Cell Imbalance

Hi, I’ve recently purchased two 200ah victron smart batteries. The cell status says “imbalance “ should I be worried?
Cells 1,3 & 4 read 3.33 and cell 2 reads 3.30.

Kaufentscheidung: Multiplus 12v-3000 oder Multiplus II 12v -3000

Kann mir jemand die Entscheidung abnehmen ;-)

Wo sind die Unterschiede bei den beiden Geräten? Lohnt es sich überhaupt noch den Multiplus zu kaufen, da er ja schon ein paar Jahre auf dem Markt ist? Laut Datenblatt tun sich die beiden Geräte nicht viel, der Multiplus II wäre günstiger. Das Gerät soll in einem Kastenwagen eingebaut werden. Die Stromquellen sind Landstrom, Solar und Batterie.

Victron MultiPlus C 12/1600/70-16 no longer works / Victron MultiPlus C 12/1600/70-16 funktioniert nicht mehr

Hello Forum,

I have a problem with my Victron MultiPlus C 12/1600/70-16 and cannot find a solution in the manual.

Until now my solar system was running without any problems but suddenly the Victron MultiPlus stopped working.

It is simply off and when I try to switch it on, the red alarm diode flashes a few times and then it is again without function (off).

I have already disconnected it from the battery for 1 hour, removed the AC in and out cables and checked the fuse on the battery cable.

Hopefully you can help me.




Hallo Forum,

ich habe ein Problem mit meinem Victron MultiPlus C 12/1600/70-16 und kann im Handbuch keine Lösung dazu finden.

Bisher lief meine Solaranlage ohne Probleme aber plötzlich stellte der Victron MultiPlus seinen Dienst ein.

Er ist einfach aus und wenn ich ihn versuche einzuschalten blinkt ein paar mal die rotr Alarmdiode und dann ist er wieder ohne Funktion (aus).

Ich habe ihn bereits für 1 h von der Batterie getrennt, die AC in und out Kabel entfernt und die Sicherung am Batteriekabel geprüft.

Hoffentlich könnt ihr mir helfen.

De positie van Victron

Goedemiddag forumleden,

(Wanneer ik dit hier niet mag posten, zou dit bericht dat weer kunnen worden verwijderd?)

Ik ben Patrick van der Wal, 23 jaar oud en momenteel studeer in Ondernemerschap & Retailmanagement aan de Hanze Hogeschool in Groningen. Voor een tweedejaars project hebben wij de opdracht gekregen om de externe omgeving van een bedrijf naar keuze in kaart te brengen. De blauwe kastjes in onze zeilboot vielen mij altijd al op en van het een kwam het ander. Een onderdeel van dit onderzoek is dat ik het customer relevancy model moet invullen waarmee ik voor mijn opdracht het bedrijf zou kunnen positioneren binnen de markt.

Nu is mijn concrete vraag aan de 'fans' van Victron, wat vinden jullie belangrijk punten bij de volgende elementen: toegankelijkheid (bijvoorbeeld altijd en overal kopen/fysieke winkels), beleving (aanbieden van interessante content/ contact met de community (zoals dit forum)), prijs (laagste prijs garantie/gepersonaliseerd/ locatie afhakelijk?), product (breedte en diepte van assortiment, uitgebreide infromatie, vergelijk optie?) en service (spaarprogramma, persoonlijke service, live chatten met experts garantie?). En op welke punten vinden jullie dat Victron echt uitblinkt? Om het te vertalen naar een praktijkvoorbeeld: Jumbo supermarkt blinkt bijvoorbeeld uit in de laagste prijs voor A-merken gekoppeld aan een zeer uitgebreid assortiment.

Nogmaals: wanneer dit niet mag, schroom dan niet op dit bericht weer te verwijderen! Anders ben ik zeer benieuwd naar jullie meningen en helpen jullie mij verder met het behalen van mijn EC's. En misschien heeft Victron ook nog iets aan mijn uitkomsten haha!

Fijn weekend en alvast zeer bedankt

Model selection needed - Also Input Voltage 120V versus 230V. Help please.

In my RV, I currently have 12V battery and 120V "shorepower". My generator is Onan 10KV "Quiet Diesel", configured to output 120V.
The inverter for this system is junk. It does not "power share" and it's constantly breaking down.
I am also considering a new airconditioning system that requires 240V (US Standard).

So, there are a couple of background situations.
1) I can easily reconfigure my generator to 240V output (240V on two 120V output "legs"). My shore power cord and transfer switch are already configured to handle 240V but the actual feed into my current inverter-charger is single-leg 120V.
2) I will need to install new 240V wiring to the new airconditioning system from a new 240/230V interter charger. No problem.
3) I have approx. 700 Amp/hr of battery capacity (AGM, 12V). This battery bank would be easily reconfigured to 24V by recabling pairs in series. Again, no problem.

My technical issue : Frequently, I find that I'm limited to 120V input on the road. This can be 15Amp/120v (ordinary household current outlet) or 30Amp/120V ("TT" RV connector). I have 240V service at my home shop/garage and many RV parks have 240V outlets, but not all.
So, a basic question, Does Victron make an RV-suitable unit with about 4KW, 240V output that will accept either 120V or 240V shorepower/generator input? If so, which Victron model will do this?

Assuming the answer is no, what's the best arrangement?
Using a 120V - 240V transformer with a 240V inverter charger (with 240V input from the generator) and running a normal 240V house system from there? With load-balanced split legs for house 120V circuits and 240V to the airconditioning system.
Or use a 120V inverter charger, continue to use 120V from the shore power and generator, with a 120V - 240V transformer fed from the inverter-charger output to power the airconditioner system?
(All the above considers the battery bank configured for 24V). Which Victron model inverter would be best?

Thank you. I look forward to converting to Victron for my RV power needs.

MPPT sizing qustion
I just want to be sure about the correct Victron MMPT solar controller to choose. I will have 4 solar panels at 320W and 33.7V Imp wired in series. [Full specs below.] I believe I need to go with the 250/100 MPPT because I would have 40.1V Short Circuit Current (40.1V x 4 = 160.4V). I did use the Victron MPPT Calculator, but I just want to verify. Thanks.

Hoping for opinions on full Victron RV system plan

Dear all,

as I am new with all Victron components and quite francly electrics in general, I would really appreciate some opinions on my system plan. I have already put a lot of effort into this and read lots of articles and info but in the end every system is individual in itself and I am by far no expert yet.

I am planning to install all this into a bus that I am currently converting into an RV in Germany. I'm saying that to make clear that there is no current "house electricity" in the bus except cables throughout the walls to all appliances and outputs. For all 12V wiring I ran positive AND negative wires, so I guess the Orion DCDC converter might be an unneeded add-on in my case.

I don't really have many specific questions anymore. I was more hoping for someone with experience in Victron equipment to approve/or help improve my plan.

The only specific questions I am left with concerns the 4A trickle charge output of the Multiplus. Is it okay to just hook this up to my start battery positiv or do I need to be concerned about overcharging this battery once full?

I thank everyone who might get involved and look forward to any input you all might have.

MultiPlus Compact - second battery connection - charge function?


I have a Multiple Compact 800 24v with the secondary output connected to start battery to trickle charge when parked up.

Question - does the 800 only power the second battery output when AC is connected or does it also take power from the primary connection (leisure batteries) to cross charge the secondary battery when the AC is off?

Reason for asking is that it seems to work the second way as I see current flowing to the secondary connection even with AC off!

Victron app incorrectly indicating low panel voltage and charger not charging.

My 100/50 controller has been working flawlessly. One day, it failed to charge, even though there was plenty of sun and my batteries needed it. The app indicated that the controller status was OFF and that the panel voltage was lower than the battery level, which didn't make sense. I removed the panel wires at the controller and saw that the panels were providing over 20 volts, and not the 12+ volts that the app indicated. I unplugged the panels and batteries from the controller, waited, then reconnected everything. The controller immediately started to work properly, charging my batteries, and worked fine for a couple of weeks...until today.

Today, the app indicated the earlier problem. My batteries were in the neighborhood of 12.50 volts, and the app indicated that the panels were only providing something like 12.47 volts, even though it was very sunny. I again disconnected the panel input wire right at the controller and saw that the panels were actually providing well over 20 volts. I again disconnected both the panel input and batteries from the controller, waited, and reconnected everything, however the controller still won't charge and the app is indicating that the panel voltage is again just under the battery voltage. Thoughts?

Product request - Smart BMS CL 24/100

Lately we have many requests for installing big RVs with big 24V alternators (100A or more) and also more than 400Ah or more of lithium batteries.

With lithium batteries you should use a DCDC-charger but if you want to (or have to) charge the batteries from the alternator as fast as possible you have to install 2, 3 or more Orion-TR Smart or use 2 BuckBoost 100A (which is way to expensive).

So it would be great to have an easy way to limit the current like it is possible in 12V vehicles with the Smart BMS CL 12/100.

The Orion-Tr Smart DC-DC charger non-isolated was suggested But I can’t find any documentation as to how it would fit this scenario.
