Each Titan battery has a 3000-watt inverter, multiple AC ports, USB ports, and DC ports, and a 2000Wh capacity. These features are impressive considering comparable solar generators have different load power draw, charging power, and ability to compound with other batteries.
All of this makes Titan solar generators perfect for backing up home appliances when you need them. Here's what you need to know about using your Titan generator for home backup!
How Long Can Titan Solar Generators Last?
If you are merely trying to keep your cell phone charged and some LED lights running, your battery will last a long time. However, powering large appliances like a refrigerator or a small air conditioner is a different story. This may only last for 6 to 12 hours, depending on the wattage.
Still, you can run mid-sized electronics like LED TVs, WiFi routers, and laptops for several hours a day for multiple days. If you have water pumps or medical equipment at home, the output capabilities should be more than enough, but you may want another battery for a higher capacity.
You can compound other Titan batteries to double your battery capacity. It won't change the output from the pure sine wave inverter, but it will extend the life of your charge. You can add up to 5 batteries, which is why the Titan is so popular for home backup. Take them off for greater portability or keep them on for a lot of power.
Optimizing Your Solar Input
With the right amount of solar panels, you can continue generating electrical energy during power outages, even on cloudy days. Sure, it will be slower, but it will help extend your battery's life greatly!
However, it's important to optimize your solar panel setup, especially in low-light conditions. Make sure that your panels are facing true south with a slight tilt to the west for the best results. If you can, turn them to face the sun head-on throughout the day. Also, try to keep your solar panel wires safe from any falling objects or puddles!
If your panels are obstructed by snow, try to keep them clear for the best results. Even with clouds or rain, you can still draw up to 50% of your panels' intended wattage, depending on the quality of your solar panels. Still, anything is better than nothing when it's your only power source, and solar energy is much safer than using a gas generator.
Keep Your Battery Charged
Our grids can only handle so much power. When people are switching to more electrical appliances and vehicles, it places a greater strain on the grid. For this reason, we should all expect more power outages in the coming years, so keep your Titan and additional batteries charged.
Generally, we recommend using low amps to charge it, especially with solar panels. Not only is it free, but it's better on the battery's life span than using high amps every time. Don't worry about fast charging occasionally, but try to keep it low when possible!
Keep Your Titan Solar Generator Handy
For reliable solar backup power, the Titan is one of the best solar generators on the market. It has the capacity of similar systems, but you can always expand it with more batteries, which can hold a charge in storage for a long time.
