Anyone have any exsperience with solar Generators? I'm currently putting the EBL 1000watt voyager and 100watt apollo solar panel through its paces. So far so good! I spend most of my time overlanding in my Jeep. I have been able to do alot more boondocking! I will report back soon!

Have a blessed day! Stay Outdoors!

A better solution may have been a large battery and an inverter, adding solar panels.

Generally these "solar generators" are quite pricey. They are convenient if not much power is needed.

Why did you start the same thread all over again? Your previous thread is two threads below this one.

A 100 watt solar panel will get you 5.5-5.7 amps under perfect conditions which can be had 4 to 5 hours a day maximum. Not many paces until your "generator" is dead.

I think the idea is to only comment if you actually have one to avoid all the other banter and unrelated advice.

Given that multiple postings of the same are prohibited, perhaps they will consolidate or at least lock one of them.
