Introducing the all-powerful, industry revolutionizing, and mind-blowing Hysolis Apollo. Truly, we have never seen a solar generator or power station like this one before. Similarly, to how the Titan revolutionized the solar generator industry, the Apollo is now doing it too.
If you’re looking for a super-powerful, do anything, go-anywhere type of solar generator, this is it.
The Greek God Apollo was capable of protecting people from evil, healing people from disease and illness could see the future, and was extremely powerful in battle. The name for this solar generator is very appropriately given.
A big disclaimer up front, this article has not been sponsored in any way, shape or form. And also, as another disclaimer, this product will not be available for delivery until November 1, 2022. There will be a pre-order for 500 units only. If you go through this article and feel this is the system for you, then do not hesitate to grab it because you do not want to be kept waiting for this one.
For a quick view of the Hysolis Apollo, it will have a 3,000w inverter, 5,376wh internal removable battery, 4,000w of solar charging capability, 6,500 cycles on the LiFePo4 battery, 240v capable, extremely expandable, and an AC input charge speed that is programable up to 3,000w! This shouldn’t have been named the Apollo, it should’ve been named “The Beast!”
And the price, it’s extremely good for everything included, read through the see all the info.
What Will it Run?
The Hysolis Apollo will quite literally be capable of running anything, as long as you build it to the necessary size. The vast majority of people have found that a 3,000w inverter is plenty strong enough to run their equipment, and that is why the Apollo has a 3,000w pure sine wave inverter with a 6,000w peak. That is for 120v power only, but the Apollo can attach two units together to make 240v power and have a 6,000w inverter continuous output rating and 12,000w peak.
Not only that, but the inverter efficiency rating is 94% which is unheard of. A good quality inverter has 85-90% efficiency. This means that you get nearly 100% of all the battery capacity to use. Many other brands like the Jackery, Pecron, Inergy, and others have inverters with even lower efficiency ratings.
But that’s not even the most impressive part. The EcoFlow Delta Pro has a 3,600w inverter and can put two Delta Pro units together to make 7,200w of output power in 240v. The Apollo can do much more. It has the unique ability to attach up to nice Apollo units together. With nine units it will still be making 240v power but have the output capacity of 27,000 watts of continuous power and 54,000 watts of peak output power.
No other system has been able to connect more than two units together to have superior output capacity. This is literally fully capable of running an entire house without any issues.
For AC power outlets it has six 120v house style outlets (NEMA 5-15) and can push out up to 25a (3,000w) between them all. A single plug will max out at 15 amps which is normal. It also has one 30a style RV plug (TT-30R) that will output up to 25a (120v x 25a = 3,000w).
For 12v DC power outlets, there is one cigarette lighter style plug rated to 15a. There are three USB A fast-charging outlets and one USB C PD60w port. The Apollo includes two 5521 barrel ports. But one DC plug that is not common on other solar generators is the 30a output plug to run heavy equipment like HAM radios and other vital DC equipment.
The Apollo doesn’t mind if you’re running just a fridge, freezer, lights, fans, and kitchen appliances or if you want to run a well pump, electric dryer, central air conditioner, welder, and everything else. If you want to run those things, you just have to build the system big enough to do it.
But how long will it run your equipment?
How Much Battery Storage?
The Apollo has an internal battery made from rectangular LiFePo4 cells connected to make 51v, which are considered the highest quality of all the different lithium battery types and styles. Other systems like the Bluetti AC300 and Bluetti EP500 use cylindrical LiFePo4 cells which are definitely good, but rectangular cells are better.
The Apollos internal battery is 5,376wh of capacity. With 94% inverter efficiency you’ll be able to get 5,050wh of total output for running AC-powered equipment (anything that uses a normal house-style wall outlet).
The Apollo internal battery can be easily removed by the end-user with just a screwdriver. This is great in case the battery needs to be replaced many years down the road from now. It is also a huge advantage if the unit ever does have to get shipped back for warranty work the battery can be removed to greatly reduce the weight for shipping and ease of transportation. The internal battery is about 60lbs and each external battery is about 65lbs.
As mentioned at the beginning, the Apollo is extremely expandable. Not only can up to nine Apollos be connected together to make excessive power, but each Apollo unit can also have up to eight batteries attached to it. Each Apollo can have a maximum of 48,348wh of the battery all connected together. That’s the main internal battery plus eight external batteries for over 48kwh of battery.
At my home, which uses propane for everything heat-related, my entire family and extended family together use an average of 20kwh per day. Maxing out the batteries on just one Apollo would give us 2.5 days of non-stop power. That’s incredible.
I will have at minimum two Apollos to make 240v power for my house which means I can have up to 96,696wh of battery. If maxed out that would give me 5 days of non-stop normal power usage. That’s without using solar panels.
If someone decided to put nine Apollos together with each one maxed out with batteries, the total battery capacity would be 435,132wh. I doubt anyone will ever do that but that’s enough power to run my house just like normal for over 21 days non-stop.
All of those numbers are based on my average daily use, not emergency essential power use, which is 10,000wh at a max per day.
The Apollo expansion batteries all link together with a heavy-duty cable and can all be stacked together in one stack can be in two stacks or all side by side. This gives so much flexibility with where it can go. Especially when using the Apollo in an RV it’ll be very easy to store the main unit and batteries in different configurations.
But with all of that battery capacity, how can they all be recharged?
Does it Recharge Quickly?
The Apollo so far has not ceased to amaze us. Will the recharge capability let us down? Definitely not.
The Apollo solar generator has a built-in MPPT charge controller capable of charging up to 4,000w of solar to recharge the batteries! The biggest solar charger of any solar generator so far has been the Titan with 2,000w of solar input. The Apollo is now doubling that.
The MPPT charge parameter is 120-500v and 80a. That highest voltage solar input of any other system has been the EcoFlow Delta Pro with a max solar input of 150v and the Apollo demolishes that. The only tricky part with the Apollo is getting at least 120v connected. That is perfectly fine since no one will realistically connect just 500w of solar to this unit. At the minimum, it will recommend having no less than 1,000w of solar panels connected to it.
With such a large charge parameter the Apollo will be able to charge with any solar panel out there and be configurable in many different ways to charge quickly and efficiently. Also, it will be easy to over-panel the system if someone wants to do that, but likely not. Keep reading to see why.
Volts are easy to send over long distances, amps are not. By having such a high voltage range, it will allow people to connect up to two dozen or so solar panels directly to each other making it very easy to set up the solar panels.
With 4,000w of solar input, it is possible to get up to 20,000wh of battery recharged per Apollo each day since there are an average of five solar peak hours per day. Does this mean the Apollo can only charge itself and up to three external batteries? Nope, they thought of that issue too.
Each expansion can have its own MPPT charge controller attached to it. Each battery can have up to 2,400w of solar panels recharging it in addition to the main solar charge controller inside the Apollo. A single Apollo with one extra battery can have up to 6,400w of solar recharging it. Again, this is incredible!
This makes the Apollo the most expandable solar generator ever created. It won’t matter if a new solar generator comes out in a few years with cooler features, because the Apollo will last decades of full-time operation since each battery has 6,500 cycles.
It can charge from a wall charger as well and the wall charging speed is programmable all the way up to 3,000w. Wall charging and solar charging can also be done together at the same time. This would also be applicable when there is no grid power and it’s very cloudy. You can use a gas generator to recharge the entire system quickly along with the solar panels.
How Do Other Units Compare?
There are multiple solar generators that have some similarities but let’s define these in one easy-to-see comparison. The comparisons listed below will be based on 240v configurations, meaning two units.
Inverter: Apollo 6,000w | Delta Pro 7,200w | AC300 6,000w
Base Battery Capacity: Apollo 10,744wh | Delta Pro 7,200wh | AC300 6,144wh
Max Expanded Battery Capacity: Apollo 96,696wh | Delta Pro 21,800wh | AC300 24,576wh
Base Solar Input: Apollo 4,000w | Delta Pro 3,200w | AC300 4,800w
Max Expanded Solar Input: Apollo 46,400w | Delta Pro 3,200w | AC300 4,800w
Price (2 units): Apollo $9,390 | Delta Pro $7,198 | $7,398
Price per Unit Wattage: Apollo $1.20/w | Delta Pro: $1.42/w | $1.33/w
As you can see with how these different specs stack up against each other that the Hsyolis Apollo is the best bang for the buck. Once everything is factored in from the inverter capacity, battery capacity, solar input capacity, and the expandability of each unit, the Hysolis Apollo wins by quite a bit.
As we can tell from this review, the Hysolis Apollo is an extremely powerful system. It is unrivaled in terms of power output, input, and expandability. It is very well priced for everything that is included. The Apollo can literally run an entire house, RV, cabin, van, or anything along those lines just by building it up to meet your needs.
One neat feature is that the screen is removable from the Apollo. It can reach up to 60ft away from the main unit and still read out what’s going on. It has a simple yet beautiful looking screen. The Delta Pro has a wireless screen that can be added for an additional $99 but the Apollo’s screen is already wireless, for no extra fee.
The Apollo will also have a phone app so that you can leave the screen on the main unit and monitor everything through your phone easily.
All of the standard safety features are included such as short circuit protection, high voltage protection, and low voltage protection and can even be used as a UPS (uninterrupted power supply) so it will continue to run all your equipment immediately after the power goes out.
The inverter size is just right, the battery is huge, and the solar input is unmatched anywhere. It even has an eco-mode to save even more energy.
The customer service with Hysolis has been top-notch. Having spoken directly with the owner of the Hysolis, he said they are actively looking for more support staff members, here in the USA, so that when someone calls in, they can speak to someone who knows exactly what they’re talking about. Fingers crossed they keep up with customer service because it has been so great.
Obviously, the weight is a big concern for the Hysolis Apollo. Each battery is 65lbs which is definitely on the heavy side, but it doesn’t even come close to the Delta Pro expansion battery at 84lbs. The Bluetti AC300s battery is 80lbs. And the Apollo batteries have far more energy packed into them than the other brands.
That’s pretty much it, no other cons. The Apollo will have a rolling cart just for it to make it easy to move it across flat surfaces. The only difficulty will be getting it out of the box and going up/down stairs.
I don’t know of any other system that has the matched capability of the Hysolis Apollo as you can tell from this review. Since I have personally been in the solar generator industry for many years and have talked with tens of thousands of people about systems, I can tell that the Hysolis Apollo is going to truly change the solar generator world.
I am extremely excited to get my first two Apollos, each with one extra battery. That’ll be how I start off. After that, I will keep expanding it so it continues to meet my needs for my home, cabin, RV, and any other situation that arises.
