KiloVault CHLX Series

KiloVault® CHLX Series™ Cold-Rated Lithium Batteries

CHLX Series lithium batteries include all the advantages of the HLX Series with the added benefit of cold weather operation. Internal heating technology allows the battery to continue charging, even when the ambient temperature is well below zero.

When the ambient temperature is below 32ºF / 0°C, the charging current will flow to heating film to warm up the battery first, and switch to normal charging when the battery internal temperature raises up to 32ºF / 0°C.

Features

  • Takes charge even when it’s freezing
  • Flexible – Works in 12, 24 or 48V configurations
  • Gives You More – You can use the full battery’s capacity, discharging it 100%
  • Long life – Even after discharging it completely 2000 times, 80% of the capacity remains
  • Maintenance-Free – No watering required, or cleaning of hazardous chemicals
  • High Efficiency – Giving you up to 12% more usable stored energy
  • Smart Investment – Lower cost per Watt-hour/cycle and longer lifespan than lead batteries
  • Safer – No thermal runaway issues as with other lithium technologies
  • Heavy Duty – Takes up to 150A of continuous charging/discharging current, meeting the tough demands of serious inverters and chargers
  • 7.5 Year Warranty

The CHLX series has been discontinued and replaced by the HLX+ series.

KiloVault CHLX Series Product Details

Description

Take Charge Even When Its Freezing
When the ambient temperature is below 32°F / 0°C, the charging current will flow to heating film to warm up the battery first, and switch to normal charging when the battery internal temperature raises up to 32°F / 0°C.

 

The Safer Lithium Battery Technology
KiloVault’s LFP technology isn’t subject to the thermal run-away issues as with other lithium technologies. No active cooling needed.

Batteries with Depth
Hammer the battery with 100% discharge every day, like you mean it and even after 2000 cycles 80%+ of the battery’s energy capacity will be there for you. Discharge it less and the story gets even better.

Batteries that Don’t Need Babysitting
No regular watering required or wanted. No cleaning off of acid along the terminals. No dangerous off-gassing. No equalizing. No desulphating. Just wire them up and go about enjoying your life.

Higher Efficiency, Less Waste
You will get 8 to 14% more useable stored energy compared to lead acid batteries, thanks to higher efficiencies in the CHLX series.

Smart Investment
Your cost per watt-hour stored per cycle over the CHLX series’ lifetime will be less than lead acid batteries, reducing the headache of buying and changing out batteries every few years.

Integrated Bluetooth for Monitoring
Built-in Bluetooth and the convenient KiloVault HLX app make monitoring battery health and performance easy.
