Tacklife Portable Power Station | $150 | Amazon | Promo Code FO5YH4MC
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. From Kinja Deals reader-favorite brand Tacklife, this one is solar-powered and boasts a 300 watt-hour battery capacity. Measuring 14" x 9" x 7" and weighing 9.57 pounds in the box, 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 Portable Power Station packs a real punch, capable of charging 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 $65 using the promo code FO5YH4MC. As the weather grows colder, you might want to jump on this deal before it spikes back up to its full $215 list price. You’ve got until Friday night to secure a backup plan for any upcoming outdoor expeditions or blizzard-induced power outages bound to arise in the coming months.
