  1. I had the same inverter as you and it charged my 4 x Lithium batteries with no problems. As long as the settings for "Bulk and Float" are close together as per the Lithium charging recommendation.
  2. You need to install the "Prolific USB-to-Serial" driver and not the "USB-serial CH340".
  3. I need to upgrade to a larger system to fully utilize my 4600W PV Array, so I am putting this feeler out there. 1 X Victron Multiplus-11 48/3000/35 inverter 1 x Victron BlueSolar 150/60-tr MPPT 1 X Victron SmartSolar 150/45-tr MPPT 1 X MK3 to USB cable 2 X VE.Direct to USB cable 1 x RPI3-B with ESS Software pre-loaded. Asking price = R 27 000 All the above Victron units are 2019 models. Still under Warranty. I would prefer to sell all as a unit as it is currently in use.
  4. The best definition for me as to what a Hybrid inverter is, is that it can work with or without batteries. While the Victron cannot work without batteries a Sunsynk can.
  5. This is what you said: "Victron being such a great brand still cannot produce an MPPT over 250v"
  6. I think you are the one to check your facts before posting.
  7. I am not comparing it to a Sunsynk? I reckon that the Sunsynk is a great inverter. Look at the statement that was made then you may comment again.
  8. I have simulated the "My Solar+Battery" app using the normal emoncms feeds and added colour Led,s to see what is feeding what in realtime. The calculations are slightly off due to the self consumption of the inverter.
  9. Well for a poorly made battery I must say that it is performing outstanding in tests that are underway for the past 4 years in Australia. It is keeping up and even surpassing top battery brands. For the record I do not own or have owned a Pylontech battery. The testing site can be reached here: BatteryTestingReport9Sept2020.pdf (batterytestcentre.com.au)
  10. Not at all. I never mentioned any branded names.
  11. Those Prismatic cells used in the pylontechs are specially designed by themselves, and are of a superior quality to many of the plastic square lifepo4 case cells.
  12. I was busy trawling through emoncms site the other day and see that Tryston Lee has made a new app last year "My Solar + Battery". What a nifty app. This is the info that I think most of us want to see from our solar systems.
  13. Here someone is posting on Facebooks "Name and Shame Warning" group. Does the address look familiar?
  14. This happened to me about 2 years ago. One MC4 also melted like that. Turns out the cable was not crimped on properly.
