Advantages of the Enerplex 1230 Watt Generator w/ Goal Zero Solar Panels
The Enerplex 1230 is a user-friendly solar generator that provides an average amount of power for its size – plus a number of helpful features.
Small and Light
The first thing you’ll notice about this generator is its compact size.
The unit measures just 15 x 12 x 21 inches, and weighs a little over 35 pounds, making it completely portable.
Carry handles on each end of the top make transport easier.
Adequate Power for Home and Away
The unit provides up to 1230 watts of power, which means it can power lights, computers, televisions, and stereos while also offering fast charging for smartphones, cameras, laptops and drones.
The unit’s battery can also power one or two small appliances for several hours.
Plenty of Outlets
The Enerplex 1230 has at least one of each type of outlet port you would need, including three AC outlets, a laptop port, three USB ports, and an accessory port, all located together on the front interface.
Powerful Solar Panels
Goal Zero’s Nomad 100 watt solar panels are an excellent addition to this generator, providing fast recharging in the sun while also being easily collapsible.
The Enerplex 1230’s size makes it a great choice for a portable solar generator for camping and other outdoor activities.
In addition, the wattage supplied by this unit makes it suitable as a low-end backup power source for your home.
Storage For Accessories
This is a really nice feature.
The top of the unit includes a snap-close storage bin to carry extra accessories such as cords, cables, your phone, or anything else you can fit in. This makes it perfect for outdoor/portable use.
The generator has plenty of perks, but it could provide more power for its weight.
1230 watts for a unit this size is good, but some backup generators this size and weight provide nearly double that amount.
If you are planning on powering multiple appliances at once, you may be a bit disappointed in the battery’s duration.
The Enerplex 1230 bridges the gap between a home backup and a portable generator.
If you are planning on only powering your smallest devices while charging your phones during an outage, you’ll be plenty satisfied with this unit, especially when considering the fast recharge provided by the Nomad panels.
The portable aspect makes this generator one of the better choices, as you are basically getting one that can be used for two different applications.
