Why you need one
The benefits to owning a portable power pack are numerous, but there are a few main undisputable advantages to having your own personal power supply wherever you go: Instant Power When You Need it Most: During a cyclone, blackout or out in the bush, being able to connect instantly to a power supply for lighting or to charge your mobile phone for calling loved ones delivers a peace of mind and a reprieve from feeling cut off from the outside world.
Easy to use: The Solarpod 240 Solar Generator is remarkably simple to operate, only needing to be plugged in and then it’s ready to go. Even if you’re not very skilled with technology, you’ll have no trouble at all using it and keeping all your devices connected. It’s also very light and compact and designed for portability, so it’s easy to transport and take with you when you’re on the move.
Adaptable Charging: Its flexibility means you can use it to charge any electronic device or appliance, as it has sockets and ports that are compatible with every sort of device. Whether you need a USB port for your smartphone or an AC plug for your laptop or camp fridge, recharging will always be a breeze.
Durable: Take your portable power pack wherever you go, whether it is to the severe heat of the outback, an unstable camping environment or just to the office. Its sturdy and durable nature ensures it will last through harsh weather conditions and always be operating efficiently and reliably to keep you well connected over its long life.
Good for the environment:Solar power is a completely environmentally friendly source of energy compared to more conventional energy sources such as fuel powered generators. It does not contribute to pollution or greenhouse gases, and has no harmful toxins or chemicals. The portable power pack also gets rid of the need to keep buying replacement batteries for your devices, and its rechargeable nature means it doesn’t need any replacement batteries for itself. Batteries contribute a large amount of pollution and toxic waste to the environment when they are disposed of because of the chemicals that they are made up of, and reducing the need for them is a huge advantage to the environment and wildlife.
Maintain your portable power pack
The Solarpod 240 Solar Generator is very easy to care for and maintain. Simply dust it regularly with a clean dry cloth to prevent dirt and dust from building up in the vents, inputs and outputs. Keep it stored in clean and dry place when you are not using it, so moisture cannot get inside. And it is recommended that you recharge your power pack after each time you use it (or every 1-2 months) for better power efficiency and a longer life.
