Is this what I'm looking for ?1
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. John1
