What Capacity Does A Sungrow Come In?

The battery is modular, coming in 3.2kWh modules. One unit can have a minimum of 3 modules (9.6kWh) and scale up to 8 modules (25.6kWh). Once you hit the 8 modules max you can go bigger but you need another unit. Going beyond one unit is uncommon giving the sheer size you end up with but it is very achievable .

How Does It Work?

The Sungrow battery is designed to be used with a Sungrow inverter. Fortunately, this is great because their inverter range is very good. Outside of that, it works like any other solar battery. 

It will automatically store excess power from your solar generation so you can use it later when your usage exceeds your generation. 

Where Is It Made?

China. All Sungrow products are made in China. 

How Long Is The Warranty?

The warranty is 10 years out of the box with one key variable. They will basically guarantee that at the end of the 10 years you will still have at least 70% of the batteries original nominal capacity or at the end of 4000 cycles, whichever comes first.
