Q:I have a Ford Focus Electric can it be used to charge?
by|Jul 19, 2022
6 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Not directly. You would need a converter to either turn this DC power output to 120v or 240v AC for charging. The other issue maybe that the power output on a single panel maybe too small.. the car controls the charging for level 1 and level 2 charging through on board converter and it might try and draw more power than this unit can supply  causing the converter to  trip. If you are looking for a stand alone solution this is not it.

    A:  if your car runs on a battery, then it should charge it. how fast? that not my expertise, it does however charge my camper battery in an hour. it is a 12-volt auto battery

    by|Jul 24, 2022

      A:  You cannot use this to charge your vehicle, if you set up your whole off grid solar system with inverter with 120 pure sine plug in, you might be able to do it that way, but that would be a very inefficient way to charge your vehicle. As far as connecting directly to the car battery, it is a NO, you risk damaging the battery. Please feel free to contact Nature Power tech support for any additional questions. 1800-599-0590.

      by|Jul 19, 2022

        A:  No you can not  charge  an electric vehicle with this panel. You would need at least 1200 watts. 

        by|Jul 22, 2022

          A:  No

          by|Jul 22, 2022

            A:  No this model is primarily for recharging 12V batteries in a RV, or smaller Off Grid solar set up.

              Q:I have 2 180w panels. What size controller do I need, and how many batteries would be best? Can you hook them directly to a power bank, and what size would be best?
              by|Jun 9, 2022
              1 Answer
              Answer This Question

              A:  You will need to upgrade the controller to at least a 30A. You can connect kit to as many batteries as you like, 2 x 180W panels should fully charge 4 batteries 100Ah each by sundown. For any additional questions, please call Nature Power customer service phone number at 1800-588-0590.

                A:  Yes if connected properly.

                by|Jun 4, 2022

                  A:  Yes, you can, it depends on how many solar panels you use in your solar array, The number of panels and batteries will determine the watts produced and used every day. You can buy an inverter that is off grid or pro grid to connect to your house Circuit Breaker. Please feel free to contact Nature Power tech support for any additional questions.1800-588-0590.

                  by|Jun 7, 2022

                    A:  Not really. Best use is for charging or operating 12V items.

                      A:  You can buy the Nature Power. 2-in-1 SAE wire, 10 AWG. for any additional questions, please feel free to call Nature Power tech support line at 1800-588-0590.

                      by|Feb 7, 2022

                        A:  The safe option would be the Renogy 5 string solar combine box (internet #319499676) with circuit breakers and surge protector. This unit is water proof and allows you to shut off the electrical current at the solar panels. Renogy also makes the Male/Female branch connectors (internet #301811048) and MC4 cable connectors (internet #308860705). However this option leaves you with live wires. As for wire size, DC current does not travel long distance and a heavy gauge wire is recommended.

                          I bought this panel to charge the battery on my camper, but its primary use so far has been to provide power for a small cabin using a power inverter. Take it out of the box and plug it into the charge controller and hook it up to the battery. Much better and more efficient in full sun of course, but still generates power on cloudy days. Enough for small light, radio, and charging batteries. Very happy with the purchase.

                            Hi Mark, thank you for taking the time to comment on your Nature Power 180 watt solar kit. It is too bad you didn't reach out to us at cs@rdkproducts.com as we would have sent you a charge controller same day at no charge. You would have benefited from the great sale that home depot had on this products. I believe it was over 50% off. This Nature Power Kit has almost all 5 star reviews from hundreds of customers like you. In the future, have a look on the backside of the panel as many times the charge controller is tucked behind there and taped to the back of the solar panel. Of course, if it is not there, we will make sure you get one at no charge. Thanks for being a Nature Power customer. Nature Power Tech Support Team NATUREPOWER
                              Great Panel when on sale - Buy @ $120 in July or December
                              Well built for a budget panel and I've been happy with the output this spring. These appear to go on sale for $120 in July and December. I got one last Christmas and certainly hope they do the same again this Summer and Winter. Absolutely look elsewhere compared to the ridiculous everyday price on HD, but a solid deal when on sale. I'd rather they exclude the controller as it's instant E-waste. Overall very happy as long as they continue to have times when these are reasonably priced.

                                Low power output
                                I haven’t been able to get more than 80W out of the panel. The charge controller worked for an hour and then died. I tried contacting customer service about these issues but no response. So far I’m quite disappointed in this purchase.

                                Hi Mark, Thank you for taking time to comment on your Nature Power 180 watt Solar Kit. You purchased one of our only Nature Power solar panels with almost all 5 star reviews. It is a great product. Please contact us at cs@rdkproducts.com and we will quickly resolve and troubleshoot your issues. The charge controller can be replaced at no charge if there is a problem with it. Getting 80 watts out of the solar panel is definitely something we can help with. It sounds like a simple adjustment on how you are testing the solar panel. Testing for watts takes a specific measurement tool which we will be more than happy to help you with. These panel tend to pout out close to 190 watts as they are slightly under-rated to make up for conditions in the USA that are less than sunny. We look forward to hearing from you.

                                  The panels are well constructed, seem to work well, and they mounted easily. I can't speak to the quality of the controller because I purchased a larger controller and linked two of these panels together in parallel. As expected, the panels are generating about half the current for which they are rated at best, over several weeks, but that is sufficient for my needs. I don't get a lot of bright sunny days, and my panels are mounted flat of my RV roof instead of tilted towards the sun. Given this, they are a good value... just don't expect the full rated capacity as specified, as the specs are for ideal conditions.
