  • Calling All Ni-Fe OWNERS - REAL Nickel-Iron Results and Experience Requested Please

    [COLOR="#0000CD"][SIZE=2][B]Can we get Actual Owners of Ni-Fe to share their feedback with us on them?[/B][/SIZE][/COLOR] If you own Ni-Fe, please reply with useful feedback of your experience with this battery technology so we can learn from your experience. Some useful suggestions are:
    [LIST=1][*]System Details: Volts, Amp hours, PV, Charger, Loads, Time in service?[*][*]Discharge/Charge experience: Do you discharge deeper than 50%, if so How deep, how often, and how long? Maybe rate for us how hard your actual system is on them (Mild, Moderate, Brutal) and if they holding up to abuse as claimed? Any Charging/Discharging tips or advice?[*][*]General Maintenance: Watering frequency, tips, feedback? Please Note: Electrolyte refresh is a whole thread by itself, so lets break that topic out to it's own thread if needed. [*][*]Ni-Fe Rating: Has it been a Good or Bad experience owning Ni-Fe for you? Actual Pros/Cons from your Experience? [*][/LIST]
    These are just ideas/suggestions to get a useful Ni-Fe thread going, but feel free to include/share anything that may help others -[I] Based On Your Personal Experience with running Ni-Fe in your system please.
    [/I]
    [COLOR="#0000CD"][B]Thread Goal:[/COLOR] The Goal of this thread is to keep it Useful and to share Ni-Fe experience and feedback from Actual Owners.[/B] As such, Please No: Bashing, Attacks, Slander, Accusations, Lies, Sales, Drama - or any other Distractions [I](aka Noise)[/I] that somehow seem to derail otherwise potentially useful and good Ni-Fe threads.
    [COLOR="#0000CD"]
    [B]Thread Guideline:[/COLOR] This thread is requesting [I]Ni-Fe Owners [/I]to post Helpful Information and share Experience with others.[/B] I know Ni-Fe is a different animal and thus a very charged ([I]pun intended[/I] ) topic for some, [I]but Please keep Non-Owner Personal Opinions and Prejudice Out of this thread[/I]. Meaning - Please be Courteous of its intended goal and don't poison it with posts that are Not based on Actual Owner's Personal Experience with Ni-Fe. As such, if you're Not an Ni-Fe Owner and have to post - [I]Please keep it Short and to the Point.[/I]

    [COLOR="#0000CD"][B]Participant Request:[/B][/COLOR] Please kindly and promptly refer any posters who deviate from this [I]"Keep it Useful and Helpful"[/I] discussion direction back to the Thread Goal and Thread Guideline stated above in the initial post. Hopefully in doing so, it will help keep it on track by discouraging unnecessary noise from creeping in taking over.

    I (we) look forward to hearing from our Ni-Fe users and learning from your experience.

    Thanks!
    -SS

    Hi Spencer - Welcome but sure do like to try to set rules on your second post - love pushy types - not!

    If you follow a number of threads on various site the answer is there but better to have someone tidy it all up for you?

            Good riddance - seems that if you don't get your way you will take the ball and go home? No big deal.

              [FONT=Comic Sans MS]I do not think that anybody, regardless of their overall position in NiFe, will dispute that they do not bounce very well. [/FONT]
