Where is the DC power usage coming from ?

I have a Mastervolt Chargemaster plus 24/60 charger, 100 x 4 lithium batteries, a Victron BMV-712, A Cerbo GX, Cerbo HD Touch and a small Victron Phenix 250w inverter (only for TV´s and stereo) in my setup on my boat.

The inverter is NOT having any load. All connected devices is OFF and the Cerbo is showing 0 load from the inverter.

The BMV shunt is connected after the batteries before the load and the charger.

In the picture you can see that the batteries are full and that there is NO load (0w and 0.0A) from the batteries. So to the question: Where does the DC Power of 69W coming from ?


I understand that the Inverter can be using upto 8 watt in zero load, but there is a big difference between 8 and 69 watt ;)


Thanks :)

I assume you do not have a DC system installed.

There is setting to check .... If this is enabled then it will show usage. It should then show self consumption as ac loads.
