Battery Generator

Battery Back-Up

One of the hottest items right now is getting a battery generator. Essentially this like a generator but it requires no fuel to operate. You can either charge them manually from an AC outlet or get a solar panel array 9we are using 200 watt) to charge the unit while you are using it. The unit uses lithium batteries for long life. They come in various sizes for different applications.

You can get models that are powerful enough to run appliances in your home during a power outage. The one we use is for mobile repair applications. They come with USB ports built in for charging your phone or tablet. The battery generator is a valuable tool when you are working on a 12 volt system. The model we use has 4 120 V ac outlets. It can run a residential fridge for 6 hours on a single charge. It had no issues running a high wattage heat gun!

Depending on your needs, you can either purchase just the battery generator or you can add the optional solar panel. The unit can be used to charge your car battery. If you combine the units together, you can get enough power to use it to run your house.
If you look at all the items we carry around with us in our trucks, there are so many items that need to be charged on a regular basis. We need a dependable way to charge and maintain all our equipment. This little gem does a lot more than we ever expected.
