I'm guessing from my understanding that peukert only affects the capacity indication of the battery and not the usage stats?

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?
Agreed about not absolutely necessary for LFP but why buy this when you can buy a Victron smart shunt for $130 which has it?

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.

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?
Sorry, we haven't considered Peukert yet, but we are willing to study it.
