The home solar battery is more popular now because the feed-in tariffs, as well as PV system incentives, are lowering. As a result, batteries connected to PV systems are becoming the best option to lower the electricity bill where the batteries are charged during the day and discharged during the night. Unfortunately, solar home battery is still too expensive, and some batteries need a safe place for installation because of safety concerns. World’s top solar battery brand products are available in Australia. Below is the top Solar Home Battery in Australia.

Solar home battery prices have come down in the past three years and the trend is expected to continue in the future. Whilst many buyers are early adopters and technology lovers, some are already installing battery systems because of the financial benefits. According to the latest forecast a steady increase in the installation of battery storage for coming years, both residential and commercial sectors.
When selecting the size of the battery, house owners are considering some factors including electricity price, household size, payback, subsidies, etc. But when considering a brand, people are considering the other factors including warranty, safety, design, physical size, technology, etc.

LG Chem offers some of the best lithium-ion solar home batteries. LG Chem is a sister company of LG Electronics.
New LG Chem RESU Prime storage applications will come in two versions, LG Chem RESU10H Prime and LG Chem RESU16H Prime. As the names suggest, there is a capacity of 9.6 kWh and 16 kWh respectively. The power is at 5 kW and at its peak 7 kW for the smaller version and at 7 kW and 11 kW at the peak for the larger one.
A system can be connected in parallel for more capacity but unfortunately, it cannot be mixed, 10H should be connected with 10H only and 16H with 16H accordingly. LG Chem’s warranty promises that its RESU batteries will maintain at least 60% of their initial rated energy storage capacity after 10 years OR before the battery has been used to provide 22.4 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity.
