Power Source 1800 Solar backup generatorIntroducing a powerful new way to keep your essential household appliances running when the power goes out. Power outages are a reality that can threaten your productivity and sense of comfort. The Power Source 1800 is the perfect Backup power solution for essential home appliances, emergency power electronics and full size office equipment during a power outage.

Power Source 1800 will supply up to twelve hours of uninterrupted backup power for a small office, and up to eight hours of runtime for essential home appliances and small electronics during a power outage.

Until now, backup power products on the market have only been able to provide limited backup power for outages, and not extended runtime like the Power Source 1800. The unit switches to backup power automatically when a power outage occurs. This happens seamlessly so the home appliances and electronic devices that are hooked up to it won't sense the power outage. They'll run off the units charged battery for hours.
