About Pylontech, Solar Batteries

Pylontech solar batteries review

Pylon Technologies, Co. Ltd (Pylontech) is a Chinese company that was founded in October 2009. It produces a wide range of battery systems - everything from powerbanks for small devices to containerised 1MW systems for commercial and industrial use.

US2000B Plus

Among Pylontech's residential offerings in Australia are rack-mounted lithium-ion solar batteries housed in a cabinet that looks a little like a bar fridge. The US2000B is a 2.4kWh module with 2.16kWh usable capacity. 

As for power rating, it is 2kW continuous per module, but this "stacks" with each additional module - so it can potentially have a lot of grunt. It looks like six of these modules can be stacked inside the "bar fridge" cabinet, which by the way is only able to be installed inside.

Given it's an indoor-only energy storage solution, it's even more important a comparatively safe lithium ion chemistry is used. On this point, the US2000B Plus delivers with lithium iron phosphate, widely considered the safest chemistry currently commercially available.

The US2000B is Emergency Power Supply (EPS) capable when used with a Solax hybrid inverter. Bear in mind EPS features aren't designed to run a full house, just some appliances in order to get you through a temporary blackout.

As for warranty, that's a bit tricky. Apparently it's 7 years that can be extended to 10 with registration. We say "apparently" as we haven't sighted a warranty document yet, so don't buy this product unless you do put eyes on a warranty (and give it a very good look over).

As well as the US2000B, there's the US3000, offering greater usable capacity per module (3.2 kWh).

Pylontech Force

Also available in Australia is the Pylontech Force modular range designed for residential applications that comes in a pretty spiffy cabinet, and is compatible with inverters from various manufacturers including SolaX, Goodwe, Imeon, Selectronic, Redback and Sungrow. The warranty on the Force models is 10 years.

A couple of examples from the range - the 7.1kWh Pylontech Force L2 offers 6.7kWh of usable capacity and a power rating of 3.3kW. The 10.65kWh version has 10.1kWh usable capacity and a 5kW power rating.

We have estimated pricing and specification details of Pylontech batteries on our solar battery comparison table, and Pylontech is currently listed as a SolarQuotes approved battery brand.

Pylontech Solar Battery Reviews

With a disabled husband in my care any power outages in the area were dealt with no stress from us as the system has a backup through the batteries we added. We later added 2 more batteries to total 4. This meant lifter batteries etc could sttill be charged and the fridge kept working

The battery is a component system(4 x 3.6kWh), and we got the biggest size that the inverter could handle, 14.2kWh. Always lasts us through the night, especially now that our daughter has moved out and isn’t spending 1 1/2 hours in the bathroom with the 2000w blowheater going!
