What are Solar Batteries: A battery is a device which consists of one or more electrochemical cells. These electrochemical cells convert stored energy into electrical energy.

Every cell has a positive terminal, negative terminal, and cathode, anode. The electrolytes permit ions to flow through BTW terminals and electrodes which allow them to current flow out then the battery performs work.

What Are The Various Types of 12V Solar Batteries in Zimbabwe?

All the appliances that are rated 12V, can be run using a 12V Solar Battery. Talking about a lead-acid battery, it can be done by connecting them in series. Whereas, a Lithium-ion battery is mostly between 6Ah and 40Ah of 12V and can be used to run 12V-rated appliances.

In fact, almost all of the batteries available in the market are 12V. but, Lithium-ion batteries come in a variety and depend on the requirement of the user which in turn is dependent on the configuration of the inverter and the charge controller in use or to be used.

  1. 20Ah Solar Battery: These types of solar batteries can be used by small stall owners needing 3-4 hours of backup for mostly just a light in the street stalls/vendors. So basically, they are not for heavy usage either.
  2. 40Ah Solar Battery: These 40Ah solar batteries mostly come in use in case of any jumpstart activity, like, the ignition of a car, motorbike, scooter, etc. with more voltage for the initial working of the appliance. These batteries are also appropriate for the ones that plan on using switching from a home-lighting system to a solar inverter and battery, and for not much usage. They can be used for small homes or shops.
  3. 150Ah Solar Battery: The 150Ah batteries available in the market are actually lead-acid batteries. But, in the case of lithium-ion batteries, research and development are still being made, as they aren’t still really available in the market for any commercial use. If one needs to calculate the capacity of a battery, a multiplication of the voltage and the rating has to be done. For instance, 1 150Ah lead-acid battery provides 1.8 units of storage. But, the storage can be done only between 70-80%. Whereas, if taken as an example of a 3BHK house, a lithium-ion battery, it is done according to the per-day outcome.
  4. 200Ah Solar Battery: A 200Ah solar battery has a higher capacity and requires a little more space than the earlier-mentioned ones. But, for instance, if one uses an 8 150Ah battery for a particular energy supply to run a system, they would take more space. Whereas, only 5 200Ah batteries together would provide more energy with lesser space requirement. Generally, people with large setups use 200Ah solar batteries, for example, farmhouses or more usage of power and/or for places with much power cuts.

How to Choose Solar Battery?

People earlier used to use only lead-acid batteries. But with time, things have changed. In fact, energy generation using solar energy wasn’t very much in trend as well. Initially, the lead-acid battery was used in solar systems. But now, lithium-ion batteries are being intensively used not only in solar systems but also for general use. A lithium-ion battery’s features make it the best solar battery as well as the best battery in general. 

Why? Why is a lithium-ion battery considered the best solar battery? If you are planning to buy solar batteries online and do not have any idea how to choose a battery for your home. You should consider this before buying any battery

  1. Battery Capacity measured in Ah (Ampere-hour)
  2. Battery Warranty.
  3. Price depends on Battery Ah and warranty.

Battery Backup Time

The backup time of the battery depends upon Battery AH (Ampere hour). The higher the AH, the higher will be backup time. Usually, a 150 Ah battery gives around 3 hours of backup on 400 watt Power consumption.

In Zimbabwe, 150 Ah is the bestselling rating as it can last up to 3-4 hours if you use Led light, few ceiling fans, an Led Television, and mobile and Laptop charging. For higher duration backup, one can go for the higher Ah battery.

Solar Battery Warranty:

Battery warranty has two aspects a) Replacement warranty and b) Pro-rata warranty. If your battery fails in the replacement warranty, the Brand will replace it with a new battery and during the pro-rata warranty period, a new battery is offered at a discounted price, which is, also known as a buyback offer.
