After purchasing a Home 1 and a Solar 2, found out they are not compatible (without the adapter). Ordered the adapter and installed the system with the extension cable. Adapter got a shipping delay (always), so I cut the end off the extension cable and spliced on the end from the car power adapter to plug in. Getting about 100 watts continuously from the Solar 2 panel and the security system was using 14 watts plugged into the Home 1 (1000 watt- fully charged 100%) onboard AC outlet. At about 11pm the security system transmitted an “AC power loss” so the AC outlet must’ve turned off. I was worried about this continuous use scenario and the AC outlet because it runs some sort of internal fan as well. Drove out the next morning and connected the security system directly to the 12V output via the car power adapter (I previously cut the end off), now drawing 10 watts. So far it’s been working unattended for 3 days. No power loss or interruption yet
I purchased the cables so that I could move the solar panels around in my yard and keep my SolarPower2 generator on my covered deck to protect it against the weather. Works great.
Very effective for recharging the Home power 2, without having to move the unit outside.
