Power when there isn't any
The great thing about getting a portable power station battery charger is that you can use it wherever you want. The ElecHive can provide a 2200W power output, just like a standard wall outlet! And it packs a massive 2,500Wh of capacity, which means all your devices will stay powered for hours and hours, so you will never be stranded without power.
As we mentioned in an earlier blog, watt-hour = watt x hour/day. It measured how much electricity a portable power station can store in watt-hours (Wh). Your smartphone recommends Watt is 20W, and you will need to charge it for 4 hours, 20W*4H = 80WH/day.
Losing utilities like electricity in your home can cause inconvenience. Such as with a natural disaster, or even worse, a situation that affects those with medical needs. Also, when you go camping and you want to live a great off-grid life, this is the choice you make to enhance your outdoor experience. It's something you could do without, but would be better off with.
Power where you want
The balance between weight and capacity has reached the point where you can pick up a power station that can power a mini cooler for 27 hours. Smaller sizes that you can carry around with you on a daily basis to power your phone and headphones. Bigger ones can power large appliances and power tools for hours.
The ElecHive has a 30 percent weight reduction compared to other brands' power stations that with similar capacity and weighs only 40 pounds. And it is only size 12.9*9.6*11.3 inches. However, with its 2500WH capacity, you can charge a ZERO BREEZE Mark 2 air conditioner for 10-20 hours, a smartphone for 208 recharges, and a 4.5W lamp for 555 hours. There is a lot more you can do with this little guy.

Noise is one of the fundamental problems with using a generator, and people complain if you use one near them. Since portable power stations do not make as much noise as gas generators, you can always have them around without disturbing the people in the area. They are generally not against any of the national park's rules and are a good item to carry around and provide a decent amount of electricity.
