Bimblesolar were fantastic, I was wary of buying from them as it seemed to good to be true but eventually gave it a go and I couldn't be happier. they are happy to help with good advice, and delivered promptly some fantastic panels. I highly recommend them.
Great service - called just after I placed the order to check on something and was given an answer. Products arrived the next working day and are of a high quality. The Yuasa 50Ah battery is particularly good.
Grant at Bimble Solar was brilliant
First class service
Victron range of small Lithium batteries for small off grid set-ups that want to use Lithium batteries. Ideal for light weight solutions. 70% small and 70% lighter than Lead acid batteries.
For multiple batteries it is imperative that you purchase the BMS, Battery Management System, to go with these batteries. You will kill them quickly if you don’t use one. We have the BMS here.
Lithium-iron-phosphate (LiFePO4 or LFP) is the safest of the mainstream li-ion battery types. The nominal voltage of a LFP cell is 3,2V (lead-acid: 2V/cell). A 12,8V LFP battery therefore consists of 4 cells connected in series; and a 25,6V battery consists of 8 cells connected in series.
These batteries have integrated Cell Balancing, Temperature and Voltage control (BTV). Up to ten batteries can be paralleled and up to four batteries can be series connected (BTV’s are simply daisy-chained) so that a 48V battery bank of up to 2000Ah can be assembled. The daisy-chained BTV’s must be connected to a Victron battery management system (BMS).
