Balcony power plant from Anker: Solix should reduce your electricity costs
With Solix, Anker is now offering its own balcony power plant including all accessories. There are two versions to choose from. We reveal whether the purchase is worthwhile.
If you live for rent, it is not so easy to install a solar system on the roof. Balcony power plants are an alternative here. Provided the landlord cooperates, these can be installed by the user themselves and then feed electricity into the house network via a socket. The manufacturer Anker, known for its mobile phone accessories and power stations, now offers you such a model with Solix in its in-house online shop.

The manufacturer promises delivery to the apartment door, including all the necessary accessories and things needed for assembly. Solix is available in two versions. The standard package Anker Solix RS40 for 989 euros includes two photovoltaic modules in the usual silver stripe design, each with 415 watts (together 830 watts) and an efficiency of 21.3 percent.
With the premium version Solix RS40P for 1,389 euros, the panels appear completely black depending on the viewing angle and have a higher efficiency of 22.7 percent.
Are the high acquisition costs worth it?
In comparison, the anchor solution costs almost twice as much as other balcony power plants. Therefore, you should definitely check before you buy whether the purchase is worthwhile for you at all.
Balcony power plant: You have to consider this when buying
Small photovoltaic systems
With a balcony power plant, also known as a plug-in solar device or plug-in photovoltaic system, you can easily feed solar power into your home network. You have to take that into account.
Anker offers a cost calculator on its website that reveals when Solix will pay for itself. You can also check whether Solix even fits on your balcony. You must also obtain permission from your landlord before purchasing.
Instead of attaching Solix to the balcony, you can alternatively set it up in the garden. Incidentally, the panels are protected against water with IP67, so they can also stay outside in the rain.
In addition to Solix, Anker also has a real world first in its range with the Mach V1 Ultra. It is the first wet and dry vacuum cleaner with a steam self-cleaning function.
