1. Best Portable Solar Generators Of 2019
The reality and need for a portable solar generator cannot be underestimated – natural events and Acts of God such as the Hurricane Irma have seen to this.
During such natural challenges, power from the grid is not something to be relied upon – as the disaster often renders this unreliable, sketchy and in some instances, plain non-existent!
Sadly, during such instances (as the hurricane mentioned above), gasoline and engine oil are things that one cannot reliably source; so gasoline generators are completely ruled out.
Sadly, gadgets must be powered, work must be done and for the vulnerable and super sensitive, they must also be kept cool.
It is in such dire circumstances (and such circumstances that take a man outside the realm of civilized society and the grid) that we all turn to solar generators, especially the portable variant – afterall, the sun, in all these challenges (or places where the grid has not penetrated), never fails.
It is in light of this that I took out time to personally test the array of portable solar generators currently available today so that I see first-hand, the options available today and offer my professional recommendations.
I tested about 30 of these generators and at a point, I was getting overwhelmed!
Many of the generators were outright trash; some were fair and manageable but to my greatest surprise, only a few were badass and worthy of my recommendation here.
These bad boys were only 4 in number and in this entry, I mention them and detail what to expect when you opt for anyone of them.
It is also worth noting that, these generators are chosen across size, weight, power and price point. You will thus find options for every load type, every work type and importantly, every budget.
If you are interested in the best options 2019 offers by means of these portable solar generators, this entry is expressly for you: Best Portable Solar Generators Of 2019.
2. Do Solar Powered Generators Work?
As with all things tech, there is always the ‘doubting phase’; a phase where the majority of the population is not sure if such a piece of technology will stand the test of time or even work out.
During this phase, all kinds of doubts present themselves and it is during this phase that all manner of criticisms of a product or piece of tech come to the fore.
Curiously enough too, it is during this phase that the worth or otherwise of a new invention comes to the fore.
The portable solar generator is no exception.
Accordingly, for the most time, I keep receiving emails – all asking (in varying tones) whether solar powered generators actually work.
For the most time, I reply these queries. However, I’m sure to have a really good laugh in place before attempting such a reply.
Sometimes, it bothers me that people would allow themselves to be doubtful of technology that has already, in my opinion, proved itself over and over.
Then, I caution myself and understand that this is the professional in me speaking. Many of my readers here are not professionals. As a matter of fact, they are everyday, hardworking folks who are interested in making something for themselves in life and would appreciate the power and versatility a smart, portable power station ensures, if its reality is true, that is.
With the enormity of disasters plaguing the world – both man made and natural, I had no choice but to properly address this all important question in an entry once and for all.
So, if you have ever asked the billion dollar question of whether or not solar powered power stations work, you have your answer today.
