PRE RELEASE. Unlike many opinionated reviews, the Solar Review Battery Assessment Criteria compares the LG Chem RESU HV against the industries best known specifications.  The result, a solar battery review with no room for discretionary bias and the transparency you desire.  

.

Make and model:  LG Chem RESU HV.

Variants:   7.0 | 9.8 | 13 kWh.

  Battery Type, Certifications.

  Scalability.

GREATER THAN 3.3 IS A VERY GOOD SCORE. The following content for the LG Chem RESU HV should be used as a guide only. Individual circumstances and compatibilities should always be taken into account when selecting the right solar battery for any given installation. This content has been built using the Solar Review Battery Assessment Criteria 1.0 based on available product specifications at the time of writing. 

Design.

Design is what defines a particular solar batteries versatility, base chemical makeup, and verification of defined parameters to assist greater value through innovation and advancement.

Efficiency.

It’s great to have the ability to store excess generated solar energy. However, just how much of your energy is lost during the energy storage to usage process? Get to know a solar batteries round-trip efficiency.  

LG

Chem RESU HV - Efficiency
  • 95% round-trip efficiency.

Performance.

Performance in more ways than efficiency alone. How does a solar battery perform within its intended environment and in adverse conditions? The key specifications not often at first thought.

LG

Chem RESU HV - Performance
  • Min temperature range of -25°C (-13°F).
  • Max temperature range of +30°C (86°F).
  • Weight per kWh: 10 kg (22 lb).
  • Depth of Discharge 95%.
  • Operating humidity 95%
  • Max altitude 2000m

Guarantee.

As guarantee obligations can often be shielded by installer incompetence, should a solar panel manufacturer define an adequately trained installer network with a complimentary warranty extension (added end-user benefit), such guarantee has been considered as a base warranty more likely of adhering manufacturer installation specifications.

Important: A manufacturers obligations under guarantee will be obsolete if the solar battery is not installed to manufacturer specifications. Use an authorised installer.

LG

Chem RESU HV - Guarantee
  • 10-year warranty.
  • Parts & service warranty.
  • 6000 cycles.
  • No authorised installer network.

Affordability.

All well and good having the greatest technology, but what if that technology is simply out of reach for most? Adversely, the cheapest product may lack essential capabilities expected by many end-users. Put price into perspective. Affordability is where price and technology come together to help determine value. 

LG

Chem RESU HV - Affordability
  • Very good technology score (3.7).
  • Approximately $837 per kWh USD ex.
