The solution to the fear of being without electricity!

The fear of running out of battery life probably entered our lives at the millennium, and more and more people have been living with it for nearly a quarter of a century. Anker, like many other companies in this field, is trying to help you avoid this fear with cables and portable chargers. But the company is gradually expanding its portable power supply solutions… With Solix, Anker’s new and considerably larger battery series, Anker will be able to keep an entire house running for those who want to be less dependent on local power grids and frequent outages.

A more reasonable solution…

While solar technology is becoming more affordable and accessible for many homeowners, it comes with its own challenges, especially reliability issues. You can’t always be sure that a rooftop solar system will generate enough power to meet your needs 24/7, so it’s probably more reasonable to pair it with a battery solution to store power when it’s plentiful and make it available when you need it…

That’s where the Solix storage system comes in. It will be available next year in various capacities and sizes, with the largest option being roughly the size of a small refrigerator. The batteries are also designed to be modular, so multiple battery units can be daisy-chained to provide more power output and capacity as needed, from 5kWh (kWh: kilowatt-hours), which is enough to “keep an average-sized home running” for a few hours, up to 180kWh. This can keep the electricity flowing for a week.

For comparison, Solix can produce 180 kWh, while Tesla Powerwall 2 can produce 135 kWh. Anker says that Solix’s backup system, based on lithium iron phosphate batteries, is integrated with the company’s power management, hardware and software and will be compatible with existing solar systems and new solutions in the future. The company promises that Solix will also be able to charge electric vehicles in the future.

Of course, Anker is not only offering Solix to homeowners with solar panels, a garden or a blank wall to fill with batteries. The Solix RS40, which is designed specifically for European apartments and can be installed on a balcony, is already on sale. Next year, modular Solix Solarbank batteries will also be available, providing several hours of emergency power, ranging from 1.6 kWh to 3.2 kWh.

The only thing Anker has not disclosed about the new Solix series is the price. Anker has also merged its portable power supply line known as PowerHouse with Solix. Anker PowerHouse 767 has been updated to Anker Solix F2000. The $2,000 price tag of the Anker PowerHouse 767, which provides over 2 kWh of power in total, gives an idea about the possible price of 180 kWh.


The ancient idea tries to provide the most accurate information to its readers in all the content it publishes.
