  • Re: Going off grid

    Is this what I'm looking for ? 
  • Re: Battery issues?

    The CC state of charge is way off .

     I have the same type of setup  with 210 watts solar and 2 230ah GC 6 volt battery.

      The meter  is way off , I watch tv, run water , charge phones and computers and run lights off a inverter all night and don't even get in to my stored batt power .

     If I turn off all my power and let it rest for 1/2 an hour the Volts are  12.6 I never even see 12.5 (even on a rain day) 12.6 is about full charge .

     I checked all my cells after 3 months and I added 1/8 oz of water each , the reading where about the same,  im all good.

     BILL likes to see 14.5 v + for a couple of hours a day to charge flood battery,   but my CC  never gets that high.

     I think its because im all ways @ close to full charge.

     If I run every lite , TV, radio and pump water in full sun my CC will give me 14.5+ volts and up to 9.7 amps .

     most of the time im at 13.6 to  13.9     2 to 5 amps ?

     I do run a 30amp ranch and farm charger every month until I hit 15 volts to mix up the battery , it takes less then  1/2 an hour .

     I was off grid  jun to sept building my house ,with maybe 15 days off at home.      John
