Previous deal posted is marked as "Expired", but its LIVE again:

Great deal IF you are already invested in the 40v ecosystem, and have a bunch of 40v batteries.

I now have 6 40V batteries, so it was a no-brainer for me.

Kind of.... Solar Charging RYOBI 40V Batteries (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g19H-rOY4rg)

=============

A good review (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv42buDRqZY), this RYi1802 unit was not ready for prime time, nor does it meet specifications.... Perhaps Gen 2 version will improve.

Description says you cannot recharge with solar.

With 4 batteries, likely 3-4 hours.

No. Not directly anyway, you'd have to connect your solar panels to an inverter first, then use the AC output from the inverter to power this - wasting a ton of energy in the process, and even then it would only charge the batteries sequentially.



That 114 w/h figure is incorrect. The 40v 4ah batteries are 144w/h, so 576Wh total.

The other 40v variants:
5Ah - 180Wh / 720Wh
6Ah - 216Wh / 864Wh
7.5Ah - 270Wh / 1080Wh
8Ah - 280Wh / 1120Wh
9Ah - 324Wh / 1296Wh
12Ah - 432Wh / 1728Wh

I don't have one of these, but there's a testing video on YouTube that calculated an efficiency rate of 73% - which is about on par with the larger capacity battery power stations on the market I've seen.

FWIW, the best deal on a solar capable and 2000+Wh battery generator with solar input I've seen in the last few months is the Leoch 2000Wh (it's actually underrated and is 2200Wh) on Amazon for $924 (Clip coupon, then Google for the current additional discount code). It has its pros and cons, but a very good deal, LiFePo4, has solar input, has automatic switching for UPS functionality, and it runs at 84% efficiency. Hobotech on YouTube has two review videos that really go in depth on testing and features.
My relatives have this inverter and the (6 Ah) batteries are behemoths in my opinion and this thing needs 4 of them to maximize efficiency. I think Ryobi is offering or will offer 12 Ah batteries soon. I'm guessing, you'll have to get into shape to carry this thing around. Or invest in a cart or mod a wheel system to drag it.

This is a good inverter and it can power a microwave but aren't you better off just getting one of those dedicated Anker, Jackery or Bluetti type battery station that are already solar panel compatible?

Can we connect a solar panel to this inverter directly to charge the batteries?

Each battery outputs 450W without overheating?

IF you already have Ryobi 40v batteries, you are better off getting this than a Anker/Jackery etc.

The 4ah ryobi batteries are rated at 114 w/h. If you want power output (Wattage) this is probably good for you. But the unit bundled with batteries is frequently on sale for about 650 if I remember correctly.

But the runtime will be nowhere near that of an Anker/Jacker/Ecoflow/Bluetti. For roughly $500-600 they will give you about 500 w/h but only 600~1200 watts output.

The stand alone units will charge much faster than the Ryobi on it's own but if you have the ryobi ecosystem you could be swapping out batteries and charging off grid with the 1 hour charger.

There is no mention of watt hours. Does this not have built in capacity, is it totally reliant on a collection of 40V batteries?

From everything I have read, it really likes four 6amp or larger 40v batteries. From all the deals, most have plenty of 4amp, but you still have to somehow charge them.

For the type of money required to set this up to run 1400 watts or so steady and still need some way to charge the batteries, I would use scalable solar from 12 to 48v to 12v to 48v battery storage to invert out and call it a day... but wind has it's possibilities.

It's totally reliant on you adding in Ryobi 40v batteries, upto 4 of them

Seems pricey still for no batteries included. Probably will drop once shine wears off.
