How to use solar panel charging Energizer portable power stations?
What kinds of solar panel is suitable for charging Energizer PPS?
Commercially available solar panel connectors are available in both male and female types that snap together. There are several types of connectors, the main ones are MC3, MC4, PV, and Solarlok (Tyco). Again, they come in many shapes such as T-connectors, U-connectors, X-connectors, or Y-connectors. In general, the most common type of solar connector is the MC4 connector.
So, which one is the best for charging Energizer PPS?
Indeed, the MC4 connector is the most common and also the best choice for solar panels. It has 2 output jacks, one positive and negative for one, so it can be used in series with multiple solar panels. The maximum power Energizer PPS2000 can accept 900W maximum power form the serial or parallel solar panels. For example, if charging with multiple 110W solar panels, it can achieve up to 8 panels in series or parallel.
Find the solar aviation input plug for Energizer PPS2000?
There are two types of aviation plugs on the Energizer PPS2000, one is an aviation input plug on the side of the PPS2000 and another is an aviation output socket near the power button. When you need to store energy by charging the Energizer PPS2000 with solar panels, you need to plug in the aviation input plug. The aviation output plug is not capable of storing the energy from the solar panel and can only be used to charge your devices.
The detailed usage solar panel to charge
The Energizer PPS2000 comes with a special wiring cable for connecting to the solar panel for conversion, which you can find inside its package. If you just want to charge the PPS2000 power station, you only need to connect the XT90 to the aviation input plug cable with the XT90 to MC4 solar charging cable. By using these two cables, you can easily connect to the MC4 output cable of the solar panel and power your energy storage. The last thing you need to do is to choose a bright sunny day and be patient. Have a cup of coffee, and you'll have green, clean energy without any fuel pollution.
