Bluetti Generator Solar Panel Wiring & Setup Guide - Step by Step
How to charge your Bluetti Generator with Solar Panels
Wondering what the best way to connect solar panels into your EB 150 Bluetti Solar Generator or your EB240 Solar Generator? This wiring guide will outline everything you need. From solar panel options and exact cables, as well as provide you with a handy diagram on how to connect the panels into your Bluetti solar generator.
Below is a description of the fastest way to charge your Bluetti solar generator using solar panels.
We suggest getting 4 x high quality and affordable solar panels that are each 100 watts and 12 volts.
You don't necessarily need to have (4) panels, as you can go with three, two or even 1 panel, but this just means you can't generate as much sun energy and this guide is all about outlining the best solar panel wiring setup to charge your Bluetti solar generator as quickly as possible.
Flexible vs Rigid Solar Panels
When deciding whether or not to go with Rigid or Flexible panels, it depends on your needs. If you plan on keeping the panels outside in the elements 24/7, maybe on top of your Van or RV, then we highly suggest rigid panels. Rigid panels will last longer out in the elements and withstand mother nature better over time.
However, if you plan on using the panels more sparingly, or only taking them out to charge the Bluetti once in a while, maybe keeping the panels in the garage then flexible panels will be perfect for you. They are much lighter and easier to move.

Panel Wiring & Cables
When it comes to wiring and cables for the solar panels, there are 3 parts we suggest getting. 10 gauge extension MC4 cabling and a branch connector. We always suggest 70 feet because it's nice to be able to keep the solar panels out in the sun while the Bluetti solar generator is in the shade or inside the house where you need it. That being said, you can get any length of MC4 extension cabling you want.
We've found it's cheapest to get the first 2 parts on Amazon, so we've provided (affiliate) links for you below.

Below you will find a diagram that explains how to put everything together. Its a super simple 4-step (plug-and-play) process which anyone can do. Once you have the 4 panels hooked up to your generator, you will be able to recharge your Bluetti solar generator in 3.5-4 hours!
