The Ultimate Portable Solar Powered AC/DC Generator


GetdatGadget loves the Earth and we have featured quite a few solar powered chargers and devices. However, these are all low powered devices but when saving the world, every little bit counts. To go big time, you need something like the Wagan Solar ePower Cube 1500.

The Wagan Solar ePower Cube 1500 is a full sized 1500W power inverter to provide your electrical power needs in an emergency or when you are on the road. It can even be used to jump start your vehicle if necessary. Unlike normal power generators, it generates no noise or polluting fumes. All power comes from the built-in 55 Ah Gel/AGM hybrid battery. The battery itself can be charged using a variety of methods.

Firstly, it can be charged using an AC outlet. Secondly, it can also be charged via a vehicle’s 12V DC outlet and lastly, but most importantly, it can be charged using the 5 built-in 16W solar panels. It takes 18 hours of direct sunlight to fully charge the battery using the solar panels only.

For power outlet options, the Wagan Solar ePower Cube 1500 has gotten that well covered. There are two 115V outlets, two 12V DC outlets and two USB power ports (5V 2.1A total). The ePower Cube’s continuous AC output power capacity is 1500 watts with 3600 watts peak surge.

The ePower Cube requires no assembly at all and is ready to use once fully charged. All the solar panels are compactly stored within the Power Cube itself. It can be easily transported by extending the included handle and carting it away like a trolley bag as it has built-in wheels as well.

With a single full charge, the Wagan Solar ePower Cube 1500 can power a flat screen TV for 6.5 hours, a laptop computer for 16 hours or a cell phone for a whopping 110 hours.

If that is not enough for you, you can add on to the ePower Cube’s capabilities by adding additional solar panels and batteries.
