Solar Generator

July 13, 2015
from Utah
I had been looking at this generator for a couple of years waiting for someone to write a review and also to see if NT would have a sale. Well, forget about it going on sale and looks like I will be the first to give this product a review.
I gave it a good workout over the 4th. Ran a portable swamp cooler (150w) for 4 hrs with only a 20% drop in battery charge. I had the panels charging at the same time, altho the input did not exceed the output.
To charge it back up I used the panels and a 1000w Honda generator and within a couple of hours it was charged up.
It did not have the power to start a chop saw or an induction cook plate. I talked with my electronics/electrician brother and he said that for a microsecond those items demand too much load and the generator could not handle that. So abit disappointed with that-but I have a backup with the gas generator for those items. He recommended more batteries to accomplish that task.
I will probably purchase a larger solar panel for quicker charging. The manual says it can handle up to a 250w panel.
For lighter loads this works fantastic...and it is quiet.
The digital read out panel is very comprehensive with reading input, output and battery capacity.
Overall, yes I would recommend this product. I find with all generators, knowing the wattage of your equipment is critical.
