Good question -- let’s jump right in! We’ll start by looking at the Patriot 1800 statistics.
Patriot 1800 Battery Capacity:
The name Patriot 1800 is a bit misleading because it turns out that this 4Patriot generator does not have a battery capacity of 1800 watt-hours but instead, according to its user manual, has only 960 watt-hours. Of these 960 watt-hours only 90% is usable -- meaning it has 768 watt-hours of battery capacity if it is powering a DC device. Since the 4Partiot generator runs on DC power, a user can get that 768 watt-hour capacity if they are running a DC device. However, if it’s used to power a device plugged in to its 120V AC outlets, then the Patriot 1800 consumes some power to convert the DC power to AC power resulting in a reduction of the 768 watt-hour capacity to 691 watt-hours.
Patriot 1800 Solar Input Max
The Patriot 1800 has a maximum Solar Input of 240 watts.
Is the Patriot 1800 system expandable?
No, the Patriot 1800 system is not expandable. The Patriot 1800’s battery capacity running its 120V AC outlets is only 691 watt-hours. If you wanted to expand the Patriot 1800 battery capacity to keep your household electronics running longer -- you cannot do that.
Is the Patriot 1800 designed to be powered by free wind power as well as solar power?
No, the Patriot 1800 was not designed to run on the free renewable energy provided by the wind.
What is the cost of the Patriot 1800?
The Patriot 1800 costs $2497.00 and comes with one 100-watt solar panel.
Now let’s compare the above Patriot 1800 specifications to Nature’s Generator’s.
But first let’s answer the question: What is a Nature's Generator?
A Nature's Generator is a line of affordable solar-powered generators designed
to be used anywhere, anytime. Power is supplied by Power Panels (state-of-the-
art solar panels) and Wind Turbines working with the generator. Every Nature’s
Generator ensures a clean charge without sacrificing any power so it can run even your most sensitive electronic devices. With Nature’s Generators you can stay connected wherever life takes you.
Nature’s Generator’s affordable solar powered generator products include:
Nature's Generator 1800 Watt ($749 or with one 100-watt solar panel its cost is $999.)
Nature's Generator Elite 3600-watt ($999 or with two 100-wqtt solar panels cost is $1499.)
Nature's Generator Powerhouse 7200-watt ($2999)
Nature’s Generator gives you far more power for your money than the Patriot 1800.
For as close as we can get to an apple-to-apple comparison, the Nature’s Generator 1800-watt solar powered generator with one 100-watt solar panel would cost you $999. When we compare that to the Patriot 1800 for $2497.00 -- it would mean you could buy an 1800-Watt solar-powered Nature’s Generator plus an additional one and a half more Nature’s Generators for the same cost as the $2497.00 Patriot. So, for your hard-earned dollar, the Nature’s Generator 1800-watt solar powered generator would be your best buy.
Plus, Nature’s Generators solar input and wind input are both expandable.
Nature's Generator 1800-Watt maximum solar input 200-Watt (expandable)
Nature's Generator 1800-Watt maximum wind input 300-Watt (expandable)
Nature's Generator Elite 3600-Watt maximum solar input 200Watt (expandable)
Nature's Generator Elite 3600-Watt maximum wind input 300-Watt (expandable)
Nature's Generator Powerhouse 7200-Watt maximum solar input 2000-Watt (expandable)
Nature's Generator Powerhouse 7200-Watt maximum wind input 1000-Watt (expandable)
All the above listed solar-powered Nature’s Generators are expandable so starting with any one of these three products you can get the correct amount of power you need to power your household without having to purchase more than power than you need.
All the above listed solar-powered Nature’s Generators were designed to also (simultaneously) be recharged by free wind power as well as the free renewable energy from the sun. We should note that you are not required to also use a Nature’s Generator wind turbine, but it does give you another system recharging option when the sun (or the grid) goes down.
Because the Nature’s Generator Powerhouse, priced at $2999, is only about $500 more than the Patriot 1800 at $2497 -- you might want to consider this 7200-Watt solar-powered generator. It was designed with the idea of powering a whole home. If you read the below Powerhouse information, we think you will be thoroughly impressed. While it is bigger and heavier than the portable Nature’s Generator 1800-Watt or the portable Nature’s Generator Elite 3600-Watt solar-powered generator the Powerhouse is mounted on industrial style wheels for easy mobility -- making weight less of factor. So, without further ado let’s take a close look at the Powerhouse solar-powered generator’s statistics.
Nature’s Generator’s newest product is the Powerhouse, the first whole-house solar-powered generator in our product line!
Just launched in August of 2022, the Nature’s Generator Powerhouse is the next innovation for a whole-home eco-power solution. With a maximum power output 120V or 240V/7200Watt, it can power almost anything. Powerhouse will provide all your power needs ANYWHERE and ANYTIME!
Nature’s Generator’s new Powerhouse, features:

Whether it is a 120 Volts or 240 Volts the Powerhouse has you covered!
Nature's Generators' Powerhouse can single-handedly address all your home power requirements because of its split phase 240V/7200W or single phase 120V/7200W (combining Line 1 and Line 2) pure sine wave inverter!
240V 7200W Pure Sine Wave
Nature's Generator knows the extreme importance of 240V in every home. The Powerhouse can now bring the power to your 240V electrical devices like a water pump, air conditioner, electric heater, or electric clothes dryer whenever you need it – even if you just want to take some appliances off-grid during higher electric rate peak-use times to save money.
120V 3600W Pure Sine Wave Line 1
Nature's Generator Powerhouse Line 1 is a 120V 3600W Capacity Pure Sine Wave and it is independent from Line 2. You can power up even your sensitive electronic devices like your smart refrigerators, freezers, garage door openers, computers because our generators produce “clean” energy that can safely run these smart electronic devices without causing damage.
120V 3600W Pure Sine Wave Line 2
Have you maxed out the Powerhouse’s 3600W for your Line 1? Well guess what, you still have Line 2! With the Powerhouse, you can still bring power to more of your devices with additional 3600W for the Line 2.
