This will most definitely be the solution for isolated dwellings/research stations on Mars I think.

Re: Musk's Powerwall

Is this really an improvement over other battery systems?

Re: Musk's Powerwall

Hi Josh:

Depends upon what you mean by improvement.  It's just lithium-ion battery technology made safe to handle in the home.

Re: Musk's Powerwall

Its been a while even though we have talked about the potential uses of having such an item.
Seems that there is some competition Tesla Powerwall 2 Review

The Powerwall 2 costs $5,500 with more than double the storage at 14 kWh, compared to the original’s 6.4 kWh capacity. Seems that the #1 LG Chem RESU6.5 are quite cost competitive and reasonably within the same capability.
