What Can the Hysolis 4,500 Power?
We’d like to be clear here and say that the Hysolois 4,500Wh solar generator can power just about anything. The 3000W continuous inverter rating allows for tons of power output with the massive battery bank supporting long continuous runtimes (shop power inverters). To put it into perspective, the Hysolis 4,500Wh solar generator can power a full-size fridge for multiple days on one single charge.
The generator’s 6000W surge rating makes it perfect for seamlessly powering up high-demand devices, and the technology is well protected against internal damage. While you will likely be powering many of these items at once, this massive solar generator can deliver the following expected run times:
- Smartphones (5-7 watts): 750+ hours
- Tablets (25-40 watts): 150+ hours
- Laptops (50 watts): 90+ hours
- Electric Blanket (Queen Size, 75 watts): 60 hours
- 50" LED LCD TV* (65 watts) : 69 hours
- Refrigerator (55 watts): 81 hours
- Chainable USB LED Lights (6 watts): 750 hours
- CPAP Machine (30 watts): 150 hours
How do you charge the Hysolis?
There are three main ways to charge a Hysolis portable power station. The generator is sold with an AC charger which can be plugged into ordinary wall sockets and a DC adapter for car charging. Solar panels are sold separately, and the generator can be charged at voltages from 60VDC-150VDC with input up to 1500W of solar energy.
Best Uses for the Hysolis 4500Wh Solar Generator
With 3000W of continuous power (the same as the Titan solar generator from Point Zero), the possibilities are endless in terms of what the Hysolis 4500 can be used for. While we won’t recommend lugging this thing out on your next backpacking trip, the Hysolis 4500 is designed to be portable, while remaining stationary when in use. As a fumeless and compact generator, there are few limitations on the Hysolis 4500Wh solar generator’s capabilities.
Back-up Home Power
The Hysolis 4500Wh solar generator can be used as a backup source of home energy with its grid power bypassing capabilities. Just like today’s automatic gas generators, this fully electric product can be depended on during grid blackouts or periods of unreliable power. Here, the key difference is the Hysolis can be used indoors and also recharged with free, sustainable solar energy.
Portable Power for RVs, Vans, Campers, and Skoolies
If you’re looking for a massive battery bank to help power your life on the road, the Hysolis 4500Wh has everything you need and more. You will no longer have to sacrifice any of the electrical luxuries in an RV, camper, or converted school bus with seemingly unlimited power and storage capacity from the Hysolis 4500Wh solar generator.
