In this official press release Nedap announced the support for Li-ion battery on the classic 24V powerrouter which is actually available for usage with AGM/GEL or flooded Lead-acid battery. The announcement stated:
Nedap is working with Li-ion battery manufacturer Saft. From 1 August the Saft Intensium@home
Li-ion battery can be connected to the PowerRouter Li-ion. The strength of the Nedap
PowerRouter is that the customer can choose which battery they want to connect. Nedap’s plan is
to embrace a multi-brand strategy, through which it will eventually be possible to connect a wide
range of battery brands to the PowerRouter. This applies to both the PowerRouter Li-ion and the
existing PowerRouter for standard batteries (24 volts). This is also the reason Nedap has
established a partnership with Li-ion manufacturers Akasol and LG Chem and is open to work with
other interested manufacturers.
I don’t understand if the 24V model can work with 48V Li-ion battery or if some battery manufacturer are working on a 24V Li-ion battery. Anyway the choice of guarantee support of new feature in old product is always an admirable choice!
