A lot of research and customer feedback goes into finding new products at 4Patriots. Our products must be high-quality, easy to use, affordable and help our customers become more self-reliant and prepared.
We determined that what our customers wanted most from us was a home generator. With so many threats to our aging power grid, hurricane or other threats to our power, that made a lot of sense, but we wanted to make sure it had all the features you wanted before we offered it.
First of all, we wanted to make sure it would be solar-powered, just in case the grid were to go down. And we wanted it to be portable because you might need to grab it and go, whether it’s from room to room in your home, or in your vehicle from site to site.
We wanted to make sure it would power most needed devices in an emergency, and that it did not use any gas or make noise, so that it would be safe and quiet for the indoors.
And just as important as everything else, we wanted to make sure it was affordable. A whole-home solution can run up to $100,000, so that was out of the question.
The Patriot Power Generator fulfills all of these promises, and more.
Our Patriot Power Generator is:
-Assembly-free. Just unpack and plug in!
– Safe to use indoors. It is fume-free, safe, quiet and portable. It is light enough to move from your bedroom to kitchen.
-Small enough so that you could discreetly move it and store it, yet powerful enough to charge several devices at once.
-Able to charge indoors and out in 3.5 hours or less. With the solar panels you can charge your unit outdoors, or use the outlet plug for indoor charging.
-Engineered to hold a charge in storage up to a year.
So, now you have some good information about our solar-powered generator. But you may still have some questions about it.
Below you will see some of the most commonly asked questions we get about the Patriot Power Generator. Perhaps your question is among them.
Q. What does the Patriot Power Generator charge?
A. Lighting, refrigerators, power phones, laptops and almost any device that you can plug into a normal wall outlet. The battery holds 600 watts and you may plug in items up to 1,500 watts. Here is a great video that shows examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mATu6zOGD60
Q. What about medical devices?
A. This will depend on the item. We recommend asking one of our customer service representatives, as they will be able to assist in figuring out how much power can be run for how long.
Q. Can this power my travel trailer?
A. Absolutely! Most campers have a power cord. You will need to get an adapter to change the plug from the camper version to a standard household plug, which will go into the generator. This will power your camper, but we do not recommend using it for your AC units.
Q. How does it recharge?
A. You can recharge it via solar panels using the sun, or our charging plug that will work with any standard wall outlet. You can also daisy-chain together multiple panels, to speed up the charging time outdoors.
Q. Can I charge this indoors?
A. Unfortunately, your generator will not charge indoors via the sun, as most windows in homes and apartments have UV treatments on them. The PPG needs UV light in order to charge the unit but you can choose to charge via the wall outlet indoors.
Q. How much does it weigh?
A. Forty pounds, compared to other solar-powered models that run over 100 pounds, or gas-generated ones that can leak, produce fumes or be used only outdoors.
