Good day friends.

Do you have experience with FELICITY INVERTERS, how efficient are their inverters?

Thank you.

An 800va Inverter, 250w solar panel and 200AH Battery

Poster on Nairaland asked this question.

Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by BasedOnB1:34pm

Hello everyone, i need some quick advice here please.

I have a 800 VA sukam inverter, a 250 W panel, and a 30 amps PWM controller. My current 150 AH battery is long due for replacement, so i am thinking of replacing it with a new 200 AH. My concern is that the panel may take too long to charge the battery full, even though i don’t intend to discharge it to more than 50%. Am i just better off with a smaller battery, say a 150 AH or 100 AH?

I also need recommendations on reliable battery brands to buy (preferably from experience), i kinda believe the so called ‘telecom’ batteries are solid, even if they are more expensive.

Reprobate:
so on luminous india site, they stated that the 220ah 12v flooded batt will last about 4hrs on 500w load , and 29hrs on 100watt load.
am a lil confused, assume I connect the following, which will last longer?

A. 2x 12v 220ah batt to a 1.5kva 24v inverter to power a 500w load

B. 1 X 12v 220ah batt to a 1.5kva 24v inverter to power a 500w load.

Can you correct B above ( 1 x12 V ) cannot be connected to 24 V inverter . Read more

Tracer 3210A vs Fangpusun 30/100

Gurus in the house, please which is better between Epever Tracer3210A and Fangpusun MPPT100/30A. I realize that they are both mppt cc and that the Epever has a screen while the Fangpusun requires an external display. Is there anyone here who has used both and can make informed comments about their real life performance. Thanks

I have used both controllers extensively below are my observations. Read more
