SolarBriefcase - (Out of stock - Replacement coming soon)
Portable Power Supply! Made in USA
This nifty, self-contained device allows you to take solar power wherever you go - our most portable solar generator.
See below under Resources - "What can it power...and for how long?"
Designed and assembled by good folks in North Carolina, using heavy-duty, high-quality, 18 amp/hour batteries that recharge via built-in solar panel. Your SolarBriefcase can also be topped off, or fully charged from a conventional AC outlet.
Use it to charge your cell phone, operate your laptop, power a radio, lights, or power tools in an emergency power outage, or when conventional power is not available - such as camping, job site, or remote building.
During the great February ice storm in eastern PA, our office was without power for three days. Bill Finch used the SolarBriefcase to run his laptop and charge cell phones. And the on-board LED light was on for five hours - with power to spare!

Power outputs for 120 volts AC, 12 volts DC and USB make it easy to charge and use many common electrical and electronic devices. The built in 3 watt LED light is super bright and lights up a room or campsite. We also include a sleep timer - to automatically turn power off or on. Programmable mode allows many tasks to automatically happen at dusk, like turning on the LED light or any other plugged in device.
To help conserve power, the LCD screen shows exactly how much power is being used and the condition of the batteries. This screen will help when charging using the solar panel - as it displays how much power is going into the batteries.
SolarBriefcase is constructed with the highest quality components we could find. Designed and tested to provide reliable power in an emergency, or anywhere power is not readily available. This power source can be depended upon when it’s critical to survival.
SolarBriefcase is a survival tool than can be invaluable when safety and communications are critical. In non-emergency situations, use it to power things like a computer, iPod speaker system, or cash register. The master battery cut off switch ensures long battery life and safe storage.
Uses: home, office, outbuildings, outdoor events, job site - or in remote locations like a bunker, or survival camp. To be clear, it will not power your entire home, or run your electric clothes dryer during a power outage. We have been asked such questions. If you are in a power down situation, you will have more important things to consider.
