Summer is here, and with longer days, it offers the opportunity to take a break from your monotonous routine and spend time outdoors indulging in the activities you enjoy, be it camping, a day at the beach or a picnic in the park. While being outdoors can be enough to recharge you, your gadget friends will surely need some help. A power bank can power your phone or laptop, but if you have lights and small appliances like an electric stove or cooler to power, investing in a portable power station is the way to go. If you’re looking for one, you’re in luck because EcoFlow is offering enticing discounts on a range of power plants for the next Amazon Prime Day Sale.
Think of power plants as supercharged power banks, only that their capacity and capabilities far exceed those of the latter. They offer a variety of input and output ports, including but not limited to USB Type-C, AC/DC outlets, and car ports. Some go even further and have a screen to help you monitor input/output levels and have a companion app for control and monitoring. That’s not all, however. You can even hook some of them up to a solar panel to recharge the battery when you’re outdoors – harvesting green power has never been easier!
Unlike traditional gasoline generators, these power stations run quietly and don’t need to be winterized. As well as being great outdoor companions, they’re also extremely handy during outages and emergencies, with some being able to keep critical gadgets and appliances running for a few days.
EcoFlow offers a range of power stations with varying capacities and output ports, so it shouldn’t be difficult to get something that best suits your needs.
