Charging Duracell AGM with Victron Smartsolar


Just to be clear, use of "local" above is I believe intended to mean ambient at the SC, internal sensor

"remote" then being "at the bank".

Note the SC should be installed quite close to the bank anyway.

But I believe at least for the smaller units, the internal - sensor compensation mechanism just doesn't work properly, if implemented at all?

So in effect you need the add-on sensor in any case.


Well, my charge controller is inside the van and my batteries are underneath the van where the spare tire was previously. I’m sure interior temps in the closed van can easily be at least 20 degrees difference, which is why I chose the remote sensor.
