About Growatt, Solar Batteries

Growatt solar batteries review

Growatt is best known for its inverters, but the company is another solar manufacturer that has also ventured into battery storage.

Growatt is a Chinese firm that was established in 2010; but it's only been producing solar batteries since 2019. The first of its products is the GBLI6531 - rolls right of the tongue, doesn't it?

This battery is based on LiFePO4 technology, so the chemistry itself is pretty safe - but it's not clear who manufactures the cells used. It's not a big battery in terms of storage capacity (6.5 kWh nominal/6 kWh usable), but it has a decent power output of 4.2kW. It's just a shame the output doesn't really match up well to capacity.

There's a 10-year warranty on the battery and unlike some other energy storage manufacturers, Growatt has an Australian presence; with offices in Melbourne and Sydney.

We haven't heard a lot about Growatt's energy storage offering in terms of how Australians who have purchased one have found its performance. If you're a Growatt battery owner, you can add your thoughts by clicking the "leave a review" button towards the top of this page.

Growatt Solar Battery Reviews

2 x Lithium Ion 6.5kWh

Working well with updated firmware

The battery was installed in late July. Some problems initially, possibly aggravated by a SAPN planned outage. The batteries didn't seem to come back online correctly and were giving error messages. A call to Sunterra resulted in prompt action through the Growatt people to upgrade the firmware (via a physical visit). Since then the batteries have run error free (though no more blackouts to upset them). They charge and discharge quite happily. They do stop discharging at 13%. Although I gather that the more they discharge, the shorter the life of the battery. On the other hand, the figures I see indicate that the bottom of the discharge should be more in the area of 8%.

The battery is one of the cheaper on the market that performs just as well as any of the others I think. And now allows me to have free power throughout the night
