More solar energy storage batteries

More products are coming to market all the time. Here’s our take on the best of the rest.

BYD Solar battery storage


BYD (Build Your Dreams) are a large Chinese manufacturer of batteries for major mobile phone brands. They’ve also been researching energy storage for renewables since 2006. Their domestic offering is the MiniES which has 3kWh of useable storage and can be increased to 6kWh with an additional battery. With a product warranty of 5 years and battery warranty for 8000 cycles, this is likely to be a market leader amongst the Chinese offerings.
