Battery Storage

As more solar systems come online, it becomes increasingly difficult and expensive, to ensure stability of the grid. Intermediate energy storage is therefore rapidly becoming an essential tool. The natural next step is 100% self-consumption and independence from the grid. Below are the types of solar batteries that we trust and sell for many applications.

Victron Energy Lithium LiFePO4

Why lithium ion phosphate?

Lithium-iron-phosphate (LiFePO4 or LFP) is the safest of the mainstream li-ion battery types. The nominal voltage of a LFP cell is 3,2V (lead-acid: 2V/cell). A 12,8V LFP battery therefore consists of 4 cells connected in series; and a 25,6V battery consists of 8 cells connected in series.

Powerplus Energy Lithium LiFePO4 Battery

The self managed LFP battery with internal BMS offers you a safe lithium option for any solution that requires reliability, ease of use and a product that outperforms others.

LFP batteries provide high energy density, light weight, durable and reliable energy storage. Solar and Storage, Battery Backup, Energy Shifting, Peak Lopping, UPS, Telecommunications, AC Coupling,DC Coupling, Off-Grid and On-Grid, the list is endless. No application is too big or too small. 

The Main Features are:

• Australian Designed & Engineered

• 1/3 the weight & size of lead acid batteries

• 10-year warranty

• Up to 10,000 cycles

Victron AGM Super Cycles

The AGM Super Cycle batteries are the result of recent battery electrochemistry developments. The paste of the positive plates is less sensitive to softening, even in case of repeated 100% discharge of the battery, and new additives to the electrolyte reduce sulfation in case of deep discharge.

The Main Features are:

• Low internal resistance

• Smaller & Lighter

• Exceptional (DoD) performance

Victron Lithium Superpacks

In several applications (especially off-grid solar), energy efficiency can be of crucial importance. The charge process of lead-acid batteries becomes particularly inefficient when the 80% state of charge has been reached, resulting in efficiencies of 50% or even less in solar systems where several days of reserve energy are required (battery operating in 70% to 100% charged state). In contrast, a Li-ion battery will still achieve 90% efficiency even under shallow discharge conditions.

The Main features are:

• Integrated BMS & safety switch

• Easy to install

• Abuse proof & efficient

• IP43 protection category

• Can be connected in parallel

Victron Standard GEL & AGM Deep Cycles

Great for someone that is budget conscious, the Victron range of AGM and Gel batteries ranges from a small 8Ah all the way up to 230Ah.

VRLA technology:

VRLA stands for Valve Regulated Lead Acid, which means that the batteries are sealed. Gas will escape through the safety valves only in case of overcharging or cell failure.

Main Features are:

• VRLA batteries are maintenance free for life.

• Exceptional Deep Discharge Recovery

• Low Self-Discharge
