Though the 10kWh, D.O.X-10M battery is of similar capacity to other smaller residential batteries, designed specifically for targeted resiliency needs. Where other systems are fixed into one location, require extensive permitting, and are not designed with power outages in mind, the D.O.X-10M is mobile, does not require permitting, and can be deployed to serve specific essential equipment.
The D.O.X-10M can store 10kWh of energy. The duration of energy supply during an outage will vary depending on what is plugged into it. For reference, an average refrigerator draws around 1.5kWh per day. If one fridge was prioritized, the D.O.X-10M would suffice for more than three days without power.
The D.O.X-10M is built with a MPPT solar charge controller which, if connected directly. Which allows the device to be ideal for small, low voltage, off the grid PV attachments. Rooftop solar can indirectly charge the battery for some applications, in normal operating circumstances.
Unlike traditional low voltage residential installations, the D.O.X-M10 does not require permitting for most applications. The customer need only plug the unit into the wall, and plug desired devices into the front!
With proper controls installed, or with simple programmable outlet timers, devices plugged into the D.O.X-10M can avoid impacting utility charges during specific predetermined times.
This mobile battery solution is ideal for customers on older utility rates or for those who own medical devices. The D.O.X-10M does not impact the rate classification, is substantially cheaper than traditional low voltage battery systems, and can target only the equipment considered essential.
The Californian Public Utility Commission (CPUC) is currently reviewing qualifications for batteries that may receive moneys from the "SGIP Equity Resiliency Budget." This budget was created directly in response to 2019 Public Safety Power Outage concerns. The advocacy of solutions such as D.O.X-10M to the CPUC and other local Governmental and utility organizations further promotes this technology.
Power reliability is often seen as a daily life challenge in areas outside of the USA, creating a strong need for mobile battery solutions such as D.O.X-10M. A resort in Mexico with intermittent power, with one D.O.X-10M in each room, for example, proves to be an ideal match for this technology.
In the front of the unit, there are four AC outlets. These outlets are connected directly to our 2500 W pure sine wave inverter.
