Using Nature’s Power with a Solar Powered Portable Generator
A Portable Solar Generator is a wise and practical choice for remote areas, emergencies, camping, cottages and country homes.
Despite what most people may think, Installing a portable solar energy unit is a relatively simple process, with most systems offering an uncomplicated plug and play install. In some cases you’ll just need to plug the panel into a Battery Box.
However, installations and hook-ups do vary depending upon the size, design and style. Solar isn’t like the simpler invention of Nikola Tesla that we hear so much about yet understand so little of, but rather the accepted mainstream alternate energy choice.
Solar powered generators also come in smaller bundles and can be used to supply power to notebook computers, satellite telephones, and even electric tools. Below you’ll find a variety of popular solar options to choose from.
Wagan Solar e Cube 1500 – This is a handy unit! There’s no assembly required either; it’s ready to use right out of the boss. You can also expand it if you need to, with extra solar panels and/or batteries. Each solar panel is 16 watts each and they unfold then slide out from the unit itself. There are two outlets to power appliances like your radio, computer, tv, or a standard fridge and freezer. There’s also 2 USB power ports where you can charge electronic devices if you need too. The portability and easy to use aspect of this device makes it very appealing. Take it camping if you need too or just take it anywhere you feel there’s a risk of losing power. The handle makes it easy to port as well – almost like luggage on wheels.
