Modular expansion is a relatively new but fast-growing staple in the Solar Generator field. The ability to expand your storage capacity in a user-friendly fashion is an extremely valuable capability for many reasons.
This feature will allow the user to power more items, for longer periods of time. Giving each consumer the best bang for their buck.
User-friendly add on batteries also allow the owner to increase their power storage over time, which is perfect for folks on a budget or those unsure of their power needs.
Simple connection using a single cable or port adapter gives the user a super quick and easy installation. The hook up process takes less than 5 minutes and can be performed by absolutely anyone.
For your convenience, we have collected all of the most popular solar generators and put together an easy guide, explaining which expansion batteries should be paired with each corresponding unit.
The innovator that started it all, Natures Generator, was the first to offer easy to connect, all-in-one expansion batteries for their system. However, with the newly released Elite, you want to make sure you pick up the proper Expansion Pod.
With the Yeti Tank and Link Module Kit, you can add 1200 Wh of storage per Tank. You will require the implementation of the Goal Zero Link Module (included with the Tank and Link kit). This is the connection point between the Tanks and the Generator. However, once you have one of these modules, you can add as many tanks as you like. "Click Here" to view the individual Yeti Tanks.
DIY/Individual Component Systems
Expanding DIY or à la carte Solar Systems is rather simple as well. Just be sure to use the same battery composition and voltage when adding additional storage. (For example, Lithium with Lithium, SLA with SLA, 12V with 12V, 24V with 24V and so on).
A good rule of thumb is to add on additional PV Solar Panels alongside battery upgrades. Doing so will ensure your system still has the power it needs to fully recharge the expanded battery bank.
