Winter Emergency Power
Ice Storms Often Cause Power Outages
Ice Storms often leave more than ice behind. Included in this list are power outages and difficult conditions to work in. Power is sometimes slow in being restored. Fortunately Xantrex has come out with a power product carried at www.4lots.com. The xPower 1500 is a safe efficient portable power unit. It can be run indoors to provide up to 1500 watts of power. The unit is designed to be charged and rolled out when needed. The beauty behind the xPower 1500 is it ability to be charged in your house, in your car, or even by a solar panel. The xPower 1500 will run a 13” color TV for eight hours. It won’t run you household Air Conditioner, but it may help keep your freezer frozen. The xPower 1500 is also a quiet unit, almost silent when running. It includes battery indicator lights and 2 - 110 volt outlets. For added power it has a 12 volt accessory plug that can be used to charge your cell phone using a car charger.
There are also two post on the back of the xPower 1500 to allow jumper cables to connect to an additional battery to increase run times. Since the unit is on wheels and is really easy to move there is no reason not to have an xPower 1500 in your Winter emergency preparedness kit.
