    Hi all,

    There's a few of us going the DIY Battery setup and preferring to stay away from a Hybrid Inverter and use the Sofar unit (essentially a battery charger controller).

    I thought it would be an idea to pull all Sofar related queries out of the Battery Options thread where they could get lost.

    Here's the manual

    I'm installing one soon so will post pics and no doubt some queries.

    I've gone for it as long term I want two inverters across 4 strings and I want functionality to take excess from both inverters to charge my 20kWh DIY battery pack. I also want to have easy control over EDDI and ZAPPI diverters
