Do Power Back Batteries require maintenance?
PB Battery Systems batteries do not need any maintenance whatsoever.
Do Power Back Batteries need to be fully charged to be used again?
PB Battery Systems offers robust performance at partial states of charge (PSOC). PB Battery Systems can cycle or stand at any PSOC without damaging the battery.
How well do Power Back Batteries deal with temperature extremes of outdoor environments?
PB Battery Systems batteries can operate anywhere from -20°C to 65°C. Any temperature within this range will not degrade cycle or calendar life, nor have a major impact on performance.
How do Power Back Batteries compare to lead acid batteries?
PB Battery Systems can be fully discharged without degrading the batteries or reducing cycle life. They deliver 2,000 cycles at 80% DOD. At the same depth of discharge, the competition's lead acid batteries only provide anywhere from 250 to 1,500 cycles. To extend cycle life, lead acid systems are usually sized to cycle less than 50% DOD.
