Im looking at buying a Bluetti AC200P or AC200Max (when it comes back into stock) and using Renogy 100 Watt 12 Volt Monocrystalline Compact Design for panels. Can I use these panels and just plug and go or do I need to take extra steps to make this work?

Planning to get a AC200Max too.... Think saw a video that said there is a minimum voltage to charge by solar. over 36V sometimes more. I have the same panel and it only kicks out 18v..

I have renogy latest ones. I put three in series cuz input volts in weaker sun not high enough. Check dc open ckt volts on panels. When current flows it can drop too low. Then zero. If those panels get -5% shaded the volts drop too. Also had one plug not pushed all the way in. It clicked. Fixed. I tried four; 1,2 in parallel, 3,4 also. Then 1/2 in series to 3/4. Not charging. Now just 1,2,3 in series. Getting only about 210 max in full sun Noon. Wire #10 gauge 100'. Sags. Used as low use unit.

I believe The 36v minimum charge was for the ac200 and ac200p, (I griped about that to them!)
the ac200max minimum charge voltage for solar panels is claimed to be 10vdc, and up to 145vdc. Which is awesome imo. So if you only have one 100watt panel you should still be able to charge on a decent solar day.

BTW Bluetti shipped first US batch out of US warehouse Sept 24th.

I just got a step up device from bluetti to raise pv inputs. It lught help. Renogy mc-4 connectors are sticky with other brands. Might put mild approved lube on o rings. Used pliers to pull apart on eb240 I use two Renogy 100's in parallel then in series with two others. Four in series gives EO17. Renogy at 33° lat here picky. If not at 15° to sun output poor. Good luck
