Batteries for Solar storage

The options for batteries for solar storage is increasing everyday as most of us look for energy independance and more savings. The most important decision to make is what battery should I install for solar storage. The batteries for solar storage can be categorised by chemistry into Lead Acid and Lithium.

Lead Acid Batteries

Lead Acid batteries have been used longer than any other battery chemistry type in the market. Because of this they are more affordable than other battery chemistry types. The lead acid's can further classified into Flooded cell, AGM, Gel and Lead Carbon respectively. People who want a storage battery whose performance, reliability, safety are well established & understood in real world situations and has low up front costs, should consider lead acid batteries.

Lithium Batteries

Lithium batteries are fast gaining pace in the energy storage industry as the battery to take over from the lead acids. On the whole lithium's are more robust, can tolerate deeper discharge rates and provide large amounts of power instantaneously. Therefore people who want the battery with the mentioned features and are ready to invest more money into their energy storage should consider Lithium Batteries.

    Product Information
    Manufactured by Sacred Sun in China, the company was founded in 1991. They manufacture a variety of battery technologies for solar, backup, grid-level storage, electric vehicles and telecommunications. These batteries feature the latest advancements in lead carbon technology. They offer superior cycle life and the ability to discharge further (hence use more of your battery) than traditional Lead Acid Batteries. They are also more suitable for partial state of charge (P.S.O.C) applications such as solar where the batteries might not reach 100% charge every day. These batteries are the best off-grid batteries available and are an excellent choice for all solar applications.
