Yes. They are a Korean company, part of LG group, who are one of the largest companies in the world. Here at Solar Run we understand that a Solar Battery is still an expensive addition to your Solar System. With this in mind, this LG Chem battery review recommends LG when both price, performance, and a known brand are the most important considerations.
LG Chem batteries have been widely installed in Australia being well suited to Australian conditions. Almost all LG Chem Reviews agree that these are
one of the best battery options in Australia. LG Chem Australia is based in Melbourne, VIC. This battery is widely compatible with major solar inverters
and can be set up to be VPP ready. If you are looking for a high performing battery then you will be looking at an LG Chem battery.
LG Chem, Ltd. is Korea’s largest diversified chemical company. One of their main business units is Energy Solutions which extends its chemical expertise into high-tech areas such as rechargeable batteries.

When you want the best battery for Australian conditions.
All of their batteries are clean energy council approved. Widely sold in Australia LG Chem provides market leading batteries. Here in Australia we get very cold temperatures in Winter and very hot temperatures in Summer. Even so it is usually recommended that solar batteries are keep away from direct sun. LG Chem batteries have a wide range of operating temperatures.
When you want a battery that is compatible with your inverter.
Some batteries are only compatible with a very limited range of inverters while others are compatible with many different inverters. LG Chem batteries are compatible with many different inverters including SMA, GoodWe, and Growatt.
When you need an affordable battery.
Solar Batteries, or ESS (Energy Storage Systems) as the are known, are something that every solar system owner should consider. However, for many the higher prices will be a barrier as even the most affordable Solar batteries cost as much as the rest of the solar system combined. LG Chem prices are more affordable than some other leading Solar Battery Providers.
When you want a VPP (Virtual Power Plant) ready battery.
LG Chem batteries are a great choice if you are considering signing up to a VPP (Virtual Power Plant). A VPP, for those not familiar with the term, allows many solar systems to act together as a power plant. Collectively a VPP can then store power when it is cheap and sell it when the price is higher more effectively than a single solar system owner. VPPs are not yet common but being “VPP ready” is a must to claim the South Australian Battery Rebate.
If you want to be VPP ready consider adding a VPP module.
When the size and expandability of the battery is important.
ESS/Solar batteries come in different sizes and shapes. They also come in different setups; some batteries have variable capacity while others have a fixed capacity. LG Chem batteries are a relatively small package. They come in fixed sizes but they can be combined together to create a bigger battery.
