Bare with me I want to explain my background in business for a few paragraphs before we get on to buying the last set of Batteries you will most likely ever buy.
I have worked in Pre Insolvency for over tens years now and have I seen some interesting things! If you don’t know what pre insolvency is, let me explain it like this, I normally get a call from a business when its about to implode on itself, If business owners called me the 1st time they had the thought of things are not going to good, They would get better results and have less grey hairs. Most of the time they call me there is legal action, everything is very time sensitive and it’s just not a good energy about the whole situation as its peoples livelihoods on the line, and they expect that I can perform miracles and stop the titanic from sinking. And what I do is make sure they have a life raft to keep them afloat until they build their next titanic.
Having this background I can see the reasons that so many businesses fail and the reasons that our financial system is just a bunch of numbers on a screen that get changed all the time.
One of the key lessons I have learnt in my time from this that I would to share with you is business want to embed a product in your life that you can’t live without and make it necessary that you stay apart of their business for ever. This is not the intention of every business and majority of them they all want a long term customers and build a relationship that last forever so that you continue to support the cash flow of that business. When a business wants a long term relationship, it really means long time cash flow or taking your money.
Now lets get to my point with Battery cells.
I have desired for along time to live a self reliant life and have a home energy system that would power my home from solar. I have installed and played around a lot with 12 volt solar systems for cars and I saw customers, friends and myself replacing very expensive good quality lead acid batteries all the time. This was something I didn’t want to do on my home energy system as a set of batteries for the home could be $6-10,000 a go and think of all that waste every time you do it.
I just knew there was something else out there that was better and when I found it, I also found the reasons that it’s that the technology has been hidden and companies don’t like to talk about it.
I am talking about the Edison cell, Nickel Iron Battery, Nife Cells which ever of the latter you would like to call them. Do you own research on them. Just like everything else on the internet you will find good and bad stuff about them, search and you shall find.
There is 1 bad thing really about them when you compare them to lead acid and lithium in my opinion. They take more to charge them. you can charge the other two types of batteries faster.
So the solution is a few more solar panels or a better charge controller. Its a very simple problem to get around. I started a facebook page called 24hoursolarpower to do research on these cells, go on there for yourself and ask the question of how many years people have had there Nife Cells for, Some have had them for over 50 years!
I went to the Australian Energy and storage conference and I spent the whole day talking with business owners and battery salesman all day. And the one question after getting through the banter of mines bigger or better than yours banter I asked this question. Business man to business man what is the true reason you don’t push the NiFe Cell technology and every single one of 12 people I spoke with the answer was almost identical, We can’t keep selling them to you.
Is it sad they products are made these days that you require to replace them. I remember my parents and grandparents always saying they just don’t make things to last anymore. Its not because they can’t as they want that returning customer for ever!
Nife cells have so many benefits, what if you charge controller dies and you can’t get a new one? Well you just run your panels straight into the cells as they do not get affected by over charging unlike all other battery cells. You can also discharge these cells very very low with no impact to the cells, unlike a lead acid cell, you go below the recommended Depth of discharge a few times and the cells are no good.
The largest problem you will have with NiFe cells is who to leave them to when your not around any more? They truly could be an asset you pass on to the next generation.
