All in one?
Yes - hybrid possibility (AC, DC, AC-DC) (Storion-SMILE-B5-GW 4.6kW)
AC: when you already have a solar PV installed. Can function regardless of the type of solar inverter already installed.
AC coupled - requires solar inverter (can charge from the off peak grid)
DC: Built in 4.6 kW hybrid inverter. Meaning you don't need an inverter when installing solar panels & can provide backup during a blackout.
10 years performance, 5 years product
10 years at 70% capacity if charged solely with solar power
or when reached 37MWh (3,200 cycles, around 8.8 years if cycled once a day) of stored energy if also drawing energy from grid.
