The Titan 1000 Rigid Kit is one of the best “go-to” options amongst all the kit options. The Titan 1000 Rigid is perfect for long term power outages often caused by hurricanes, winter storms, tornadoes, flooding and so on. It has the power to charge quickly in just 2 hours so that lots of equipment can be used throughout the day and have a full battery when the sun goes down.
This makes it easy to run lots of equipment such as a refrigerator, fans, tv, and lights plus much more. Because it is making 1,000 watts of energy per hour it makes it very easy to run more equipment such as a freezer, computers, electric cooktops, power tools, food dehydrator, food processor and so on.
This is the ideal kit for emergency preparedness because of how fast it charges. Since the large Titan battery is 2,000 watts and the solar panels are making 1,000 watts per hour it will charge in essentially 2 hours. Since there are 5 hours a day where 1,000 watts of power can be made from the panels per hour, this makes it very easy to run heavy equipment and still be charged up by the night.
In this diagram, there is a series/parallel connection. This means that the panels are connected to each other in series of 5. There are 2 arrays of panels which are then connected in parallel. This makes it possible to make more power while keeping the volts and amps lower so that it is easy to make lots of power and plug into a single charging port on the Titan.
Note: The solar panels, cables, and extra accessories are not sourced from Point Zero Energy directly. The Titan, Titan batteries, panel adapters, and other small accessories are sourced from Point Zero Energy.

Both my husband and I are very satisfied with this kit. It seems to be just right for us.
The Titan works amazing for us but I was very surprised at how hot the wall charger got. Because it has a built in fan I thought it wouldn't get very warm but it definitely gets warm. I called Ben and asked him about it and he said that's very normal for chargers to get hot. He recommended that next time I don't put the wall charger on the carpet floor while charging the Titan. So I tried that the next time and it wasn't as hot but still pretty warm. Either way it works without any issues and we like it a lot.
I got this kit because it was just a little bit more affordable than the flexible panel option. I don't need a lot of portability as Ben talks about so I went with this one. When it all arrived the boxes were a bit heavy but now that I have everything together it really is not that bad to move around. I have to disconnect the battery from the top if I need to move it but doing that makes it pretty easy to move around. I thought the solar panels would've weighed more and been harder to move around but they are pretty easy to setup and take down.
