Solar for Tiny Houses NZ

As of 2021, we have researched and put together what we believe is the best value for money Solar System in regards to efficiency, size, warranty and service life.

Batteries:

We use Lithium Iron Solar Batteries. The price of Lithium Iron Batteries has been rapidly dropping over the last few years, especially since Tesla released their Powerwall 1 in 2015. 
They are superior in so many ways compared to Lead Acid, Gel or AGM batteries.
They have a built in battery management system (BMS). This will protect the batteries from: overload, over discharge, over charge, short circuit, provide protection from thermal runaway and increase the overall life of the battery.

Advantages of Lithium Iron Batteries

(when achieving the same usable power storage):
  • You can use 80% of your batteries power without any damage
  • 4 times longer lifespan
  • More efficient in charging
  • Less power loss due to temperature
  • Half the amount of batteries/space needed
  • A quarter of the weight
  • Cheaper lifetime cost
