The sonnenBatterie is an “All-in-One” storage system that integrates a smart energy manager, bi-directional inverter and high performance Lithium Iron Phosphate battery modules which come with a market-leading warranty of 10,000 charge cycles and a service life of 20 years. With its unique modular design, the sonnenBatterie can be sized to suit the needs of the end user with storage sizes ranging from 2 kWh to 16 kWh.
