Does anyone know if there is anything else comparable to this? Thanks

I'm always on the lookout for a UK equivalent but AFAIK only the Goal Zero kit comes "close" but isn't really close at all.

I'd definitely buy a 220v version (& some solar panels to charge it).

Am I missing something , isn't this just a 12v leisure battery, a charger and an inverter in a smart box ?

£1500 seems a bit steep when all the bits would cost less than a third of that.

Er, this is is a Lithium battery not Lead Acid! 11kg rather than 25kg+, all 90aH available for use rather than 55-ish of the 110 LA, 2000 charge cycles rather than the 500 or so of LA.

It's a different beast altogether.

Saw the lithium bit but for home use weight isn't a massive issue.

If you want lithium you can buy from the £700 mark
