We’re unboxing today a portable indoor power station that can power up your home and outdoor living. The Promate 240 Indoor Power Station with 400W power is your modern electric inverter that is powered by a lead acid battery, it’s a built in- all in one package, its portable, lightweight and you can carry it anytime and anywhere when you go.
Back in the 90’s we use a separate inverter box to connect and convert electricity from a lead acid battery, it was very bulky and hard to maintain because the acid battery always burn and melt the copper clip of our inverter, we charge it everyday and use it whenever there’s a rotating brownout or blackout. Im glad that the Power Asia Pacific Inc. developed a much modern and convenient portable generator that can power our devices anytime and anywhere.
The Promate 240 Indoor Power Station is a more convenient version and also upgraded version of the old inverter, they fused the battery and the inverter into a one rig, it also features power display and a series of sockets for ordinary electric plug, USB and also it can jump start your car.
The Promate 240 Indoor Power Station can charge via electric for 12 hours OR charge it via solar, if you have a solar panel at home.
Promate 240 is best to use to charge and power these devices:
- power banks
- LED light
- electric fan
- camera battery
- charge lithium batteries
- USB devices
This item is available in Ace Hardware stores, Handyman and other hardware shops.
