Oh, I'm not really referring to buying already made system. Just talking of suspiciously new username that may be dropping phone numbers to be contacted for "services/sales". We just gotta be careful of em.

Sorry about your Blue Carbon experience. I nearly bought them from Alibaba like some years back before they made it to Nigeria, but something appeared off about em and I didn't go through with the payment.

There is a probability that a cell may be bad in the set up. You can easily pinpoint this if you have a Bluetooth BMS which states the parameters of each cell.

There's no way of interacting with the BMS, so I can't get a read of the individual cell voltages. The battery is probably loaded with B-grade cells. Short of opening it up, there's no way to know for sure

try do a capacity test, also make sure the battery is charged to full capacity.

Thanks Boss!
I'll have to get a charger right? If I switch the inverter to bypass only and use it to charge the batteries with 29.2v, it hardly gets past 27.5/27.6v which I think corresponds to 90% charge

Oh my god that's so cool, it's just what I wanted.
I wish it's 60v cause it's for an electric motor, this will reduce the speed of I decide to go for it.
48v 20ah would be almost the same as a 60v 12ah at the end of the day.
I may be wrong.

Could you please recommend where I can get the 60v version I would compensate you.
Also are you in Lagos Cause I may consider it.
I can build it for you

@bigrovar is the resident expert on the ipowerplus inverters. He's been rocking his for over 5yrs now i think. So, i think they are okay. I don't know whether they can charge LifeP04 batteries though without some tinkering with the firmware. Just make sure sha that you are buying an original product with warranty.

Ipowerplus are actually a white labelled product from voltronic Taiwan. The inverter is used and quite popular across the globe. I have used their 24/3kva for over 4 years without any issue.

The major and known issues with them is their MPPT charge algo which has a known bug that causes their charge to go to float earlier than it should. This issue is well documented. Fortunately the community around the inverter released a custom firmware which fixes the issue.

The also released a firmware that makes it LifePo4 battery compatible. Unfortunately those firmware only apply to the 5kv version of the inverter.

Telsa uses 21700 battery which is a modification of 18650 to have higher energy density and reduce weight. LiFePO4 has a larger size though has higher cycle life but reduces efficiency due to total weight of the vehicle.
All battery voltage drop on usage, the voltage drop is dependant on load current and battery AH or capacity.

Ehen, because I shock when I read that too.

errrrm, physics/science supports JUO, somehow, but not totally

300wh that can power your laptop for about 10 hours for 55k.... an avg laptop takes about 65w to charge and empty battery for 40 to 90 mins, lemme assume 1hr, so 65wh, so 235wh remaining. once the laptop battery is full, energy consumption drops drastically.
it then drops to consuming btw 7 to 15watts to sustain the battery. if we use avg of 10watts, the balance of 235wh will last well over 20hrs ---- so this claim is correct

480wh, can power pc for more 18hours for 80k, assuming you are also referring to a laptop here, this is also correct as the earlier calculation above applies, but it PC= desktop, then this is false, as most tower and screen desktop consume over 200 watts

1260wh, can power your pc for 3 days on a single charge, 200k, same analysis as above suffices

Penuelseun:
He is right you know, how can a 480wh battery power a 65w laptop for 18hrs?


A 65wattb will not continue to consume 65watt after the battery is full. That right there answers that. Power consumption of the Laptop reduce once battery is fully charged. I have showed testimony from customers and that is enough proof.

You did not pay good attention to what he wrote......he has since edited it to input the word 'almost' to replace 'all'. Out of the respect i have for the platform and the good knowledge i have gained from here. I will not let the discussion go to the dogs but will give answers to all serious questions. No love lost!

This prove that i have not made false claim as the duo alleged. Thanks for your enlightening and useful contribution Sir. I hope those making those false accusation against the post can now sheath their sword. I assemble the batteries here in Nigeria and there is no way i could have been going around brandishing falsehood, but they consider it too easy to make assertion without facts and even go further to make a sweeping statement against the products i produce locally and sell as if that is way to give a brother a lift. We need to rethink our ways really!

I prefer a Hybrid Car (Fuel and Electric) than a full Electric.
Charging a Full Electric in this Nigeria where Power is epileptic and there are no charging points in most places, could mean one gets stuck on an Express Road without a charging Point in sight.
Na to dey push Moto from Abuja to Kano. grin grin

Hybrid is like double wàhálà for dead body.

The problem of Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) plus the problem of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs). So instead of contending with ICEs alone or BEVs alone, una go come put two problems for head.

But truly, battery tech has gone far that BEVs are so much more efficient and the mileage anxiety associated with using BEVs is gradually resolving. And battery tech are constantly improving. Will Prowse (a You tuber) charges his tesla using his home solar system. US is on 120v but he found a way to change output to 240v (something about double phase) and then charge his tesla.

The only problems I forsee now is software issues with the use of these BEVs since they mostly need software programming to function.

Think about having an OTA update for your car. Or maybe taking it to computer Village for OS installation, then having the thing bricked. cheesy

Thank you! So it does get to 100%. But then falls to 24.5v very quickly and the inverter has to switch to grid power.

That's why I need a monitor.

I'm not sure the inverter I have. It's a hybrid inverter. If anyone is familiar with the inverter Arnergy Solar uses in their blue custom made boxes, then that's the one. I'm certain it has a data port.
Can you please link me to the wifi module on Aliexpress

You no get internet lol
You'll receive the OTA updates too na. so no need to start trying to do aftermarket installs. That's if you get the Tesla though... as they are they ones that are always pushing updates to their cars. I doubt the Hyundai Kona will need much in terms of updates and even if it does, it will certainly be pushed to your car no worries.

EVs are the way forward. It just makes too much sense. Make them just bless me with like 50m and that's it... All my energy and survival needs will come from the Sun (As God intended cheesy)

Dishtech:

I think the best battery for ebike or any electric vehicle is 18650 lithium batteries. Even telsa uses it because it has higher energy capacity.
480 pieces of 2.6ah of 18650 should give you 59.2v normal voltage and 67.2 at full charge. Which is about 4617.6wh or 4.6kwh.
If you were in Abuja I would have source for the battery and make one for you.

@Dishtech. Your contact for 18650s would be needed ó. I need cells.

Dishtech:
This is 5.12kwh, 24v but can be configured to any voltage.

And I think you should invest in a spot welder. I have a USB type C rechargeable one that I got for around 18k. With full charge and at mid range gear, you can weld around 200 contacts before needed recharge.

What I understand with Tesla is that ever since the made the 2015 first tesla, they have reserved Li-ion chemistry (18650 or 2700) for their high performance trims while they reserve the Lifepo4 for the less luxurious trims for obvious reasons. Li-ion can deliver much more high current within short periods, much more than Lifepo4 can. The Tesla model Y uses Li-ion. The Tesla Cybertruck is planned to run on Li-ion.

As per life cycle, I don't know how tesla did it, but a TESLA user made a you tube video when his tesla first model hit one million miles. Although he admitted to doing a battery pack replacement at around 400k miles.

How many ICEs hit the the 300k mile range before they get scrapped?

Please who has any review for this lithium battery?
I'm get to purchase two of then but I need inputs from the solar gurus here. The seller claims each is 12v 200ah.

Thanks in anticipation

Is the seller on this forum? I have chatted someone up here on NL who sent me pictures of modules that look like this too. They are LFP and were salvaged used from BEVs. He claims they still have very good capacity left, which is not unbelievable considering that LFLs can have as much as 2500 to 3000 cycles and still have 80% capacity left.

And you need to know that they don't have BMS as they are in that picture. You need to reach an arrangement with him for BMS to be installed at extra charge.

And I think he can make either 24v or 48v out of the modules, according to what he told me.

Evening guys,

Is there a device that allows me to monitor my solar performance. So allows me to see energy generated, the load, battery voltage etc

So a separate and passive monitoring device (separate to the inverter)

Thanks.
Hope such a device exist and if not, WHY NOT

I have a wireless meter that I may have up for sale. I used it for about one week before retiring it because it wasn't the model I intended to get. The range is shorter (about 10 meters in the open) compared to the one I saw on you tube which has around 20 meters. I eventually bought the 20 meters range meter which I currently have hooked up.

So the first one is available for pick up.

Edited. I realized you intended use for solar input monitoring. This one would serve purpose better for energy usage monitoring from your batteries.

Does your charge controller not have energy logging feature?

If you need a good one with basic features and non complicated wiring, check the item in this link. I have the type hooked up to a client's system monitoring the solar panel input.
