I have 2x206Ah SOK batteries and a Victron 12/3000 Multiplus II. I need 300A and I only have 200. I don’t need any more Ah so I am considering adding a SOK 100Ah to get to 300A. Is this ok?

Thanks rmaddy. That is a hot topic and after reading all of that, I'm not sure what the answer is. I guess I'll go with a 3rd SOK 206Ah and call it a day.

In my very non-expert opinion, this ^ is the simplest and best solution. Also having more capacity than you need will come in handy on back to back rainy days and will also extend the life of your battery bank (lower depth of discharge = more cycle life).
