  1. My Home Hybrid

    Installed a 72 cell watering system last week. Actually installed as 3 x 24 cell. Should have done it ages ago. Beyond a mission topping and checking the whole bank.
  2. i3 Rex bought.

    Drove the BMW i3 to Joburg this weekend. Our return drive today may be of interest as is was without stops bar 2 petrol stops for the range extender. Routed via Standerton, Volksrust and Vryheid to Eshowe - 560km. Left Fourways with full battery and range extender tank. Drove at regulation max speed whole way. Needed a total of 21 litres petrol (including fill once home) and arrived in with the battery at 15% ie 3.75l/100km. There was no recharging on route.

  7. My business grid-tie Installation

    Records can be good and bad. Sunday last, 14th May, Eshowe experienced huge storms including 141mm of rain. And a first for my business system, the 60 panels created zero generation. First time in nearly 2 years. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  8. What are the best batteries for off grid solar

    Yes, mine monitors temp and backs off the current however the batteries still will heat up just slower and to a lower temp compensated voltage. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. What are the best batteries for off grid solar

    My batteries have been as high as 36°c in summer. A hot day is only part of the reason, the temp gain while they are being bulk (absorption) charged amounts to several degrees. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Just topped up my 24 × Trojans. 72 cells. Took a while. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  11. Axpert Low Voltage Warning Error

    For a 5kva inverter is a 300Ah bank maybe a bit small and been pushed a bit hard hence a cell failure? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  12. Batteries

    Catching up on this thread -- when talking Trojan 105's must not confuse with the T 105-RE's which are not golf cart batteries but for static installation Renewable Energy use hence the RE. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  13. Batteries

    As per picture sync'd to the grid that is at 241v while house sits on a stable 230v come what may. Currently in self consumption mode for overnight. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  14. Batteries

    However in rural municipality areas our outages are frequent and with poor quality ie dips etc there was no doubt that I wanted batteries and the ability to continue as if nothing has happened. Once you realise you need batteries then you have no choice but to get the biggest bank you can stretch to to ensure longevity. With whole house on an inverter risks to electronic equipment reduce drastically. That value is difficult to quantify. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  15. What would a watering kit for the T105RE's cost? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
