LuxPower Squirrel Pod

""
""

More advanced than standard, the LuxPower Squirrel Pod is a more powerful version of the LuxPower AC units.

Different to other versions, the Squirrel Pod has additional hardware that allows it to have two to eight additional controllers attached to them, multiplying their power. Requiring their own battery, it can be connected individually or through a combined connection to a main fuse box. 

The Squirrel Pod works in parallel, meaning that only the primary controller has CT clamps fitted, with other units all set to subordinate working mode. All Squirrel Pod units are listed on the ENA Register, with G100 certification.

LUXPOWER SQUIRREL POD IN-DEPTH

LuxPower Squirrel Pod Product Overview

Multiplying Capabilities

Squirrel Pod units can be linked together to increase storage capacity. In addition to this, the use of multiple units will also expand charge and discharge rates for more power.

Advanced EPS

The LuxPower LXP 3600 AC Controller has an impressive, enhanced EPS feature will switch over in 0.01s in the event of a power cut, meaning these systems can also be used with Grid Share incentive programmes. Please note the EPS is limited to 13A and is designed for Emergency Power Supply only, it is not designed to power your entire fuse board.

Up to 20 Years Warranty

All our LuxPower Controllers come with a comprehensive 12-year manufacturer’s warranty, ensuring that you can rely on the performance and longevity of our products with absolute confidence. At an extra charge, this can be upgraded to 20 years warranty, giving you peace of mind when it comes to your investment.

Grid Charge & Octopus Agile/Outgoing/Go Compatible

New energy providers will now provide extremely cheap off-peak renewable electricity. The LuxPower range can be programmed to take advantage of these cheap off-peak tariffs to charge the batteries to use the energy when the tariffs are high.

Testimonials

“We are a large user of power but our house was not suitable for solar panels due to the large amount of trees around us. Our installer told us about the Luxpower Squirrel Pod system which means we can charge up with cheap electricity (we are on an Octopus account), and this keeps us going through the day. We have now has a second Luxpower unit fitted and 4 more batteries so we can fill them up at double the speed, and it now covers the oven when that comes on.”

Sam Hardacre, Sussex

“Our new solar system was installed using a Luxpower inverter and 3 Greenlinx batteries. The installers set it all up in our loft space and the batteries are mounted underneath the Luxpower unit. It was really very simple, we were given a password to access the monitoring, and we can see everyday how the power is going into the batteries. At the moment we have plenty of extra power in the daytime – we had a 16 panels system installed – and this power is keeping us going every evening.”

Sally Harmison, Cardiff

“We are delighted with our Luxpower system. We have recommended this system to our friends with confidence. We are absolutely confident that we have an excellent battery storage solution that it is performing exactly as we hoped it would”
