Mercedes-Benz Home Battery

It started with Tesla’s Powerwall, and now Mercedes-Benz is also getting ready to sell you a home battery. Daimler’s unit packs 2.5 kWh of energy versus Tesla’s 7, hopefully making up for it with a lower price point (so far unannounced). The battery can buffer energy use in solar powered homes or to circumvent the grid’s higher prices during peak hours, daisy chains in combinations of up to 8 units for higher-demand settings, and also comes in more flexible commercial versions with much higher capacities.
