adding a 330V battery to a Growatt grid inverter

I have a large number of major loads that can take DC instead of AC (inverter air con, all my EVs, later a heat pump HWS). Hi Matt, Have you actually done this?

Wow, good thread on batteries, inverter (and hack), iMiev... pretty much everything! It took me half a day just munching through the content! Anyhoo, any of the professionals here ever directly charge the iMiev (or Leaf) using DC high voltage (let say 300VDC)? Using DC to AC inverter is wasteful me ...

Ex better place / Victoria EV trial 2010 i-MiEVs

Hi all, Bumped to this thread by chance. I saw iMiev price at Mitsubishi Paceway at $18k and $17k and said to myself "WOW!! What a price". However, after reading this whole thread (got too much time), now I'm not so sure anymore. Can anyone help me with: How can you tell the state of the battery? Ca...
