Simply Unbeatable | More Power in Less Space

Victron Energy Smart Battery Sense is a battery voltage and temperature sensor for Victron Energy SmartSolar MPPT charge controllers.  With voltage and temperature sense in place, batteries will be better charged; improving charging-efficiency and prolonging battery life.
 

Improves Battery Charging.

By measuring voltage at the battery bank terminals, errors arising from voltage-loss due to cable resistance are avoided - guaranteeing the correct charge-voltage.

 

Both for lead and lithium batteries.
 

For lead batteries; battery temperature data is used to adjust the charge-voltages: cold batteries require an increased charge-voltage, whereas hot batteries require a decreased charge-voltage.

 

For lithium batteries; battery temperature data is used to disable charging when they are too cold: charging lithium batteries near or below freezing causes permanent damage to the cells.
 

Look no wires.

The connection between Smart Battery Sense and one or more SmartSolar MPPT charge controller(s) is wireless: It uses the VE.Smart Network - a wireless technology based on Bluetooth Smart.

Information transmitted can be used simultaneously by one, two, or more SmartSolar controllers connected to the same 12V, 24V or 48V battery bank. The Smart Network is set up using the free VictronConnect app.

 

Tidy. Simple. Smart.

Installation is simple, quick and tidy. Just connect the unit's two eyelets to your battery terminals and attach the Smart Battery Sense unit directly onto the battery-body using the unit's self-adhesive strip.

SunPower 170W E-flex solar panels

So now I generally

don't bother hooking

up to shore power!

Thanks for all the help in planning my solar project for my boat. The two 170W flexible panels fit well on my Bimini and now I generally don't bother hooking up to shore power.  Although I haven’t had any long trips since my installation I have done a few day trips. And even with fridge, radio, plotters, autopilot and occasional radar it seems that these panels are keeping up with my usage. I did add some stiffener material to the back of the panels and attached the panels with zippers and they have survived a few 30 knot days and one night with winds gusting well over 55 knots. No damage at all and no signs of flexing problems. 

The advice and service has been great.  Thanks again.

high efficiency flexible solar panels

It made my project

work, thank you

Lyall and Katie are so knowledgeable.  I tried this project with a lesser quality panel and the project failed because it wasn't efficient enough. The SunPower® Maxeon Gen III cells are compact and simply kick out more Volts/Current than all the others on the market today.   And by using the SunPower® panel, everything was smooth and efficient.  I love my new 170W 29V 5.83A panel!!  It made my project work.   Thanks Lyall for all your knowledge in making this work.

Terrific customer service, patient, always responsive

The process of researching a solar solution for my Beneteau 41 was simplified & clearly understood once I discovered Sun Powered Yachts.  Terrific customer service, patient, always responsive with guidance and products that just work. Being a novice at setting up a solar system, I had many questions along the way, and the team at Sun Powered Yachts were always there to answers my questions and provide support.
