Solax inverters have been gaining popularity lately. Mostly due to the fact that everyone is fast becoming obsessed with solar battery systems such as Tesla’s Powerwall. Solax have hit the market exactly where it’s sitting. And they have a good product. This Solax inverter review will take a look at what products the company have to offer and whether they live up to expectations.
Solax Inverter Review – Company Background
Solax Power is also known as Zhejiang Ailuo Power Co.,Ltd. They are a Chinese power electronics company specialising in grid-tied, hybrid and off-grid inverters. It’s unclear when the company started but it seems they are quite new to the scene. Their domain (solaxpower.com) has been registered since August 16, 2013.
So overall Solax seems like a pretty fresh company, but their products reflect a modern edge that most Chinese inverter companies can’t achieve.
Solax Inverter Review – The Good
Solax inverters are everything you want in an inverter. Well-priced, good looking, efficient, reliable, their range is fantastic and they’ve thought about monitoring. They virtually have it all. The Solax website is clear and well-built. They have internal monitoring via WiFi and even load control functionality! They even have an export control function which is becoming something of importance these days. Here are some benefits of the Solax inverter:
- Built in monitoring
- Flexible product range (including hybrid/battery solutions)
- Australian hotline 1300 476529
- Clean look, well designed product
- Simple warranty/after-sales service
The Not So Good
So what’s not to love about the Solax? Well firstly they seem like quite a new company – it doesn’t look as though the Solax is a proven product yet and is still to build it’s reputation of reliability. The company photos are 3d generated and not a lot of company background is provided on their site. The product range, although adequate is not as clear-cut as it could be and the products themselves are somewhat hard to differentiate.
The other big bad thing I noticed… There is no physical address listed anywhere on their website. Making them something of a “phantom”. This is never a great sign in the longer-term if you want your warranties to stay intact.
Overall Solax inverters seem like a good product built by a determined company. The Solax branding is fantastic, their website is miles ahead of most Chinese inverter websites and the products that they offer hit the market very well. I’d be very tempted to try out a Solax inverter to see just how well they perform and what their monitoring/storage capabilities involve.
