What is a solar generator?

USB Type-C to XT60 Charging Adapter Cable

The term solar generator generally refers to the combination of a portable solar panel, battery, battery charger, and inverter into one device that allows you to capture, store, and distribute electricity from the sun.



Solar generators are widely used for camping trips, boating, RV trips, and as emergency backup power.



Unlike traditional generators, which are usually powered by natural gas, diesel, or propane and include an engine, fuel tank, and alternator, solar generators don't have any moving parts. They essentially consist of four elements:



Portable Solar Panels - Harvesting Energy from the Sun


Rechargeable battery - stores energy captured by solar panels


Solar Charge Controller - manages the energy going into the battery


Solar Inverter - converts solar energy into usable electricity



So a solar generator is basically a portable battery with some photovoltaic (PV) panels attached to it to harvest sunlight.



Whether you're on the road, camping, or need power during a power outage, a portable solar generator is a great power source. Depending on your situation, you may need a solar generator with multiple outlets, especially in emergency situations where you have multiple appliances and appliances that depend on electricity.



Typically, a solar generator comes with a 12-volt outlet, an AC outlet, and a USB port that allows you to charge different devices. The great thing about portable generators having a variety of charging options is that you can get the power you need on your own terms. For example, you can plug your smartphone directly into a USB port to charge it, then connect the extension cord to an AC outlet to power a set of string lights.



We here at Premier Cable are working tirelessly to bring you the very best Solar generator cables and services possible.
