PowerBanx X1 Home Solar Battery Storage System 2.4 kWh Installed

In the winter you can top it up with Economy 7 electricity at night to give you half-price electricity during the day. It is an intelligent system and can be programmed to automatically swap from mostly solar + some Eco7 in the summer to mostly Eco7 + some solar in the winter, for example. This particular system, the X1, comes with one battery but can be expanded later (just by adding batteries) to a total of 8 batteries (19.2kWh). 1 x 2.4kWh batteries (2.4kWh total capacity, 1.92kWh usable capacity at 80% depth of discharge/DOD).These are advanced Lithium-Ion (Lithium Iron Phosphate) batteries - a particularly safe battery chemistry. They include an advanced, in-built battery management system. Each battery has an output power of 1kVA approx. 1kW so the X1 system has a maximum output of about 1kW. Free standing (though can be wall-mounted). Can be fitted in a UK loft (not an option for larger systems like the Powerwall).
Can be upgraded to a lockable metal enclosure at a small additional cost - in either black or white. The enclosure shown allows later upgrade to 5 or 6 batteries and has dimensions of 45cm x 60cm x 77cm. Larger enclosures are available to house up to 8 batteries.
