Weighing just 6lbs and measuring 9.1L x 5W x 8.9H inches in size, this is a highly portable unit for a backpack.

The robust eco-friendly and whisper-quiet iGen300s comes from a household name familiar to most, if not all, Americans. It provides you with 300W continuous and 600W peak power from its 296Wh rechargeable lithium-ion battery cell.
Weighing just 6lbs, it’s light weight makes it an ideal companion for camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, and all sorts of outdoor activities. It’s also equally useful to have on hand in the home, both as an emergency backup as well as for use where direct access to utility power is difficult without getting out long and potentially dangerous extension cords.
The iGen300s is a maintenance-free source of independent power, and with power station technology you won’t have any of the problems usually associated with portable generators, such as fuel storage, noise, and dangerous carbon monoxide fumes. The type of power output is Pure Sine Wave, similar to that provided by your utility company and won’t damage electronic components when charging delicate equipment.
While power station output levels cannot be compared with a gas or LPG-powered portable portable generator, it’s these other advantages that make a power station especially suitable for indoor use.
Despite its diminutive size, the iGen300s is a fully featured device that also comes with an LED display to provide you with real-time information about wattage, charging status, and remaining battery life.
There is a wide selection of outlets on the iGen300s, which include three USB ports (USB-C and Quick Charge 3.0), one 12V car cigarette socket, DC outputs, 12V DC input, and two 120V AC household outlets. With these you can charge/power:
A built-in Tri-Mode flashlight provides you with bright light whenever you need it, in your home during an outage, or out on the trail as it gets dark.
Charging the unit is easy, using an AC outlet, your car’s 12V lighter socket, or with an optional eco-friendly solar panel fitted with an 8mm output plug and no more than 19V. Connected to a household outlet the unit charges to 80% in 5 hours, and between 5 and 7 hours using the car adapter or a solar panel.
