What Should I Look for When Buying a Solar Battery?

Trying to decide on the best solar battery for your situation is a bit more difficult than you may have expected.

The main reason for this is because different solar batteries have been developed for different situations.

For example, an off-grid solar array has different battery storage needs than an on-grid one. A large solar array is different from a small one. An existing array is different from one not yet installed. A boat is different from a large house. Besides all that, there are also just different brands and models for different budgets. There are also different types of solar battery chemistry.

So, to help you narrow down your choices for what kind of battery is best for your solar energy system, here are eight core features that will help you understand what you want and need.
