And let me hijack my own thread  :giggle:

Can one convert these, or just use 12V battery supply only, and not 48V? If that is the case, I would be keen on one of these for myself, but 48V is just not a cost effective viable option for my application.

Nope, it's 48V inverter, period. Buy a single 48V Lithium battery and you'll be happy for a loooooong time.

Unfortunately, not Li compatible.
From the manual:
NOTE: Please only use sealed lead acid battery or sealed GEL/AGM lead-acid battery.

The new Lithium Ion Phosphate LIFEPO4 generation of batteries work.
Their charging cycles are controlled by the built in BMS(BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM)
Prices aren't too bad as well.

Definitely worth going for this option.
12V 4kw is over 300A DC!

Thank you for all the assistance gentleman.
There is a for sale advert for these now on the open sales section.
