Components of portable solar panel generator 
 

The battery pack is the heart of a portable solar power generator. Photovoltaic cells are responsible for converting solar energy into usable electricity. The generator's output power is limited by the size and type of battery pack used, so pick one that meets your requirements. 
 
The inverter is a second essential part. The resulting alternating current (AC) can run electronics such as lights and appliances that require DC power. Getting an inverter compatible with your generator model is essential, but inverters are often interchangeable between different brands. Lastly, there is typically a control panel where basic settings, such as output voltage and wattage, can be adjusted and the system's status and performance monitored.

Another benefit of using a portable solar generator is that they are better for the environment as the source of power is solar, which means that you do not need to power your power station by using electricity from the grid which can be powered by fossil fuels.
