About BYD

BYD (Build Your Dreams) was founded in 1995 in China. BYD is originally known for manufacturing batteries for electric vehicles (EV), but in Australia, they are mostly known for producing a variety of lithium batteries for solar power systems. BYD “B-Box” batteries use the safest lithium battery chemistry-Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) – widely recognised as one of the safest chemistry for batteries.

Reasons why we like BYD

  • Has a local Australian office for support.
  • Despite the fact that many people haven’t heard of BYD, it is reportedly even bigger than Tesla – with around 220 000 employees!
  • High power output – The BYD batteries can supply continuous power equal to their nominal storage capacityThat is, the BBox 10.0 can output 10.24kW of power continuously, until flat. Not many batteries can match that output.
  • Excellent peak power output – Putting out around twice their continuous output for 3 minutes is far better than most batteries on the market. This discharge capability makes the BYD ideal for off-grid applications where surging loads are used.
  • 10-year manufacturer’s warranty
  • Natural cooling – The BYD BBox is designed with natural cooling to provide optimum efficiency.
  • Expandable The modular design allows for flexible expansion of the system size over the lifetime of the system.
