Batteries

Long-Lasting Batteries to Keep Your Home Powered

Solar batteries are at the heart of an off-grid solar power system. They act as a storage place for the sunshine you collect during the day, and allow you to access this energy at night. A properly designed solar battery bank will give you at least 10 years of service, while a poorly-sized battery bank will only give frustration. We offer our customers the best selection of batteries available at a fair price. If you don’t see the battery you’re looking for or have questions about pricing, please call us today.

Flooded Lead Acid Batteries

Solar-Batteries

Our line of flooded lead acid batteries is manufactured in Spring Hill, Nova Scotia, and is becoming one of the leading standards in off-grid solar installations. In fact,  you will find them being used all over the world.

This big red series of batteries is commonly found in most solar power systems in Canada, and in the United States under the name Rolls.

All lead acid flooded batteries must be enclosed and vented to the outside, as they will produce explosive gasses when charging.

Advantages

  • Least expensive
  • Can be equalized

Considerations

  • Require monthly maintenance
  • Must be vented outside
  • Posts corrode as batteries age
  • Life span 10+ years

AGM Solar Power Batteries

AGM batteries mounted

The AGM “Absorbed Glass Mat” batteries are our best sellers. The technology incorporated in these batteries allows manufacturers to increase their warranty by two years over that of the flood battery. These batteries are sealed and can be installed indoors. They can also be installed in any position, even laying on their sides.

Our line includes Canadian-made Surrette and the popular US-made Power Sonic. We’re always looking for quality batteries to offer our clients.

Advantages

  • Sealed spill proof design
  • Maintenance free
  • Can be mounted on their sides
  • Mid range pricing

Considerations

  • Can not be equalized
  • Heavier based on storage capacity
  • Life span 15+ years
  • Requires additional battery management

Lithium Iron Phosphate

Lithium Battery bank latest is solar battery Technology

Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are the hottest technology on today’s market, made famous by TESLA Motors. These leading-edge batteries have overcome the charge density issues present in other battery technologies, and will fully recharge in lower ambient light conditions. However, lithium batteries require an additional computerized battery management system.

Clients considering geo-thermal system will find enhanced system performance with a bank of properly-sized lithium batteries.

Advantages

  • No need to equalize
  • High charge density
  • Last 15-20 years

Considerations

  • Highest pricing
  • Requires additional battery management

Lead Carbon Batteries

Assembled Carbon Lead Battery Bank 48 volts

Solarwyse is excited to supply new lead carbon battery technology. Lead carbon can offer equal or better performance than the lithium technology. In fact, lead carbon technology will outperform even the Tesla Wall battery (lithium ion) in all aspects except weight.

Lead carbon features greater charge density and lower temperature specs, with no battery management system required. Lead carbon won’t overheat as it contains only stable components, making it ideal for off-grid home power storage. The carbon used is the same as in an ultra capacitor, resulting in greater stability in current surges.

Advantages

  • No need to equalize
  • Highest charge density
  • Last 15-20 years
  • Competitively priced

Considerations

  • Highest weight

Sacred Sun Lead Carbon

sacredsunlogo

Lead carbon batteries have the longevity of lithium at 40% of the cost! We offer these batteries with racking included in the price.

Sacred Sun carbon lead batteries not only have longevity, but are impervious to sulphation, a condition resulting from a battery that is chronically under-charged. Sulphation is the greatest cause of lead acid failure. Compared to lead acid that has 3,000 charge cycles, the carbon lead will more than double up to 7,000 cycles. Pricing slightly higher than the AGM batteries, these batteries have a higher life cycles, making them the best bang for your hard earned bucks!

24 volt bank with racking and all buss bars included is currently priced at $6550. That’s a 1000 Ahr or 12Kwhr bank with a life expectancy of 20+ years.
