    I built up my new 100AH battery pack tonight and it was so easy. Next step is to wire up a BMS that should be here in two days.

    If anybody is looking to build their own packs and save a few bucks this seems to be a very good option.

    If you want to get that BMS cheaper and don’t mind waiting you can order it here: http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/l5hk5UVw

    Information came from https://www.mobile-solarpower.com/


    I will update this thread with the install pics this weekend.

    You can really use any charger you want but one that supports lithium batteries is best.

    I went with the Victron IP67 at 17 Amps.
