Mercedes-Benz Home Battery

Jun 18, 2015

Category: Tech

The tech world was stunned earlier this year when Tesla announced their plans for the Powerwall, a mass-produced home battery, and now it appears that the company will have some competition from Mercedes-Benz. Mercedes-Benz announced plans to offer their own battery packs in Germany, with the batteries shipping as early as September.

Mercedes’ battery packs are originally designed with cars in mind, allowing the cells to load up on solar energy overnight to be used throughout the off-peak hours. The company also notes that buyers will be able to combine up to eight packs for a total of 20 kWh. Pricing information for these Mercedes branded Daimler home batteries has not yet been announced, but their competitors, Tesla, have systems that start at $3,000. Accumotive is currently taking registrations for the product now. [Purchase]
