after some research and chats with David from wildebus rather then store my lead battery away or sell them after a roamer 300ah lithium purchase I decided to give the hybrid a go with the vsdr device
And…. it’s working great . I’m using 460w solar to a mppt a b2b with 230ah lead one under the floor compartment one in the battery case .. 300 lithium with each battery to a bmv-712 also a multiplus 1600 x2 battery protects one to the mppt the other the loads
The vsdr is set to use the lithium bank first .. then the lead bank
All settings on the Victron are lead profiles
The only lithium profile is the bmv that runs to the lithium
Everything else is set for my banner lead acid
it’s working great 👍

Nice one. I'm just about to go hybrid, with a 200ah LifePO4 from Life to stand next to one of my existing 220a Gels Chosen because it has its own BMS and I'm going to run the bank direct from a dedicated 12v alternator.

The device that auto switches when the lithium is charged then goes over to the next bank is called the vsdr it was £150
All comes set up so it’s plug and play
positive to lead positive to lithium and wire to ground it’s set up 👍
