Background

An introduction to solar generators and Cutting Edge Power:

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 of Cutting Edge Power products 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 controllers, these solar generators can be used with virtually any 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.

More about our lithium batteries

 

SAFE. COMPATIBLE. POWERFUL. 

Cutting Edge Power's wind and solar lithium-ion battery modules are the best way to pack more power and run time into a smaller space.*  Leveraging the amazing performance of our lithium cells and the resulting smaller footprint, our battery modules provide up to +450% lifetime and +100% run time over traditional batteries!

#1: SAFE.

The cells are imported from the most reputable cell manufacturers in the world that also supply Tesla and other high performance companies.  Cells are arranged in plastic holders.  These plastic holders are a custom in-house design and they're made in our shop.  The cells are then welded together using a special machine designed and built by Cutting Edge Power!  The plastic holders are then assembled and mounted inside your solar generator.  All of this is done in Houston, TX.  

Each cell array is continuously monitored by redundant Battery Management Systems (BMS), not just one like most battery manufacturers.  If one module were to go out, you would still have the remaining modules in operation.  The multiple BMS systems protect all cells against overcharging, overdischarging, as well as overcurrent.  They also equalize all the cell voltages and keep the pack running cool.

#2: COMPATIBLE.

PERFECT FOR SOLAR OR WIND TURBINE CHARGING.

Our lithium battery modules will be factory installed in any Cutting Edge Power solar generator when purchased together.  Adding a lithium batteries to an existing Cutting Edge Power solar generator is as easy as ordering a pizza with our custom drop downs.  

We call them modules, because our entire solar generator product line is modular.  We understand sometimes you need testing before you know how many batteries you need.  More battery modules can easily be added later and it only takes about 5 minutes.

We don’t believe in proprietary connectors or special permanent installations.  No other connection or additional assembly on your part is required!  Terminals on our battery modules allow you to quickly and easily replace old batteries.  You can even replace our batteries with a different type or manufacturer!

*Why are they so small, what’s the catch?

Our battery cells were pioneered by the auto industry so they have a high energy density in order to keep cars lightweight and extend their range. This means a smaller battery pack can have up to 2x the run time as a standard SLA battery.  Combining the small size and higher energy density, our batteries will maximize your run time in a compact solar generator!

DIYers love our lithium batteries for the small footprint, cool operating temperatures and high energy density!

 #3: POWERFUL.

Only our lithium batteries provide about +450% lifetime and +100% run time over traditional lead acid batteries.  Plus, they can do this in about half the size!

Compared with traditional batteries, Cutting Edge Power lithium ion batteries have a higher run time, higher cycle lifetime, better power density and charge faster.  They also weigh less than LiFePO4 and a single module can even provide a higher discharge rate than multiple SLA or LiFePO4 batteries! In wind and solar applications, our lithium batteries have proven to be superior against lead acid, NiCd, AND lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries.

Great products, great people

First off, not many businesses have the level of support that these guys offer. Bobby and Thania have been awesome to work with. Placed my order and upgraded the inverter to a 500 pure sine wave...had the unit 2 weeks later. Built quality is perfect. The wiring is perfect. Bought this to power my portable fridge, lights, and other miscellaneous devices while camping. Paired it with a group 30 battery that fits perfectly in the box. Tested it with the fridge and it works flawlessly. Paired it with a Renogy folding 100 watt panel...works flawlessly. You could spend $1000 and get a jackery...or spend $500ish (with a battery) and be able to further customize it down the line, if necessary. I recommend their products and mostly their customer service. Thanks again, Bobby and Thania!

Great company

I purchased this a little over a year ago. It has worked perfectly during that period of time. Recently the charging controller quit working. I contacted the company they sent a replacement immediately no problems whatsoever. I love the product & Customer Service. If you’re looking to purchase a generator get this one. Five stars easy. I really give a five star review. This company deserves it.

Good service, good product

What I like most about this design is the modularity. It enables the user to swap out batteries, inverters, charge controllers, etc. Without too much difficulty. You can add batteries in parallel as well through the external terminals. Future proof system that won't turn into a paper weight if a component fails. Couple that with responsive customer service and its a solid choice. Just be sure to do your research ahead of time so you know what you are buying. Returning these devices is a challenge not worth undertaking.

Awesome Product

I was given this as a Christmas present, as well as the 100 ah SLA AGM battery sold on Cuttingedgepower.com. I can't express how pleased I am with this product. I do a lot of off-roading and camping, and got this to power my camping fridge, heated blanket, tools, etc. I looked at other big brand solar generators, and it seemed all I was going to get out of one of those brands was a fancy box, and twice the price. I am a generator mechanic and work with wiring frequently. I can say that this box was built professionally, with high quality components. I could have certainly built this box, but it is nice to buy something "done" sometimes. My only slight gripe is that it is not water proof. I know I could have bought the "fortress," but that was too big for my truck bed when it is loaded with gear. This will be living its life in my truck bed, so I had to improvise another box to keep it in (as noted in the photos). I have already recommended this product to friends, and I would not hesitate to purchase from Cutting Edge Power again!

More Solar Charging
More Inverter Output

Customize it your way
Pure Sine and Mod Sine

Both inverter options for any application. If in doubt, pure sine is the best option.

Don't take our word for it

This system meets our exact needs. We live in a hurricane zone and want to have temp power when necesary. We also use the system for some other things day to day to keep the batteries cycling and to do some load tests for our own knowledge. The price per watt for this system is very good.
