You might have to cycle those new batteries deep (  50% ?)  a couple times before they start acting properly like you would expect a deep cycle battery to.

From the Trojan Industrial Line User's Guide: "Trojan batteries take 50 - 100 cycles to work up to providing full amp-hour capacity."
4800W PV in 2 circuits of 96V & 50A each after the Midnight combiner. Two Midnight Classic 200. MagnaSine 4448 split phase inverter on a Midnight e-panel. 700Ah or 900Ah FLA @ 48V. Birdhouse,WBjr, etc. Replaces 16-year-old off-grid full-time 408W PV & 300W Morningstar inverter.

Hi DEinME,

Am curious how those new Trojan IND batteries are doing.

Are  you able to achieve full-charge,  measured SGs,   using the standard Absorb voltage?

Any other observations on these batteries?

Thanks,   Vic
