Solar Batteries: Helping You store the Sun’s Energy
A Better Way to Provide Power backup
Microtex solar batteries have superior quality – for one reason! All components are manufactured in-house!
Right from the raw materials, we manufacture the complete battery & all its components. This guarantees that we control the quality & performance of our batteries rather than relying on outside vendors for the various battery components. Complete control of the quality of components ensures you get a solar battery made with consistency & the legendary reliability of Microtex products
Microtex specializes in solar batteries for solar photovoltaic systems, wind hybrids, and solar power plants. We supply batteries for the solar industry in the form of storage systems for standby, emergency power UPS systems, railway signalling and telecommunications.
If your industry has unique requirements, Microtex takes pride in working to strategize customer-specific solar battery solutions.
Solar batteries are fast becoming a cornerstone industry for our manufacturing considerations, and because of this, we are investing in further technological studies to provide reliable power storage at an affordable price.
How Our Solar Batteries Differ
Unlike many of our competitors, we manufacture in-house most of the components of a battery and produce the entire battery, we don’t buy in ready-made batteries or components of a battery from third party suppliers. We continuously maintain our quality, and you can be sure our solar batteries are delivered as agreed, on-time- every time.
As with all of our batteries, we thoroughly life-cycle test our products before offering them to the marketplace and they are fully charged before delivery- saving you time and money.
Our after-sales service is exemplary as can be testified by our existing customers, giving you the confidence in us every step of the way.
Our batteries for the solar industry range from capacities of 100Ah to 5000Ah (ampere-hours) with 2v cells in AGM and Tubular Gel (whilst our monobloc ranges are 40Ah to 200Ah in 6v or 12v in Low maintenance flooded batteries or in 12v SMF AGM monoblocs or in 12v Tubular Gel monoblocs)
The methods employed for manufacturing flooded Microtex monobloc batteries means maintenance is extremely low during its service life.
Our flooded solar batteries require water top-ups once every twelve months or more for trouble-free peace of mind in remote locations.
What do YOU need from Solar Batteries?
We have strived to ensure that we meet every standard expected from our customers and the appropriate governing bodies.
These include (but are not limited to);
1) Safety, first and foremost. For example, optimal pressure venting and low flammable materials.
2) Durability provided by the use of high-purity raw-materials, robust designs coupled with high process controls.
3) Completely recyclable materials, environment-friendly batteries
4) Low maintenance or Maintenance free with high dependability.
5) Optimal grid design for higher power output.
6) High cyclic efficiency.
7) Options for front or top access for maintenance.
8) Packed to meet transport requirements.
Things to Consider When Choosing Efficient Solar Batteries
● Battery composition (lead-acid, lithium-ion, sodium-sulphur for example).
● Discharge cycles (depth of discharge versus loss of lifespan).
● Cost over lifespan comparison.

Deep Cycle Solar Power Battery Systems for Solar panels off-grid solutions
Solar batteries are c10 rating deep cycle battery. The use of solar off-grid energy supply is becoming increasingly popular to power your home, & for domestic, industrial and municipal applications.
There are distinct advantages of lead-acid solar battery technology compared to lithium ion battery & other electrochemical systems for energy storage. Affordability, reliability, recyclability and safety are key issues in choosing the right battery for a particular application and lead-acid batteries will score highly in these categories.
Due to the variable nature of renewable energy sources, many of the installations include an energy storage system to enable supply for peak demands and when energy generation is limited.
There are alternative storage technologies like lithium ion battery but the method of calculating the size of the lead-acid battery required is common to all chemistries. To ensure a system that satisfies the usage requirements it is necessary to obtain a reasonably detailed picture of the loading and run time autonomy of the solar battery. Allowances must be made for the efficiency of the components in the system in converting energy from the input source to the demand on the solar battery. For this, the size of the individual load, the total load and the individual run times are crucial factors in calculating an accurate battery capacity for the system requirement.
Whether as the sole source of electricity or as a hybrid fuel supply, the characteristics of the equipment and the application need to be thoroughly understood to design and specify an effective and trouble-free installation of a solar system. To provide electricity during the night, either all or in part, from a solar photovoltaic array requires solar battery for storage of electrical energy. A meticulous approach to calculating the autonomy load will also ensure that the solar battery selection will be accurate. A correct battery specification will ensure not only a satisfactory autonomy but also a long and cost-effective solar battery life.
When you do buy a battery whether solar battery banks for solar panels & battery for your home, an electric bike or a UPS and inverter battery backup system or a traction battery for forklifts don’t you wish you knew more about it? How do lead-acid batteries work? What is the battery life? Depth of discharge?
Factors including, what are the differences between types and models, and how about the different chemistries & battery backup? They can be expensive. In a commercial or domestic application what is the payback, what is the battery life and the cost of replacement of a lead acid battery? The size you need, the ampere hour, amount of energy, the space available, the energy efficiency of lead acid battery and recharge time? And then, there is the hidden costs of safety, disposal and the carbon footprint.
The efficiency of the battery & amount of energy in Photovoltaic system
The basic principle of operation for a Solar Photovoltaic or renewable energy supply is that it has to convert power (watts) into a form which has a controlled voltage for either storage or direct use through an inverter or DC: DC converter where there is a constant voltage supply. Each operation from the power supply to the load will have an efficiency loss which must be considered when calculating the amount of energy available for the autonomous period. The total efficiency of the system depends upon the number of stages between the power supply, the load and the % efficiency at each stage.
