FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long have you been in business?

IHT Energy was established in 2019 based on a need for quality Lithium batteries for a wide variety of application.  We have enjoyed great success, and are growing from strength to strength.

How may batteries can I have in parallel?

There is no theoretical maximum,but normally <15pcs parallel in real application, as IHT Energy’s batteries are infinitely scalable.  All system designs and installations should be carried out by a suitably qualified person, ensuring they are installed in accordance with our manuals, specifications, warranty documents and relevant local requirements.

Can you parallel multiple cabinets?

There is no theoretical maximum,but normally

What inverters, UPS or charging sources work with your batteries?

IHT Energy’s batteries are designed as a lead acid replacement and can be charged or discharged by almost any charge or discharge device that does not require battery communications.  Some examples of brands (but not limited to) are: Selectronic, SMA (Sunny Island), Victron, Studer, AERL, MorningStar, Outback Power, Midnight Solar, CE+T, Schneider, Alpha Technologies, C-Tek, Projector and lots more.

How does your BMS work?

The BMS plays a crucial role to protect the battery against over and under voltage and over and under temperature. The BMS also balances the cells. This system secures the battery longevity and improves battery performance. Also charging is optimized and charging and discharging cycles are stored in its memory. The data can be read on the display, PC or online with the optional Telematics system.

What is different about your batteries?

IHT Energy’s batteries are constructed using cylindrical cells and LFP (LiFePO4) Lithium Ferro-phosphate chemistry. The LiFe, and Eco P and PS batteries, have an internal BMS allowing each battery to manage itself. Their features and benefits are:

Each battery manages itself.
If one battery shuts down, the rest keep powering the system.
Suitable for applications on or off the grid, domestic or commercial, industrial or utility.
High Operating Temperature Range.
Cobalt Free.
Safe LFP (LiFePO4) lithium chemistry used.
Strong, robust cylindrical cell technology used.
Infinitely scalable.
Capacity scalable.Easy to Use.Easy to Install.Easy to Maintain.
What is the difference between the lithium in your batteries and the lithiums that catch fire?
We use a safe lithium chemistry called LiFePO4 also known as LFP or Lithium Ferro-phosphate. It does not suffer from thermal runaway at low temperatures like cobalt base lithiums do. Cobalt can be found in lithiums like NMC – Nickel Manganese Cobalt (LiNiMnCoO2) and NCA – Lithium Nickel Cobalt Aluminium Oxide (LiNiCoAIO2).

Can your batteries be installed outside?

IHT Energy has a range of cabinets available to suit most installations.  Our Rack series is suited to indoor applications, whereas our power wall series is suited to both indoor and outdoor applications. Your system designer will be able to guide you on selecting the right cabinet for your application.

What maintenance do I need to do to my batteries?

IHT Energy’s batteries are essentially maintenance free, however please refer to our manual for some recommendations that are optional.
