    5-year prorated warranty

    What does that mean?

        • +36

          Got bored, read the linked document. 0-12 months, free replacement. 13-60 months, you have to pay the pro-rata amount equivalent to how many months of the 5 year warranty it has been since purchase. Say 30 months in, is 50% of warranty, so you get a replacement for 50% of the price.

          So basically a 12 months warranty.

      They can't answer simple questions….

        A warranty is a type of guarantee that a manufacturer or similar party makes regarding the condition of its product.
        Prorated warranted products manufactured by Renogy are warranted to be free from defects in workmanship and materials under normal use and service. The warranty is in effect from the date of purchase by the user (the “Purchaser”).

          So why was that hard to say in the first place ?

    • +6

      At least if you buy it from amazon there’s an extra layer of protection when it craps out in 30 days

        From what I've seen renogy make pretty good gear.

  • Can this be connected in series up to [email protected]?
    Maximum number in parallel?

    What is cycle life @ 80% dod & @100%

    Warranty isn't clearly defined, neg from me.

    Seller posted the same product before and made it look like be was a consumer lolz.

    • Haha, nice find. I wonder how many of this the seller will be "purchasing" for their setup?

    The problem with this type of warranty is that it is against full retail price.
    This price is often not the regular selling price so warranty is worthless.

      It's not really in this case however the way they have formulated it the results end up similar

      It's the Original purchase price x (1- remaining warranty period in months/total warranty period in months).

      So if this died at 24 months you'd need to cough up $120 to replace the battery
      If it died at 36 months you'd need to pay $180 to replace the battery

      Edit: Actually on 2nd thoughts its not that bad compared to others, at least you always get some reduction, some other companies have it so
      it really works out you are only getting a 3 year warranty by the time you pay the 60% off the inflated RRP

    What cells do you use and what BMS?

    • Cells are described on the specs tab. BMS likely proprietry.

      • Sorry, I meant what brand and what capacity per cell, I can't see that (though I could just be going blind).

      There's a tear down video here: It's the 100ah model which uses I think 4x 25ah pouch cells in parallel - so chances are this is the same using 2x25ah packs in parallel.
      Looks pretty decent quality

      probably prismatic LiFePO4, BMS is cheap as

  • Compared to some of the other lithium batteries on the market, Renogy are crap…

    Better off with Enerdrive or Invicta and pay for a full warranty

  • Shonky warranty
