About Hive, Solar Batteries

Hive solar batteries review

Hive is another brand tackling the Australian home energy storage market - but it's not a solar battery manufacturer

Hive is actually a marketing agency that was contracted by AGL to produce materials to communicate how AGL's Virtual Power Plant (VPP) works. It looks like part of that was whacking a Hive logo on an Alpha-ESS Storion-Smile system - not that there's anything necessarily wrong with that, but it's just handy to know.

The base "Hive" all-in-one 2.9kWh battery (2.8kWh usable)  is a modular solution capable of being expanded to 17.4kWh by simply adding more battery units below the base unit. This is a battery supporting AC coupling and can provide blackout protection. 

In addition to using the safest battery chemistry currently commercially available on the market – Lithium Iron Phosphate, the promotional material says it uses extra casing for the cells and special software to protect the battery from any potential damage. Just with regard to the cells, those are manufactured by Chinese company, EVE.

As for further details about the "Hive" battery, it's probably best to take a look at our Alpha-ESS reviews page and also check out the same on on our battery comparison table.

If you've had a Hive system installed, let other Australians know how it's been going by leaving a review here.
