Tesla Powerwall and Freedom Won home battery comparison

It Takes a lot more than just an inverter and battery to get a back up / solar solution going. ... and needs plenty of wall space. Not really a great comparison of two lots of premium equipment.
Cheers on the Leffe
 
That's an epic battery. I have the 10/8 (only two of us at home these days most of the time). The only caveat is that you get redundancy with more than one - if one needs to RMA, you still have backup. That's why getting multiple eTowers was my first choice, but there was no stock at the time. That said, the lites are so much easier on the eyes than the eTowers.
These are solid batteries. I'd hate to know what your 20/16 weighs. I mounted mine on the wall (2x M10 rawl bolts) to free up the floor space in my garage. Does the 20/16 come with mounting holes? How many? To be completely honest, my bigger worry with wall mounting are the machine screws that hold the back plate to the battery... rawl bolts will be fine, but the fact that the whole thing is attached to that back plate by a bunch of (fairly short) machine screws... hmm... maybe I'm being silly.
Has legs so it sits on the floor - it was heavy - 173kg according to here:


I was tempted to go for 2x 10s but it worked out more - 20/16 was well priced at 105k when I bought it.

Really wanted to try push for the 30, but it was 45k more and just out of budget!

105k is a bargain. I paid equivalent for mine - 52k - when I got it. They are now like 65k+ only a few months later.
Mine has legs too but can be wall mounted.
 
Great. Another device that needs charging from the already exhausted grid.

Dot worry ... Coal to the rescue for the next half a century
 
Tesla Powerwall 2 vs Freedom Won Lite Home — Ultimate load-shedding battery battle

With no end in sight for load-shedding in South Africa, many people are looking for backup power to carry them through the outages.

Small backup systems like power trolleys and UPSes might be able to run a limited set of devices, such as a TV, laptop, some lights, and a router.
I don't really inderstand the point to this article as you are comparing apples and pears in a very ignorant way. Various UPS systems by Eaton and APC share simelar performance and even better specs than the Powerwall and at considerally better pricing. in fact completely standalone offgrid Solar solutions are even cheaper than that with the obvious cost benefits. Just saying...

Yep supplier said the orders after mine jumped from 105 --> 130k - but because I'd already ordered they would honour my price.

Please link to these Eaton and APC UPS'

Offgrid cheaper than the Powerwall.

HA HA HA HAA HA HA HA HA HA.

Maybe if you run nothing but highly efficient lights and plan to braai every night and take cold showers.

Also Eaton and APC don’t compete in this market at all, never mind better price and specs.

You are too funny.
