Question

Will this system work with...

Will this work with a 1000 2000-watt, 12-volt DC to 120-volt AC power inverter (instead of the one included)? Can it charge a 12-volt 35Ah cyclical lead-acid battery?

Even though, it comes with a 200watt/400watt surge inverter... I bought a Cobra 1575 unit (1500watt/3000watt surge) to use on this system.. Works great... going to upgrade soon to the 3000watt Cobra unit soon.

Yes, it could charge such a battery.. however, if you wish to have a battery to run for longer terms, I would highly recommend the "MODEL 27" Deep Cycle Group of Batteries for Solar/Wind...

Here is a link to show you the exact type of batteries I use in my battery bank with the Coleman Solar unit from Walmart..

I use this syetm with 4 6 volt batteries in my ice cream truck and I use a 3000 watt inverter with it, it runs my freezers, fridge and microwave plus i use my laptop with it. It keeps my system charged for 3 -4 days before I plug in to shore power.
Hope this helps

Personally, I would HIGHLY recommend using Deep Cycle Batteries with Solar/Wind Units... unlike regular auto 12volt batteries, the Deep Cycle are made to release and accept charges at small amounts, and not at a BURST..

Here is a link denoting the exact type of batteries I use... Model 27 units, RV Deep Cycle Batteries 12volt

Usually C9 Incandescent Christmas lights consume about 7 Watts and there are 25 to a string. This works out to approximately 175 Watts per hour. The 55W Solar kit would provide approximately 2 hours of running time per night.
