Re: LiFePO4 Batteries: Discussion Thread for Those Using Them as House Banks

Definitely contact Julia Yu, sales@skypowerintl.com

Re: Jedi Basic 12/24V DC electrical system

How did you handle the switching relays for the windlass ? Do they needed to be changed for 24v? Or will they handle the change as-is?

Re: Splendide in Europe

Yeah my wife really likes the looks of that one. I've never really heard of them. I would definitely prefer to spend a little more and get something that will just work!

Re: Victron Dealer in S.E. US ?

Are you looking for a local dealer to help with the installation or just a source to order the parts?

I have used Invertersupply.com and been very happy with the prices and customer service.

Re: Inverters 24V or 48V

WHY do you think you need twice the equipment for 24 vs 48v????
