Power stations

Portable power stations and solar generators have become increasingly popular as more people seek alternative power sources for outdoor activities or emergencies. These devices are essentially battery packs with built-in inverters, which can convert the DC power from a battery to AC power that can be used to run electronic devices. Most power stations also have an integrated MPPT solar charge controller.

Solar generators are portable power stations that use solar panels to charge the battery. The panels can be either built-in or external, and they can generate power even when the device is being used. This makes them ideal for camping, outdoor activities, and emergency situations when access to traditional power sources may be limited.

Most portable power stations and solar generators come with a variety of output ports, including AC outlets, USB ports, and DC ports. Make sure to choose a device with the right port combination to meet your needs. These devices are perfect for charging your drone’s LIPO battery right on the field.
