PACE can help design suitable lithium-ion battery energy storage solution for household energy storage, match high-performance BMS battery management mode, with over-discharge, over-charge, over-current, temperature and other protection functions. Lithium-ion battery for solar storage is also available in PACE.


What Is a Lithium Ion Solar Battery

Lithium ion solar battery is simply lithium-ion batteries used in solar store systems.To take it a step further, lithium ion solar battery is mostly chosen for deep cycle lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries because they are more beneficial in solar storage systems than traditional lead acid deep cycle starter batteries.


Lithium ion phosphate batteries are amazing efficient and long-lasting battery.Because LiFePO4 batteries are deep cycle batteries,they are well suited to the solar energy storage market where they need to be easily charged and discharged at all times.


What Are the Pros and Cons of the Lithium Ion Solar Batteries

Lithium ion Batteries in Solar Energy Storage Applications Have Many Advantages:

1. Maintenance Free.

A key advantage of lithium ion batteries is that lithium battery performance is maintenance-free independent. This advantage plays an important role in solar energy storage.

2. Reduced Weight. 

Compared to lead-acid batteries, lithium ion battery packs deliver the same or more energy at less than half the weight and size, which means simpler installation.

3. Extended Life. 

In short, the life of a lithium ion battery always depends on where and how the battery is used. When used properly, lithium-ion batteries are known for their extended lifespan. As a result, lithium-ion batteries last two to three times longer than similar grades of lead-acid batteries.

4. High Energy Density. 

Compared to lower energy density batteries, high energy density batteries can provide the same amount of energy but take up less space. This is what makes lithium-ion batteries a suitable choice for solar energy storage.

5. Low Self-discharge Rate

All types of batteries perform some amount of self-discharge, and this has not changed, but it is related to temperature, battery type and initial state of charge. As lithium-ion batteries, they have a much lower self-discharge rate than lead-acid batteries.


Cons of Lithium Ion Solar Batteries:

1. High Cost

Lithium ion batteries are more expensive than lead-acid batteries. The cost of costs to be on the solar panels and batteries is a significant part of the total cost of installation. Lithium-ion batteries have a higher price per unit than lead acid, but they can provide twice or even three times as much energy by weight as lead acid.

2. Needed BMS

Lithium ion battery pack will need a smart BMS to achieve more funtion. Lithium ion battery cells will need to be placed in a smart BMS (Battery Management System) in order to prevent the risk of a cell short circuit or fire due to poor connections and faulty charging.


How Does Household  Solar Batteries Work

Battery energy storage systems were first introduced in the 1970s. Since then, they have become commonplace in a number of fields, among them automotive batteries and solar photovoltaic power generation. In recent years, however, the increasing use of lithium ion batteries has led to lower costs and higher capacity than ever before.


Lithium ion solar batteries can capture any unused solar energy generated during the day and save it for nighttime use. The battery will keep a household running all night, whether or not enough sunlight is captured during daylight hours.
