You can buy Solar Batteries for your Solar Power System, a fundamental part of any Off-Grid or Hybrid solar system that requires backup power. Solar Batteries can store electricity for immediate use in the home or business.
The Main Solar Battery Types
The oldest option available the Lead-Acid battery has been in solar system for many years, there are variations under the Lead-Acid family.
AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) is the latest Lead-Acid technology available, they are better than the traditional Flood Lead-Acid option.
They are maintenance free, they don’t leak acid or fumes because they are completely sealed making them very stable.
The low discharge rate means they lose less power, ideal for regular or semi-regular use.
A far more efficient battery the Lithium-ion technology is cleaner, lasts longer and wastes less compared to Lead-Acid Batteries.
Completely maintenance free and with a greater DOD (Depth Of Discharge) you will get up to 80% compared to Lead-Acid which is 50%.
Their lifespan is around 10 – 12 years with around 5000 – 7000 cycles , this makes Lithium-ion a better investment long term.
We highly recommend Lithium, the Pylon range is great value.
