I found from personal experience that owning a Portable Solar Generator makes a lot of sense. A portable solar energy source that gives you power at home as well as in your RV when you travel, on outings or in case you have to evacuate is a big relief.
We were having dinner at my house with our neighbors on the thirteenth day after hurricane Ike hit when all of the sudden the power came back on. By then the batteries people had for their flashlights had long run out and replacement batteries were hard to find. As soon as the electricity was restored my neighbor shouted, “Yea, I can go to the bathroom without having to leave the door open!” As soon as she said that she realized what she said and was completely embarrassed. But it was true.
The reason all my neighbors, except one family who left because they couldn’t stand being without power and lights any longer, were eating at my house was because we had power from our portable solar generator we got from www.mysolarbackup.com. Now we didn’t have the whole house lit up and powered but we certainly weren’t having to go to the bathroom in the dark or have to leave the door open.
Because there were so many houses that had tree damage in our neighborhood I was gone most days from the morning to evening helping people remove fallen trees off of their houses. It was a mess. The problem was it left my wife home alone. I thought it was going to be a problem for her to reposition the portable solar panel that is a big part of the solar generator 1800. It turned out it wasn’t an issue at all.
To get the most power out of our solar generator we decided to turn the solar panel every couple of hours so it “followed” the sun. Repositioning it to face directly at the sun really jumped up how many watts it put out. My concern was it would be too heavy or inconvenient for my wife to move around. Moving the portable solar panel was so easy my wife never gave it a second thought. If you have seen the TV commerical you know what I mean.
We did not have to evacuate for the hurricane but we have used our portable solar generator several times since then at several locations. We own a small SUV and have found it very easy to load and unload. It takes just almost no time to setup the entire system when we use it for remote power on trips or events.
We could just take the battery part of the portable generator with us and leave the solar panel and cable at home but we like to keep the battery fully charged all the time. We found out you never know when you are going to need to use it.
I can’t think of a faster or easier setup to have portable power then using our portable solar generator. We have really gotten our money out of it and have only had it a couple of years so far. For every day use or for use in an emergency it is nice knowing we have our portable solar generator we can count on.
