Hi guys, I've just reconnected my multiplus inverter charger after 14 months to slow charge my batteries but can't find my VE Bus connected anywhere.  Does anybody know if I can reset it all back to the manufacturers setting via dip switches or reset button inside as I think this charger was limited to 6amp genny input and can't connect it to my computer to tell.  It's been charging for 20hrs now and still on bulk cycle and used about 18kw from the mains.

Or on a slightly longer shot...  Is there anybody in South Wales who has one I can borrow for an hour?

Cheers

If its used 18kWh then its also charged the batts by that amount minus the efficiency losses.

Using a higher charge amps wont have changed that usage / charge ratio by much.

Thanks just me, I'm ready the manual now and it's pulling a constant 2kw I seem to remember limiting it now but I'm also now wondering if this maybe the best for my batteries as they had "issues" and a long slow charger is perhaps the best?  I have found in the book that I can change the charger to whatever I want via the dip switches but I may just leave as it is...

Cheers
