    The salt water battery suffered from many problems.  190 kwh in a container,  way to big. I want to know what they did with $190 million in venture funds and debt.   Lithium-ion batteries average 3500 watts in continuous wattage,  we are low but working on raising the number (we are at 3000).

    Thank you for your comment.  Even though it is a redox battery (notice I did not say redox flow battery, because no flow, no moving parts).  It will install just like a lithium-ion battery.  Cycling for over 20 years, but with a 15 year warranty for 90% capacity.  Cycling every day.  No lithium-ion battery can compete with the cycling, the environmental neutrality (if you run into it with your car, just mop up the liquid), physical safety (no over heating), and priced and sized to compete with lithium-ion batteries.  I am working with a major University, this is a break through and I just want your honest opinion on how it will do in the market, your best guess.

    If you have any questions I can answer I will, but since we are still in development, I have to proprietary issues.  I hope you can understand.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks for your reply .It has given me some thoughts regarding my black pvc pipes that heat my shower water.Sunny midday in the winter almost too hot-in the summer I have to wait till evening to let the water cool down.

    Thank you for your comment.   I am not selling anything, so no reason to BS anyone.  this battery is not for every application, but we are working on getting the continuous wattage up to at least 4kw and the capacity to 20 kwh.  The battery has been cycled for over 15K cycles with very little loss of capacity, less then 10%.  We are still in development that is why I posted this, to get some input on what we need to do.

    this battery will not solve everyone's problems, but I feel it has a place in the market and I want to see what others think.  the battery eliminates many of the problems of lithium-ion batteries (environmental, safety and cycling life).  I know there is a market.  Let me know what you think.

    thanks,

    I appreciate your comment.  The battery is still in development so I have proprietary agreements I can not violate.  Environmentally, if you run into the battery with your car, you just mop up the liquid.  Unlike lithium-ion batteries which need a hazmat team to disassemble. Some of the chemistry is material that is thrown away by other processes, so we believe we can price the battery below any lithium-battery presently on the market.

    I really appreciate your insight and will answer any questions I can.

    thanks,

    Thank you for responding.  The battery is real, being developed by a major US university.  If it comes to market it will be the most advanced battery on the market.  A redox flow battery without the flow, no moving parts, will cycle for 20 years, environmentally neutral, physically safe and sized and priced to compete with Lithium-ion batteries.  I think that is pretty great.  Still in development, that's why I can not tell you the magic sauce.  I have no reason to BS.  I just wanted to know, if everything I am saying is true (which it is) how do you think it will do in the market.

    I am asking for honest comments about a battery we are trying to bring it to market.  This battery will be much better for the environment and the pocket book then an lithium-ion battery presently on the market. 

    Look at the specs and let me know what you think, and if you have questions I will try to answer then, short of proprietary information.

    thanks,

    Hello Sir,
    I’m having a problem with one of my 2004 parallel stacked SW4048’s. It started dropping AC1 and switching to inverting on a regular basis (about every 10 minutes during the day, never at night or early morning) and switch back in within 5 minutes. Grid power has checked out ok and all my large loads are good. Once in a great while (maybe once every 1 or 2 months) the inverter/ charger circuit breaker trips on this same inverter. I recently disconnected the solar panels from the system and the problem inverter held until I reconnected them and it went back to acting up. Also, the cooling fan is not coming on in this inverter, is overheating causing the switching problem? Is it usually the fan motor or switch at this age and is it repairable? Your thoughts please?...thanks very much, Vic.
