Tenergy 300W Power Station | $200 | Amazon
Gasoline generators have their place—of course they do—but for so much of what we end up using them for, there’s a lighter-weight, lower-hassle, more environmentally-friendly option: the humble electric power station, like this Tenergy 300W portable power station. Essentially just a big hunk of lithium ion in a friendly plastic case, this power station gives you easy access to electricity that you can bring with you anywhere, or just use in a brief power outage to keep your phones and computer juiced up, or plug a lamp into. Sound appealing? Of course it does. On the Tenergy power station’s front, you’ll find a digital display, two 110V 3-prong AC outlets with a max continuous output of 200W, a USB-C PD 45W power port, two USB-A 5V outlets, and even a 12V, 10A DC outlet. It has a nice, chunky handle on top for easy cripping, and the whole thing weighs just 8lbs, making it an excellent travel companion—better and less noisy and fraught than lugging around a 100lb generator, and you needn’t use the juice on your car or run an extension cable to the one power outlet at your campsite (if there even is one).
This power station is normally $250, and it looks like this may be its first time at this limited time sale price—be sure to act fast to take advantage of this $50 discount!
