BYD Lithium Solar Battery (upgrade module)- 2.5kWh to 80kWh



At Commodore Australia we’re proud to offer the very latest and safest in lithium battery technology from BYD with the new SolarBatt BYD modular lithium battery system.

Upgrade your grid connected or off grid solar system with a cost effective energy storage solution. Based on the rated performance and upfront cost, the BYD lithium batteries deliver an exceptional cost of ownership of approximately 17 cents per kWh. This compares favorably with the typical & rising cost of mains energy of around 28 cents per kWh.

The BYD modular battery system is compatible with a growing number of inverter/charger brands, such as:

  • Victron Energy (VE Bus models)
  • SMA Sunny Island
  • Zeus Apollo Z21 series
  • Goodwe
  • Others too – please contact us to inquire about compatibility

The BYD battery bank is made of a specially designed cabinet fitted with up to 4x 2.5kWh battery modules, and up to 8 cabinets fitted with 4 modules each are able to be connected together. The battery modules are rated to 6000 cycles to 96% Depth Of Discharge (otherwise called DoD). These modules can be added at any time to expand the capacity of the system. They have a constant power rating equal to their capacity – 2.5kW each – making them very suitable for off grid and high demand applications. For example, a 5kWh battery bank can deliver up to 5kW constant power output. Many lithium battery types are limited to much lower constant power ratings.The battery bank can be expanded up to 80kWh total capacity (32x modules in 8 cabinets) .

Key Specifications:

  • Nominal Voltage – 51.2v – suitable for 48v systems
  • Total capacity per battery module – 2.5kWh
  • Usable energy per module – 2.4kWh
  • Maximum output power per module – 2.5kW
  • Cycle life per module – >6000 cycles
  • Expand-ability – up to 80kWh total, adding modules and cabinets as necessary at any time

Peace of mind is an important facet of living self sufficiently or off grid. The BYDLithium battery system features an outstanding 10 year warranty, and is constructed of the safest and best performing lithium battery technology – Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (otherwise known as LiFePO4 or LFP).
