  1. Thanks for the info, unfortunately it did not work
  2. Hi, I would like to know if anyone can help with what the default password is for the sinephone app to change my inverter settings with the app. Please see attached images.
  3. @Lindsay At the moment the smart battery has coms to Victron inverter and possible SMA. Growatt, Goodwe and Sunsync support are coming in about a month or 2. They can Parallel upto 16 units together. I have sent the guys at @ICC information with my protocol for integration and await their response. Voltronics/Axpert are not willing to play ball and answer any of my emails. So unfortunately no integration with them any time soon.
  4. Thanks for all the good words guys @Krokkedil and @Gerlach @Lindsay The 6kwh unit 24V is also available.
  5. Does the lighter terminal look more positivy to you hahahahaha
  6. Correct. I run 2 inverters in parallel to power my entire house including geyser and stove. For the test sake i disconnected the salve and connected the cables to my MKS for the test. Even the master only gets 1.7kw, also connected to 2.97kw of panels.
  7. Yeah, the main thing bugging me is the damn MPPT that is so insufficient. I mean, only 1.7kw from 2970w panels... no man...
  8. I don't understand what that has to do with the low PV efficiency?
  9. Tried that as well, you can also see in one of the short videos i turn the inverter on. the 1.6 goes to 1.7kw. Also regarding the setting, its anyway faulty because why would it only be pushing in 1.6kw into the battery when the charge current is set to 50a (2688w @ 56v)? Also tried setting to 120a, made no difference. The inverter had the solar power balance on by default, i disabled it in an attempt to resolve this issue. Everything about these inverters are buggy. really disappointing.
  10. Hi Greenman, Glad to hear you are pleased with my product. After that video i upgraded to 71.92 on Sunday, results are the same. I have also selected solar for Load first option, also no success. no matter what setting i change or what combination i use i cannot get it to perform close to the efficiency of my old inverter. Also regarding the charge on the batteries, the current is set to 50a so it should have anyway pushed allot more power to the batteries regardless as they were nowhere near full. Also just to make sure, before i took the video i turned of my PV and turned the geys
  11. So for all interested, here is a wetransfer link for videos i created demonstrating the Axpert King's inefficiency Problem. https://we.tl/t-NllIhxBu0J
  12. So i set it to Online, Seems the battery is charging with all the available current now. It seems that the Axpert king inverters are extremely bad at pv conversion as i still only get max 1.7kw As a proof i will tonight connect the old MKS up to the one set of panels and at 12am tomorrow morning i will get my wife to take an image of both of the inverters PV conversion efficiency. This is extremely disappointing of the Axpert king.
  13. Hi, So I have this little problem with my Axpert King inverter i just installed. Previously I had the MKS 4kw 5kva version and the Solar power i got average on a sunny is about 2.3kw per inverter, there are 3x3 330w panels on each inverter giving a total of 2970 or 5940w for both. After i installed the Kings i noted that the PV utilization is shot to hell. Whats strange is is that it seems that the PV utilization is somehow link to the total load in a way, the max utilization seems to be 1.7kw per inverter if under load. I have tried changing multiple setting but cannot s
  14. @JJS Lol, I don't have any ETA as of yet, eta if i could order would be 6-8 weeks. The virus can survive 10 days without an host. the cells are allot longer on the water so don't stress lol
