US2000 48V 2.4kWh Lithium Battery
Based in Shanghai, China, Pylontech is a leader in stationary storage in Europe & South Africa and the only large manufacturer of Lithium batteries that focuses exclusively on stationary storage and not batteries for Electric Vehicles (as BYD, LG Chem, and others do). Pylontech produces their own Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) cells (at a fully automated factory) and Battery Management System and is able to achieve 6000 cycle lifetime and a 10 year warranty with compatibility across a growing list of inverters including Solarquick’s Axpert, Goodwe & Victron models.
In the last year, Pylontech has doubled capacity from 500MWh to 1GWh and will go public in 2020, ensuring more bankability behind their 10 year warranty.
The compact 48V 50Ah 2.4kWh Pylontech US2000 is ideal for replacing lead acid batteries in Nigeria with the following benefits:
with 90% Depth of Discharge (DoD), the US2000 provides 2.2kWh of usable capacity vs 50% DoD with Lead Acid batteries. A typical 200Ah 12V Lead - Acid battery provides only 1.2kWh so the Pylon US2000 with 2.2kWh is equivalent to almost two of those Lead Acid Batteries
Pylontech batteries charge/discharge at 0.5C (ie 2 hours) rather than 0.2C for Lead Acid which means they are perfect for grid-challenged urban back-up power where they can quickly charge from PHCN when available and provide sustained high-output power during power cuts.
Pylontech's proprietary interconnect cables (included with each battery) allow for very quick on-site installation without the need to procure separate cabling. Moreover, by connecting the included RJ45 cable into the CAN communication port of compatible inverters, the Pylon US3000 settings are automatically loaded into the inverter.
Full Output at 50 C:
Unlike Lithium NMC (found in smartphones and EVs), LFP is ideal for use in high temperature and is able to output full power at up to 50 C. By contrast Lead Acid de-rates above 25 C.
Inverter-independent warranty: unlike BYD, whose 10 year warranty is contingent on installation with approved SMA, Goodwe, and Victron inverters, Pylontech settings (charging current, LVD, etc.), can be set in low cost inverters providing a means to upgrading legacy lead acid systems.
