Hi Guys

Please, before you just shoot me!

I need as much as possible feedback from all the members as well as their acquaintances on either the Imeon 3.6 or 9.12

Especially if users of the product can let us know about their own experiences, whether it is good or bad!

Photo's and videos will be very welcome.

I am NOT trying to create a topic to just shoot a product down, but to establish some facts about the product and to see whether we cannot help some of our fellow members.

Thanks Guys

ChrisR

nope Don, a French design but built in China by `Voltronic Power if i remember correctly

I would've thought that they (Voltronic) would have lost the rights to build the Imeon after they copied the Infini off it? Granted, I 'm not fully clued in, just thinking how these things normally work.

From what I've seen on this forum so far, granted mostly Mike's pictures and reports, you're better off with an Infini rather than an Imeon, but I simply don't know... we'll have to wait for the owners to report back. I seem to recall there are at least two others?

According to statistics,  about 2 containers of these grey stuff was sold into South Africa in the last 2.5 to 3 years. I am aware of about 12 people which had problems, ( but I also know that this type of thing people wont talk about easily ) 12 out of +/- 600 is about 2%, which is not bad at all  :wub: On the other hand I am totally convinced that these figures are totally wrong, but I need info to prove this!

Mike's failure rate over the last, what, 2 years is much higher.

It's funny how these things work. Toyota has a Diesel engine known as the 1KZ-TE. Failure rates are in the single digits (percentage wise)... BUT... among techies this engine is known to be a "bad" engine with all sorts of head problems (broken valve guides etc). 2% might not be that "good". Once again though, let me stress: I'm by no means an expert here.

Well, that's the thing. Most products fail. Some more than others, but how do they determine the exact failure rate? Purely by the amount of RMA's? Possibly, which means those engines have a much higher failure rate percentage than advertized.

Same with inverters. Where do you take it for repairs after the warrenty expired? Possibly not to the same supplier as the local sparky down the road might be cheaper. Or closer. Or you have a relationship with him. Or, worse case, you buy a new one and one knows about that failed machine.

Hi

Self installed Imeon 3.6 with 8 Narada 12 NDT200 batteries and 11 Canadian Solar 330v panels. Des 2017 as backup only and Des 2018 added the panels.

Produce up to 17kwh

Very happy up to now, concerned about all the bad comments,  talked to that French person at the Sandton Convention Centre 2017, he actually phoned me and provided an update per e-mail. They did not attend the last 2 years.

Older model without wi-fi and coms for Lithium. For this reason thought to change inverter when in need of new batteries and use the Imeon on gridtie configuration to supplement loads. It runs my 2 swimmingpool pump easy.

For interest sake, I'm not in the industry,  just playing around. 

Johan
