I'm just curious. It seems Omnipower is a highly rated brand in SA and their products is quite expensive especially their battery range.  But when you try to search more about them on internet there is a dead end. It's difficult to find info on their manufacturer like other big brands eg Trojan, Victron etc. They claim to have a 20 years experience but yeah their history is not traceable like Trojan, Victron, Narada etc. The spec sheet has a sinetech address in Randburg. My question is if they are such a high quality brand(according to specs at least) why are they not selling internationally like other brands. Just asking

I'm not sure about Omnipower, looks like quite ordinary white-labelled stuff to me, but Sinetech are not known for great prices. Back when I was trawling for quotes for a solar install, they sent me a proposal that came in close to R500K, and it had so many bad mistakes in it, (like equipment mismatches), they had to redo it twice. Eventually after receiving the third version I gave up because I realised that I was dealing with a person with less knowledge than myself.

kkkkk yeah. So where are the other solar dealers getting the Omnipower batteries, are they getting them from Sinetech? If so why some of them sell the batteries at a cheaper price than sinetech like R300 less or so. Is there anyone to testify on their battery endurance, because the specs sheet indicates a cycle life  of 4200 @ 20% DOD. That's more than 10 years kkkk. I think there is need for a user review here. Something is no t adding up

Mmm, interesting. Do you know of anyone who uses their batteries in that way? 20% DoD, really?

Yeah for example at 48V 240Ah, 20% discharge equal to 2.5kWh. Then at 50% DOD that will be around 6kWh which is around. 6kWH or 6 units is alot of backup power. And it's quite a lot of usable power. And still at 50% DOD they claim it's gonna go for 2500 cycles
