Tacklife Portable Power Station | $180 | Amazon | Promo code J9KXB2PW
Whether you’re outdoors camping, or your power is out at home, a portable generator comes in handy for recreational activities and emergency situations alike. This one from Kinja Deals reader-favorite brand is solar-powered (panels sold separately) and boasts a 300 watt-hour battery capacity.
Measuring 9.84" x 7.28" x 6.89" and weighing 10.28 pounds, its size is comparable to an industry-grade rugged laptop—compact enough to take on a trip, even in the trunk of a small sedan, but don’t count on fitting it in your pocket. Still, considering its diminutive dimensions, the Tacklife Portable Power Station packs a real punch, laying claim to powering a smartphone more than 27 times, a laptop (or refrigerator!) for 6 hours, a 45-watt CPAP for 9 hours, and a car vac for 2.5 consecutive hours.
The generator includes the required three Lithium-ion batteries needed to operate the device, and for a limited time only is discounted $97 to just $180 using the promo code J9KXB2PW. You might want to jump on this deal before it spikes back up to its full $277 list price on Monday.
