16 x 200ah batteries in series/parallel to 24v are the heart of my off grid solar system.
I'm running 240v power and 24v lighting off these batteries and believe me with 3 teenage kids and their electronic devices, induction stove, fridge, freezer, coffee machine, tv's etc. the system gets loaded up every day.
So the investment in batteries adds up to about Aud $12,000, and the investment in Infinitum desulfators equates to about Aud $600. It really is a no brainer, so much protection for so little outlay.
My batteries are in excellent condition, and continue to perform, we're in the middle of winter right now, with limited PV input hours. I fire up the backup generator about once a month, just to make sure it's ready if needed, apart from that, these batteries have no other input.
Last winter we didn't need the generator, so far this winter we haven't needed it either. I'm confident the system is providing my family's needs and the desulfators are an integral part of that system.
