When the power goes out, your level of preparation makes all the difference between minor inconvenience or total disaster. The Generark Solar Generator kit is a portable, solar-powered generator that could help make your next blackout into nothing more than a reason to break out your favorite candles.

For a limited time, the Generark Solar Generator is on sale for $1,499 (regularly $1,597).

A portable battery and the solar panels to charge it

Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon, the Generark Solar Generator is a reliable source of electricity when everything else fails. With it comes a pair of SolarPower One portable solar panels. The generator’s 1,002Wh charge capacity translates into roughly seven days of power for small appliances, medical equipment and electronics.

You can plug directly into the Generark through three AC outlets or two USB-C ports. Recharging is straightforward; simply use the SolarPower One solar panels, or connect the Generark to your car or a (working) AC outlet.

“Powered my cooler, 24 led lights, coffee maker, toaster, cell phones, fan and a laptop,” wrote one reviewer. “Only needed solar panels twice, out of nine days. Easy to carry, hardly takes up any room.”

The SolarPower One solar panels can produce up to 200W of power output. You can plug them directly into the HomePower One generator, but they also connect to other devices using their built-in USB-C and USB-A output ports.

The pair of SolarPower One solar panels are incredibly efficient for their size. The monocrystalline design makes them highly efficient, with 32 solar cells and a total weight of only 9.1 pounds. Plus, setting them up is practically effortless. Just unfold, plug in and point toward the sun.
