Some afterthoughts and observations

This is part of the Inverter Power project.

How is it working? I’ll let you know when we use it……

Someone brought up weight. The 6 batteries are light (28.7 pounds), the inverter charger is about 50 pounds, then there’s probably another 40 or so pounds of cable and wood. Call it 270 pounds. I didn’t weigh them but the seats that came out were not light. At least 220 or so pounds. So, the difference is negligible.

Even though I have exercised caution in design, the selection of materials and installation there is a LOT of energy in those plastic boxes, and it’s traveling through extensive cabling (relatively speaking), sometimes at fairly high volume. The highest risk, in my opinion, is the failure of a BMS, and there are SIX of them wrangling their respective cells. So if it runs away, it’s gonna be ugly. I have no illusion of putting out a fire, but I figured I put one of these within reach to buy me some time if it happens…..
