About SolarEdge, Solar Batteries

SolarEdge solar batteries review

SolarEdge is an Israeli company best known for manufacturing solar inverters and power optimisers, but it has recently branched out into manufacturing battery storage.

Formally launched in Australia in late March 2022, the SolarEdge Home Battery offers 9.7 kilowatt-hours of usable storage and can crank 5 kilowatts of continuous power.

A DC coupled energy storage solution, it is backup capable - but that requires extra equipment and therefore extra cost. A SolarEdge Energy Hub single phase inverter and a Backup Box is needed for backup functionality. Use without backup requires either a SolarEdge HD-Wave Genesis or HD-Wave EV inverter.

On a related note, the company doesn't recommend this battery be used for off-grid applications.

The system can be installed indoors or outdoors and wall or floor mounted; with the latter requiring the purchase of a floor mount.

The SolarEdge Home Battery warranty is pretty good compared to some other manufacturers - 10 years and unlimited cycles.

A Unique Battery Safety Feature

In terms of safety, this battery sysytem has a really interesting feature - a built in fire extinguisher that will engage should the internal temperature rise too high. But prior to this happening, the system will alert SolarEdge and the owner to a heat issue requiring attention.

With an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure, this is a really good idea as once that extinguisher is in a situation where it engages, the battery will be pretty much toast. But thanks to this intervention, hopefully not thoroughly burnt toast taking the home with it.

SolarQuotes' Jono was one of the first Australians to install this battery. Learn about the eventful first 3 months of ownership in his SolarEdge Home Battery review.

If you have one of these solar batteries, share your opinions on its quality and performance by leaving a review. Being such a new product there would be many Australians interested in learning about your SolarEdge Home Battery experience!

We would like to highly recommend Solar Air Energy for their services and installation. We had a battery system and Ducted air conditioner installed. Seemless to the end! Thankyou the guys from the install team- Brodie, Tom, Jack, Josh, Dylan, Corey and Nathan!

We had a problem with one of the batteries. SolarEdge and Stored Solar negotiated and replaced it.

We were initially undecided about getting a battery because of the cost. However we are glad we did. The only time we need to draw from the grid is during winter when we run the reverse cycle heating which will drain the battery (9.7kWh) by about 8.30pm. The rest of the year is not a problem.
