Best Solar Panels Compatible With Aeiusny Power Stations

Charge Your Portable Aeiusny Power Station/Solar Generator With Solar Panels

Aeiusny is a pretty popular power station brand, also known as solar generators, that are popular to bring camping outdoors, but also among homeowners that want to have an emergency battery in case the power goes out.

Most solar generators don’t come with solar panels, but they have electronics inside of them that makes it possible.

Today I would like to help you find solar panels that are compatible with Aeiusny’s batteries. I am also going to show you how you can connect third-party panels from companies like Renogy, HQST, Newpowa, and Eco-Worthy.

Before we look at the solar panels, let’s take a look at the Aeiusny power stations and what their input limitations and ratings are.

Solar Panels Compatible With Aeiusny Solar Generators

So as we can see in the table above, Aeiusny isn’t very good at advertising max wattages and voltages.

If you have the 250W or the 296Wh, you have a couple of more options than if you have the 288Wh since it’s unclear what kind of input the 288Wh can handle.

The solar panels that are compatible with each of the Aeiusny batteries are the Chafon 40WAeiusny 60W, and Rockpals 80W.

How To Use Third-Party Solar Panels

If a solar panel has MC4 connectors, you can use this adapter (click to view on Amazon) to plug it into the Aeiusny solar generator.

It pairs directly with the 5.5×2.1mm input ports on the 250Wh and 296Wh models, but with the 288Wh you need to use the little adapter Aeiusny includes.

What you need to know is that the 250W and 296Wh can handle up to 30V VOC and 4/5A. A 100W solar panel generates about 6A at most, so I don’t recommend using a panel larger than 100W.

Aeiusny also makes a MC4 to 2 pin adapter (click to view on Amazon) which should be compatible with most third-party panels and the 288Wh. To be safe I would use a panel with a VOC rating below 22V like the Renogy 50W. The adapter is a little bit confusing because in one picture it appears that it has a positive male connector, while in the other picture it shows a negative male connector on the adapter.

If you have a solar panel with a DC 5.5×2.1mm output port, you can also use this adapter (click to view on Amazon).

The most common configuration on solar panels with MC4 connectors is that it has a positive male connector and a negative female connector. I would recommend checking the adapter with a multimeter before plugging it in to make sure you’re plugging positive to positive.

How Long Will It Take To Recharge With Solar Panels?

It depends on how large the battery is and how many watts the solar panel produces.

For example, a 200Wh solar generator can be recharged in five hours if a solar panel generates 40W. 200/40=5.

A 60W solar panel generates about 40-50W since they’re not 100% efficient.

How Do I Improve The Charging Efficiency When Using A Solar Panel?

The easiest thing you can do that will improve the charging speed is to tilt/angle the solar panel towards the sun. If the solar panel is facing the sun directly, it will do a much better job of turning the solar rays into electricity.

Another thing you should do is make sure the solar panel isn’t shaded, even a little bit. With some solar panels, a small bit of shade will decrease the charging output significantly.

Can I Use Any Solar Panel With Any Solar Generator?

I have answered this question in a separate post, click here to read it.

If you have experience with either of the Aeiusny devices and can add/confirm the polarity of the ports and the adapters, please let me know by leaving a comment. I appreciate any help to make sure this post is as accurate as possible.

  1. Hey Jesse,

    I’m a total newbie at this solar stuff. After a few weeks of research, frustration and headaches, I finally made my first solar purchases this past weekend. First, I have to say that I can’t believe how difficult it is to get even basic information about these power stations, much less any detail! If I’d been involved in R&D, built myself what I thought was the perfect solar power station, I’d be really pissed that the marketing folks never even mentioned any of the great features I’d implemented! On the other hand, I can also see where in some cases R&D might have told marketing not to mention some things that were truly pathetic! LOL!

    Anyway, after a bunch of research I finally gave up on that battle since I’d found two models that seemed to have the features I wanted: the Aeiusny 500 and the Jackery 300. As far as I could tell, both had the capacity and output I thought I might need, as well as lithium batteries & MTTP controllers, both could charge via solar, 12v or 110v, both supported pass through charging, and both allowed me to use all of their outputs at the same time. Since the Jackery 300 is more expensive and currently sold out everywhere, and since I could buy a used Aeiusny 500 locally on OfferUp for about half the price of new, I got the Aeiusny! I also found an AllPowers 50w flexible solar panel available for sale locally, so I got that as well. I had to laugh — as if to prove what I said earlier about the hassles involved in getting info, for my solar panel, the AllPowers website lists the specs as well as showing a picture of the specs listed on the product itself…. and they don’t match!

    Unfortunately, the power station was missing it’s solar charging adapter, and this web page of yours was what helped me make a my own. Thank you so much!! I don’t think I would have found it otherwise since I had no idea what sorta connector I needed, and your “2 Pin aviation” got me headed in the right direction. So I thought I’d let you know what I eventually found.

    After looking at various 2 pin aviation type applications, I eventually narrowed this particular connector down to being a 2 pin CB mic connector. Strange but true! It’s an exact fit for the connector on a CB radio microphone cable. Fortunately I found an online vendor, Vetco, who happens to be local that had the connector in stock. So with that and a couple MC4 connectors that I found at a electrical supply store, I’m all set!

    Let me know if there’s other info you might want about this unit and I’ll see if I can figure it out. In the meantime, thanks much for your info! It’s greatly appreciated!

    Bob
