My last brain cell was being taxed when needing the state of the potential energy from each of the different system voltages of the battery-banks at a glance. A helpful association chart was needed to be placed on 3" x 5" cards and placed near the controllers which permit quick correlations.

Conversion chart equating 24v to 12v Terminology.



























Many an off-grid adventurer obtain their solar panels and batteries, then plug in the largest inverter that their pocketbook can afford.Photo of Large Inverter used in Off-Grid Applications

Inverters that pull the voltage created by the batteries all the way up to 110v...almost exclusively to power devices that are nearer to the voltages provided by the initial battery voltage, is loss.

Using a large inverter to handle your entire life's electricity consumption is blindly having faith that the inverter will never break down.Solar and Wind Energy Work Wall

The advantage of having the freezer and some of the other larger appliances powered by a 48v battery bank as opposed to a 12v bank are instantly noticed.

Even for chores such as maintaining the lawn, I've noticed that the electric weed whacker is definitely out-performing the previous years pulling from a 12v battery bank. The washer spins faster also. The advantages still cannot outweigh the cost for most items though. For instance, if one of the batteries of the required 8 (6v x 8 = 48v) should fail or short-out, the entire bank is down until the problem is remedied. Whereas in a 12v bank, I merely pull it's partner battery in the series connection and go back to weed whacking (6v x 2 = 12v).

Implementing large, expensive inverters is risky

Consider utilizing multiple inverters that are smaller and cheaper for item-specific operation, instead.Micro-Inverter for off-grid small loads

The loss of a micro-inverter doesn't break a budget to replace.

Similar to the advice to choose micro battery banks over macro, so ought to be your mindset toward inverters.

If a micro-inverter ever goes down, simply piggy-back to another inverter that is still operational. VoilĂ , mom lives.

Whenever possible, utilize DC TO DC, instead.

DC to DC is tantamount to zero phantom loss (not counting line-drop due to great distances, or mis-wire-sizing).

Why would you want to charge a battery bank at one voltage, then step the voltage all the way up to 110v, only to have it step-down to the exact voltage you started with?

If it's a 12v AC appliance (preferably one that's "broken"), simply remove the step-down converter, split the wires and shazam....no more potential problems of a step-down converter going bad on you due to popping capacitors or faulty i.c.'s. (and now that broken AC 12v appliance lives another life with DC instead).

Converting electricity from one extreme to the other is needless loss.

Another potential disaster is the "what-if" scenario.

It's no easy task for an old person to rearrange batteries, or rearrange wiring, to obtain some voltage that is needed at a critical time.

In other words, if the 48v battery bank is completely down, I can't even readily connect 12v items in a pinch. Rather, it ends up being an all-nighter, or some other similar major undertaking.

The 48v emergency conversion to 12v, as seen within my videos was completed in 12 hours of straight unadulterated work. Does this sound fun to you? Me neither. The conversion requires working on all phases (solar, battery, inverter, and controller).

One thing led to another and before you knew it, I was replacing all the wiring for 4 gauge/awg.

As luck would have it, the conversion process of changing for larger wiring had alerted me to a problem that otherwise may have gone undetected for many more months. One of the feed wires from the quick-disconnect was black and burned, the jacket of the wire was blackened and melted, and in all there were about an inch of affected wire.


Batteries Plus is a much appreciated business in that they make batteries readily available.Fraud in the MarketplaceH O W E V E R , It is not appreciated after having invested so much money into their "duracell" overpriced deep-cycle batteries, to find that they are not only bad performance batteries, but are fakes.

I would be drawn into court in a second if I were lying.

NON-Duracell Deep Cycle Batteries are deceptively being sold with the Duracell label. I found out about this scam due to the need to ascertain the PWM of the sligc125 batteries they sold me. The Batteries Plus agent didn't know so I called Duracell (which you can also do to verify this fact). Duracell stated that the batteries are not made by them and that Batteries PLUS simply bought the label (WHATEVER THE HE that means). BUT THE PLOT THICKENS! I then called back to Batteries Plus and this time an agent pointed me to Deka Battery's website stating that Deka actually makes the battery that is labelled as Duracell sold by Batteries Plus.

If I wanted a Dekka Battery I would have purchased a Dekka Battery.

Deception is criminal, when the upper elites are aiming their guns to the average citizen. Seems they are busy judging our every move and thought, yet when BUSINESS is involved these days, it's a virtually untouchable matter unless you have many hours to toss your life toward stopping the deceptive practices of business.

Imagine if this scenario played out at our level, me to you for instance. If you came to me and purchased a Dell computer, and I even tell you in the sales pitch it's a Dell computer, and the label in the front of the computer is an authentic dell computer emblem, wouldn't you be completely beside yourself if much later you found it to be a crappy-brand-computer and not a Dell? I'm not saying scams like this don't exist at the street-level of the class system, but what example does business or polity (or the ever-present judiciary) set to the rest of us by these deceptive practices? What does one tell the next generation, Don't steal or Defraud others (and then mum's the word when the upper class is doling out just that)?

This is the myopia of business in 2018. My advice to business would be, "kick rocks", time's are tough for all of us but to lose all of us would be the loss of all business. The adage "You never know a good thing till its gone" applies. It may not be great, but its still better than you're going to find with US gone. (*I actually am paraphrasing Revelations, primarily the part of what happens to the whore that runs off to the desert place...in short, it would have been better had they died with the rest of us, go figure).

Bad business begets bad business. Changing names is deceptive (and USED to be illegal).

This video was made at the end of 2014. That period marks an all-out attack that was partially documented and recorded and found elsewhere in this website. To this date, I'm clueless as to why the broad attacks were made against me. If I've learned anything, it's that there is a department (possibly the military) that really is under central control (of everything, least of which is our Internet communications).
