Got the cells in the floor

I want to dance but my oscillating saw did all the hard work so I gave it the night off.

3.2v 400ah, supposed to be 48v but customs/manufacturer ‘lost’ 2 cells en route.

Luckily my inverter will handle everything from 41v+
Hoping for ~7 days of off-grid power ��
Maybe I’ll do solar next spring

Looks like an interesting place to mount them. I presume cooling them is okay? How do you plan to charge them until you get solar in place?

I have a 7500watt generator that puts out 50a

Should take just a few hours a week to keep them up

My brother worked for Schneider electric for awhile
Says the air should circulate sufficiently or he’ll get parts/service taken care of.

Thanks for the comments!
