I recently described how to force a charge on a SolaX based home battery system through the screen. Here I'll cover the process to do the same thing through the system's online interface, the SolaX Cloud. Accessing Work Mode: Force Time Use 1.

I have previously described how to set overnight charging times (for Economy 7 or similar tariffs) on our most popular PowerBanx systems which use an inverter made by Sofar; I've also explained the same process for our premium PowerBanx systems which use an inverter made by Victron. Here I'm going to cover that process
Many of us recently experienced a major national power cut, one that would have been worse had it not been for grid battery storage. In the same way, a battery is a good option to help get us through power cuts in the home and keeping the lights on. Watching the clock in
When recently I was notified of an upcoming planned power cut I decided to look into the best ways to get prepared. Until recent years it was uncommon to experience power cuts of any significant duration in Western countries, but that situation is starting to change. A big driver, of course, is climate change

I have previously described how to set overnight charging times (for Economy 7 or similar tariffs) on our most popular PowerBanx systems which use an inverter made by Sofar; here I'm going to cover the same process for PowerBanx systems which use an inverter made by Victron. These inverters are more expensive but have
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new PowerBanx X35 home battery storage system, now available to order. It builds on the success of our PowerBanx X series, combining its ease of use and value for money with a much greater maximum capacity and lower cost per kWh. The X35 uses the
[We have the pleasure to publish here an article from one of our customers, Peter Cittern, describing how he expanded his PowerBanx home storage system:
The last few years have been good for systems based around Lithium-Ion batteries, particularly electric cars and home battery systems like the PowerBanx, with prices falling consistently year-on-year as demand and supply have risen. However, it looks like that is about to change, at least in the UK.
I recently described how a PowerBanx home battery system saves you money: you charge it on a combination of free solar and half-price Economy 7 electricity then use it to run your home when you would otherwise have to pay full price for your power.
