DC input question

AC300, B300
If I’m maxed out on my PV input on the AC300 using the DC1/DC2 input port (4PIN) at 1,200 DC1 and 1,200 DC2, can I plug in a 500w wind turbine into the B300 DC input (XT90) knowing that it has an MPPT controller? Or do I need the D050S charging enhancer plugged into the B300?

The B300 has only 200 watt solar input. It’s the B300S that has 500 watts but that doesn’t work with the AC300. I have only limited knowledge of wind turbines but from what I have discovered it is not best practice to use a solar designed MPPT charge controller for a wind turbine and it’s better to get a controller designed to work specifically with wind turbines. The Charge enhancer could work although less efficiently. You would need to make sure you get a 48V wind turbine to get good throughput. Check this video as to why Charge enhancer and watts at different voltage levels

Will a 48v turbine work with the D050’s MPPT controller? This would be the only way.

Sorry, wind charging is not supported yet.

That’s a Bummer Bluetti!
