Solar Batteries

What is Solar Battery?

A solar battery is an energy storage device that can be paired with an off-grid and hybrid solar system. It is also known as a solar panel battery, solar power battery, or solar battery storage. Solar batteries are designed to connect with a solar charger controller or solar inverter for power backup. With a solar battery, you can store the extra power generated by your solar panels throughout the day and use it later as per your need.

Solar battery alters the way you use solar power. Installing a solar battery at your home allows you to use more of your solar power at home while purchasing less electricity from the grid. Your solar system will transmit power into the grid once your battery is fully charged. A solar battery might be worth considering if your grid electricity goes out frequently and you want backup power.

Main 2 Types of Solar Battery

Types of solar battery or batteries

If we talk about the types of solar batteries, then there are mainly two types of solar batteries. These batteries are being used in the field of solar for decades. If you are thinking of installing a solar system or want to add batteries to your existing solar system then take a look at these batteries.

  • Tall Tubular Solar Battery (Lead Acid)
  • Lithium-ion Solar Battery (LiFePO4)

Let’s take a deeper look at these 2 types of solar batteries.

Tall Tubular Solar Battery (Lead Acid)

A lead-acid tall tubular battery is the most successful, oldest, and reliable technology in solar batteries. It is nothing but the upgraded version of normal batteries that can be used with solar at home and in other places. Solar tubular batteries are fully tested deep cycle solar batteries that can be used in the off-grid solar system, hybrid solar system, solar home lighting system, and solar street lights for decades.

 

These solar batteries are specially designed as per solar application requirements. Tall tubular solar batteries are C-10 rated batteries with slow charging capabilities. For solar application, these batteries are required to be charge on low ampere. A lead-acid tall tubular solar battery requires to top-up with water every 3 to 6 months and can store more power than any other battery.

Pros & Cons of Tall Tubular Solar Battery

Advantages

  • High-efficiency solar batteries
  • More than 1500 life cycles
  • 5 to 7 years long working life
  • Cost-effective solar product
  • Easy to maintain, install, and access.
  • No need for heavy maintenance
  • Very low repair/maintenance cost

Disadvantages

  • Tall tubular solar batteries are heavy
  • You need to refill these solar batteries timely
  • More space is required compared to lithium-ion batteries

Lithium-ion Solar Battery (LiFePO4)

Lithium-ion is another popular type of solar battery well known for its high current rating, and long cycle life. The biggest benefit of lithium-ion batteries is it’s extremely high life-cycle (up to 5000 cycles) and their high charge and discharge capabilities that help harvest more energy from your solar panel. These batteries are generally used in all-in-one solar street lights and solar power vehicles. 

Lithium-ion solar battery

 

The best type of lithium-ion battery for your solar power application is lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4). LiFePO4 batteries are completely safe, not burnable, stable for 15 to 20 years, and maintenance-free. It has good electrical performance with low resistance. For these reasons, lithium-ion batteries are a good choice for any solar system whether it is an off-grid system or a hybrid solar system.

Pros & Cons of Lithium-ion Solar Battery

Advantages

  • 95% depth of discharge (DoD)
  • More than 5000 life cycles
  • Higher energy density
  • More efficient than Lead-Acid batteries
  • Do not require maintenance
  • Eco-friendly solar batteries

Disadvantages

  • Comparatively more expensive

Features of Solar Battery

Solar batteries have been increasingly popular in recent decades as a way to fulfill the world’s growing clean energy demand. These batteries have been specifically designed to be used in solar systems with great features. Let’s dive into these features.

  • Excellent Efficiency

    The overall success of a solar system depends upon storage efficiency. Therefore, solar batteries have an excellent efficiency level. A solar battery maximizes the use of your solar panel system and increases your energy independence.

  • Superior Life Cycle

    The expected life of a solar battery is very long. In addition, solar batteries have an extremely high life cycle which depends upon the type of solar battery. Lead-acid tall tubular batteries have 1500 life cycles while lithium-ion batteries have up to 5000 life cycles.

  • High Round Trip Efficiency

    Solar batteries have high round trip efficiency as well. This means that the power loss during transmission will be very less and you will be able to use most of the stored electricity.

  • Tuff Futuristic Design

    Solar batteries are made of highly durable materials and have a very premium design. They are robust and suitable for off-grid and hybrid solar systems. You can install them anywhere in your home.

  • Water Level Indicators

    One of the specialties of solar batteries is that they come with water level indicators. Water level indicators will tell you how much water is in your battery and when you need to top up the battery.

  • Ultra-Low Maintenance

    Solar batteries require very little maintenance. These batteries require to be top-up with water every 3 to 6 months. There is no additional repairing or maintenance cost for these batteries.

Price List of Solar Battery 2021

The price of any solar component including the solar battery is decided according to its capacity, brand, type, etc. Generally, the cost of a solar battery starts from ₹2,800 and goes up to approximately ₹13,000, as mentioned below.

These are the standard prices of all reputed solar brands in India like UTL Solar BatteryLuminous Solar Battery, Havells Battery, Exide Solar Battery, and Patanjali Battery.

5 Tips To Choose Best Solar Battery For Home

If you are looking for a solar battery for your home then the first thing you need to learn is how to choose the best one. Below are some important points you should consider while choosing the best solar battery for your home.

The capacity/rating of a solar battery indicates how much power the battery can provide. Usually, the capacity of a battery is measured in Ah (ampere-hour). The higher the energy capacity the more electricity is available for use and the longer you can run appliances on battery life. For domestic purposes, we suggest you go for a 150Ah capacity battery.

The brand of a solar battery is one of the factors that affect most people psychologically. Many solar brands make many promises to you while selling their solar product, but they do not listen to you after the product malfunctions. So be careful and only go for trusted brands like UTL Solar, Luminous Solar, Exide Solar, etc.

You may not hear the term “Round-Trip Efficiency“ but it plays an important role to decide whether a solar battery is best for your home or not. Any battery's round trip efficiency represents the percentage of stored electricity that can eventually be used. And the rest of the power is lost during transmission. So always choose a solar battery with at least 80% round-trip efficiency.

The depth of discharge of a solar battery shows what percentage or capacity can be discharged from a fully charged battery. For example, if you have 5kWh solar system and battery with a maximum DoD of 80%, you should not utilize more than 4kWh power without recharging the battery again. So it's obvious, you should go for a higher DoD battery.

Estimated years of operation, expected throughput, and expected cycles are three metrics, used to calculate battery life. Throughput tells you how much electricity you will get through your battery over its lifetime. On the other hand, cycles tell you how many times you can charge and discharge a battery. Always go for a battery with high throughput, more expected cycles, and a longer warranty.
