I own a 1kva and a 3kva ipowerplus(Axpert) inverter. Both have tripped the Dc input breaker at least twice without any damage.

NiyiOmoIyunade:
I remember Oga Chris mentioned some Axpert inverters he had in production which failed when the end-users flipped the battery breaker while the inverter was 'inverting'.

I also had a Zinox (similar to Axpert) which died once after the breaker tripped due to an overload condition - it also had an internal component failure at the exact same moment so no way to know if the battery breaker tripping caused the internal component failure or if the internal short was what tripped the battery breaker grin

Thanks. That was a very helpful answer. Thanks to Kiekie too.
NiyiOmoIyunade:
All lead acid batteries benefit from desulfation because inherent to their design, they will always suffer from positive grid/plate corrosion and sulfation during the discharge and recharge process - in fact the very act of recharging a depleted lead acid battey implies desulfation.

The question then is how to do it right for an AGM/SMF battery since you cannot afford an overcharge (controlled or otherwise) leading to gassing and the battery drying up inside - for flooded/wet-cell batteries you would have simply replaced any lost fluids with distilled water after your equalization/controlled overcharge.

First things first you want to make sure your batteries get a full charge daily/regularly and are never left depleted for more than a week to get maximum mileage from them.

To desulfate/recover an AGM/SMF battery, first eliminate the misconception that you can do it with the battery bank hooked up in series e.g 24v,36v,48v and so on - each individual 12v battery (rarely you could have 6v AGM/SMF batteries in this part of the world) must be isolated and recharged to full charge individually > then load tested to ascertain capacity and > then recharged again to full charge > then you select batteries with similar capacity and hook them back up in series and connect to your inverter again and enjoy renewed performance

You could take a shortcut and buy a 12v inverter - e.g IcellPower (JUO) or Mustpower (Zeestone/KieKie) or any solid brand of your choice and hookup your batteries in parallel and charge fully - this method ensures you still get inverter backup/uniterrupted service while you are performing the full charge/desulfation process - you will need access to uninterrupted power during the period till you complete the charge cycle - yet, the best method is to isolate each individual battery and give it the treatment - full charge - load test - full recharge - group similar capacity batteries and put them back in service.

There is one last method where you can keep your series configuration and clap on a 12v charger to each individual battery and charge fully turn by turn given you have uninterrupted access to power to complete the charging process - needless to say you need to know what you are doing in this scenario and I will not dwell on it further.

To safely equalize/desulfate AGM/SMFs, you will need a smart charger capable of cutting off at 14.8volts (maximum safe upper limit) or lower as per manufacturer specs for the battery - anything over 14.8v per 12v battery you will likely gas the battery with no easy way to replace lost fluids in the AGM/SMF battery. I use a cheapo chinese charger called 'Suoer' for this purpose - it sells under 20k and cuts off reliably at 14.8volts.

You can also buy a battery desulfator e.g PowerPulse or BLS (Battery Life Saver) to assist in keeping your batteries healthy. I warrant to you though that in 8 years of using these desulfator devices I AM STILL UNDECIDED if they actually work!!! Sometimes they seem to perform a miracle and sometimes they appear useless - I know though that I will not buy any new ones apart from the ones I already have.

All in all, a very long reply to a very short question - I hope it is of help grin

About injector nozzle cleaning...... Do you know know anyone who does it professionally (ultrasonic cleaning and flow testing)

GAZZUZZ:


It is complicated, The database is quite clumsy.

If you want to re-reister an already registered vehicle, the program will notify you of a conflict of VIN, you cvan search by reg number and get full info, but searching Via vin (option exists) never seems to work.

Is it possible to ascertain the registration status and details of a car in Nigeria using the chassis number
saintjoel:





Never assume all is well when buying a Nigerian used car.

OYO may be your case if you don’t sight and verify all the vehicle documents before you part with your money..

Some have fallen victim.. and the car they bought ended up being stolen or smuggled vehicles. To prevent future occurrence, I have come up with this list that will prevent you from buying an undocumented vehicle..

These are the 8 Documents you should ask for when buying a Nigerian used car:

1. Custom documents fully stamped and check whether all things correspond like name and model of car, VIN and all payments were made. Mostly like 6 or more papers.. could be photocopy if multiple cars were cleared by one dealer. But make sure it is a clear crisp document not faded crap.. and don’t take the nobody will ask you for customer paper crap . It could spell doom or stolen vehicle.

2. CMR (Computerized Motor Registration) original copy

3. Current insurance (original copy)

4. Vehicle licence (original copy)

5. Road worthiness certificate (original copy)

6. Plate number allocation (original copy)

7. Original proof of ownership fully stamped

8. You will collect two printed and signed documents:
a. Change of ownership document
b. Receipt of purchase from previous owner

There are some other documents you may need like
a. Tinted permit doc
b. police report/doc of change of ownership/plate number/engine number/ chassis number (which we call vin)

Make sure you see the change of ownership letter given to the buyer duly signed when he first bought it as Nigerian used.. except the car was bought as tokunbo then you may not need this.

Once the car doesn’t have custom doc.. except it’s a beetle and the documents have expired years ago, I suggest you stay away from such ride.

If you have any further questions, don’t forget to drop it
Car Talk / Re: Read This Before You Buy Another Used Car by dejidotun2000(m): 5:24am On Nov 15
Are you absolutely sure that the details of a pre-registered car will come up if one tries to re-register it?

I am in a particularly difficult situation. I mistakenly registered my car with the custom papers of another car (dealer had two similar cars and mistakenly gave me the wrong paper initially) . Unfortunately I didn't know that MVAA will require the custom paper of the other car in order to correct mine.

TLDR:I need to contact the owner of the other car

chinjo:
This only happen when car owners prefer to patronize touts when registering a vehicle. Every genuine registered vehicle can not be re-registered except their is evidence of purchase and valid police clearance certificate. In the process of registering a vehicle, as soon as you imputes the chassis number into the computer, the name of the previous owner appears with all his details including his phone number. A call is then placed to that phone number to confirm if the car was sold or stollen before proceeding with the registration process. A lot of cars have been recovered in this process. That is why those that have clean cars with old number plates should try and get the new number plate because no data is available on the FRSC website for old number plates. All are encouraged to visit the FRSC NVIS desk officer at the state board of internal revenue of each state for the registration of their vehicles.

If 407 has cheaper parts than a Corolla and the 407 parts don't fail earlier than a Corolla, does that not make a Corolla a better car for practical purposes, especially if 407 has better aesthetics

iamspeedracer:


Parts fail when proper maintenance is not done when due, except there's a defect from the camry. Because the 407 has cheaper power train parts makes it the better car? Never seen such level of KAGAWAISM. till I started this debate with you. It's been really enlightening so a car is better because the parts are cheaper. I've seen it all. KAGAWAISM 2.0

But you told someone on the uber thread who complained that his Toyota corolla strut failed to check the steering rack.

"Front struts and engine mounts do not wear out at once, wear is progressive.
Your engine mounts and struts were not destroyed by new driver.
Meanwile from experience the struts of your veicle hardly fail, look in the direction of te steering rack.
Good luck."

As far as I am aware Yinglee does not sell for retail market except through approved installers.

Can the forum share contact details . I am looking for double sided panels since last two months ( the LG ones are 130 K each for 300 watt) and Solarworld seem to have vanished from market

Yingli also has Bifacil panels and is Global leader in twincell

I am looking for - http://www.yinglisolar.com/en/products/monocrystalline/panda-bifacial-60cl/


Quote from - http://www.eco-business.com/news/why-two-faced-solar-panels-are-a-bright-idea/"

Yingli’s bifacial modules, known as the TwinMax series, were launched last year, and are made using the company’s special technology, known as Panda cells. These use phosphorous, rather than boron, to treat the silicon so that it can conduct electricity by up to 10 per cent more efficiently than others."

Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by dejidotun2000(m): 9:28pm On Sep 11
What is the source of the Yingli panels being sold in Nigeria that you heard is substandard ? I am aware that Yingli have a sales outlet at Opebi and Alaba. I wonder if such outlets could be selling fake Yingli panels. I bought two panels from them and they are working just fine.
mcci:


I've not used it but have my doubts about genuine Yingli panel availability in Nigeria.

I recently considered it but on further investigation I realised what is been sold in Nigeria is of questionable quality not genuine Yingli.

Even the datasheet document appears to be fake when compared to the original.

My conclusion is double check any panel been sold to you because there more substandard panels in Nigeria than genuine ones

I use Kung long , 150AH*2 . I have had it for about 8 months now. My inverter is set to shutdown at 23v (11.5v ), on very rare occasions - maybe about 6 times - has my inverter ever shut down. My load is usually less than 100 Watts and never more than 200 Watts for more than 6 so I am treating the battery quite gently. All in all, it still works.
