Battery selection – Ah and kWh ratings

    For those of us who find it difficult selecting batteries and understanding the ratings, we thought it well to provide some information on ratings such as Volts, Amps, Amp-hours (Ah) and kilo Watt hours (kWh) Amp-hours (Ah) are often used to measure the charge of a battery measured in Amps for one hour. These are normally used in all Lead-Acid, Lead- Carbon, AGM and Deep Cycle Gel batteries and are typically provided at C/10 and C/20 rates. Where C rate is the rate at which a battery is charged or discharged in terms of its stated Ah capacity rating. I.e For a lead-acid battery with a 200Ah rating, the C/10 rate is 200Ah/10 = 20Amps per hour. If […]

Take this time to evaluate and start executing on reducing risk and empowering yourself by starting to look at investment into your own electrical energy generation using solar PV, battery storage and perhaps as last resort combustion engine generators. Take a look at our Solar Calculator to determine your requirements and approximate costs and payback  by clicking […]
