But, eight of these can be tethered together for a total of 20kWh, twice of the electricity that a single Powerwall from Tesla can hold. Merdeces-Benz is taking a much more modular approach to its battery thanks to the ability of hooking multiple of them together. 20kWh should be enough for most modest sized houses, with the company hoping to ship its home battery in September.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
