Generators are noisy, emit exhaust fumes, and cannot be used indoors. They also can be unwieldy, and in most situations, they require the storage of extra fuel. Extension cords are inconvenient and unsightly and can trip people or be accidentally unplugged. Cords also reduce voltage if too long, and can even cause short circuits in damp surroundings. In contrast, the Portable Power Package draws on a rechargeable battery to provide integrated, seamless power for virtually any use. It is ideal for indoor use wherever a powered device needs to be used in more than one location and/or where power may not be otherwise available.
Housed in a sealed but fully ventilated steel cabinet (16 x 16 x 12 in.) and competitively priced, the Newcastle Systems Portable Power Package comes standard with an inverter, battery status meter, wire harness, and “smart charger.” It is available with four different battery/inverter/charger configurations—Models PP8, PP12, PP22, and PP25. Weight ranges from 65 to 170 pounds. Run time varies according to use.
