What type of Battery Should You Consider

(This video is for educational purposes only)

When comparing batteries you can just compare Stated (Name Plate) Ah does not equal Ah capacity

DoD = Depth of Discharge

Trojan T105 Led Acid DoD is about 30% About 3,000 cycles approximately 3-5 Years Consistently Using about 50% of the battery

Lithium Ferrous Phosphate DoD is about 50% Simpliphi Batteries

Predetermined voltages 12v, 24v, 48v 1 SimpliPhi 24v battery = 4-Trojan T105 String as many as you want in Parallel.

About 10,000 cycles approximately 10 Years Consistently Uses about 80% of the Battery Built in Battery Management System (BMS) No overcharge No undercharge OCDP – OverCurrent Protection Device (Circuit Breaker)

Plug and Play w/standard inverter chargers available today

  • Can Safely discharge 100% while maintaining 98% efficiency
  • Has own Breaker
  • No restrictions on where you can install
  • Can be installed on its side
  • No Maintenance
  • Battery can FREEZE without Damage
  • Over the life of the system
  • Lithium Ferrous is about 1/2 the cost of Led Acid
  • Safe – No Fumes or off gassing


Formula – (Cost / kWh X Efficiency X #Cycles X DoD)

SIMPLIPHI 3.4-24V $3,675 3.4kWh 98% 10,000 80% $0.14
AQUION 24S-83 $995. 2.2kWh 90% 3,750 80% $0.17
TROJAN T105-RE $182 1.3kWh 89% 2,700 30% $0.19
TROJAN IND13-6v $1,158 4.12kWh 89% 3,700 30% $0.28
MK 8A8D $626 3kWh 90% 1,200 25% $0.77
