I've fallen into a trap for young players.
Have trawled through the forums first before posting.
Buying gear for installation into the back of my 2021 BT-50 with future-proofing foremost in my thinking - therein lies the trap!
Bought the fantastic 1250D before reading the "Bigger is not always better" article.
Already have a 100 A/hr Lithium battery (not very old) from my old BT-50.
Per your advice here: "I'd also double check with the battery manufacturer to ensure that they can indeed take a recommended charge current of between 25-30A each battery."
The battery specifications Datasheet provided by the manufacturer of my battery lists:
Max. Charging Current [A] - 100, &
Recommended Charging Current [A] - 50
My planned install is:
200W MONOCRYSTALLINE SOLAR PANEL SMSP1200 (next purchase at the end of this month) permanently fixed on top.
1000W pure sine wave inverter
i) Do I need to add another 100 A/hr battery because I have the 1250D,
ii) When I pick up my portable panel will that improve the rate at which my battery/ies
will charge? That is will the combined amps from the two panels charge faster?, &
iii) Which of your excellent wiring diagrams and other resources do you recommend?
And thanks guys, Redarc doing really great on the world stage.
