Was also thinking about adding a plug in panel for more solar. Also I think I need to change my inverter when I upgrade my batteries to lithium, or will the one I have work?
Why don't you post the exact smart lithium drop-in batteries that you are considering, which solar charger and converter you have installed and which inverter is in your AS? This will help identify many tradeoffs that are likely to arise.
