Good Day All
I am looking at purchasing a Smart Orion-Tr 12/12, either the 18 or the 30Amp.
I currently have a 80Amp Alternator with a Lead Acid Starter Battery in my Land Rover Defender. I want to primarily charge using the DC DC charger and then I will have a separate MPPT for backup Portable Solar Charging.
I am just going to power some basic items like a small fridge and lights.
I want my Auxiliary battery to be 100Ah and I want to be able to use either a Lead Acid or Lithium in the future. I prefer the idea of the Lithium Battery but sometimes when you are in the middle of no where, it can be good to have a secondary starter battery. My concern is that the 30Amp is too much current for charging100Ah lead acid and that the 18Amp is not efficient enough for the Lithium Battery. Which unit would be the best?
Also I do not see a profile for lead acid on the VictronConnect App, how would one start to setup a profile for this?
