    BLUE NOVA LITHIUM POWER BANKS

    BlueNova, the high performance ultra-reliable energy storage solutions. Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFeYPO4) batteries have now become the leading technology in energy storage for the modern world. With transfer efficiencies of more than 96% @C2 charge and discharge rates (or 98%@C10), they deliver 10 times higher turn-around efficiencies than leading lead acid batteries.
    This feature implies major savings in the necessary size of the solar system required to charge the batteries.
    LiFeYPO4 batteries are capable of delivering up to 90% of their charge for more than 4000 times. This is achieved in ambient temperatures of more than 35C without any performance degradation. The batteries are perfectly suited for operation in warm African conditions. LiFeYPO4 batteries have more than 4 times the energy density than lead acid equivalents. This has great advantages for applications where light-weight energy storage is a requirement. Applications such as 44 vehicles, yachts and even apartment buildings benefit greatly from these light-weight batteries. No gassing, no ventilation.

    Experience the benefits of a new generation of energy storage solutions. At BlueNova we offer batteries
    for a wide range of applications. From 12V, 24V, 36V, 48V up to 800V. Storage capacity ranges from 1
    kWh for small residential applications to 1080 kWh for industrial applications.

    LiFeYPO4 benefits

    • Shelf Price < Lead Acid shelf price
    • Daily cycle for more than 10 years
    • Weight < 25 % of Lead Acid
    • Volume < 33% of Lead Acid
    • 100% Safe
    • 100% Environmentally friendly


    LiFeYPO4 features

    • No life degradation up to 40 degrees C
    • LiFeYPO4 = 12kg / kWh
    • Lead Acid = 60kg / kWh
    • Charge efficiency > 98% @ C10
    • Discharge efficiency > 98% @ C10

    "Shelf Price < Lead Acid shelf price"

    This sounds incredible!

    Currently have 6x 150a 12v trojans in my 24v setup. (450a)
    My usage is between 200-250AH a day for the last 5years. (still going strong for now, but looking at replacement options when the time comes)

    Am I correct that the 26v 4kwh will give me 150AH and the 26v 8kwh will give me 300AH? (or how does this work, probably need the 26v 8kwh to be in the same usage range or slightly better)

    What is the price on these units? probably need the 26v 8kwh to be in the same usage range or slightly better

    Edit: Inverter is 5kva Microcare 24v - runs 3x 1.2kw water pumps

    Dear Kamakazi,

    The 8kWh option is closer to what you have currently (although slightly higher)

    At 7000cycles with a 70%DOD you may expect a service life of nearly 20 years; which is incredible compared to Lead Acid.

    What kind of warranty do they have and how modular are they can cells in a battery be replaced if they go bad?

    You need to solve and be 100% sure of the logistics of charging them.

    Hi Skylark,

    Most Blue Nova lithium batteries come standard with a 10 year warranty; with the exception of the BN13V-77-1K, BN13V-154-2K and BN26V-77-2K. The latter three have a 5 year warranty.

    Lithium batteries unlike Lead Acids have built in management systems which regulate the charge and discharge parameters of the battery.

    Blue Nova batteries also undergo testing prior to shipment and therefore the chances of having a bad cell scenario is greatly if not completely reduced.

    In the highly unlikely event of a faulty cell the battery will need to be returned for evaluation and the replacement thereof.

    How woul you integrate the battery to a standard charge controller.

    Hi Fluffy,

    Depending on the charge controller it may be possible to simply "plug and play" the Blue Nova lithium battery; as Blue Nova batteries are serial compatible with Victron, SMA and Ingeteam products to name a few.

    In the event that there is no serial or CANBUS compatibility from the charge controller/inverter then one may manually input the voltage settings for the Blue Nova Lithium battery which will be provided together with the battery.

    Kind regards

    Is the serial or CANBUS an industry standard.

    If there is no serial, how is cell level control done, I assume by the integrated BMS of the battery ?

    Hi Fluffy,

    CANBUS protocol allows electronic control units to communicate with each and some are standardized.

    Serial compatibility makes the installation process quicker and easier and ensures more accurate communication and/or reporting between the charge controller/inverter and lithium battery.

    However the system will work just as well if the voltage values are set up manually (when there is a lack of serial compatibility).

    The batteries have a managment system which monitors each cell individually - thus keeping the battery operting within safe parameters.

    Kind regards

    Thank you,

    I'm really interested in this product and will review again if my current batteries start showing signs of decline.
    I hope the prices come down in future when these new batteries start to become the norm, but at the current price, lead acid is still more affordable as I can replace current setup about 4.5 times at same cost.
    I'll keep on watching this space.
