Heavy, and heavy duty!
First, this unit is well thought out, and unlike the first unit I bought back about 8 years ago, is a high quality, easy assembly, and more importantly, easily serviceable. The unit is in two modules, which are easily joined, and batteries installed. I couldn't even change the batteries in the first Duracell unit I had. It is also easily expandable to virtually double the capacities/run times with the addition of a second batter module. I also like the fact that I can run the unit from AC, solar, and wind power.
ProsQuality, power, ease of assembly, flexibility, and easily modified.
ConsVery heavy, because the batteries are Group 27/31. Would be great if they would offer a caster system for this beast so you can moved it around easily.
Best UsesDaily power backup and off the grid power.

how do I connect the controller to the invertor and batterys there no wire
1 Answers
Typically, the included 50ft cable can be shortened a bit further, to make the short connection from the charge controller to the Powerhub Terminal. If you require additional cable, a standard 10 gauge copper stranded wire can be used for this connection. Thank you for your inquiry!

Barbara Fitzgerald
from McLeod, MT asked:
June 17, 2016
How much does it weigh? Can you get a wheeled cart for it? What about a 50 ft. cable?
1 Answers
The main powerhub unit with the batteries installed weighs approximately 196 lbs. You can use a moving dolly, a cart with pneumatic wheels or simply purchase caster wheels and mount to the bottom of the unit. The cable that we provide is a 50' cable that gets cut in half in the field to give you 2 - 25' cables and the gauge used is proper for 25'. Any longer you will have too much voltage drop and not be able to get the full potential from your solar panels. You can accomplish reaching 50' but you would need to purchase a higher gauge cable locally. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
