  1. Struggling Morso with back boiler

    Ive known a lot of these that ran much better with the baffle plate removed.
  2. ammeter

  3. Voltage drop when fridge turn on

    Checked my fridge on start up today, the voltage only dropped 0.1 volt.
  4. Silent Engines

    You have a link to this product ?.
  5. New fridge on. Start up

    I replaced our 12 volt freezer with a new 240 volt freezer, its on less often and for shorter periods and much better on electric consumption. The fridge will be next.
  6. volt meter

    I recently fitted a NASA BM2 , its really good.

    Really ?

    Probably just a couple of LED lights and the fridge if it decides to come on at the same time.

    So in that case, a NASA BM2 with a 200amp shunt wont cope ? The only reason I want to know is because Erindoors may want to dry her hair ( 2 - 3 minutes max ) in a morning and I want to know if a battery monitor with a 200 amp shunt would handle it. Apart fromthis short use of high power everything else on the boat is very low consumption stuff.

    I believe they are around 1500 watts to 2000 watts

    I meant what would be the amps drawn be whilst the hair drier is running ?.
  12. Sterling-NASA -Victron

    Thanks for all the replies, its a very busy thread this !. Another question, what would you say the amps draw would be for an "average" main hair drier powered by the inverter ?.

    Thanks everyone, Ive ordered a Pico.
  14. Sterling-NASA -Victron

    Thanks for all the replies. What I am actually wanting though is to be able to see the amps being drawn and put back into the battery bank rather than show a state of charge or accumulated amps totted up/down. Reading the Smartgauge write up, they do seem to have a point. Is there any decent simple good digital amp meters available ?, or can the NASA, Sterling & Victron models be used this way ? There are a lot of cheap prices amp meters with shunts on ebay, any good ? e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200V-200A-DC-Digital-LED-Amp-Volt-Combo-Meter-With-Shunt-for-HHO-EV-car-Solar-1-/161036443632?epid=1131939908&hash=item257e851ff0:g:s1MAAOSwnsZZgCfP

    Which one of these would you recommend for keeping an eye on amps used and put back into battery bank from Sterling PMP1 Victron BMV700 NASA BM2
