Silicone Battery

SolarLine will soon carry a full line of the very latest in energy storage technology; Rechargeable Silicone batteries. All SolarLine portable solar generators will soon come standard with this amazing innovative technology.

SILICONE RECHARGEABLE BATTERY FACTS:

  • Storage capacity as high as 1.75 times of international standards;
  • They exceed the international recharge acceptance capacity standards by 2.68 times.
  • Have a high current recharge (0.8°C – 1.0°C);
  • Have a high current discharge resulting in a battery that can be discharged at 30C within 8 seconds with no damage to the battery;
  • Working temperature range (-50°C to +70°C);
  • Long life span under normal working conditions;
  • Low self-discharge: Full charge can be maintained for a year when stored at normal temperatures.
  • No recharge memory;
  • No acid mist emission when charging or discharging;
  • No pollution from the electrolyte;
  • The cycling charge life is as long as 10 years;
  • Over 400 times of full recharging (normal acid battery is 200 times);
  • Functions normally at 6,000 meters beneath the sea;
  • Environmentally Friendly: the electrolyte can be used as fertilizer and the rest recycled;
  • Maintenance Free.
