    So the 200ah battery wouldn't charge fully is all? And over a few weeks on trickle charge not eventually ?

    Mecer 2400VA Inverter (Community Support)

    I have the 24V with a 100ah and a 200ah battery in series. I know it's unbalanced and a terrible bad idea but what are the consequences when the mecer starts charging? Wouldn't it stop once the voltage stabilizes at about 27.4v across the board or will it fry the battery that is only 100ah ...

    Afrihost Pure VOIP

    I had the same problem with Axxess. They have to set it on their side. None of the ring settings or timeouts on your device make any difference (mine is a Grandstream ATA)

    Grandstream HT812 ATA Setup for MWEB Talk

    Did you ever resolve this? I can make and receive calls but it also suddenly started ringing continuously for no reason.

    Telkom email settings

    I would so get away from that email address. There is no support and they losing legit emails because Telkom have blocked the entire ranges of other ISP's - some of which are running corporate MTA's (mail servers).

    Do you enjoy dubbed and/or subbed movies and series?

    Dubbed can be OK. Alf was much more funny in Afrikaans than the original English.

    Hmm, could also be something went wrong with the charge circuit and it over charged the hell out of them. I would have it checked/tested before destroying a new set of batteries.

    Ellies inverter

    I don't think they that bad. I have the older 2000VA unit which got given a dead short on the output and all it needed was a "hidden" fuse at the back replaced. My Mecer 2400VA on the other hand was toast and half the trannies blown inside when the same thing happened. So much for "Short...

    From what i've read it's always good practise to have a breaker/fuse between battery banks. If one battery goes wrong, develops an internal short or something, horrible things can happen. Especially true of banks in parallel.

    Ellies inverter issue with TV and monitors

    I have the Ellies 2400VA /1440w and my TV also goes off (into standby) when the power cuts and i have to switch it back on again, but its fine and works perfectly after that. I just assumed the inverter was too slow in kicking in for the TV. My HTPC, amp and everything else doesn't seem to...

    I would have put the fuse/breaker between the 2 batteries (3rd pic 3.jpg) as opposed to between the inverter and battery bank. It's 24v so if something goes wrong and there is a massive current draw if it breaks between the 2 batteries it essentially cuts the supply completely.
