Don’t forget this when shopping for a solar battery
Normally solar batteries will be used together with apparatus such as inverters and solar panels. Inverters will convert the low voltages of DC current to higher volts of AC currents necessary for appliances that need such higher amounts of power to start and/or run.
Solar panels will absorb the solar energy from sun to the battery though you can also charge your solar battery using electricity.
So, while choosing the solar battery to buy, check if it is appropriate for these other apparatus.
For example; the watts of a solar panel should almost correspond with the watts of an inverter so a 100ah solar battery will work best with a 1000w inverter.
Also ask your solar battery supplier about their warranty terms before purchasing – you really don’t want to buy a battery without a warranty just in case something goes wrong
Just know that most of the solar batteries on sale in Kenya come with a warranty period of at least one year.
The above are the prices for solar batteries you expect to find in Kenya.
Keep in mind that there are plenty of solar batteries in Kenya including those of smaller capacity than 100ah and others with bigger capacities (over 1000ah).
Needless to say, the larger the capacity of the cell, the higher will be the price of a solar battery in Kenya.
That’s all for this post.
