The prices for solar power storage have never been so high. Only one manufacturer breaks the ranks: FM-Solar is currently charging 2,550 euros for its 10 kWh storage unit. In contrast, competitors are asking at least twice as much for a comparable product.

And it’s also flexible
Battery storage from FM-Solar is compatible with many inverters, including microinverters from the manufacturers Growatt, Deye, SMA, Victron, Solis, Goodwund and Sungrow. It is a LiFePO4 battery with built-in battery management function. The power storage is intended for wall mounting and is compatible with most inverters with a 48 V / 51.2 V battery connection. LiFePO4 stands for the latest generation of lithium cells from BYD.
Only interesting for private customers
The company FM-Solar is known for importing PV batteries with its own label from China. Since the seller buys the PV storage in very large quantities, he can offer cheaper prices than the competition. Despite being imported from China, the batteries have the necessary CE and UN certifications.
A 10 kWh battery storage system is currently available from the retailer’s eBay shop for only EUR 2550. According to the sales page, the waiting time is 1-2 months. Due to problems in the supply chains, the delivery times should be longer in some cases. Interested parties must therefore bring patience. Therefore, the dealer allows a withdrawal from the purchase during the waiting period.
However, only private customers can order because of the elimination of VAT. As a result, no VAT is shown on the invoice. Also, one should not underestimate the weight of the package of almost 100 kg, which is brought by a forwarding agency.
