    When connecting parellel batteries, keep lengths equal.

    With a single battery bank (series without anything in parallel) I do not think it matters if + and - are different lengths. Rather each as...

    Re: 2.4kWh 48V Lithium Battery

    As Fluffy said: 4x 25A batteries in parallel will give you 100A.

    To add on and answer the rest: If you still draw the 25A, you can draw for 4x longer (time) in that setup.

    Re: Solar borehole pump

    Have a look at the Nastec 4HS MP borehole pumps. Variable speed, built in MPPT. Can be powered directly using AC or up to 400Vdc.

    Around 330W is cheaper per Watt, but when adding the costs of the mounting structure, bigger modules may be more cost effective per Watt.

    Voltage drop over the 4mm wire for 6000W is about 3.2v (1.4%).

    It has a 1280Wh lithium battery with 1800W inverter (can peak/surge to 3300W).

    The claim of 1hr to 80% charge, but 2hrs to 100% does not really make sense for lithium.
