You may not be able to predict when your home could lose power in a disaster, but you can certainly be prepared for it. Whether it’s a sudden storm or a poorly timed blackout, you can keep your own power source on standby with the Generark Solar Generator.
This portable solar-powered generator can run your electronics, small appliances, and medical devices for up to seven days on a single charge, and during this July Fourth sale, it’s only $1199.20 (down from $1897) with code JULY20 on purchases of $100 or more.
After Hurricane Sandy, it took around 13 days for power to be restored to 95% of residents in New York. That’s a long time without your phone, medical devices, and a hot meal. The Generark is a compact generator that only relies on the sun to recharge, though it can also get power from your car or an AC outlet.
With this little generator, you get three AC outlets, two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, and a car outlet. That’s enough to plug in some small appliances for cooking, your phone to stay connected, and a few other amenities that can keep you comfortable while power is restored.
You also aren’t limited to using the Generark in a disaster. It has a handle designed for easy transport, and even the SolarPower ONE Solar Panel folds up for quick transport. It only takes 30 seconds to set up the solar panel and the monocrystalline solar cell is up to 50% more efficient than its polycrystalline cousins and can help keep you with power even when you’re off the grid. Take it camping, or it could be the star at your next tailgate.
