Ecotricity PS1800S Portable Solar Generator at CES 2011

At CES 2011 we had a look at the best solution for power on the go. The Ecotricity PS1800S Portable Solar Generator will charge fast because of the large solar cell and it will provide tons of standby power because it has a 12 volt 60Ah sealed lead acid battery. The system is a simple to use because of the sealed controller to which you only need to connect to the solar panel. The controller includes a 1800 watt inverter, with this kind of power you will be blending margaritas on the beach in no time.

My suggestion is to buy it for the beach but store it in your garage so next time you have a power fail you can use the PS1800S instead of the candles in the kitchen drawer. Just imagine, you could plug in your living room lamp, TV and DVD player. Then invite your neighbors over to watch a movie until the power comes back on!
