Battery Efficiency is at its best with Deep Cycle Solar Technology

Discussion around battery efficiency is possibly at the highest point as most electronics and now the electric vehicle customers are demanding long life of batteries while giving the optimum output. 

The demands though at loggerhead with each other, is important inflection point for users both in terms of safety and durability. Hence there are different types of batteries that the companies are trying to trifle with so that an array of best answers is provided for the users.

 Solar deep cycle batteries are different from regular batteries in terms of power output. Regular batteries like those used in fossil fuel driven cars produce a shorter burst of electricity. But deep cycle batteries can produce ongoing, lower yet consistent, levels of power.

Deep-cycle batteries are popular for off-grid or hybrid solar systems because they can be completely discharged and are not damaged as quickly as normal batteries can be. For example, an acid lead-acid battery, can only be discharged at a maximum of 50% to extend its useful life.

When using batteries for solar panels as part of integrated home solar system, the deep-cycle batteries allow users to store the excess electricity that the solar panels produce instead of sending that energy back into the grid. Electricity is only sent to the grid if the batteries are fully charged and the solar panels are still producing energy.

While there are options of producing solar energy while being grid-tied, which essentially means no requirement to add a battery, but hybrid solar solutions are increasingly popular. But any off-grid lifestyle or travel will need a solar battery. A few situations that demand deep cycle battery and its efficiency are life in camper or motorhome or a boat where battery storage is the only way to ensure continued energy access.

Depending on the necessity and situation there is a plethora of deep cycle solar technologies and products available in the market like Flooded lead acid, sealed lead acid, and lithium iron phosphate enabled batteries which all have their own advantages, from maintenance levels, to cycle lives, and charge rates.

Deciding on the right solar storage solution can be challenging with all of the deep cycle battery options available. There’s not a one-sized-fits-all solution, but by weighing the cost and benefits with help of skilled manager advisors, one should be able to invest in a suitable battery bank and create own solar storage system.
