Introducing the ECO-WORTHY 280Ah LiFePO4 Battery, a lightweight power solution perfect for RVs. With this single battery, you can use the Victron IP22 battery charger, keeping costs low with just one charger needed. With a capacity of 3584Wh and the option to expand up to 57.3kwh, this battery comes with a built-in 200A BMS for protection against overcharge, over-discharge, short-circuit, and more. Additionally, it boasts an impressive lifespan of over 6000 deep cycles, ensuring durability and reliability for long-term power needs.

ECO-WORTHY 200 Watts 12 Volt - 24 Volt Solar Panel Kit with High Efficiency Monocrystalline Solar Panel and 30A PWM Charge Controller for RV, Camper, Vehicle, Caravan and Other Off Grid Applications

The ECO-WORTHY solar panel system. These panels use high-performance monocrystalline solar cells, offering up to 21.5% higher efficiency in optimal light conditions.

I purchase these kits because they’re more cost-effective than buying individual solar panels, mounting hardware, and wiring separately. The only component I don’t use from the kit is the PWM charge controller. I bought two kits and merged them together.

Built to endure, the panels feature a corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy frame that can withstand strong winds and heavy snow loads, ensuring durability. The IP65 rated junction box provides complete protection. Installation is a breeze with pre-drilled holes and plug-and-play cables on each panel.

The kit includes 2 pieces of 100W mono solar panels, 2 sets of Z mounting brackets, a 30A solar controller, a pair of 16.4ft 10 AWG solar cables, a pair of 2-in-1 connectors, and a pair of 4.92ft tray cables.

Victron Energy Blue Smart IP22 12-Volt 30 amp 120VAC, Single Output Battery Charger

The Victron Energy Blue Smart IP22 12-Volt 30 amp 120VAC with single Output is a top-notch battery charger. It offers wireless monitoring of voltage and current, allows for easy adjustment of settings. Thanks to its microprocessor controlled adaptive battery management, it optimizes charging based on how the battery is used. It's also highly efficient and has safeguards against overheating, operating with up to 94% efficiency and generating less heat compared to standard chargers. Moreover, it can charge Li-ion batteries using a simple bulk-absorption-float algorithm.

Ampeak 1200W Pure Sine Wave Inverter

It provides precise data on input voltage, output voltage, output current, and output power. Safety is a top priority, with the inclusion of 17 safety protections, surpassing industry standards. The inverter also has a spark-free protection circuit that stops output in case of improper connections or short circuits, preventing potential hazards.

Moreover, the automatic shutdown function has been removed, giving users more control over usage time without unexpected interruptions. An upgraded silent fan ensures a quieter and more comfortable experience while effectively dissipating heat, allowing the device to operate reliably even in tough conditions.

Ampeak AC Power Inverter Remote

The Ampeak Power Inverter Remote On/Off Switch makes it easy to control your power inverter from a distance. It works with various models, including pure sine 1200W, pure sine 2000W, pure sine 3000W, modified sine 1500W, and 2000W high power inverters. Its flush mountable design makes installation smooth and hassle-free, giving a tidy look. With the soft switch feature, you can easily turn it on or off. You can operate the inverter from up to 20 feet (6 meters) away, providing unmatched convenience.

ECO-WORTHY 40A MPPT Solar Charge Controller 12V/24V DC Input

This solar charge controller is super versatile, working with both 12V and 24V DC solar systems. It can handle up to 560W (12V) or 1120W (24V) input from your solar panels and gives out a maximum of 40A to charge your batteries. Its MPPT technology is top-notch, boasting efficiency up to 99% and a peak conversion rate of 98%, which is 40% better than old-school PWM controllers. It keeps charging steady even on cloudy days, making the most of available sunlight. Plus, it's compatible with different battery types like Gel, AGM, Lithium, LiFePO4, Flooded, and NCM/NCA, giving you flexibility. You can easily keep an eye on things with its OLED screen, checking PV voltage, battery voltage, charging current, and power status. And adjusting settings for different battery types is a breeze with intuitive buttons. Safety's a priority too, with a 4-stage charging protocol for lead-acid batteries (bulk, absorb, float, and equalize) and a 2-stage charge for lithium batteries and lithium reactivation.

140-Watt Portable Solar - By AllPowers Solar

140W Foldable Solar Panel with versatile output options to meet your various power needs. Featuring MC-4 Output delivering up to 25A current, dual USB-A ports for charging gadgets, an 18V DC output for car batteries and portable generators, and a PD60W USB-C output for fast laptop charging. The junction box parallel connecting port allows for connecting multiple panels. Made from high-efficiency solar cells with up to 22% efficiency, this panel provides ample energy for laptops, power stations, cellphones, and more. Lightweight and portable, it's 1/3 lighter than similar silicon panels and folds down to a compact size of 22x14.2x0.2 inches, weighing just 9.9lbs, making it ideal for off-grid adventures. Constructed with durable and waterproof nylon, along with short circuit and surge protection technology, it ensures safe and reliable performance in any environment. You will also need a portable MPPT charge controller with this. I recommend the Bateria 10A MPPT Charge Controller.

QWORK RV Battery Monitor Voltmeter Ammeter, Voltage Current Range 8V-80V, 0-100A Voltage Current Meter

The Battery Condition monitor offers high-precision current detection, providing detailed insights into the status of your battery bank akin to a fuel gauge, allowing you to easily assess its condition. Equipped with a large backlit LCD display, it presents multiple battery metrics such as voltage, current, consumed power, and battery capacity for clear visibility and monitoring. Additionally, the device is designed to automatically store the last testing data when the system shuts off, ensuring convenience and continuity in tracking battery performance. With a voltage range of 8V to 80V and a current range of 0 to 100A, it caters to a wide array of applications, including mobile and portable equipment, balance cars, cleaning machines, e-bikes, instruments, RVs, boats, caravans, and more, making it a versatile and indispensable tool for battery management across various settings.

Low Watt Air Conditioner

This is the only 6000 BTU inverter air conditioner I know of. When you first turn it on, it uses about 750 watts of power, but after about 10 minutes, it decreases to around 200 watts. The advantage of having an inverter air conditioner is that it operates on very little power and can cool a space of up to 260 square feet. I've tried it out in my RV, and it works really well. Additionally, it's much quieter than a typical roof air conditioner, about 10 times quieter. By the way, I don't recommend using 12-volt roof air conditioners with solar power because they use too much energy, which isn't efficient for a small battery or solar setup.
