I am really being tempted to buy a huge solar battery. My apartment gets such great sun, that when the sun is out and my current battery is charged I feel like I am wasting electricity.
I found something that I really like called the SUAOKI portable power generator line. I have a minor concern about the company reliability. One of the negative reviews said they were treated terribly so that is never a good sign. However there are far more good experiences, so it is possible this was a fluke of customer service. I like that they have a great price and a huge capacity.
I also researched other large battery companies and I haven’t found one that I am thrilled with. The Big Genny company salesman never followed up with me, so it is clear that they don’t want my business. It is difficult to get a battery with a large capacity, Lifepo4, and good customer service. There are more expensive options and cheaper ones, but I don’t like their battery type, and/or customer service.
I just might have to wait. Solar power isn’t going to stop tomorrow, even if I can’t fully take advantage of it now. I really want to run my laptops off of it so I am just trying to balance the current nice feeling it would be, with the future feeling of saving more money and being more environmental. It is not clear what the most responsible choice is. If I buy it now, then the battery isn’t going to last for 10 years. However I will reduce electricity usage. However if I buy it in the future, then I will have a battery that lasts longer which is more environmental but I will be missing out on saving the electricity until I buy it. Honestly either choice is ok.
These are my problems. What are yours?
