    Sneaky, last night it was R100 at checkout. Didn't buy because there were no stock in the JHB North area.

    Says Bluetooth, so it should. I would love to buy 2 for my retropi but the delivery doesn't deliver to JHB north. No stock around near by.

    Your Raspberry Pi Projects

    Anyone know where I can get a PI Zero W, most places are sold out or way to expensive?

    Mecer 2400VA Inverter (Community Support)

    Still not sold on connecting to the DB. Little benefit for me because I might move house soon. I currently have a make shift trolley but no plugs.

    Extra wiring would be needed I guess. Mecer is more plug and play

    I have a chance to get a RCT-Axpert 3k, should I? As mentioned above, I have 2 100ah and no current need to power kitchen appliances.

    Quick update. I bought 2 new batteries, looking good. 2 hours and I'm at 75%. Powering the similar load as mentioned before. https://www.geewiz.co.za/batteries/151364-enertec-blue-range-100ah-high-cycle-battery-674-stud-ec37-ec18-1250-12-volt.html

    Inverter usage

    I was thinking of wiring it up to the house db box but I'll need to get an electrician and honestly, it's an over kill for my setup. Any suggestions for a lighting solution? I'm thinking of buying a floor lamp.

    Inverter usage

    I'm sure the title doesn't match my description. I have a 2400va Mecer inverter with 2 100ah batteries. I currently power my server, floor lamp and TV. I have no need to power kitchen appliances. What do you use your inverter for?

    I have the same issue as @lilDeath. I'm running 2 100ah Gel Batteries, had my setup for close to 2 years now. Is it even worth having the batteries tested at battery centre? Or should I just buy 2 new batteries?

    Thanks man. I'm running 2 batteries. Suddenly they don't last 2 hours at most.
