HOW TO GET THE MOST LIFE OUT OF YOUR SOLAR BATTERY BANK

I thought I knew a lot about batteries untill I got in to solar. I was wrong. Your battery in your car is not the same.. This is a video about charging batteries for an off grid or battery backup system. Lets face it if you dont have a healthy battery bank in the event that you need or depend on it and it fails, all your hard work is down the drain.

  1. i have 8 Trace 235AH 6V Deep Cycle Battery 48 volts and have the flexmax 80 can you tell me what are the charging voltage set points-current limit, absorb, float, absorb time limit, end amps and rebulk.? i can't find the specs

  2. Hi! Kevin
    Do you still have this 12/24 volt system?
    I have tried to build my own and used alot of info. from you
    It is not identical to yours but,it does the job for me
    You have been a Great help to me.
    All the best to you!
    Have a good one.
    P.S.
    I am getting to do videos Soon!

  3. Nice video. For GEL cells (not AGM's) you will find that they will last longer if you never charge more than 14.1volts (14.3v absolute max) at normal temperatures. Never equalize GEL cells (even 15 volts can ruin them.)

  4. Nice work you doing. I have few questions

    (1) I used a 12 AWG cable for connecting my solar pannel to my charge controller?
    Can I use that same 12 AWG cable for connecting my charge controller to my 200AH battery?

    (2) what size circuit breaker in amps can I use on the positive side between my battery (200AH) and my inverter (1500 watt pure sine wave)

  5. Solar systems are for fools, if,you owe a loan on your house or rent.Want to save? get out of debt,stay out of debt.owe no man nothing.
