Agreed about not absolutely necessary for LFP but why buy this when you can buy a Victron smart shunt for $130 which has it?I checked on mine, and I can't set a peukert component anywere. So for now, it looks like the peukert component can't be set. For LFP that's not a big deal (since the peukert is almost 1), but it does make sense if you're willing to use it on a lead-acid bank with high loads
@kang lee can we configure peukert in the settings?
Which is super important...with a heavy load from an inverter with lead acid batteries, your capacity could be half of what the meter is indicating.I'm guessing from my understanding that peukert only affects the capacity indication of the battery and not the usage stats?
Sorry, we haven't considered Peukert yet, but we are willing to study it.Yes but what happens when the current draw is high when you use an inverter? The Victron battery monitor takes into account Peukert's constant and allows you to set it based on battery type...does yours?
Thanks just placed an order19KQUV2H6S9R

Read basic machine information
Awesome - THANK YOU! Place an order for one of these.
The $250 for a victron one just wasn't clicking with me.
At this point I don't know if I will ever do a full review of the monitor.... so here is the info on the Shunt mount.it took a few minutes to figure out how it is intended to be physically mounted) If I get a new unit, I will be sure to describe the mounting in the review
Sorry for the trouble!The remaining components in the package look unscathed but don't do me much good without the damaged components.

* The 500A 75mv shunt looks like a quality unit. (However, it took a few minutes to figure out how it is intended to be physically mounted) If I get a new unit, I will be sure to describe the mounting in the review)
* The cable that runs between the shunt and the control box is only about 7". This is probably not a problem for most installs, but be aware.
* The cable for an external relay is only ~ 7.5". This is only needed if an external relay is to be used for low voltage disconnect (?) Most installs would probably not use this function, but if they do, the cable will probably need to be replaced or extended.
* The cable for the thermal couple is 39" (~1M).
* The cable that goes between the main control box and the display is ~116" long (3M)
* There is a 20' piece of 2 conductor wire that is presumably used for hooking up the power. Nice touch.
* There are two large copper lugs. This is a nice touch but I would never use that type of crimp lug.
* There is a small wrench and a small screwdriver shipped with the unit. I appreciate the gesture but the wrench is too small to properly tighten the bolts. (Anyone ordering this unit almost certainly already has better versions of both the wrench and the screwdriver)
