Sirius Practically Charges as Fast as your Inverter or Charger Allows – Eliminates the Need For Large Battery Banks.
The Sirius Super Capacitor Module can theoretically be charged in less than 32 seconds without affecting cycle life. Various models are available with different charge and discharge ratings, ranging from 1C to 135C.
The popular model in the Solar PV and Home use market is the 1.35C Model, which means the unit can be fully Charged or Discharge 1.35 times in an hour. This is faster that any normal application in the Solar PV and home use market will require.
You can charge and discharge the 1.35C model in 44 minutes, which makes this well suited even for sites where you energy storage is recharge by generator of the grid from time to time.
Faster charging models delivers significant advantages in a wide range of deployments such as in electric vehicles or utility grade frequency regulation.
An infrastructure of fast-charging stations eliminates the need for large battery banks with extended range.
Fast-charging of the Sirius provides utilities with real time response capability to frequency regulation.
