Solar Battery Analysis & Features
In the previous blog, we learned about all the information related to the solar charge controller.
In this article, we will talk about batteries. & will learn what is the difference between a normal battery & a solar battery.
These batteries use to store solar power. These use in off-grid and hybrid solar solutions. Some batteries developed using wet cell technology & some developed using Gel technology.
Every battery has a different temperature coefficient and ventilation. In the Indian market, there are mainly 2 types of solar batteries available.
- Lead Acid Batteries
- Lithium-Ion Batteries
Lead-Acid Batteries is the old battery. Their efficiency is less in comparison to Lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries have an efficiency of up to 90% & at the same place, lead-acid batteries have an efficiency of just up to 60%. The Lead-Acid Battery’s lifecycle is 300 charging with 50% DOD.
Lithium-ion Batteries are new ones with better efficiency and DOD. Lithium-ion batteries have 1000-1200 chargings with 92% DOD.
These batteries have far better efficiency than the Lead-Acid battery. It is reflected in their price as well. Lithium-ion batteries are very costly.
Now coming to the main difference between solar batteries and normal batteries.
- The charging time difference between solar batteries & normal batteries is almost 50%. Solar Battery charged faster.
- Normal batteries have a warranty of 3-5 years & solar batteries have a warranty of 5-8 years.
- Solar Batteries have a higher working-lifecycle can normal batteries.
- There is a big difference in the cost of solar batteries & normal batteries. Solar Batteries are very costly.
