I know, I know, the AC200Max uses 500 watts to charge via AC. But I’ve read that an inverter connected to a car battery should be no more than 400 watts. Is there any way to charge the AC200Max using the AC charger connected to a 400 watt inverter? I want to leave the solar cable in the DC input and the AC cable in the AC input at all times.
@Angela Sorry, this is not allowed. the AC adapter has to be 500W or more to charge. If you have a 12V/24V battery, you can charge the AC200Max via the DC charging port.
The 400w inverter limit on a car isn’t a hard number, its more about the limit of the cigarette lighter style plug. If you draw too much current from that connection it should blow the fuse, but it could also melt down and catch fire. Also even if you hooked up a 500W inverter it may not be enough to power the AC charger. The inverter and AC charger almost certainly will draw more than 500W so you would need a 750w or even 1000w inverter. Not saying you cant do that but you would probably be putting that connection under too much current. If you had one laying around to try you could see if it works.
Just connect a AC-DC 24V (100W - 240W) power supply to the solar input.
With that I always charge in case solar panel generate to much energy from mains and I can automaticly charge anywhere the Bluetti anywhere in the house…
