Auswell Energy shares our maintenance tips to get the most out of your solar battery life.
Purchasing a solar battery is an exciting step towards maximising your electricity and reducing your monthly power costs. Just like solar panels, solar battery life is highly dependent on several external factors such as storage temperature. To help improve your battery performance and life, we’ve listed some maintenance tips you need to know. Here are some simple things you can do:
1. Know your battery type
It is very important to be aware of the solar battery you’re using, as they require different levels of maintenance. Most batteries will come with a logbook that details the critical system metrics that you need to be aware of. You should keep this and take advantage of any warranties given.
2. Keep your battery charged
Installing a solar battery in Brisbane or the Gold Coast is useful when combating power outages during unpredictable weather, especially during storm season. Excessive energy use that frequently leaves your solar battery at low levels can cause long-term, irreparable damage. To keep your battery healthy, you should ensure that you’re generating enough energy to keep it charged.

3. Store your battery correctly
How you store your solar battery will depend on the type of battery you are using. As a rule of thumb, batteries should be:
- Stored in a well-ventilated space away from living areas
- Stored in a clean, dry area with minimal debris
- Stored in an area that’s not exposed to direct sunlight
- Stored in a temperature-controlled environment (between 20°C and 25°C)
When installing or storing these batteries it’s important to make sure your system meets all relevant Australian regulations and standards. For a summary of relevant information, click here.
4. Regularly clean your battery
Keeping battery systems clean is perhaps the best thing you can do to prolong your solar energy system’s life. Use a simple cloth and a small amount of soap to wipe down the exterior and avoid the use of hard solvents. Cleaning your battery tops about twice a year will help reduce corrosion and accumulated dust.
