    Jackery 500 Anderson panel connector

    Hi, As the panel you're looking at has a VOC of 38.80, I would NOT use it; it could result damage to the unit due to the voltage exceeding the max input of 30V . Also, I would bear in mind that the VOC is (If I remember correctly) calculated at 25 degrees C, so if it's any colder the voltage...

    What a friendly bunch! Thanks for your kind replies 😄 Whilst I was half joking, I do see that there are several questions in the beginners forum (including my own boring tome before I edited it) that receive quite a few views but no replies. I appreciate that different forums have different...
