My Settings

I share here the settings of all devices I have configured for LiFePO4 batteries. As a beginner, it is very confusing to understand all these different options solar charge controllers, BMS, shunts and inverters can give you. I did not know where to start myself!
Through extensive testing with these batteries, I have now set these devices to a, for my set up, optimal state. Below you can find screenshots for these settings as well as the link to the video, where I explained them for this particular device. I go really into details in these videos so you will understand and be able to adapt these settings for your own needs and also different devices.
If you still have any questions, please leave them in the comment section of the relevant video so other viewers can help out as well.

Solar Charge Controller
Here are the settings for my Victron Solar Charge Controller but you can adapt these settings for any other controller as well.
Watch the full video here where I explain the settings in all details:

Important settings:
Absorption Voltage: 3.45V/cell
Float Voltage: 3.35V/cell
Absorption Time: 1h-2h

Here are all settings and functions for the JK-BMS I am using. I’m really going into details in this video and explain all menu points and also why I have set these settings as they are.

Victron Smart Shunt
In the video below, I show and explain all the settings and menus of the Victron Smart Shunt. For a quick reference, here is also a screenshot of my settings.

For the shunt to reset (re-calibrate) to 100%, the following three settings must be valid:
Charged Voltage must have reached the set value
Tail Current must fall under the set value
– both criterias above must be met for the set Charge detection time
You need to play around with these three settings for your own setup and see what works best.
