Now I am just sitting at the office watching the battery pack charge.
This morning it was 10% SOC, and now it is 80%SOC(14:00).. should reach 100%SOC by 16:00.
It works flawless and automatic, no need to human input.
If i can get my hand on one more battery pack I might consider expanding.
P.V. battery backup systems I've seen folks build around our 2nd home in Montana are lead acid - so the thought of no off-gassing fumes / venting requirements would be a real JOY - not even considering the power to weight improvement.
I'm wondering how you'd ever find any salvage yard (in the U.S.) with a used battery. Is there a master website that lists salvage parts and location somewhere, or do you have to just make 200 phone calls to random places?
