  1. Peter John DIXON says:

    Lead Acid batteries can only be discharged to about 50% before they start to suffer permanent damage, lithium can drop virtually to empty without damage. Charge times for LA batteries are also much longer than for lithium. Equivalent outputs would weigh twice as much with LA batteries.
    Having said all that, I’m still using 2 x 100ah lead Acid batteries with two 120 watt solar panels and a 2kw inverter and seldom run into any problems but if it’s not a bright day after 6 brews using a 1200w kettle for 2 mugs of tea I have to revert to using the gas hob!

  2. John Cork says:

    A correctly-sized charging system involving solar panels, charge controller, lead-acid batteries, and an inverter would provide almost identical performance to what has been described here in this article, at a fraction of the cost of using lithium as the choice of battery.

    The article, in my opinion, is simply an advertisement for lithium batteries, and should have been clearly stated as such in your publication.
