Solar generator question.

Post by nickbritby » Thu Aug 15, 2019 6:59 pm

I'd like to make a swamp cooler.

People usually use 100 Amp-Hr Battery (12v). But I found Jackery Portable Power Station Explorer 160.

Do you know Jackery is good for a swamp cooler?

It has a 10Ah battery so it would work for a few hours then you must recharge.

With the 50W solar it could work during the day and stay charged.

It's pretty small for that price. 50 amp hour battery would be notably cheaper. Pm me if you want details on how to rig it up
