Pylon US2000B Plus 2.4kWh Li-Ion Battery


Recommended Posts

Hi Again.

Quick question. Will the Pylon US2000b Plus 2.4kWh Li-Ion Battery work on my Axpert (or clone) inverter (LC1 72 70C). If So, will it be better than my current batteries? (4x100ah AGM) And is it right to assume the AGM batteries is 0.6kwh at 50% DOD and the Pylon is 1.2kwh at 50% DOD (So Pylon will last longer?) Or am I doing the math all wrong?

Saw the pylon advertised on the Powerforum store.

Thanks all for great info. All ok after 1 year going off grid. Going to donate the (1 year) old batteries to my brother to help him get started.

It will, but it's a bit light (should have two or preferably more of them in parallel). Then again, 100 Ah of AGM is rather light too (200 Ah recommended).

No. 100 Ah x 48 V (for easy maths) is 4800 Wh, or 4.8 kWh. So that's twice what a single PylonTech will store. But using 50% of it leaves you with 2.4 kWh.

You can discharge the PylonTech to 80% DOD safely, so that's 80% x 2.4 = 1.92 kWh. So less than the lead acid, but new LFP will probably last better than year-old AGM, depending on how well they have been charged, temperature, and all sorts of things.

So: with a single PylonTech, it would be about the same usable capacity, so about the same lasting power in a load shed.

I note that if you have a clone that came with 72.70c from the factory, those seem to be ones that can't be firmware updated, so you can't get an LFP flavoured patched firmware.
