  1. Re: Sunsync or Victron - Should I replace my Victron system

    I'll rather buy two 250/100's before I buy one 450/100 even though it will cost R10k more in the end.
    Two 250/100's will give you 11.6 kW of capacity where the 450/100 only gives you 5.6 kW, plus...
  2. Re: Sunsync or Victron - Should I replace my Victron system

    You can of course do this, but apart from the price of a 450/100, isn't part of your mission to get more inverter capacity as well?

    You can also do it...

  14. Re: Leaving quality Solar Panels outside in Light rain
