Sungrow Battery SBR Series
Modular Sungrow Solar Battery Solution
The Sungrow Solar Battery SBR series is a smart, modular, residential energy storage solution based on 3.2kWh storage modules that stack on top of each other. Therefore the battery size can be to increased from 9.9kWH all the way to 25.6kWh.
Standard solar systems and many solar and battery solution cannot offer protection in a power blackout. However the Sungrow system automatically provides backup power for the home in a power outage.
Established in 1997, Sungrow are a global leader in solar technology. 1800 staff work in R&D resulting in over 3100 patents. With over 20% of the inverter market Sungrow are a large force in Australian solar and moreover backed with a local warehouse and support centre.
Sungrow Battery Advantages
The Sungrow battery is charged from excess electricity produced by the solar panels in the solar system. The electricity produced by the panels goes to power the household requirements first, any that is not used by the home is sent to the battery. This power is then used to power the home at night.

Sungrow Protects Your Home from Power Outages
Hybrid Sungrow inverters are used in conjunction with the batteries, that’s why the battery solution can offer automatic protection from blackouts for your home or business. Standard solar and many standard solar and battery packages cannot do this.
The inverter detects if the grid loses power and will switch over to battery backup power to run the home in under 10 milliseconds. This means there is no interruption to power for the home.
This functionality needs to be set up and configured during the installation of the battery.
Modular Capacity Expansion
Battery Sizes and Models
Being a modular battery means the battery capacity can be increased in 3.2kWh units from 9.6kWh through to 25.6kWh. If you first purchase the smaller battery you can later expand it. However there are there are technical limitations regarding this.
The modules are “plug and play” and no wiring is required when expanding the battery making it an easy job to increase capacity. Note that capacity increases an only be undertaken in the early part of the battery life.
Moreover up to four 25.4kWh batteries can be joined in parallel to give a massive capacity of over 100kWh.
High Performance and Safety
Sungrow SBR batteries offer 100% usable energy coupled with 30A continuous charging and discharging for high performance.
Lithium-ion phosphate battery chemistry is used in the modules which is a leading chemistry in terms of performance and safety. Being fully certified the battery safety protections include:
- Over / under voltage protection
- Over current protection
- Over / under temperature protection
- DC breaker.
iSolar Cloud Monitoring Platform
The iSolar platform allows for the monitoring and management of the complete system all in the one app.
It is available through an app on your phone or via a web browser and allows you to monitor system power production, battery usage, and home usage and the information is refreshed at 10 minute intervals.
You can see how much charge is in the battery and monitor battery usage. Installation of an optional energy meter will also allow you see how much power is being drawn for the grid and monitor power consumption.
The platform can also send alerts in the event of an issue with the solar system.
