The question on everybody’s mind is how that fancy lithium battery bank did. SO let’s get to it.
It did great!
While anchored we purposely weren’t careful about how much power we used, running everything, including the heater, as often as we wished. On average we were in the hole about 40 Ah each sunrise. I can’t tell you the total power we used each day because the solar panels charge the batteries and supply most of our needs during the summer daylight. At our next anchorage I’ll turn off the solar charging to get some meaningful numbers on usage.
The whole system worked very well and I really like monitoring all the activity on my iPad using the Victron app.
On a side note, the 30A DC-DC charger also worked great. This device charges the lithium bank, but for specific reasons only while the engine is running. More about that in the next battery update.
