Inverter Recommendations - Budget Friendly

Hello all.

I currently have an Axpert King 3K and am looking to upgrade to something a little bigger as I want to expand my solar array... Naturally, I am leaning towards the Axpert King 5K but wanted to get opinions from others if there was something else I should be looking at in the similar R15k price range.

I will have the following in my setup.

Battery - 4x 200AH 12v batteries or 1x 4.8kw Li-ion battery

PV - 2.6kw initial with the idea of expanding up to 4kw

Load - peaking up to 4kw

 

I like the Axpert King mainly due to the 0ms transfer time which has always been very friendly to my desktop computers, home automation and LED lighting. I am currently using ICC Software for reporting & control and I like tinkering with the settings to get the max out of the system.

Any suggestions that would be better than the Axpert King? If so, can you give me some motivations why if possible.

 

Thanks in advance

 

P.S. If anyone is looking for an Axpert King 3K, I will have one for sale soon 😁

If you just want to add to your solar panels and your inverter is large enough for you usage needs, then it might be an easier option just to add and external MPPT charge controller for the new panels. That way you can keep what you currently have.

This was mentioned in the forums in the last 2 weeks.

Thank you, found the thread... Interesting but the costs of the external MPPT would not be financially beneficial for me... I would also prefer the large Inverter at the same time
