Victron Inverters & Battery Balancers
Victron Quattro/MultiPlus 48V, 5kW Inverter Charger: These are manufactured in the Netherlands, the Quattro & MultiPlus are both combined inverter and charger in one elegant package. It's many features include a true sine wave inverter, adaptive charging, hybrid Power Assist technology, plus multiple system integration features, a Victron Phoenix Pure Sine Wave Inverter cost start from approx. $1'850.00 for a 3kW inverter, orders P.O.A.
Models: 3kW, 5kW, 8kW, 10kW & 15kw inverter units.
Come manufacturers use VA as there power rating, 1000VA = 1kW when converting at 100%.
Top of the range Victron Quattro or MultiPlus 48-volt 5000-VA inverter charger with 70~200-amp battery charging and 100A AC transfer capability compatible with all batteries including Lithium.

Victron Battery Balancer equalizes the state of charge of two series connected 12 V batteries, or of several parallel strings of series connected batteries, costs approx. $100.00.
The service life of an expensive battery bank can be substantially shortened due to state of charge unbalance. One battery with a slightly higher internal leakage current in a 24V or 48V bank of several series/parallel connected batteries will cause under-charge of that battery and parallel connected batteries, and over-charge of the series connected batteries.
Moreover, when new cells or batteries are connected in series, they should all have the same initial state of charge. Small differences will be ironed out during absorption or equalize charging, but large differences will result in damage due to excessive gassing (caused by overcharging) of the batteries with the higher initial state of charge and sulphating (caused by undercharging) of the batteries with the lower initial state of charge.
The Battery Balancer equalizes the state of charge of two series connected 12V batteries, or of several parallel strings of series connected batteries. When the charge voltage of a 24V battery system increases to more than 27V, the Battery Balancer will turn on and compare the voltage over the two series connected batteries. The Battery Balancer will draw a current of up to 1A from the battery (or parallel connected batteries) with the highest voltage. The resulting charge current differential will ensure that all batteries will converge to the same state of charge.
If needed, several balancers can be paralleled. A 48V battery bank can be balanced with three Battery Balancers.
