Hi all,

Hoping someone can advise me please?
I got myself a Sofar ME3000SP for a very tasty price on eBay and was planning on running fla batteries in the mean time.
However at the moment I can only get my hands on a 24v 420ah battery, I will be a bake to get another one at some stage but itís a waiting game until itís available.

Is it possible to run with the 24v battery on my sofar charger for now?

Thanks for any input 👍🏻

No, as it requires a 48v (nominal) battery.

The acceptable battery voltage range is 42v to 58v.
