Nationwide, utility companies are reducing subsidies for grid-connected solar users... More and more homeowners are choosing home energy storage systems for their renewable energy (RE).
But which home battery technology is best for you? Which innovative technologies can improve battery life, reliability, and performance?
Focusing on various battery technologies, "Which battery technology will win the home energy storage competition?" Aydan, BSL Powerwall battery energy storage product marketing manager, examines the future of the battery energy storage industry. You will understand which type of battery is the most valuable and help you choose the best backup battery technology for your solar power system.
You will also discover which household battery storage devices have a longer battery life-even in harsh conditions.
Read this article to learn more about how you will choose residential backup batteries for renewable energy systems in the future, and which batteries and energy storage systems you need to extend service life and improve reliability.
LiFePO4 battery is a new type of lithium-ion battery solution. This lithium iron phosphate-based solution is inherently non-flammable and has a low energy density, making it an ideal choice for household energy storage battery packs and other applications. LiFePO4 batteries can also withstand extreme conditions, such as severe cold, extreme heat, and bouncing on rough terrain. Yes, it means they are friendly! The service life of LiFePO4 batteries is another huge advantage. LiFePO4 batteries usually last 5,000 cycles at 80% discharge.
Lead-acid batteries may be cost-effective at first, but in the long run, they will eventually cost you more. That's because they require constant maintenance, and you must replace them more frequently. The home energy storage system is to reduce the cost of electricity bills. From this point of view, LiFePO4 batteries are obviously better. The service life of LiFePO4 batteries will be extended by 2-4 times, with zero maintenance requirements.
Like LiFePO4 batteries, gel batteries do not require frequent recharging. They will not lose charge when stored. What is the difference between gel and LiFePO4? A big factor is the charging process. Gel batteries charge at a snail-like speed, which seems to be intolerable for the current fast-food life speed. In addition, you must disconnect them at 100% charging to avoid damaging them.
AGM batteries can cause great damage to your wallet, and if you use up more than 50% of their capacity, they themselves have a high risk of damage. It is also difficult to maintain them. Therefore, it is difficult for AGM batteries to change to the direction of household energy storage. LiFePO4 lithium battery can be fully discharged without risk of damage.
So through a brief comparison, it can be found that LiFePO4 batteries are the obvious winners. LiFePO4 batteries are "charging" the battery world. But what exactly does "LiFePO4" mean? What makes these batteries better than other types of batteries?
