that is the most of it. So if you overtax the batteries the voltage will crash and the inverter will reset. Good to know about the electrolyte learn something everyday..

Those are great questions. First, there is no 'burning' of the saltwater electrolyte. They are sealed and never require any maintenance.
As I mentioned in a previous mail, our batteries are 500W each, continuous power, so that particular comment is fairly accurate. 3-4 of our stacks match the capacity of one Discover (~7.2 kWhs). But that one Discover can handle load of 7kW (if your inverter is that large), which will cover a lot of surges! 3-4 of our Saltwater batteries want to see about 1.5-2.0kW continuous charging/discharging. 8 Saltwater will want to see roughly 4kW. Your 2 Discovers will not flinch at loads up to 14kW. Our saltwater (and Aquion) are 48V batteries with a continuous charge / discharge of roughly 10amps (~500W). They can surge up to 20amps for a few seconds.
Love their fast and thorough response. Not sure my hub will love the less fast and less thorough response of the batteries, though...
Do you know -- if we have a backup generator, does this just mean that with power surges (well pump, power tools, etc), if we overtax the batteries, the whole house backup generator will kick in? Or is it going to be a pain in the neck when we get big surges, with shutdowns & reset etc?

The Electrodacus BMS I have is rated for 12/24 volts not for 48 volts unfortunately. This is one of the biggest complaints about it otherwise it’s a amazing device. Any suggestions on BMS rated for 48 volts? Thanks
