The real issue is BMS communications. Victron supports this:  VE.Can to CAN-bus BMS cables manual

Use these VE.Can to CAN-bus cables to connect a CAN-bus enabled battery to a GX device.

1. Selecting the right cable

ASS030710018 - VE.Can to CAN-bus BMS type A Cable 1.8m

  • BYD B-Box
  • Pylontech US2000C/US3000C/Force-L

ASS030720018 - VE.Can to CAN-bus BMS type B Cable 1.8m

  • LG Chem Resu
  • AXIstorage
  • BMZ
  • Pylontech US2000/US3000/UP2500

2. Installation

The side labeled 'CAN-bus BMS' plugs into the battery. The other side, labeled 'VE.Can' must be plugged into either the VE.Can port of the GX device, or the BMS-Can port.

Both port types (VE.Can and BMS-Can) on a GX Device can be configured for use with a CAN-bus BMS connected third party battery.

For configuration, see the manual specific to the brand of battery you are using.

3. Pin-out

In some cases it might be needed to make the cable at the location. Find below the pin-outs. Make sure to very carefully test the cable after crimping it. Self-made cables are very often the causes of very hard to diagnose problems.

You can of course connect non communicating battery to Victron, however you looses a lot on status and management and especially SoC. Now you need other ways to get SoC, it may or may not be accurate info tho.

Thanks, this is useful for victron integration. 

But what i am actually after is which local battery is preferred and which is best supported?

I installed BYD for my Solar Micro grid system. I do have some posts on here regarding the BYD and the Micro grid.
