Rolls Surrette S-480 Battery L16 6V 375 AH
I pretty much toasted my Trojans a few years back, instead of running out and buying new Trojans, i bought a couple mighty max to get me to where i am today..
I'm running a 24 volt system. my lights/water pump and charging stations are 12 volt and i use a step down for that..
I have 1500 of panels and another 1000 watts im putting up after the melt..
my home is wired 110/12v
My volt meter shows me using roughly 380 watts when both TVS, cable boxes, lights and the kids xbox are on..That's the only thing we use on 110...And we shut inverter off each night when TVs aren't in use....On the most boring of days, the TV's may see 5 hours of use
My question is, would 8 S-480s be plenty, or should I go 12? I try and read up and see some forums talk about not putting more than 2 strings of a battery's together. Space wise, im already set up for 8. I'm sure someone will ask, when I had the 8 Trojans before, i was still in the process of building and never put a load on them.. Then the fires came..
As always, any help is appreciated
