It seems that the whole world is hoping for a Pylontech battery delivery. Demand has grown significantly and it seems that Pylontech are struggling to catch up. Deliveries promised in June have been pushed back, and now we (and everyone else) are being told that it will be the end of August before we have any.
So we are keeping Pylontech based kits on the site, but on the basis that the batteries are on back order and won’t be available until the end of August. In the meantime we are going to offer some kits with BYD batteries, which have a superior specification to Pylontech in terms of cycle life, but which are more expensive. Over their lifetime they’ll work out the same, but its a bigger outlay in the short term. We wanted to offer a solution that we are confident will last, has the same warranty as Pylontech, and which is scalable in the same way. Also it has been fully tested and approved by Victron, ensuring that the BYD battery system integrates fully with Victron equipment.
