Furrion Trekker™ Portable Power Station
Going without your electronics in the Digital Age is doable, but a lot of us would agree that it can be cumbersome to work, travel, play and stay social when you’re not equipped with a phone, tablet, laptop or GPS. Watching your electronics slowly deplete throughout the day can be frustrating, especially when you’re away from a power source.
Whether you’re working, traveling, adventuring off-grid, camping, enjoying a day on the water or experiencing an unexpected power outage, you’ll want a backup power supply like a power station, battery pack or power bank that can charge your electronics when you need them most.
What is a Portable Power Station?
The Furrion Trekker portable power station is a rechargeable, battery-powered generator equipped with multiple charging ports, so you can power up the station and charge several electronic devices at the same time.
The Trekker power station is a must-have for long days away from electricity. Hook it up to a wall outlet, car charger or alternative power source for a few hours to quickly charge it. Then, you can power up and charge everything you might need, like cell phones, laptops, mini coolers, electric grills, pressure cookers, coffee makers, hair dryers, air conditioners, lamps, CPAP machines and more. You can even charge up to five devices at once!
The Trekker power station is a safe, eco-friendly choice for powering your electronics outdoors. It includes a Battery Management System (BMS) and pure sine wave inverter technology to protect your sensitive devices from damage, along with an integrated LCD screen that displays battery power, usage time and estimated run time.
Each power station features a heavy-duty hard plastic shell that is incredibly durable and lightweight, so you can take it with you on any trip. The built-in handle also makes it easy to carry when you're outdoors.
How to Choose the Right Portable Power Station for Your Needs
At this point, you may be wondering, “What size portable power station do I need?” When shopping for a rechargeable power station that will be suitable for you, you’ll need to consider the type of equipment you plan to run and whether the Trekker will properly power it. Most household electrical equipment will have voltage and current ratings printed on the device. If the voltage rating is within the allowable range of the Trekker power station, you can use this information to calculate the amount of power your device draws and whether a Trekker can run all the equipment you need.
Trekker power stations are available in three sizes:
- 300W with a 333-watt-hour capacity
- 500W with a 555-watt-hour capacity
- 1000W with a 999-watt-hour capacity
