Solar newbie, need help with battery advice


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone

I'm new to Solar and I've been doing a lot of research. I figured a 3kva 24v hybrid system would run the essentials during power outages and fit my rather small budget. After consultations with "professionals" I decided to start with an inverter and batteries before adding PV panels.

There was a good deal on a Synapse 3.0v+ inverter and I managed to buy one yesterday. However, I got stuck when it came to batteries.

A couple of people have recommended that I get 2nd life 48v lithium batteries (that would be "converted" to 24v) over gel batteries. Does anyone have experience with this? Would this be a wise step?

Secondly, has anyone used htp gel batteries? Do they perform well?

I look forward to your thoughts on this.
