  1. I always fancied a Whispergen, inefficient battery charger, but, it could run for hours on end in near silence and as a bonus produce hot water. Though I never fancied the £5k price!

  8. When I designed and fitted out Innisfree in 2005 I decided to fit as many batts as poss across the back cabin, this worked out at 8x110ah FLAs, along with with 200amp alternator this proved very effective, approx 2hrs charging daily to keep between 50 & 80% SoC + a weekly 8hr absorption with the Kipor 2kw genny proved sufficient for full time living off grid, microwave, fridge tv etc etc, generous power consumption, better still was our 2nd set of batts, 8x120ah AGMs, they took abuse and lasted 7yrs, lithium would have been ideal if they'd been available then.

  22. I'm guessing the SG compares discharge rate and pattern with known ones from a similar type of battery, it then makes a guess at SoC, after a few charge/discharge cycles it makes increasingly more accurate guesses based on more comparisons. A simple comparison meter, simple in principle but complex to achieve 🤣
  23. SmartGauge is designed to inform those who can't be arsed to use voltmeters etc and have more important things to do like drinking beer, an easy to use device to able see at a glance what the SoC is and therefore know when to start charging, a clever but simple fit and forget device, though I doubt Gibbo would say it was easy or simple to design 🤣
