Cycling batteries when not in use?

Recommended Posts

I have an off grid cottage that I use once or twice a month.  12x255W Enersol panels (4 strings x3), 8x260 Omnipower Batteries and a Axpert 5kVA Inverter

When I'm not there, should I switch off the AC Mains, or should I leave a fridge or similar running to keep up a little cycling of the batteries? The panels keep on feeding into the inverter&batteries in both scenarios.

Thanks Guys!

Wasn't aware that I could switch off the Axpert as well. Are you saying that even when switched off it still monitors the batteries and keeps them full?

I think you need to leave the Axpert on but you can switch off mains breaker between the Axpert and the load.
