3KW axpert at holiday home

Recommended Posts

I have a Mecer Axpert 3kw/24V inverter, planning to run it at my holiday home, for loadshedding backup. 
i have 8x Ritar 12V 100ah bateries, which i was thinking of connecting as 4x24Volt banks onto the inverter. 
my questions are as follows

1. Is it possible to do, with multiple banks of batteries?

2. What charge Amps do i need to set the inverter for?

3. Will it have any adverse effects on the batteries, to leave them in this setup over long periods?

4. I spend about 7 days a month there. Would it be better to leave it off, when unattended, or can i leave it running? 
 
Will appreciate any input on this

1. Yes it will work fine. The 4x 24V sets will give you more Amps, thus more Ah in total. You might want to add 4x battery balancers that will optimise and take a bit of care on those batteries, but that is not a must. Just better.

2. 4x the Amps of 1 battery if it can go that high. If the inverter/charger cannot supply that high amps it is not a issue. It will just take longer to charge, but it will get there.

3. They can get out of balance. But battery balancers will sort that out.

4. Lead Acid likes to be fully charged. Keep them running.

Thanks for the assistance!

I will have to invest in some Balancers then
