Trimetric Meter Readings

I've installed a Trimetric Battery Monitor in conjunction with a solar system to watch battery activity. Recently I have noticed readings of 100 to 115% battery state of charge. How can a battery be more than 100% full? might I have something wired wrong?

Doesn't your manual explain why the difference or their web site?
Here is something on batteries that may help you.

I don't have a Trimetric monitor but have a Xantrex battery monitor. Mine must be configured to my battery bank size, type etc. May be yours requires the same programing. Check your instructions that came with the unit.

The trimetuc manual speaks to this I believe. Has to do with battery type and voltage settings. Different types of batteries are differing voltages when 'full'. The trimetric is looking at the battery voltage to determine when full

There was another thread on this topic a few weeks ago. Search to find and it may offer additional insight as well.
