What You Should Know About Manufacturing LiFePO4 Batteries
If you’re wondering how lithium batteries are made, you probably already know that they basically run our entire world. These energy-dense little pods pack a punch, and they power everything from our smartphones to our electric vehicles. If we didn’t have lithium batteries, we would spend much more time tethered to an outlet. Our cellphones might not even fit into our pockets without this technology. So how are lithium batteries made?
10 Van Life Essentials to Get You on the Road

1 Million European Homes Now Powered By Solar Batteries
Solar battery-powered homes are becoming increasingly popular, particularly in Germany. Total residential battery capacity in Europe is expected to reach 9.3 GWh by the end of 2022, powering over 1 million households, according to the most recent SolarPower Europe research.
The First Fully Solar-Powered Car Is In Production
Imagine an electric car that you can drive for months without charging. That's the idea behind the Lightyear O, the first solar-powered sedan.
What Going Off the Grid Really Looks Like
I thrive on the reenergizing effects of nature, and escape to the mountains, beach, or desert whenever I can. It’s something that’s become increasingly possible for many thanks to advances in solar panels, battery storage, data coverage, and flexible work-from-anywhere policies that have proliferated in the days since COVID-19. Now people can get their work done from just about any place that brings them joy.
Value of Stationary Storage Market for Lithium-ion Batteries Will Rise As Costs Fall
Stationary storage will be key to the transition from fossil fuels to renewables energy. GMI expects lithium ion battery fixed storage solutions to significantly increase its market share.
What Are the Differences Between Amps, Volts, Watts？
Amps, volts, and watts are three basic concepts you will repeatedly deal with when working on any electrical system. A fourth being resistance which is measured in ohms. It may seem overwhelming, but you don’t need an engineering degree to understand what electricity is and how to use it to your advantage.
What You Need To Know About Energy Storage
Energy storage can “firm up” renewable resources, maximizing their value to the grid. In addition, energy storage can reduce the cost of electricity (storing energy when it is cheapest, dispatching it when it is most expensive), and increase the reliability of our aging electric grid increasingly strained by climate change.
Is It Dangerous to Mix Battery Sizes?
When you’re building a battery bank for your off-grid application, it can be tempting to mix and match different battery sizes. Simply put, the answer is NO.
