    Spare Victron 100A Battery protect

    I have a spare Spare Victron 100A Battery protect, long story. Is it worth connecting this to the main engine battery, (having the alternator as a direct connection to the battery, everything else connect via battery protect). Or just sell it on here as I'm asking for trouble? Cheers Ollie.

    Hi, Inspired by @Deaky build post, I was planning on installing a Victron IP65 Smart charger next to the Starter Battery and a 2nd one to charge the Leisure batter (110AH AGM).

    Is there any victron bluetooth experts on here? I have fitted an arduino and display in my van and would like to put a EHU CONNECTED warning on the display, in big flashing letters!

    Victron Orion - signal cable?

    Hi Guys, I installed my leisure battery today along with a Victron Orion B2B charger, looking at the manual it suggests I don’t need to run a signal cable to the fuse. I ran the cable anyway as I was not aware of this at the time. Does anyone have experience of using the fuse cable vs not...

    So, van has returned from its kitchen fit. All electrics now hooked up and every thing is working well, (so impressed with the Victron kit) except that I can't get my generated power to the battery. Kicking out 100W, the BVM reports no influx of juice. There's a plethora of settings in both the...

    Installing An Orion Tr-smart 12/12/30 Under Passenger Seat In A California Beach

    I've just taken delivery of the DC-DC charger and removed the passenger seat to see where it could be installed. There doesn't appear to be enough space under the seat and I was wondering if anyone had managed to fit this in a Beach?

    Victron Bvm-712 And Solar

    I know I’m asking more questions than answering presently Does the Victron BVM-712 also monitor the solar energy I’m producing? I can’t see it in the user manual other than reference to the omission of the -ve symbol in the ‘power’ menu of the display.
