Different Types of Solar Batteries

At Probe, we offer all four main solar battery types:

  • Lead-acid
  • Lithium-ion
  • Nickel-cadmium
  • Flow

Solar batteries are an essential component for solar energy systems in homes or commercial spaces. We’ll help you select the best solar battery for your system, allowing you to maintain your daily lifestyle and operations with an additional electricity source.

Benefits of Solar Batteries

The primary benefit of solar batteries is being able to live and work off the grid. By using a power system with solar batteries rather than relying on traditional energy systems, you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Uninterrupted power 24/7
  • Save money on energy costs
  • Improve your productivity
  • Reduce your carbon footprint

Probe’s solar batteries for sale are compatible with both off-grid and hybrid solar panel systems in need of energy storage.

AGM Battery vs Gel Battery

AGM and gel batteries can both be used as alternatives to lithium and lead-acid solar batteries. The main difference between an AGM and gel battery is that gel batteries are made using a gel paste in which the electrolyte is suspended inside the battery case. AGM batteries store the electrolyte in an internal structure, so it can never spill — a major safety advantage. Safety is an important factor to consider when choosing solar batteries for home use especially.

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar batteries last anywhere from 5 to 25 years, depending on the type of battery and the system installation setup. For example, solar batteries for home will likely have a longer lifespan than industrial-use solar batteries. In order to preserve the solar battery system for as long as possible, it’s important to use the correct battery type and charger.

At Probe, we only stock high-quality solar battery types, and we pride ourselves on the quality of our batteries. The best solar battery types are:

  • Deep cycle batteries
  • Lithium batteries
  • AGM batteries

Deep cycle solar batteries are a type of battery with a depth of discharge of 80% or more. This means that 80% of the battery can be discharged and charged without reducing the battery’s efficiency.

Lithium solar batteries are generally all deep-cycle batteries. They are efficient, have a fast charge speed, and last long.

AGM solar batteries are a type of lead acid battery. They are all deep-cycle batteries and low maintenance, making them a popular battery for alternative energy storage.

The number of solar batteries required for a 5kW solar system depends on the DC input required by the inverter. A potential option is using 5 AGM batteries in the battery bank with 100AH capacity.  

Deep cycle batteries are made using thick battery plates and dense active material. This allows the battery to successfully manage charge and discharge rates. Deep cycle batteries are also light, compact, and fast-charging, making them the ideal solar batteries for home and office use.
