Is it using 1800 watts of power to charge itself when its plugged in to your home outlet or does it only use a smaller wattage to charge?
Thank you for contacting Nature's Generator!
The 1800 watts denotes the amount of available power through the inverter. The unit when plugged into your home outlet, will draw approximately 90 watts of power to recharge the generator. Hopefully this helps to answer your question and please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any additonal questions.
Hi I was reading and the generator comes with a 60Ah battery can a 100Ah battery be put in it.
Unfornately cannot. 100Ah is too big to fit into Nature's Generator, but what you can do is to have a Power Pod that has 100Ah battery to daisy chain Nature's Generator. And Power Pod can be stacked right on top of Nature's Generator. Thanks
Hi can the generator be used and charge at the same time
Yes, it can be charged while in use.
I would Like to install this on my 25 foot boat. Is there a way of hooking it up to the alternator?(perhaps in series with my starting and house batteries) I also have a pro mariner charger, would this be able to be attached to that?
The Nature's Generator was already built in 12V 60Ah Sealed Lead Acid battery. If your existing batteries are also 12V, you may be able to daisy chain them through the expansion port on the back of Nature's Generator. While the alternator charges your existing batteries, it also charges the battery in Nature's Generator after it is daisy chained.
Nature's Generator has 1800watt pure sine wave on three AC output ports. You may be able to use Nature's Generator as the source of power supply for the pro mariner charger. Thank you for the interest in Nature's Generator.
my existing 100w solar panels use MC-4 connectors. How would I connect them to the Generator?
You need our solar generator cable to connect the solar panel to Nature's Generator. One end of solar panel cable is MC4 connectors. Thank you for your interest in Nature's Generator.
Can I run a blender with this too make smoothies and use a toasters oven to. Like magic bullet (900w) or a (1000w) toasters oven for quick uses.
Hi - Thank you for being interested in Natue's Generator. A quick use of high wattage devices like blender or toaster is fine.
Nature's Generator has certain tolerance to accommodate higher than the rated 1800 watts, but it is not recommended to run the devices at one time that have the total output more than the rated 1800 wattts. Thank you
what is the battery life? how many recharges?
Hello - the typical life span of the SLA battery in the Nature's Generator is about 500 to 800 cycles.
Hello, instead of using 3 solar panels of 100watts each, can I use only 1 panel of 300 watts mono type? Do you have 100 ft solar cable? I live in a Condo and I do not know is 50 ft is enough. Best Regards
The Nature's Generator is built with a 200W solar charge controller which means you won't be able to use any solar panels that are higher than 300W. If you have or know of a 200W panel that you would like to use instead of the Nature's Generator Power Panel, feel free to email us the specs so that we can help you confirm the compatibility. We currently do not have a 100ft solar panel cable, only the 50ft solar panel cable. Feel free to let us know if any other questions.
What is the continuous power output and for how long? And is this a deep cell battery? For a cabin.
The Nature's Generator has a built-in inverter with a maximum output of 1800W. The built-in battery is a 60Ah/720Wh Sealed Lead Acid battery.
For when it is time to replace batteries: are the batteries an industry standard that can be obtained multiple places, or is it a custom battery that can only be purchased from you? The question applies to both the generator and the power pack.
Although we always recommend that replacement batteries for the Nature's Generator and Nature's Generator Power Pod be sourced through us when it's time for replacement, sourcing them elsewhere is still an option.
When sourcing elsewhere, we recommend you pay attention to the following details:
1. Ensure that you source a sealed lead acid battery with the same capacity.
2. Ensure the battery you source has campatible terminals.
3. Ensure the battery size is appropriate to fit inside the Generator or Power Pod
Can I attached additional Solar Panels to the Wind Input port, since the Solar Input port is limited to 200 Watts? I would like to achieve a quicker recharge time by having (5) 100 Watts Solar Panels attached to the Generator, two on the Solar Input and three on the Wind Input.
Hello, you cannot connect solar panels to the wind input on the Nature's Generator. Although the solar and wind inputs may look the same, they do not support the same cable connectors. If you are looking to increase your recharge ability using the wind input you can connect up to two wind turbines in addition to the two solar panels.
