That's not an error, it's a ⚠ warning.

Also, it's "Eq" (for EQualisation) not "E9". If you don't expect equalisation, check your settings, numbered up in the thirties. It's there because when you use equalisation on flooded lead acid batteries, the battery voltage is usually quite high, and you could be losing water from your battery cells.

But if you are using the equalisation settings to work around the premature float bug, you should be using your standard bulk/absorb voltage, so it should be safe to ignore.

So sorry I have mistaken your E9 with an 09,apologies.

Lithium battery does not need equalization and you should turn it off,battery equalization is only  use for lead-acid type batteries

Generally true. However, it can be used as a workaround for the premature float bug, especially in models where no patched firmware is available. In these cases, the equalisation voltage (setting 34) would be set to the same (or very nearly the same) as the bulk/absorb battery voltage (setting 26).

If setting 34 is significantly higher than setting 26, then this is indeed bad for your non-lead-acid battery, and you should turn it off by changing setting 33 (battery equalisation enable/disable) to EdS (disable). [ Edit: when this is done, none of the many other equalisation settings have any effect, so that's the only one you need to change. ]
