Considering 'mini' battery bank for fleshing out system. Opinions?
A local battery shop has some 12V, 40Ah AGMs which have been sitting for a while. They offered them to me for $1/Ah. They are from the same batch, and all holding the same voltage (within .1 V of each other). The thought occured to me, that maybe I could use them as placeholders while doing the technical layout, voltage measurements, and learning the charge contoller. I don't plan on loading them down, just getting the detail work done. As expensive as batteries are, this would allow me to move forward with equipment I presently own while budgeting for the bigger bank later. I'd appreciate anyone's opinion on this idea. Thank you.
