Q: - How many solar panels do I need for a Solar Generator?
A: - The answer to this question is, you can pretty much get as many solar panels as you want. We suggest getting as many solar panels as your budget can handle. This is because more solar panels equals faster recharge time for your generator.
Some solar generators will have a minimum input voltage, which means in order to charge that unit, you might need a base number of panels.
- Ex: Bluetti AC200P has a minimum input voltage of 35V. So this means you will need at least (2) 100 watt solar panels in series to register a charge for this generator.
In general though, our rule of thumb is to try and max out your solar input for your solar generator. This allows you to take advantage of the sunny times and recharge your generator quickly during the day time.
