I currently have a small, off grid solar system - 100amp deep cycle sealed lead acid battery, 100 watt foldable solar panel, 20A charge controller and a 12V/750watt power inverter.
The power inverter is currently connected directly to the battery but I am concerned about over discharge if there are multiple consecutive cloudy days.
I purchased a 100A Victron battery protect. I am confused as to how to connect it to the battery and power inverter in order for it to prevent the battery from being over discharged.
- Does the power inverter connect to the battery protect and then the battery connect to the battery?
- Which connection do I use on the battery connect - IN or OUT?
- Where does the battery connect negative/black wire connect?
