Portable generators rule, but in some situations they aren’t the ideal power source. For example, you can’t use your noisy, messy, and fume-spewing gas generator indoors. That’s when you need a battery-powered solution like Xantrex’s XPower Powerpack 1500.
This portable power system pumps out up to 1500 watts through two standard 120V AC outlets or through a 12V DC jack. With the provided accessories, you can recharge the XPower Powerpack 1500 from your wall outlet in about 15 hours, from your vehicle in about 8 hours, or from a solar panel in about 6 years.
Xantrex packs a battery pack, inverter, and power panel into a rugged, 60 lb, 14.8″ x 15.6″ x 12.3″ cart, which can be wheeled indoors and out. You can pick up the XPower Powerpack 1500 for about $250 to $300.
