Why are Solsave Silicon Batteries Superior?

New in Africa!
The Solsave Silicone Power Battery

Patented – Silicone Electrolyte Characteristics:
Our unique silicone electrolyte does not corrode the internal plates of the batteries, hence increases capacity and prolongs the battery charging cycles.

Solsave’s universally recognized edge over commonly used lead-acid batteries is due to its high temperature performance and fast charging capability which is truly unique in Africa.

Normal VRLA batteries (Valve Regulated Lead-Acid) in general lose around 50% of cycle life for every 8˚C increase in temperature above 25˚C, while Solsave Silicon Power Technology conserves 60% of the energy that ordinary batteries lose due to this rise in temperature.

At higher temperatures above 40˚C virtually all VRLA batteries lose capacity and performance, however Solsave Silicon Power batteries always function with full capacity at temperatures even above 40˚C. For the use in appliances or vehicles where heat is generated, Solsave Silicon technology performs better than the competition.

Additionally, Solsave’s Silicon technology allows for fast charging capabilities, as the Solsave batteries can be recharged to 90% capacity within 60 minutes with high current charging.

Solsave Silicon Battery Range has many other advantages including a low self-discharge rate extending the general lifespan by 80% by reducing internal resistance.

There is no pollution and temperature rise during charging and operations, therefore isolation is not required for harmful gas emission, saving design and construction costs in many applications.

Solsave Silicon Power Battery’s applications range far and wide, including telecommunication systems, utility applications, transportation, UPS systems, data center machineries, all forms of renewable energy collection (predominantly solar and wind power energy systems) and many other backup applications and traction batteries for vehicles and forklifts.


  • World Changing – Extreme high and low temperature performance:
    -40˚C to +70˚C with minimum loss on charging cycles during temperature rise.
  • Convenient – Fast charging of 90% capacity within 60 minutes.
  • Superior – Higher specific energy, around 30 – 50% higher than lead acid batteries.
  • Smart – Low self discharge rate, around 20% every 2 years under ambient temperature due to low internal resistance.
  • Durable – Long cycle life: more than 2,000 cycles at 50% D.O.D. and up to 5,000 charging cycles for telecom & standby use.
  • Superb – Improved charging characteristics; no memory effect and can withstand high current charging and discharging.
  • Flexible – No minimum discharge voltage restriction, allowing charging capacity at all time without initial discharging procedures.
  • Eco-Friendly – No corrosion and no pollution due to Patented Silicone Electrolyte.
  • Child Friendly – No acid mist emission during charging and discharging.
  • 1 Year Warranty – Solsave Silicone Batteries are best in market.
  • Maintenance free – Closed battery requires zero maintenance.

Sungrid Group’s aim to bring power to the people, thereby enriching the lives of millions, has taken another step forward with the launch of its portable solar Education Kits. Powered by Ecoboxx, its flagship product, these kits are providing affordable solar power classroom solutions able to be used by ANY school, ANYwhere.

“Listed by the United Nations as number four in its business plan for the world, quality education is undoubtedly critical to a sustainable future,” says Paul Hubers, founder and director, Sungrid Group. “However, far too often access to this is fraught with challenges and lack of opportunity.”

Sungrid Group’s latest initiative sees it powering development in Africa’s rural areas. “Education transformation models require access to reliable electricity,” continues Hubers. Yet, Africa’s traditional power supply remains inconsistent at best. The Ecoboxx Education Kits seek to change this.
“Currently, we have two options available,” says Hubers. By bundling what is known as a bubblegum table together with an Ecoboxx, Sungrid is able to provide a solution for individual learning opportunities. Alternatively, by bundling multiple devices with an Ecoboxx capable of meeting larger power requirements, entire classroom solutions become possible. “The impact on learners has been extraordinary, including measurable literacy and numeracy improvement together with a noticeable increase in both engagement and school attendance.”
Taking it one step further, Sungrid is also in discussion with INTEL to leverage its Education Tablet with Stylus. “INTEL already enjoy huge traction within the education sector,” says Hubers. “We believe that combining its products with our portable solar power solutions will ultimately deliver the best overall offering for schools everywhere.”
