lots of info,  Especially the part that suggests recharging at too low a level of discharge wastes energy.
Also graphs showing returned power at what state of the charging, I found interesting.
I have been worried about my new bank since I installed last summer, this has answered loads of Qs.

i know aimed at the forklift user, but good base for info.

thought it may have been of use to others, if not already read.
