Understanding the Squirrel Pod System
Squirrel Pod units serve as charge controllers for battery storage setups. They automatically capture any leftover solar energy from your property and charge the batteries, respecting the system’s maximum charging capacity.
If you intend to leverage the grid for economical electricity rates, the Squirrel Pod will ensure your batteries are charged, considering both the quantity of batteries and the system’s charge rate.
A single Squirrel Pod unit boasts a charging capacity of 70A (3.5kw). Linking another Squirrel Pod controller effectively adds an extra 3.5kw of charge/discharge capability.
You have the flexibility to install Squirrel Pod units individually, allowing for the easy addition of a second unit in the future. Alternatively, they can be established in dual or triple configurations right from the start.
Switching to a Squirrel Pod from a conventional Lux AC unit offers the advantage of scalability, giving you the option to expand your system as needed.
