As inflation and energy prices rise, more and more people are looking into solar as a source of free power.

One way people are taking advantage of solar is with solar generators.

Archimedes famously said “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.”

Solar is like that, you can run anything if you have a big enough system. But it can be hard to estimate how big that system needs to be when it comes to solar, and that’s where we come in. Here’s what you need to know about running your vacuum pump with a solar generator.

Yes, as an example the Robinair 0.25 vacuum pump draws 0.25 watts of power per hour of use. This means a larger solar generator like the Jackery 2000 can power it for 8 hours and 38 minutes on a full charge. Use our calculator on this page to estimate more or different devices.

To answer that question concisely we had to make a lot of assumptions. We chose the Robinair vacuum pump because it’s a common model. This also assumes that the generator is not running anything else simultaneously.

Other devices will have different energy consumption characteristics, but this gives you a good idea.

How Long Can a Solar Generator Power My Vacuum Pump?

This really depends on which solar generator you have, but as noted, a larger unit like the Jackery 2000 can power it for 8 hours and 38 minutes on a full charge.

Use the calculator on this page to estimate which Jackery model is suitable for the devices you enter.

Assuming we stick with the Robinair vacuum pump as an example, below are the answers for several different models of Jackery solar generators. They are listed from larger to smaller capacity so you can see how they vary.
