Growatt. Axpert equivalent

@Bowsie Try and take a picture of the bottom (where the wires and fan's are) of the inverter. The pictures are a little dark to clearly see what's going on. Also try get a pic of the label i.e. specs of the unit. Would be interesting to see what kW rating and can you stack (parallel) them? Also what SW versions are one is, if it behaves like a Axpert?

I had a look at www.growatt.com, but cannot find this particular model in their product list, so perhaps an older/new model. Same with ginverter.com.

So, at this early stage, I don't think it is a copy of Axpert etc, maybe just another nice inverter from China!

Apparently the original 5kva unit was a copy of the Axpert. They say that this is now their new unit launched this year.

If one looks at the MPPT specs then this is no longer an Axpert clone. Axpert MPPT Vmax is 145VDC Growatt MPPTmax is 580V.

What are the costs?

I cannot think of any cons.

I can think of only one, slightly higher quiescent current draw at night (for the second unused MPPT). Since this is usually in the order of tens of milliampere... probably not a problem.
