My brother was in the area yesterday and called in to look at one after closing time; somone came out and offered him a test drive, even though he explained he couldn't afford to buy one. He plans to take up the offer though!

Tesla just announced pricing for there power wall $3000USD for 7kWh battery storage. They announced a 10kwh version for $3600 but along side is said (weekly cycling) only the 7kwh version had ( daily cycling).

Technology
Wall mounted, rechargeable lithium ion battery with liquid thermal control.
Models
10 kWh $3,500
For backup applications
7 kWh $3,000
For daily cycle applications
Warranty
Ten year warranty with an optional ten year extension.
Efficiency
92% round-trip DC efficiency
Power
2.0 kW continuous, 3.3 kW peak
Voltage
350 – 450 volts
Current
5 amp nominal, 8.5 amp peak output
Compatibility
Single phase and three phase utility grid compatible.
Operating Temperature
-4°F to 110°F / -20°C to 43°C
Enclosure
Rated for indoor and outdoor installation.
Installation
Requires installation by a trained electrician. AC-DC inverter not included.
Weight
220 lbs / 100 kg

Though my understanding is its just for load shifting.

That's $428 US - kwh I guess it includes some kind of a inverter and other things but not a ground breaking price drop for stationary storage. You would need 3 of them to run a average house totally.

No inverter is included with it. As I just posted in antoher Lithium thread, the 43C top operating temperature could be a problem.

That pricing isn't retail- it will be a whole lot more by the time it gets here, although once the Gigafactory is operating at full production, I'd hope the price would come down a fair bit.

Yes the Au price wont be a simple exchange rate conversion it will be more than the US list price like the cars.

Yes I was saying it has a inverter and other accessory in the package. Though given its only a 3kw inverter pr unit at exchange rate comparisons it works out at over 10k for three of them (20kwh) and I guess 9kwh of inverter potential? Would be nice to know what the inverter can do . I assume its just a grid tie style inverter?

Ten year warranty with an optional ten year extension
. that part sounds promising :)

You must be reading a different press release ;)

The Powerwall is available in 10kWh, if wanted for backup applications, or 7kWh if optimised for daily use applications. Tesla says it will sell these batteries to installers for $US3,500 for 10kWh and $US3,000 for the 7kWh.
This excludes the price of inverters and installation.

It will consist of a lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system and software that receives dispatch commands from a solar inverter. It can be mounted on the wall and is integrated with the local grid.

From the spec in the above link .. not exactly ELV, 24/48 volt friendly without reconfiguration
Voltage 350 – 450 volts
Current 5 amp nominal, 8.5 amp peak output
Network = Powercor .. Retailer = Origin .. Installed Christmas 2008
Latronics PV-1200 feed by 8xTrina TSM DC-01 .. 170watt = 1360watts DC in .. 1096watts AC out .. 5+years later 990watts ac out

Indeed- looks to be solely aimed at grid-connected - load-shifting and backup/UPS market.
