4 L16 @ 24v - VS - 8 T105 @ 48v
I am considering upgrading my Conext SW Inverter from 24v to 48v. I currently have 4 Trojan L16H-AC 435Ah batteries @ 24v. If I upgrade to the 48v Inverter, I would consider 8 Trojan T105 225Ah batteries.
The storage capacity is very similar:
4 L16H 435 x 24v = 10,400
8 T105 225 x 48v = 10,800
Yet the batteries are of different size, Weight, Plate size, etc. With the 24v L16 set up I currently have, I know what to expect and how they handle larger loads. Not great, but OK.
Large Loads on the system are:
Fridge compressor = 2.5 kWh per day
1/2 HP well pump = .55 kWh per day
1000 Watt Water Heater Element = .5 kWh per day (but most of the time not on the battery, only as a diversion)
Wondering how the 8 T105s would preform with these larger loads (especially surge/inrush) compared to the larger L16 size battery format.
