  1. We are currently out of stock, but should arrive within the next ten days, if you interested
  2. Can't agree more with @plonkster. I would also say that you have a bad battery there. Try the test Plonkster is suggesting, else remove one of the batteries and do the test whilst hooked up with battery cables and try to start your vehicle.
  3. Hi Marcel Balancing your batteries is of utmost importance if you are using lead acid/ agm / gel batteries. We have discussed this quite a few times on the forum already. All these types of batteries requires balancing, irrespective of the brand name. A set of batteries not equalised / balanced, will have a shorter lifetime than those balanced, and you will almost always end up with a battery in the bank, collapsing before the other 3 partners. We all know that it is not viable to replace 1 battery in a bank of 4, hence the need for a battery balancer. I found that the HA-02 balancer is d
  4. Sunsync is out of the box supplied with an app and Wi-Fi dongle. Monitoring as easy as pie!
  5. The setting should be set correctly on the inverter as to allow for max. amp output. The Pylontech battery warranty is not in any way linked to the amount of batteries, but to the max current drawn at any given time, of which data they have available in the BMS of each battery.

  7. Hi Paul, Lithium is the way to go definitely! But it is still more expensive than gel/agm batteries.

  13. n Infini 4kw super would be the nearest match for an Imeon 3.6kw
