Anker, the popular maker of portable power banks and chargers, has announced Solix, a modular solar battery system for the home. Solix is said to be a more affordable and flexible alternative to Tesla’s Powerwall and can be customized to fit the needs of any home.
Solix consists of individual battery modules that can be stacked to create a system with a storage capacity of up to 180 kWh. Each module is equipped with an integrated inverter, eliminating the need for a separate inverter. Solix can be connected to existing solar modules or used as a stand-alone backup power source.
Solix is powered by lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries, which are known for their long life and durability. LFP batteries are also less flammable than traditional lithium-ion batteries and can withstand extreme temperatures, making them ideal for use in hot and cold climates, which of course makes them safer for home use.
What’s more, the Solix is controlled via a user-friendly app that lets you monitor battery performance, set up alerts, and schedule charging and discharging.
Anker says Solix will be available in the United States in early 2024. Pricing has not yet been announced, but Anker says Solix will be “competitively priced” with other home solar battery systems.
Anker Solix is a promising new home solar battery system that offers a number of advantages over its competitors. It is modular, scalable, affordable, and powered by long-lasting and safe LFP batteries. This makes it a good option for homeowners who want to save money on their energy bills and reduce their dependence on the power grid.
