    Re: Vehicle Reliability Calculator

    I presume for used vehicle current km would be (current km - bought at km)
    Age would be handled the same

    I would just change Equal value to 14.4V to be safe. It is set to manual.

    Actually no real need to do equalisation. I haven't done it yet. Six monthly should be fine

    Re: Amperage for 4x 400W 12/14.4V system

    Why go for two controllers for the 4 panels?

    One Victron 150/35 will do the trick. 2 panels in series, then 2 sets in parallel

    Half the price.

    Float value is 6x2.25 = 13.5Vv

    Cycle (bulk & absorption) 2.4x6 =14.4V
    Equal is same voltage, but you keep setting on manual

    If you are clued up, by all means play around with diodes

    If you half way clued up, will think about it but find not worth it.

    If you're clueless, best you don't know about it
