The BYD Battery-Box Pro 13.8kW is part of the widely acclaimed BYS solar battery range.
BYD is the world’s largest manufacturer of rechargeable batteries. BYD, stands for Build Your Dreams. Their dream was to build a battery box and sell them in Australia, this is exactly what they are doing with the B-box battery systems.
There are 2 product lines – the High Voltage (HV) and Low Voltage (LV) B-Boxes, each in a variety of storage capacities.
The most common one to be used for home energy storage is the B-Box LV Residential, which also comes in 4 sizes. The smallest being the B-Box 2.5 with 2.45kW of usable storage and the biggest, the B-Box 10 with 9.8 usable kW’s.
The B-Box batteries pack more power per kilowatt-hour of storage than almost any other system. Its batteries are lithium iron phosphate, which is the safest lithium chemistry on account of how you have to really screw up big time to set them on fire.
B-Boxes Use The Safest Lithium Battery Chemistry
The B-Boxes’ batteries are lithium Iron Phosphate. This is the safest lithium chemistry as it is very difficult to get these batteries to overheat and undergo thermal runaway, which is where they uncontrollably raise in temperature and catch fire. Thermal runaway is also known as “venting with flame”.
Chinese electric cars normally use LiFePO4 (lithium iron phosphate) batteries and not the higher performance NMC (lithium nickle manganese cobalt) batteries used by Tesla and others. This makes Chinese electric vehicles simpler and cheaper – although with reduced performance.
