ in my opinion. I have a Cerbo GX on order too. Can they talk to each other? Jimmy

    which BMS is better, Daly or JBD?

    I have played with both and the JBD with the Bluetooth is a more functional unit. While others have had a good experience with DALY I have had intermittent failures with two of them. The JBD have been faultless so far. Jimmy

    Best BMS for 16s setup, worry free (low temp not a big deal)

    The Overkill BMS are JBD BMS see attached photo. Wouldn't you just go a native 16s over mucking around with two 8s??

    Best BMS for 16s setup, worry free (low temp not a big deal)

    I am glad you asked Alkaline as I am looking at the same thing at the moment. I am building 3x 16s battery banks for my own use and plan to run them in parallel with separate BMS for maximum redundancy. I am considering: ANT, JBD, DALY and Chargery I have JBD and DALY here in use at the...

    Mate it's been a bloody mess. Their shipping agent delivered the goods to a randoms house in regional Victoria! It sat there for 4 weeks. The resident finally tracked down the supplier and told them about it and it finally made it back to me in Brisbane! They were pretty beat up. The 12v one is...

    Recommendations for Quality BMS for 16s 45kwh Off Grid Build

    While the Covid-19 lockdown here in Queensland has delayed the PV install it gives me a bit more time to finalise the build specs on the rest of the system. I am fairly happy with the rest of the setup but am still deciding on the BMS I am going to use for the battery pack. It needs: - 16s -...

    Just Place new Order on Alibaba- 280AH x 8 for 1260.00 USD Delivered, Grade A to Canada

    They had: Marked terminals Barcode/Serial # scratched off 1 cell was mismatched ~10% Otherwise good cells and great value. They were easy to deal with and sent them superfast in good packaging. But misrepresenting a product like that is a showstopper for me. Jimmy
