Our top 5 Most asked Questions Regarding Hanchu 9.4kWh Blade Lithium Batteries

The sun’s energy has long been recognized for its abundance and potential as a sustainable energy source. With advancements in technology, we can harness this power, convert it into electricity, and store it for later use. Solar batteries play a pivotal role in this energy transformation, allowing homeowners and businesses to store solar energy and use it when the sun isn’t shining. But how do you choose the best solar battery for your needs? Here’s what you need to know:

1. Capacity

Capacity refers to the total amount of electricity a solar battery can store. It’s often measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). When considering capacity, think about your daily electricity usage. If your household uses 30 kWh per day, you might want a battery that can store at least that much, or perhaps even more, to ensure you have sufficient backup power. Remember, capacity is cumulative, so you can increase capacity by stacking multiple batteries together.

2. Efficiency

The efficiency of a solar battery indicates how much energy can be used as a percentage of the energy that has been stored. A battery with higher efficiency will provide more energy for consumption than one with lower efficiency. Round-trip efficiency, which considers the energy lost when electricity is stored and then retrieved, is a key metric to look at. For instance, if you feed 10 kWh of electricity into a battery and get 9 kWh back, your round-trip efficiency is 90%.

3. Depth of Discharge (DoD)

Depth of Discharge (DoD) refers to the percentage of a battery’s capacity that has been used. The higher the DoD, the more you can utilize the battery before you need to recharge it. Batteries degrade with every charge and discharge cycle. A high DoD means you can use more of the battery’s capacity, but it may also affect its lifespan. Look for batteries that provide a balance between high DoD and longevity.

4. Warranty

A battery’s warranty is an assurance from the manufacturer about the product’s quality and longevity. Most solar battery manufacturers will guarantee a certain number of years or cycles at a specified retained capacity. For instance, you might be offered a 5 to 10-year warranty with the battery retaining at least 80% of its original capacity. Make sure to read and understand the warranty terms, as it can be a crucial determinant in your purchasing decision.

5. Lifespan

The lifespan of a solar battery refers to how long it can effectively store and discharge energy. A longer lifespan can translate to better value over time, as you won’t need to replace the battery as often. The lifespan is influenced by factors like the battery’s chemistry, how often it’s cycled, and its operating conditions.

6. Manufacturer

Not all solar batteries are made equal. The reputation and reliability of the manufacturer matter. Opt for a reputable brand with a track record of producing high-quality, durable products. Look for reviews, customer testimonials, and third-party certifications to ensure you’re getting a reliable product.

In Conclusion:

Investing in a solar battery can be a game-changer for those looking to maximize their solar energy utilization or have backup power during outages. By understanding and considering the factors listed above, you can make an informed decision, ensuring you get the best solar battery tailored to your energy needs. Remember, the initial cost might be high, but the long-term savings and environmental benefits make solar batteries a worthy investment.

Typically, they last from 5 to 25 years.

Solar batteries, on average, have a lifespan ranging from 5 to 25 years. Among these, lithium-ion batteries are the most common and can serve up to 15 years. The lifespan of a solar battery can be influenced by its type, how it’s installed, its depth of discharge, the number of charge cycles, the surrounding environment, and how well it’s maintained.

Hanchu Lithium batteries offer a 12-year standard warranty.

Homeowners are increasingly considering battery storage for several pivotal reasons:

  1. Pursuit of Independence: Many homeowners aspire to be self-reliant, desiring to power their homes using the electricity they generate personally.
  2. Solar-Powered Transportation: With solar power, homeowners can charge their cars even if they’re away during sunlight hours. By storing the harvested solar energy in home batteries, they can later use it to fuel their vehicles upon returning.
  3. Supporting the Grid: Home batteries help diminish the strain on the electricity grid during peak hours (typically between 16:30 and 19:30 on weekdays). This not only streamlines and reduces the cost of the UK’s electricity system but also reduces the necessity for as many fossil fuel-based power stations due to decreased peak demand.
  4. Backup During Outages: Certain battery models offer the advantage of tapping into stored energy during power outages, ensuring uninterrupted power supply.
  5. Economical Electricity Consumption: Home batteries provide the option to store cost-efficient night-time electricity, ensuring homeowners always utilize the most affordable electricity available, be it from solar panels or the grid.

If you’re presently benefiting from feed-in-tariff (FiT) payments for the electricity produced by your solar PV, adding a home battery system won’t impact these payments. While the FiT program ceased for home solar PV systems set up from 1st April 2019 onwards, households already enrolled in the scheme will continue receiving their payments for the agreed contract period (typically 20 years post-installation) even if they integrate a home battery system.

The Hanchu & Lux Power Tek home battery system simply stores electricity for later use in your home. Energy needs in a household fluctuate throughout the day, especially during times when family members are away. Often, electricity generated by solar panels during these times isn’t fully used. And when there’s no sunlight or during poor weather, your solar panels can’t produce energy, necessitating a draw from the grid. With a home battery, you have stored solar power at the ready before relying on grid electricity.

Furthermore, Hanchu Home battery systems can tap into cost-effective grid tariffs, such as those from Octopus Energy. This allows you to charge your batteries at lower rates and use the stored energy when grid prices spike.

The notion that one must purchase as many Hanchu Lithium home batteries as possible is unfounded. The Hanchu Ess battery series, when paired with Lux Power Tek Inverters & Lux Power AC controllers, is modular. This allows for a flexible approach where you can begin with just one or two batteries and monitor their performance. The Lux or Hanchu monitoring data will quickly indicate if more batteries are needed.

Should you have any uncertainties, a representative from Home Energy Group is available to analyze your data and advise on the potential benefits of adding more batteries.
