Re: %/uQUVb+pg

@Aran I'll just buy both the battery and the connectors from the same shop to save on shipping. But it's good the know that shops also have good prices.

I live in Alto Paraíso de Goiás, which is about 250km from Brasilia. But there's lots of people from Goiânia, that's why I was searching there.

Thanks every one for all the help and advice, I've learned a lot, and finally ordered.

I payed express fee for the iPhone I ordered for the #mobile-ssb-quests, and it still hasn't arrived. Can't imagine how long this will take to deliver.

Re: %/uQUVb+pg

@Luandro just realised you said R$40 for a pair of connectors?! that's steep, maybe MercadoLivre would be better for those?

Re: %/uQUVb+pg

We originally had a single freedom 205Ah, then when that ones life was over we changed to Moura, but honestly we didn't find it any better, its useful life in fact was a bit shorter than the Freedom. So now we have 2x240Ah Freedom's which we paid about R$1000 each for.

MC4 connectors are the usual nowadays I think, we have those too, they're not necessary, but they do make things simpler since you can connect the panels all together like lego :-)

Do you live in Goiânia?

Re: %/uQUVb+pg

Thank you for the details @Aran.

I've found a battery shop in Goiânia, but the batteries seem a lot more expensive. They did have a 240Ah from Freedom for R$ 900,00, but the price for the Moura brand which is better was way over. So this is the final list I'm thinking on ordering:

  • Solar pump 276 at 396L/hour up to 42Mca Shurflo 8000-443-136 - R$500,00
  • 2X 270W Canadian Solar - CS6K-270P Panels - R$1138,00
  • Panel support for roof - R$350,00
  • Charge controller 40A 12V/24V MPPT SUN21 - MAX-M4024 - R$739,00
  • Cheap 400W 12V/127V Hayonik - modified wave inverter - R$176,00
  • 220Ah 12MF220 Battery - R$1109,00

They only seem to have the mc4 clip connector at R$40,00 a pair at the online shop I'm looking at. I guess I'll order at least two pairs to the two panels.
