Whether it's an emergency situation or a lack of power options while on the road the Solar e Power Cube 1500 from Wagan Tech will make sure you're never left without power again. The system is ideal for use as a backup power source around the home, RV's, camping, job sites and much more. The Power Cube is even powerful enough to jump start a 12V engine battery making it a must have for all road trips. The portable power station has a 1500 watt power inverter and 55 Ah hybrid battery which can be charged with its DC adapter (included), AC adapter (included) or solar panels (included). The top of the Cube unfolds to reveal five 16W monocrystalline solar panels and the system is expandable up to 150W should adding additional panels be desired. Once charged, the Solar e Cube can be stored somewhere safe for use in the event of emergency or easily brought on the go thanks to its handle and wheels allowing it to roll like that of travel luggage. It can charge a variety of items (examples in "Specifications" tab) in a variety of ways as it comes with two 110/220 volt AC outlets, two 12V DC outlets and two USB power ports ideal for powering today's handheld electronics. A push-button displays the e Power Cube battery status through its digital LED voltmeter. AC, DC and solar connecting cables are stored out of sight in the storage hatch (see side image 2
). If brought with you on the go, it is important to note that the Soar e Power Cube 1500 is not waterproof and should be protected from rain or heavy moisture.
A smaller version of this product is also available with 450W

Control Panel: refer to page 8 in the owner's manual for diagram
Contains a digital LED voltmeter for reading the battery status, a push-button to turn the voltmeter on, on/off switch for the inverter, 2 universal AC outlets, 2-12V DC outlets and 2 USB ports. The inverter operating condition is indicated by 2 separate LEDs. When green, the inverter is operating normally and when red the inverter has shut down either due to over voltage, under voltage, over temperature or overload. Additional solar panels can be added to internal solar charge controller via 2 connecting terminals. The disconnect switch for the battery can be found to the side of the control panel along with a storage hatch containing the AC and DC charging adapters.
Digital LED Voltmeter
Provides user with current charge status of the internal battery. This should be monitored periodically when charging. Solar e Power Case 450 should be charged every 3 months if device has not been used.
|=13.5V DC||Battery is fully charged|
|> or = 12.6V DC||Battery is ready for use|
|< or = 12.0V DC||Battery needs some charging|
|< 10.5V DC||Battery is discharged and needs to charge immediately|
55 Ah Hybrid Battery
Supplied batteries combine the charging characteristics and compatibility of AGM valve regulated, sealed lead-acid batteries with the improved performance of gel batteries in low discharge rate and high ambient temperature applications. Battery is electrically compatible with AGM batteries for expansion and also follows AGM charge characteristics. Gel component in them improves performance in low discharge applications.
Battery Disconnect Switch
Allows users to turn the battery off when the e Power Cube is not in use. This helps to preserve the charge of the battery. Turning this switch off is recommended whenever it is being transported or moved to prevent electrical hazard caused from excessive vibration. This switch is located to the left of the control panel.
External Battery Terminals
Red and black terminals labeled "Battery Terminal" are located on the Back Panel of the Solar e Power Cube. Battery Terminals can be used for DC load applications greater than 15 amps such as jump starting a 12V car battery (jumper cables sold separately). See page 10 in the owner's manual for further information.
It is important to charge the case for a full 24 hours before initially using it and recharge it after each use. Charge the Power Case every 3 months even if it has not been used. See page 10 of the manual for potential risks of damage to the battery.
AC Charging Adapter
Indicator light is red when the battery is charging and green when the battery has finished charging. When light is green the battery will continue to trickle charge to maintain a full charge. Input voltage automatically adjusts to 110V or 220V depending upon AC source. See page 12 of the owner's manual for charging risks.
DC Charging Adapter
Both plugs of this charger are fused at 15 amps to prevent damage if there is an inadvertent short. It is important to only used the supplied charging adapter and do not continuously charge it for more than 16 hours. See page 13 in the owner's manual for additional helpful information.
The Solar e Power Cube comes with five 16W solar panels and a connecting cable. Additional solar panels can be connected to reduce charging time up to 150W. The solar charge controller is rated at a maximum of 10A. Additional solar panel information can be found on page 14-15 of the owner's manual.
Charge the battery until full as often as possible.
Vents can be vacuumed to remove dust when all cords have been disconnected and fans turned off.
Wipe solar panels clean periodically with a damp cloth and, if needed, mild dish soap. Dry the panels with a soft cloth as they will perform more efficiently when clean.
Remove dust from panels and other debris with a soft brush.
Store the panels away when not in use.
