Setting Classic 150 AH capacity

hemmjohemmjo Solar Expert Posts: 90 ✭✭
I am not finding where in the menus I need to set the battery capacity on my classic 150. I know I have done this before as it is set to 432 which was the previous capacity. Now it is 470. I have searched the manual and the classic screens. No luck. Has to be there, just not seeing it.

Thanks,
John

    Is it crucial to set battery capacity in classic?

    At the first time, I thought classic is able to detect it automatically. ::D

    Capacity is for MNBjr batt monitor and it needs to know this capacity to display accurate SOC and amps remaining.
