Xantrex 852-2071 Powerpack Solar

I love the idea of the Xantrex Xpower Powerpack 852-2071 solar battery charger and inverter.  It has two built in AC outlets, a USB port, a digital display, has a 400-watt inverter, and 12 volt DC outlet.  Yours for less than $129 here.  Read on for more details and pictures.

Operate your favorite gadgets anywhere with the Xantrex XPower Powerpack Solar. This portable solar device provides 400 watts of household power to run appliances and electronics. The Powerpack Solar’s solar panel continuously captures, stores, and converts the sun’s energy and extends the runtime of many portable devices. Two AC outlets, a DC socket, and a USB port give you plenty of options for simultaneously operating anything from laptops to cell phones to small TVs.

Quieter and more compact than a generator, this powerful tool adds fun and comfort to your travels.

Portable Power for All Your Electronics
A perfect companion for road trips, vacations, and camping, the Powerpack Solar can simultaneously run multiple devices thanks to its two 120-volt AC outlets, single 12-volt DC outlet, and USB port. The powerful built-in 400-watt inverter and sealed, spill-free 10-amp/hour AGM battery can power anything from a CD player to a 13-inch TV to a laptop to an air compressor. At the same time, the built-in USB port makes it easy to charge digital music players, cell phones, computer peripherals, and more.

A handy three-digit display helps you keep tabs on your Powerpack Solar’s battery power. For those times when you want to conserve your battery, an AC charger is included for charging from a standard wall outlet, and a DC charger is included for charging from a vehicle or RV battery.

For added convenience, the Powerpack Solar runs quietly, making it a great alternative to a generator. Non-slip rubber surrounds protect the Powerpack Solar from bumps and scuffs, and two built-in lamps help you set up the unit when the lights go out or when you’re getting cozy in a tent.

Clean, Green Renewable Solar Power
The XPower Powerpack Solar is the first power pack to incorporate solar power in a compact, portable power source. It’s completely self renewing, which means the five-watt solar panel captures, stores, and converts the sun’s energy, replenishes the XPower Powerpack Solar’s battery, and extends the runtime of many devices by up to 25 percent. An added bonus, the solar panel is detachable, so you can charge the battery and leave the panel in a safe place when you go to the beach or tackle the trail.

The XPower Powerpack Solar is covered by a six-month warranty. It measures 15.0 x 4.5 x 10.25 inches (LxWxH) and weighs 12.3 pounds.

    let all be fine and well,

    i like the look and function of this product. first, the detachable solar panel must mean you can hook it up to a larger one, very nice. or perhaps you can hook up another panel with the dc outlet.

    2 ac one input, one output?

    specs for the panel?

    We just blew up a 1500 in our garage, so hopefully this will answer why. BTW, it doesn’t explode or anything when it blows, thank god for the casing.
