Discrepancies in Technical Specifications

The more one starts to dig around in Victron documentation, the more discrepancies pop up.

I'd strongly suggest to establish something like a central knowledge base a.k.a. "semantic vault" - similar to wikidata and to generate from there. One (of many) examples:

https://www.victronenergy.com/media/pricelist/WEB_WithoutIP65_PricelistVictron2020-Q1.pdf

states a Quattro 48/10000 does weigh 45kg

https://www.victronenergy.com/upload/documents/Datasheet-Quattro-3kVA-15kVA-EN.pdf

speaks of 51kg. That's not what OCD'lers like me want to read. Moreover, said datasheet sugests that the Zero-Power of an 10kVA Quattro is the same like that of an 8kVA Quattro ... which looks unbelievable/also like an error.

I'm stumbling across this sort of errors all the time, and I do give feedback sometimes, but quite frankly: It's too much.

I suspect this is an unintended consequence of Victron being far more open with their community than any other company I know of. It would definitely be great to have a team at Victron HQ review everything on an ongoing basis and give us a contact point to raise these concerns with. @Guy Stewart (Victron Community Manager) knows of other such issues I've pointed out which are also as yet unresolved.
