Small footprint, high performance
Compared to lead-acid batteries with the same capacity, the Pylontech RT12100 offers twice the usable capacity and more than three times the life cycle, with only 40% of the weight. (Dimensions: L 12.8 in x W 6.8 in x H 8.9 in, Weight: 28 lb).
Rugged IP67 enclosure offers protection against dust, water, and liquids, up to and including immersion in up to one meter of water.
Below zero temps will damage lithium batteries. Switched on manually, via the app, or with a relay, this battery's built-in heater is a significant value-add for vehicles and portable power storage units operating in environments as cold as -4°F and or left in storage at as low as -40°F.
Unlike many competitors who merely assemble batteries from components made by different manufacturers, Pylontech manufactures its battery cells and the battery management system (BMS). Pylontech's internal BMS carefully monitors and wisely manages the charging/discharging process to ensure cell balancing and prevent damage due to overcharge, over-discharge, overcurrent, temperature, or short circuit.

The combination of Pylontech lithium batteries and Victron inverters has been tested and certified by both Victron and Pylontech R&D departments. The RT12100G31 communicates with the Cerbo GX via the BMS type A cable. When connected, the battery is recognized as a Victron-compatible device and populates on the device list, just like your Victron solar charge controller or inverter.
For those already using Victron Energy inverters/chargers, solar charge controllers, and other equipment, the seamless integration and communication with Pylontech batteries offer a great user experience.
