Glenn Beck recently stated, "Every American family should have a backup solar generator...." and we agree with the first part of his statement. The EnerPlex Generatr Y1200 portable solar generators weigh in at meer 42lbs because we use lithium-ion battery technology, not lead-acid. Most lead-acid units with similar output power weigh 100lbs or more. When paired with our Commandr Series 20 watt or 45 watt portable flexible & foldable solar panels you'll have the most powerful, portable, and lightweight solar generator kit on the market today providing you with free continuous power. With its two integrated Powerpole inputs the Generatr Y1200 is fully expandible, you can extend your run time by connecting additional 12V, 100Ah lithium-ion or lead-acid batteries to the Y1200.
EnerPlex Generatr Y1200 (Pre-Order) is rated 4.142857142857143 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loses charge after sitting unused 2-3 weeks Not as advertised where site says it should retain its charge for up to one year in storage. Also, find the other reviews hard to believe since this product wasn't available until Dec 2015.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loses Charge Saw some bad reviews but was hoping they were wrong. Purchased the Generator 1200 late Feb. 2016 and have had for ~1 week - using daily. 2 times now the generator has lost a substantial amount of battery charge (50%) with no energy use. I will continue to test for a few days to ensure I did not deplete the battery by mistake but if this still occurs, will return it. Also, loud sound upon start-up of the AC invertor - disappears after 20 seconds and normal fan sound kicks in. Also, there is a fan sound. My Goal Zero Yeti had no fan noise. The generator 1200 fan comes on and stays on the ENTIRE time the AC invertor is on and the fan is loud. This was supposed to be a quiet generator. If I wanted a noisy generator that loses or does not maintain charge, would have spent far less on gas generator. Thinking of returning and buying the Goal Zero Yeti 1250 instead (only thing holding me back is the weight of the 1250 but it is VERY reliable and you can count on it).I will try Enerplex again if they fix all these issues and will retract this post if my on-going product testing does not reproduce the charge loss experienced 2 times in 1 week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable Product! I bought this product six months ago - along with Kicker IV solar panels - and they have exceeded my expectations by far. Unlike a gas generator, it is quiet, eco friendly, and economical - sunlight is free. It gives my family and me peace of mind knowing we have a reliable source of emergency power for occasional power outages. Every home should have one.

Am I able to add additional 12v batteries to increase running time with this generator? For example a couple Optima 55ah deep cycle batteries?

Asked by: Mike D
But it can charge via 12V, so, in theory you could connect a couple deep cycle batteries together, put a cigarette lighter on them and plug this into that. Not ideal but it'll extend the range of the unit.

Do I have to flip a switch to use 110v AC outlets on the generator or just plug the item in?  Do you include a DC charging adapter to charge the generator from a wall outlet?  Finally do you recommend fully discharging the generator before re-charging?

Asked by: Rex60
Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, the Generatr needs to be turned on and the AC switched to ON before power will be sent to the AC outlets. A wall adapter is included with the unit. The Generatr does not need to be fully discharged before recharging.

You can ru 110 volts appliances on your power bank, at how much Ampere, or what would be the inverter capable of to supply, a constant 1000 watts for how long? 1200 Watt hours / 110 = 10 Amps for 1 hour  or 2 amps for 5 h is that right

Asked by: Rveuropeontour
Thanks for your inquiry! The Generatr has a 1000W maximum output. The total capacity of the battery will vary depending on load. Drawing a constant 1000W, the Generatr will last around an hour, depending on the conditions of the battery.

Can I connect a 100 watt solar panel to this battery?

Asked by: Victor
Thanks for your inquiry! The Generatr 1200 can accept up to 120W maximum input via either its 16-34V solar/AC inputs, or via the 12V Anderson inputs.

Is this unit completely silent? If not is there a decibel reading or a sound comparison for it?

Asked by: Mike D
The Generatr is considerably quieter than other generators on the market, however, it is not completely silent. In order to keep the unit cool, there are small fans inside which turn on depending on temperature.

I'm interested in using this instead of a generator to power my truck camper in the winter. Basically, I want to run a truck camper heater (propane, but uses a fan) and run lights at night. That's about it. Do you think this could handle that?

Asked by: Redneck Sam
Thanks for your inquiry! It all depends on the power draw of your devices. The Generatr 1200 has a 1231 watt-hour battery. If you are continuously drawing 100 watts from the Generatr, it will take 12.31 hours before the battery runs out (watt-hours divided by watts = hour of use). Your electronics should have technical specifications indicating how many watts they use in the manual or printed on them directly near the power supply. You can use this information to calculate how many Generatrs you'll need to support your setup!

Is the unit compatible with a 12 vehicle outlet for charging? Can the unit be charged while it is being used?

Asked by: denvernative2012
Thanks for your inquiry! The Generatr Y1200 can absolutely be charged via a 12V source using its Anderson inputs and yes, the unit can be charged while it's being used.
