4 Ways Lithium Batteries Power Up Solar

When selecting a battery to complement your solar system, understanding the advantages that lithium batteries have over lead acid batteries is essential. Lithium batteries offer a more compelling energy storage option in nearly every situation.

Getting Charged Up On National Battery Day

Batteries can be found in virtually every household item – remote controls, phones, smoke alarms and toys. They even help us power important equipment like our cars, boats, lawn mowers and more.

Observed each year on February 18th, National Battery Day is a day to appreciate the convenience batteries provide to our everyday lives. 

What is LiFePO4 and Why is it a Better Choice?

All lithium chemistries are not created equal. In fact, most American consumers – electronic enthusiasts aside – are only familiar with a limited range of lithium solutions. The most common versions are built from cobalt oxide, manganese oxide and nickel oxide formulations.

Building Safer Lithium-ion Batteries

Lithium-ion battery technology has popped in and out of the news in recent years, mostly for safety concerns. But engineers who understand how lithium batteries work know that it’s among the best and safest commercial options for energy storage needs. Lithium-ion batteries remain the go-to energy storage technology worldwide and account for 83 percent of newly announced energy storage projects in 2016, according to a new report by Navigant Research.
