Poor man pays twice

published

Don't be a fool like I was, don't be lured by the price. If you want proper batteries you need to pay proper money. If you get more than 18 months out of these 140ah batteries I would be surprised. warranty, non existent." Poor man pays twice." The reason I gave one star is because there is nothing smaller.

The maximum operating temperature for Staunchcell gel batteries is 60 degrees C. Their life is rated at 1600 cycles at 50% discharge, ie the battery always remains at least 50 % full. Sold by Solaronline.

Battery works just...

published

I brought the 140ah battery a few months ago, I have excellent dual Battery system setup that runs other batteries well. This battery with 140ha will get fully charged and will last about 6 hours absolutely max with just a 20lt fridge. I now use a 100ah that will last 3 days easily with a fridge freezer, many lights and phones/speakers charging. Wouldn't recommend

Be warned .... Stay well away!!!!!!!

published

Nathan Gathercole, the director of this company has set up multiple companies to avoid responsibility for his product and installation. They installed an off grid solar system for us that never met the promised criteria. We took them to NCAT and won $50,000 in compensation, shortly there after Nathan liquidated the company and we were left out of pocket with a dud system that does not meet our needs.
Further Nathan's company did not have a licence to provide the off grid system in NSW.
He is still trading under several companies so beware!

No customer service, bought $40 000 off the grid system, in one year, faults with inverter, no replies from support.

published

I thought I was going with a solid company, after spending $40G and installing 3 inverters / battery bank, etc; No customer service, I'm having ongoing weekly faults with on of the slave inverters, no replies from support. Reputation is everything! It's been over 2 months I've been waiting for a reply from their customer service.

No Support

published

After having a brand new camper built to our specifications in November 2015, we thought we would had made a sound investment. Our camper was fitted with a Giant Power IPS800 power unit, which on a recent trip started producing an error code when plugged into 240 supply. After many phone calls to Giant and leaving messages with the promise of a return call that never eventuates , I was told by the receptionist that as the unit was not purchased directly from them they cannot help me and cannot supply me with a copy of the manual. Seriously you are the manufacturer and you don’t support your own product? Will be removing this unit and replacing with a Redarc unit.

Dodgy equipment poor customer service.

published

Inverter broken they have taken weeks to give an answer on a replacement.
there warranty is contravene to consumer law and they try to give you the run around.
Terrible products that trip and fail constantly.
advise to shop around and find solar that actually works.
Giant power makes you feel like Australia should go nuclear.

Batteries failed after a short time. Communicating with the company was difficult. Slow to return calls, hard to get answers from them.

Absolute shocking mob.........stay clear.

published

Absolute shocking after sales service. Had a problem with a 20 amp $200 battery charger. 12 weeks later and not one phone call returned or e mail answered back. Get to reception they outright refuse to put you through to anyone in management. Was told at the first conversation should only take a couple of weeks. Last call to reception told product was referred back to supplier and they will not be refunding or sending a replacement????? after acknowledging the faulty product. Going to consumer affairs with this. And this is over a $200 charger......imagine trying to get warranty on a big system..........Stay clear people...

I’ve got two 140 amp batteries in parallel wondering what maximum current would be for charging

1 answer
Mark
Mark

I *think* maximum charging current is about 20-25% of the available supply current, so you'd be pretty safe at 28 amps x 2 because in parallel = 56 amps. The batteries will still charge at lower current, but will take a little longer.
Google is probably a better source of information rather than asking on Productreview.
