KiloVault, a provider of residential and commercial renewable energy solutions, unveiled a new series of deep-cycle lithium-based batteries. The KiloVault HLX+ series of solar lithium batteries offers the features of both the HLX and CHLX series. Key upgrades allow for ease of use and battery bank performance, and premium quality at the same competitive price of earlier models.
“With the HLX+ line, we feel KiloVault is going to have a competitive advantage over other lithium brands by packing in the most features into a single form factor,” said Product Manager Andrea Belford.
The HLX+ series has incorporated several key improvements based on customer feedback:
- The new HLX+ runs hot and cold so there is no need for the customer to choose between the CHLX and HLX versions – now they have the benefits of both in one battery. Whether they are in very warm or very cold environments, they can be assured of extremely efficient operation.
- A push-button LED display shows instantaneous state-of-charge (SOC) readings, giving a better understanding of the health of the batteries.
- The optional HLX+ Bridge enables communications between strings of batteries in a bank, providing coordinated charging, discharging and heating cycles.
Designed with versatility in mind, the HLX+ serves as a drop-in replacement for lead-acid batteries in a renewable energy system, providing more energy and a higher cycle count with less weight. The HLX+ boasts some of the highest surge ratings in its class, perfect for kitchen appliances or large power tools. The HLX+ offers built-in Bluetooth and the convenient KiloVault HLX app for Android and iPhone, providing easy monitoring of battery health and performance.
