    I didn't think so... I'm still trying to learn how to integrate solar panels with different battery packs. I have 4 deep cell Pb acid batts to make one battery bank with, and then the retired Nissan Leaf bank to make another one. I was going to make the Pb acid bank a separate 12 volt system, and keep the Nissan bank a separate high 110 volt system. I'm researching different solar converters/chargers now. I have a lot to learn still on how to tie it all together. Sorry for taking your thread off topic!!

    It's OK, lets start a DIY Powerwall discussion, that's basically what it is you're trying to do, right?

    Good idea. Ya, except with multiple power wall banks. Have to keep them isolated. I'll be contacting you soon about setting up the Sevcon. My battbox is 1/2 done.
