Whether you have a detached garage, RV, or an off-grid cabin, you want to make your space as comfortable as possible. At certain times of the year, air conditioning is a necessity!
Fortunately, with the right portable generator, you can power a small air conditioner wherever you go. Here's what you need to know about Nature's Generator and air conditioners!
AC Power Consumption
Air conditioners come in all shapes and sizes. One Nature's Generator cannot power your home's central air unit, but it can power a smaller window AC or a portable air conditioner.
On the smallest end, a portable AC used for RVs or campers may only need 400W to run on a medium setting. Conversely, a medium-sized window unit may need 1500W to run. Either way, Nature's Generator can power this, but not for too long.
Nature's Generator Capacity
Nature's Generator offers up to 1800W of AC output wattage at one time among plenty of output options (USB ports, AC wall outlets, etc.). This should be more than enough to power a window AC unit. However, the internal battery can only store 720Wh, so this won't last for too long on one battery.
Fortunately, you can combine these generator power pods for expansion purposes, which will help your battery last longer. You can even fit up to 3 on the custom heavy duty cart, allowing for easier transportation.
Alternatively, you can upgrade to the Nature's Generator Elite, which has a 1200Wh capacity and can also combine with any other Nature's Generator power pod using a power transfer kit.
Either way, you can always check the LCD display screen on the front of the unit for output information, charging status, and more as you run your system.
Nature's Generator uses a 100 ah sealed lead acid battery, which does not charge as fast as some other battery chemistries. For this reason, you will need to keep your solar panels in direct sunlight throughout the day to bring it to a full charge.
Luckily, this is when you need your air conditioner the most! If you keep your system plugged in, this should generate enough electrical energy to keep your system running throughout the day. However, if it's cloudy or if you don't have enough solar panel input, you could potentially run out.
At night. you can use your Nature's Generator wind turbine to generate more power, but it may not be enough to sustain an AC. On average, you can generate around 27W of wind power at a time.

With enough solar input or backup batteries, you can power an energy-efficient, portable air conditioner throughout the day without interruptions. However, you may need more storage or input for a larger air conditioner. Either way, a portable power station is less harmful than standard gas generators, cheaper to run, and comes with no toxic fumes!
