Featuring a plug and play concept, Cutting Edge Power Solar Generators are the perfect companion for off-grid power at home, camping, tailgating, parties, events, construction job sites, road trips, overlanding, etc. 

Being able to supply your own battery, or use our battery makes this solar generator one of the best and least expensive options on the market.  Cutting Edge Power solar generators are completely modular with connections to add more batteries in the future.  

Solar generators are an excellent investment for hurricane / natural disaster preparation, backup power for your home, camping, tailgating, medical devices, refrigerators, air conditioners, construction equipment and tools, CPAP machines and more.  Future maintenance is easy with simple hand tools and off-the-shelf parts, unlike some solar generators that are worthless if one component fails.  Designed in America and professionally wired in Houston, TX so you can rest assured you’ll have the best performing solar generator available. 

Featuring our new high performance solar charge controller, these solar generators can be used with virtually any 12V battery on earth.  Installing your own batteries is super easy: Just connect the supplied 5/16” ring terminal wires to your battery’s posts. 

Cutting Edge Power lithium battery packs are welded, assembled and tested in Houston, TX.  Even better, our lithium batteries are factory-installed when purchased with a solar generator.  Our lithium batteries provide about +450% lifetime and +100% run time over traditional lead acid batteries.  Plus, they’re about half the size.

Hardware Features:

  • Pre-wired and ready to go: 5/16" ring battery terminals fit most batteries.
  • Pre-wired and ready to go: Plug your solar panels directly into the pre-wired solar panel connectors.  No crimping, splicing, or extra wiring needed.
  • Totally modular:
    • Exterior M6 post terminals for connecting as many additional batteries as you need.
    • Plug and play wiring solutions available separately for connecting multiple solar panels to speed up charging.
    • Car charger and faster wall chargers available for purchase.
    • Internal terminal block with extra ports for connecting your own additional 12V devices.
  • Critical connections made with the best marine grade 200°C rated silicone insulated wire we can find, and crimped or soldered in Houston, TX.
  • Heavy duty enclosure molded in USA and fits up to a size 31 lead acid battery and up to (2) of our lithium batteries (when factory installed).

Software features:

  • Automatic battery recognition for 12V Flooded, AGM and GEL batteries.  Lithium batteries can be manually set.
  • Modern and Efficient 3-stage PWM charging: equalize, boost and float (for Flooded, AGM and GEL).  2-Stage user friendly settings for lithium batteries.
  • Simple menus with a Large Back-lit LCD display. The display shows system status, solar input current, solar input voltage, battery voltage, and battery state of charge (%).  The menu rotates through these parameters automatically, so a wireless camera can be used to remotely monitor them.
  • Temperature compensation for better battery charging in cold or hot ambient temperatures.
  • All of the industry standard protections like reverse solar polarity protection, reverse battery polarity protection, battery over-discharge, battery over-voltage, and a 30A circuit breaker on the 12V sockets.

 

  • Supported by Cutting Edge Power, headquartered in the USA, with experienced technical support and a large array of accessories on our website.

Extremely Well Done

Every thing about this box was done well with quality components and some really cool 3D printed parts. Likely the strongest points are the wiring and MPPT controller. To be clear there are no real flaws with this period. Buy it and you won’t be unhappy at all. My suggestions might move it out of its very attractive price range so it is not clear if they are valid. But here are some improvements not flaws. Would like to see larger gauge wire for the battery leads. Given the battery size the box will fit and the high discharge amps of newer batteries a 6 AWG size would be more attractive. Same goes for the external posts size. Think they are 1/4. 5/16 or larger might be an improvement depending on how you used the box. I may not be looking at the wiring correctly bit it seems that the power supplied to the external posts is not fused protected. Looks like the others are protected by the resettable 30 amp circuit breaker. To be clear I did not disassemble to verify. But it does see like a breaker is needed for the external terminals. While they greatly improved the likely poor directions supplied with the MPPT controller, likely due to my inexperience, but I found the information provided to be lacking in providing a good overview of the controller operations, specifications, and lacking details like what the battery options (b0, b1,.....) are for. However the bottom line is you won’t be unhappy with this purchase and the customer service is beyond amazing. I initially ordered the modified sine wave inverter and the changed my mind to the pure sine wave. No issues at all quick email and it was done. That kind of service is unheard of these days. These are people you want to do business with.

Save yourself the time and frustration, buy this!

Really nice product! If you were to try and track down all of the different connectors and crimps to construct one of these yourself, you would easily cost yourself this in trial and error. Well with the price!

Good price for a practical piece of equipment.

I liked the versatility of this device when it comes to charging my devices while camping. I like the price for this set up since I an afford to use it with a lithium battery.
