Generally, check the water level covers the plates (at least), then charge/equalize (add enough water to cover the plates if needed).... Then add water (not to the top) when charging/EQ is finished. … (View Post)

Ignoring the actual system and costs for a moment... Just to take some generic back of the envelope calculations:
* 3,000 Watt array * 0.52 off grid system eff * 5 hours of sun per day = 7,800 Watt*… (View Post)

From a energy view point, a 12 volt @ 110 AH battery is identical (in stored energy) to a 6 volt @ 220 AH battery:
* Energy (Watt*Hours) = Volts * Amp*Hours = 12 volts * 110 AH = 1,320 Watt*Hours
* … (View Post)

100 AH per 1 kW of inverter capacity is @ 48 volts. At 24 volts that would be 500 Watts of inverter per 100 AH, and at 12 volts would be 250 Watts per 100 AH.... (this is also suggested as the nomina… (View Post)
