Iron Edison RE-Volt Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery

Iron Edison RE-VOLT

I have been very happy to have Iron Edison Battery Company as one of our sponsors. They have been with us for some time. I know that a number of our readers have purchased their products.

I am personally into alternative energy – namely solar off-grid power. It has been a sort of hobby which I have put to practical use. I have built several systems over the years. I have also watched the progress of technology advancements within the realm of alternative energy. Battery technology, Solar Panel technology, and Charger / Inverter technology. Prices have come down too – as volume and cost of production has improved.

Iron Edison offers several varying battery technology solutions.

One of which is Lithium Iron Phosphate. I have written about their battery technologies a number of times here on the blog. Here are a few:

RE-VOLT Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery Storage

They now have a brand new lithium iron phosphate battery system. It’s in a new form-factor too! It mounts on the wall:

Iron Edison Press Release on RE-Volt Lithium Battery

Iron Edison is proud to introduce its 5th generation Lithium Iron Phosphate battery, the RE-Volt. The RE-Volt Lithium Battery is lightweight, hangs on the wall, and can be used as a direct replacement for lead acid batteries. 

Customer feedback has always been the catalyst that drives the progress and refinement of our products. The addition of the RE-Volt is truly the culmination of your collective insight. Designed with simplified installation and compatibility in mind, these batteries are plug-and-play and have already proven to be a staple for a host of off-grid, grid-tied, and battery back-up systems.

About Iron Edison Battery Company

Based in Denver, Colorado, Iron Edison Battery Company has offered battery solutions for solar energy systems for over a decade. The Iron Edison team has designed thousands of off-grid and battery backup systems ranging from large-scale commercial systems in the United States to rural solar energy systems in small mountain villages in Nepal. Both our Nickel Iron and Lithium batteries have proven to be longer-lasting, more durable alternatives to lead acid batteries. As our most efficient battery, with low cost of ownership, the RE-Volt is slated to continue and enhance that tradition by offering our customers yet another option for reliable energy independence. 

If any of you (or those who happen across this post during internet search) – are looking into alternative energy battery storage solutions, Iron Edison offers free consultation. They’re a trusted family-operated business here in the U.S., and I recommend that you at least contact them during the discovery stage of your project.

  1. The picture you drool over must have been taken at the owners house. 😄 But you gotta love the $18 folding chair. That makes the picture even more priceless.

    I’ve heard so many good things about these folks. Glad they are part of MSB and will be doing business with them when the time is right as a result of your trust in them.

    1. M’Lynn – I , on the other hand, am impressed with the workmanship of that concrete floor that chair sits on. Nice smooth finish…… straight clean control joint. Oh my….. brings back memories. Think I might also contact these folks. I want to set up a “work van” with solar. A moving target is sometimes harder to hit.

      1. SS,
        A friend of mine built a solar panel, battery system into a used Sprinter cargo van. He has a large bed, water tank, sink, exterior shower, microwave, led lights and the batteries charge with solar panels mounted on top and when he is driving. He can tow a enclosed trailer with his preps. Very nice set up.

        1. RC – Yep…. that is what I am after. Am hoping to find a Mercedes van 4X4. Tend more toward the simple side though. Probably nix the microwave and sink. Hopefully mine will look more like a work van from exterior. But I do want those batteries charged while driving or by solar. Backroads Vanner – YouTube has a really cool awning setup utilizing top ladder racks. Got family in NY (Kingston), Ga (Atlanta area), Tx (Dallas – Magnolia), and MT (Belgrade). Probably going mobile soon. Have to find someone to disconnect those pesky tracking devices in it.

  2. I have LiFePo4 batteries for our off grid system and like them a lot. Do you know if the Iron Edison batteries have replaceable cells after they wear out? The BMS is a significant part of the battery system so it would be good if you could replace cells within a unit.

    I saved about $9000 by assembling individual cells and buying a separate BMS, contactor, relays, etc. It is more of a DIY rather than off the shelf and was a lot of work and some risk doing it this way. I think off the shelf is a better way to go for most people.

  3. Thank you for this information, Ken. We are right in the middle of evaluating our power plan for a remote home. We will definitely check in with the folks at Iron Edison.
