Quote from: BlackwaterPark on November 24, 2021, 05:45:26 PMThanks for the response, Steve. Therefore, though I have the ability, and funds, I just don't have the time to delve into the research to do it proper...ergo; I have to rely on the experience of others, along with the trust that they know what they are talking about. That said, I've read many of your posts on the subject, and you seem to know a thing or two. I'll certainly read your links intently, bit let me pose a question to you: If you were going to build a battery system with your priorities being longevity, quality, and diagnostic/programability, and a coherent and active support network over cost considerations, how would you go about it?
Quote from: Steve_S on November 26, 2021, 03:47:54 AMI, personally don't use a "warmer" as I have a small powerhouse/pumphouse combo that I heat with a small recovered RV Furnace. Most people using warmers tend to go for the low voltage silicone warming pads with their own settable thermostats to keep them between 45-50F. Typically placing the pad underneath with an aluminium diffuser and works a treat without burning up much juice if all well insulated... no offgas so no issues in that area. I cannot recommend any personally but a lot of people are using them in the DIYSolar Forum.I'm not sure what you mean by heating wire, but if it's like Pipe Heat Tape or something like that, I would not be very comfortable with that.
