Notes

The batteries are the most expensive component of the energy system. They should remain above 70% capacity to extend their operating lifespan.

Here is Depth of Discharge (DOD) cycle count for our Lead Carbon SuperCapacitor (LCS) batteries:

1500 cycles at 100% Discharge capacity
2400 cycles at 80% Discharge capacity
3000 cycles at 60% Discharge capacity
3600 cycles at 50% Discharge capacity
