I am just looking for the right resistor to buy. In the article is written 7Ohm, more than 30W @12V. 
I found this one here https://www.reichelt.de/dickschichtwiderstand-radial-30-w-8-ohm-1--cad-mp930-8-00-p236935.html  

Can I use it for precharging a Victron Multiplus Inverter?

 

 

 

That will work for a 12 volt installation (actually about 13.2 volt).

Pre-charge current will be: 13.2 volt / 8 Ohm = 1.65 A

And power dissipated = 13.2 x 1.65 = 22 W
