You already own 75% of a backup generator, sitting right there in your driveway! Add CarGenerator™ to your vehicle, and you have the world’s most reliable, longest-running, ultralight, no-maintenance backup power solution.
Works on gas, diesel, hybrid, pure electric EV vehicles. Finally, there’s no need for a gas generator you need to maintain. CarGenerator is sleek and light and requires no maintenance. And it easily powers your home furnace or fridge for 50-70 hours.
So what can it run? You’ll be surprised:
- Your home furnace and sump pump, to keep your house warm and dry when the power goes out
- Your fridge, to keep the food (and beer) cold in the summer weather
- A few lights and TV’s, computers, and more
- RV or trailer batteries. Find the best spot, even if it’s not serviced, and charge your trailer quietly and conveniently with the car that towed it there
- If you’re camping, run fun things like blenders, beer coolers, fridges, party lights, or even that espresso machine your wife gave you heck for buying back in 2015. Plug it in, make her a macchiato
- Bouncy castles, kids toys, projectors for movie nights, speakers and disco lights to keep the party going
- Medical devices: if you haven’t been camping in a while because you need your CPAP, oxygen machine, and other medical device, now you can go!
WHY IS YOUR VEHICLE IS BETTER FOR BACKUP POWER, INSTEAD OF A TRADITIONAL GAS GENERATOR?
- Lightweight and convenient. Starting at just 9 pounds, this tiny device hooks up in a minute, and powers your home for days.
- Environmentally superior. Gas generators are known to be loud and smelly for a reason, they have almost no emissions control or filters. Your car on the other hand, has thousands of dollars of pollution controls and engine management, with regular government emissions testing.
- Ultra-Reliable ready when you need it. If your car starts you have power.
- Longer Runtime than any gas generator. You get 50-70 hours of runtime from your car gas tank, versus refilling a small gas generator tank every 4-6 hours.
- Less Gas Surprise! Running a compact sedan at idle uses less gasoline than running a generator. Honda 1000watt generator .19 gal/hr, compact sedan 2 litre engine .16 gal/hr Source: energy.gov
- Electric / Hybrid cars work great with CarGenerator, and in the case of a pure electric vehicle you use no gasoline at all.
- Hassle Free no maintenance or oil changes, ever.
