Lithium solar batteries are a great way to store excess energy from your solar panels. They can also help you avoid high utility rates.
Canbat lithium solar batteries come with a built-in battery management system, which monitors voltage, current and temperature conditions to protect your battery and ensure optimal life. It will shut the battery down if it detects anything unsafe, and will adjust the charge to keep it functioning at peak performance.
Inconsistent charging is one of the biggest challenges for solar batteries, but lithium batteries are more forgiving and can accept a larger amount of charge current without losing performance. Lead-acid batteries, on the other hand, need to be fully charged after discharging a certain amount or it will negatively impact the lifespan of the battery.
The Benefits of Lithium Batteries for Your Solar Energy System
Round-trip efficiency is another important factor to consider. The average lead acid battery has a round-trip energy efficiency of 80%, while lithium iron phosphate batteries can achieve up to 95-98%.
The lifespan of a lithium solar battery is significantly longer than the average lead acid battery. They can have a minimum warrantied lifespan of 10 years, or a cycle life of 10,000 cycles – whichever comes first.
They can also be recharged quickly, as their charge times are much shorter than that of a lead acid battery. This is especially beneficial if you’re looking to use the battery as a backup generator in the event of a power outage.
The main benefit of using lithium solar batteries over lead-acid is that they are environmentally friendly, and they can be recycled easily. Additionally, they have a long lifespan and are non-combustible, which means they won’t release harmful fumes when they’re not being used.
