  • These batteries are not sustainable, they do not reduce your carbon footprint, this all false advertising

  • People and have been killed or permanently and seriously injured from exploding Lithium-ion batteries

  • More and more Lithium-ion batteries are exploding and catching fire

  • Once they have caught fire, it is extremely difficult to put out

  • In most cases a building or car will be either totatally destroyed or seriously damaged

  • They need to be replaced at least every 10 years

  • They can not be recycled, there is currently no process that can recycle lithium-ion batteries without losing money

  • There will be significant environmental issues when disposing used lithium batteries in the coming years

  • They cost an excessive amount of power to mine and manufacture

  • Children as young a 7 years old are paid $2 per day in dangerous mining conditions to mine cobalt for Lithium-ion batteries

  • The extraction process of lithium is very resource demanding and specifically uses around 500,000 litre of water in the extracting 1 metric tonne of Lithium

  • There is signicant environmental damage to diverse ecosystems around some Lithium mines

  • Lithium-ion batteries contain cobalt and manganese, which are toxic and can contaminate water supplies and ecosystems if they leach out of landfills

  • Please do your reseaerch on these batteries, they are dangerous to us and the environment

    Below are Charge and Discharge information of our Nickel Iron batteries.

    Below is a screen shot of our inverter's Input (charging) and Load (usage).

    Remember each Nickel Iron cell = 1.2 volts.

    12 volt battery needs 10 cells (10 cells x 1.2 volts = 12volts when connected in series)
    24 volt battery
    needs 20 cells (20 cells x 1.2 volts = 24volts when connected in series)
    48 volt battery
    needs 40 cells (40 cells x 1.2 volts = 48volts when connected in series)

    If you connect the cells in parallel you will increase the amp hrs.

    Example: 10(ten) x 100ah x 1.2 cells connected in parallel = 1000ah at 1.2 volts

    Our system is made up of 40  x 1000ah cells connected to a solar system and the electricity grid.

    As each cell is 1.2 volts we are running a 48 volt system. The inverter is set to operate a 48volt system.

    The inverter automatically disconnects from the grid (daily) at 5.00pm and reconnects at 5.00am.
