Solar batteries are a great investment, as they allow you to store unused power for later consumption, as well as act as a backup power supply in the case of a power outage. Here, Solar Power Direct discusses why solar power batteries are a smart investment, as well as which batteries are the best on the market. Solar Power Direct has the best range of solar batteries Adelaide has to offer.
The main benefits of solar batteries are:
How long a battery lasts is dependent on a number of factors. Mainly, the size of your battery, how many appliances run off your residential solar panels and how much electricity you use on a daily basis. If you have a small solar battery and are running only a few small appliances such as a TV and some lights, you can expect it to last 4-6 hours. On the other hand, if you are running multiple appliances such as a fridge, a dishwasher or a washing machine, you will need a larger battery. You can expect to get 2-4 hours of power from a large battery while running these appliances.
There are two main types: lead-acid and lithium-ion. Lead-acid batteries are the cheaper option, however they generally have a shorter lifespan and require a lot more maintenance. Alternatively, lithium-ion batteries are more expensive, however require far less maintenance and can last up to twice as long as the lead-acid option.
