Hi all,
  New to this solar off grid. I have read so much head about to explode. I have ten 12volt 80Amp AGM batteries. I'm not sure if I calculating this correctly for total Amp hour.
12vx80A=960Ahr   960Ahr x10=9,600Ahr then 9,600 x .50= 4,800 Total amp hour  is this correct or am I way off the mark in my calculations.

Depends on how they're wired up.  In parallel, simply add the AHs up (10 x 80 = 800ah, x 12v = 9600 WATT hours),  In series, don't add the amps, but add the volts (10 x 12v = 120v, x 80ah = 9600 WATT hours).    

9600 watt hrs = 9.6 kwh.  x .5 = 4.8 kwh, or about 50c worth of electricity after all that work [frown]
