24V systems require just a little bit of extra knowledge compared to 12V systems, but in many ways they are superior. The 24V upgrade includes the following:
- Doubles the amount of solar input charging capacity (CEP300 @ 24V can charge up to 900W) (CEP440 @ 24V can charge up to 2400W). Be sure to wire the solar panels in series! Charging 24V batteries requires 12V solar panels to be wired in series.
- Automatic upgrade to 24V (7S lithium) batteries, if your solar generator was ordered with lithium batteries.
- If an inverter is included in your order, a 24V inverter will be installed. 24V inverters have better performance because they don't suffer from voltage drop issues and they can use more % capacity of your battery.
