20-Pound Solar Generator Produces 1100 Watts Of Usable Power!

Friday, December 18, 2015

An off grid solar system sounds like a great prepping addition to the conventional noisy generator that uses fuel. For disaster preparedness, an off-grid solar generator would come very handy indeed, especially since fuel supply would certainly be limited during a SHTF, WROL, or TEOTWAWKI event.

Scouting around I've come across a solar system that is launching to market and sounds very promising. It's called Kodiak and it's fundamentally a small digital-controlled solar system that consists of a solar generator and solar panels that store power inside a lithium-ion battery bank. The Kodiak is essentially a home solar system compacted down into a really powerful and lightweight solar power solution that allows you to run major home appliances as well as other devices that you would need to run during a power outage or disaster situation.

One of these solar panels weighs only 4 pounds, generates 50 watts of electricity per hour, and has interlocking edges that allow you to connect it to additional solar panels for faster charging. The solar panels themselves are waterproof, shatterproof and semi-flexible, which is great because the last thing you would want during a power outage is your solar panel shattering by a wind or dust storm!








One great feature of the Kodiak solar power solution, aside from being able to use it while charging, is that it can also be charged via a car charger or wall mains.The Kodiak generator has 1,500 Watt Pure Sine Wave AC Inverter built into it that produces a maximum output of 3,000 Watts. The lifespan of the Kodiak battery is 2,000 cycles (10 years) and the battery will hold its charge for about 3 months.

If you live in a hurricane prone country or go camping or RVing alot, the Kodiak sounds like a good solution in case you run out of gas on the generator and need to run the fridge/freezer, lights, etc. Even if you're not much of an outdoors person, you could always use a solar generator system such as the Kodiak to cut down on electricity bills, which is always a plus!
