We’ve been running an Eb55 for a little under a year to power a small fridge and charge devices etc off grid. It’s fed by a richsolar 200w panel that right now keeps up with demand from 9am-6pm. We usually need to run a generator about an hour a day to top it up to keep the fridge cool overnight or on cloudy days of course.
The AC adapter charger started getting hot around the jack a few months ago and if it wasnt in just the right position or if you bumped the cord it would stop charging. That got progressively worse till it wasn’t working at all. I wasn’t surprised as with it getting hot I figured some connection was probably melting together. I assume there is something wrong with the amount of power coming through it, but I contacted Bluetti and they sent me a new new charger altogether. Now a few months later, it’s getting hot again around the jacket.
Has anyone else dealt with this? Do I need to check my power supply etc? I have done basic house wiring, electrical etc, but am not sure what I need to be looking for in this case. Context: We usually have the adapter plugged into our camper 120v outlet, which is running on a 30a generator. I’ve also tried running it straight from the generator 120v outlet. When charging from AC the fridge is usually plugged straight into generator so the EB usually doesn’t have output at that time.
