HLX/CHLX installation

Hello KiloVault,

Can the 1800 Wh batteries be installed on their side? I searched the manual and there was no note specifying that the batteries need to be installed upright. Please advise.

Thank for your time and response.



Hello Anthony,

Thank you very much for your question.

You are right, orientation is not mentioned in the manual.  Because of how their components are packed, all HLX and CHLX batteries must be installed upright.

I'm interested in the 3600 version, ready to pick them up in Boxborough in a day or so.  I read this to mean that they cannot be installed standing on end, with the terminal end up. Is that so?  That'd be a problem requiring different batteries. Best to know that before I learn the hard way. Thanks.
