What Is A Solar Power Generator?

Asolar power generator is a pre-wired power solution with a battery bank, inverters, a battery charger, and solar panels. In simple words, it is a combination of two products: a power station and a solar panel that transforms sunlight captured by solar panels into electrical power, which is then stored in an internal storage system for future use.

Solar generators use Mini or Micro Li-Cube power stations and a solar panels to offer essential backup power for a variety of uses, including industrial and commercial ones like construction sites, job sites, security, and surveillance, as well as residential and non-commercial ones like RVs, Vans, boats, homes, cabins, etc.

How Does A Solar Generator works?

Showing making procedure is a good way to guarantee product quality

First, place the solar panels in direct sunlight to absorb solar energy. After it converts the energy to electricity, it first passes through a charge controller to regulate the voltage of the electricity before being stored in a lithium battery of our Mini Li-Cube power station.
Lastly, the inverter transforms the lithium battery's stored energy into electricity for later usage to charge electronic devices or run appliances.

A large battery, an AC inverter, and a solar charge controller make up our Mini and Micro portable power stations. Each Li-Cube comes equipped with a variety of port options, including AC outlets (wall outlets) and DC ports (vehicle alternator), which allow you to power all your 12V, 24V, and 120V devices. While power banks have smaller capacities, portable power stations typically offer larger capacities as well as a variety of outlets.

How To Charge Li-Cube Power Station?

Your Mini/Micro Li-Cube can be charged in various ways using the proper adaptor (s). Here are three different ways to do so:

1- Sun: Recharge from the sun by connecting a compatible solar panel. Charging times are dependent on the chosen solar and battery options.

2- Quick connect to AC input: Easily connect to a 120V AC source via quick connect ports. Charging times vary according to the capacity of the source and the battery option (from 2 to 6 hours)

3- Quick connect to vehicle battery: Easily connect to a vehicle battery via a 12V car charger to recharge while you drive. Charging times depend on the battery option (3 to 8 hours)

Which Is Better Solar Power Or Traditional Generator?

Li-Cube Solar Generator

1- Cost-effective
Eliminate searching for diesel fuel and maintenance costs over time

2- Clean Energy
Produce electricity using solar panels as a sustainable, clean, and free form of energy.

3- Easy to Use
Simply works with the push of a button. Just turn it on and connect your devices

No noise while in use. 

Traditional Generator

1-Ongoing cost
Rely on costly fossil fuels. High maintenance since needs to be cleaned, oiled, and replaced components over time.

2- Pollution
Causes air pollution and climate change due to the use of fossil fuels. Mostly release carbon dioxide and other harmful gasses into the atmosphere, including carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides, and sulfur oxides.

3-Difficult to setup
Not easy to run diesel generator or gas generator due to use of fossil fuels and significant start-up failure rate due to various unknown causes

4- Noisy
Makes a lot of noise while it runs because of all the moving parts that make them up.

How To Select A Solar Powered Generator In The Market?

The type of solar generator you require varies depending on your needs. A smaller solar generator, such as the Micro Li-Cube with 2688Wh battery capacity up to 5.4 kWh, will be perfect for charging everything from cellphones to laptops and tablets or mini-fridges and electric girls.
During a power outage, your cabin, workshop, or important appliances in your home can be equipped with one of our larger solar generators, such as the Mini Li-cube with up to 7000Wh battery reserve. It can run refrigerators, coffee makers, hair dryers, medical devices, and work power tools effectively.

Whether you're experiencing a power outage in your home or cabin or you want to go camping off-grid for a long trip, our range of solar generators helps you to have power in all your moments.
With one of our solar generators, you can run your mini fridge, cook hot dishes on an electric stove, charge your phone and keep your laptop running to work remotely in your van with ease.
When there is a power outage at home or cabin, our solar generators can keep the lights and WiFi on to keep you comfortable.

What Is The Best Battery For A Solar Generator?

Lithium Battery Vs. Lead Acid

Lead acid is a popular cost-effective battery and cheaper than Lithium Battery but due to the below reasons we used Lithium-ion battery (LiFePO4/LFP battery) in our Mini/Micro Li-Cube:

1- Charging

Our lithium-ion battery can be charged in 1 hour up to 8 hours, depending on the size of the battery, to a lead-acid battery, which can take more than 10 hours.

2- Long cycle life

Compared to their lead-acid competitors, lithium batteries have a considerably longer lifespan, >200 cycles vs >2000 cycles

3- Cost

Lithium batteries last much longer and have higher performance when compared to their lead-acid competitors.  The cost of lithium-ion batteries is the only drawback. In the long run, nevertheless, the expense is justified because they will eventually pay for themselves.

Final Thoughts

With improvements in solar technology, solar generators are becoming more and more desired by those who choose green energy over traditional generators.
In order to battle global warming and live sustainably, solar generators are a better choice since they are fume-free, low maintenance, and quiet.Owning a solar generator has a lot of advantages that make the cost worthwhile.
