Powerplus batteries (Australian Made Lithium)

Australian designed and engineered, the Powerplus Lithium batteries are very impressive in all aspects featuring a 10,000 cycle life rating, a much smaller footprint and excellent low temperature performance. A battery bank can now fit in almost one third the footprint of previous off grid lithium options, with aesthetics a world forward from a lead-acid type battery bank.

Powerplus batteries have been used in industrial applications for a long time with a strong mining alliance, they have a fantastic in-field record for reliability and performance in harsh environments. Powerplus are also used in the Australian services.

Main benefits of the PowerPlus Energy Batteries:

  • Australia made, designed and engineered
  • No Control/Communication cables required
  • 96-98% Charge efficiency
  • 10,000 Cycles rated in off grid solar
  • Flexible installation options( almost unlimited batteries can be added in parallel at ANY time in the lifespan of the system)
  • 1/3 of the weight and size of lead acid batteries
  • 24 and 48V units available
  • 100% Depth of Discharge
  • 10 Year warranty

Based on the rated performance and upfront cost, the Powerplus Batteries deliver an exceptional cost of ownership. The 10,000 cycle based warranty (24,000kWh per battery module in 10 years) dictates a max of around 13.5 cents per kWh, and typical real word usage scenarios can far exceed the guaranteed minimums.

Peace of mind is a very important facet of living self sufficiently or off grid. The Victron hardware has time proven reliability & is covered by an outstanding 5 year replacement or repair warranty. The Powerplus Lithium batteries system features an outstanding 10 year or 10,000 cycle warranty! They are constructed of the safest and best performing lithium battery technology for solar off grid power systems ? Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (otherwise known as LiFePO4 or LFP).

The system can be expanded at any time in the following ways

  • Over 100kWh battery storage ? using 3kWh modules & cabinets as required (add an extra 3kWh battery from $3250 inc gst.
  • Up to 6x Inverter Chargers for up to 18kVA rated output power ? set single phase or 3 phase
  • Within sensibility, basically an unlimited amount of solar power can be installed, adding more MPPT controllers as required.

Create a Grid-Hybrid?system, where your Solar energy is used & stored as first priority**. Power will be supplied primarily from the solar panels?& battery bank. If required, the grid can help power loads through the inverter automatically. This design principle uses your solar & stored energy first before using the mains grid power. If your batteries are full, and there is more solar power than your loads need, the extra power can be exported back to the grid for feed-in tariffs.

** color control GX system required to do this- add $790 inc gst

System Performance

Solar array ? depending on location, the annual daily?average in Australia is?4 to 5 hours equivalent of?full?power from the?array per day (where a 1kW array would give between 4 ? 5kWh per day?if demanded) with more in summer and less in winter. A large solar PV array?design principle reduces the amount of time the batteries will be low on charge, which?maximises their life expectancy & provides you with far more reliable power. Average daily input figures:

6x 270w = 7.3kWh | 9x 270w = 10.94kWh | 12x 270w = 14.6kWh per day
