2V300Ah Gel batteries + Victron BMV702 Battery Monitor


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have 2 sets of 48v300Ah gel batteries in 2v cells.

1 set i had been using for a little over a year and since install, i cycled it maybe a handful of times. I had a maximum of 500w as backup for loadshedding.

We did have the odd 24 hour power cut and max discharge on these days were no more than 20%, battery bar always showed full. These babies kept me going.

other set is basically brand spanking new, i had Jaco Go-Solar hook it up ( together with the set above) when he installed my solar system, but within 3 days i realized i rather just buy the Pylontech batteries and get an ESS going straight away. So this set got a top up charge and is now waiting for a new owner.

Price for the used battery is R900 per 2v300Ah and R1100 for the new one. 

Victron BMV702 monitor R2000 (NEW) 

If you need more info, please PM me.

That's a good price for a battery bank that size. What's the life expectancy on the 2V cells?

See spec sheet attached

To give some perspective, I imported the 12v100Ah (same factory as this 2v300Ah) back in 2014 , and had this going well for 5 years until 2019 when i realized my long hours backup time was slowly reducing, and Eskom/Council was extremely unstable in my area.

So imported the 2v300Ah to make sure i am covered for up to 2 days.
