KiloVault, a provider of innovative and affordable residential and commercial renewable energy solutions, this week unveiled the new 1200 HLX and 1200 CHLX heavy-duty deep-cycle lithium batteries. These 1,200 Watt-hour-capacity batteries complement KiloVault’s existing 1,800 Wh and 3,600 Wh models, and handle 80A of continuous charging current and 100A of continuous discharging current.
The smaller capacity and reduced weight of the 1200 HLX and 1200 CHLX make them ideally suited for applications such as marine and RV/camper use, golf carts, medical devices, and off-grid solar energy storage.
Like all HLX/CHLX batteries, the new 1,200 Watt-hour models can be used in 12V, 24V, or 48V configurations and feature Bluetooth communication for easy health and performance monitoring. This flexibility – combined with a 5,000-cycle lifespan (at 80% depth of discharge) and low cost/kWh cycle – offers customers exceptional value for their energy storage needs. Even after 2,000 cycles at 100% depth of discharge, a 1200 HLX or 1200 CHLX battery will retain 80% or more of its original 1,200 Watt-hour storage capacity.
KiloVault’s HLX and CHLX series batteries do not require active cooling, as the the lithium iron phosphate (LFP) chemistry used in their cells isn’t subject to the thermal runaway issues that other lithium technologies may experience.
These batteries do not require regular watering, desulphating, or equalizing and do not produce dangerous off-gassing like lead-acid batteries do – making them safe for use in your garage or even inside your home.
HLXs and CHLXs are incredibly safe and low-maintenance batteries, and outperform comparable lead-acid batteries by storing and discharging energy more efficiently to yield 12% more usable stored energy.
The 1200 CHLX features the same internal heating technology as KiloVault’s other CHLX batteries, which allows it to continue charging at subzero temperatures. As the ambient temperature dips below freezing (32F/0C), the charging current is rerouted through a heating film in the battery, allowing it to maintain an internal temperature above freezing. Once this is accomplished, the battery can resume normal charging.

Highly efficient grid-scale electricity storage at fifth of cost
Warwick UK (SPX) Jan 25, 2021
Researchers in WMG at the University of Warwick, in collaboration with Imperial College London, have found a way to enhance hybrid flow batteries and their commercial use. The new approach can store electricity in these batteries for very long durations for about a fifth the price of current technologies, with minimal location restraints and zero emissions.
The researchers enhanced three hybrid flow cells using nitrogen doped graphene (exposed to nitrogen plasma) in a binder-free electrophoresis t … read more
