Making the Switch | Converting an Off-Grid System to Lithium Batteries

September 18 2018

There is considerable mystery, myth and confusion with respect to retrofitting Lithium batteries into existing off-grid systems.

There are five major areas of concern:
• Safety
• Application compatibility
• Charge/discharge management
• Low temperature performance
• High cost

None of these areas of concern pose real-world obstacles for offgridders that want to upgrade to Lithium batteries, none the less, they each should be addressed in system design or operational strategy.

Read the full Whitepaper here.

See how the benefits gained from making the switch to LiFePO4 batteries far outweigh the very small amount of effort it takes to change a few settings. The increase in energy yield coupled with the ease of operation and stability of voltage become apparent very quickly.
