Are the 130amp batteries set up in parallel?

Is solar the only charging source?

The large storage you have helps as batteries would rarely get below 80% so recover quickly on charge.

The usual 100amp battery that people discharge to 50% each night die early and given poor performance as being used incorrectly IMHO

I still have my rigid folding panels but have moved to a blanket type for size and convienance.

Output of this job has been good and you can get them for around the low 300 dollar mark when on special.

Like the small size and can throw it on the roof of the car / canopy / bonnet and windscreen.

All I use these days
