Sunshine Simple Solar Generator with a Folding, 200-watt panel
And for a limited time, we currently offer FREE shipping anywhere in the United States (Usually $165). Use it every day to save money on your electrical bill. And it's so light and portable you can even throw it in your car to evacuate. This entire unit, including the folding solar panel, weighs less than 100 pounds. It also has wheels for easy transport. When you receive this unit, you simply take it from the box and plug one cable from the solar panel into the box, and THAT'S IT. You're ready to enjoy free power from the sun.
The generator is small and sleek (about the size of a computer case) and has 5 standard 120-volt electrical outlets, just like the ones in the wall of your home. You can plug devices directly into those outlets, or run an extension cord, with a power strip, to put the electricity wherever it's needed.
Traditional gas generators are noisy, smelly, and can be hard to start. Plus, what happens when you run out of fuel? The Sunshine Simple is quiet. It has no moving parts, and can be charged completely by the sun alone. You can put the panels anywhere the sun shines. This advanced unit, with the large 200-watt panel, can be fully charged by the sun in 1-4 hours, depending on location, orientation, and time of year.
Additionally, the unit comes with a wall plug you can use to charge it up anytime.
IRON CLAD WARRANTY: You're protected! The warranty is for one, full year on parts and labor and 90 days on the battery (the battery can last for years so long as you don't ever let it sit completely dead for a long time). If something goes wrong, just send it back (or whatever parts seem to be the culprits--we'll advise you) and we'll exchange it at no cost, as quickly as possible (excluding obvious abuse or acts of God beyond our control). If something goes wrong after that year, we'll help fix it as low-cost as possible. Regardless of the situation, we want you to be satisfied so you'll tell your friends good things about us and you'll keep coming back.
EXACTLY HOW LONG CAN YOU RUN THINGS?
Of course, this varies, since there are so many different types of products in your house that consume power at a different rate under different circumstances. The first thing we suggest is making sure you have energy efficient products. For example:
A 60-watt incandescent lamp bulb can be switched out with a 7-watt LED light bulb. You get the same output with only 10% of the energy draw. The unit can power big stuff, like a refrigerator, but it's best to put it on a timer or switch so that it's cooled intermittently and does not constantly run. This will greatly extend your available power.
But remember, your unit is constantly charging every day!
This is a rough estimate of average use for various products on one charge:
Cordless Phone (talk)10 hrs., (standby) 125 hours Cell Phone (talk) 10 hrs. (standby) 125 hours Internet Modem 100 hours Inkjet Printer 46 hours of heavy use Clock Radio 100 hours Laptop Computer 20 watts, 38 hours 20" LCD Monitor 52 watts, 8.5 hours Table Lamp 60 watts, 12.5 hours (convert to an LED bulb and it's 100 hours) 13" TV using 38 watts, 16 hours Desktop Computer using 200 watts, 2.8 hours 8.8 Cubic Foot Freezer using 80 watts, 7.5 hours (place on timer or switch to extend) 18 Foot Refrigerator using 120 watts, 3.8 hours (place on timer or switch to extend) Sump Pump at 1/2 HP using 300 watts, 2 hours Microwave using 1000 watts, 19 minutes
Though you can run a 1500 watt heater fan with the generator, and you probably can run an electric heater in emergencies, we do not suggest relying on the basic unit for electric backup power for heating or cooking use. It is better to cook with gas or wood when possible and make far better use of your resources.
