- DEVICE RUN TIMES
Designed with You in Mind
The PowerBlock 500 is designed for everyday people. At 10.6lbs, we’ve made the PowerBlock 500 as lightweight as possible, while keeping it powerful enough to run your most important devices. The ergonomic carry handle makes movement around the house or on-the-go easy. The compact design is great if you’re packing light for your next road trip or if space is limited at home. With silent operation, you can use the PowerBlock 500 anywhere, anytime.
So Easy, Anyone Can Use It
We’ve taken the guesswork out of portable power. Simply plug in the device you want to power in any of the 7 output ports and press the power button to get started! The intelligent LCD screen display lets you know exactly how many hours of power you have remaining based on the devices you have connected. When you’re charging the PowerBlock, the display will also tell how many more hours it will take to get the PowerBlock fully charged.
Reliable Emergency Power
Keep the PowerBlock 500 on standby for power outages, bad weather and other emergencies! It’s safe to keep the PowerBlock 500 plugged into your AC outlet for maintenance charging when not in use. The internal charger is designed to optimize power without overcharging the battery, giving you maximum power to keep critical devices powered up until power is restored!
Fast 4 Hour Recharge with Solar
The PowerBlock includes a built-in 200-Watt MPPT solar controller that allows for a 4 hour recharge time with most 200W Solar Panels. Uses an industry standard Anderson Connector for compatibility with most solar panels. (solar panel not included)
Battery Powered vs Gas Generators
Unlike Gas Generators, the PowerBlock 500 is battery powered, meaning it is safe for both outdoor and indoor use. When you choose the PowerBlock 500, worries about fuel storage or dangerous fumes are thing of the past. The PowerBlock 500 provides clean and sustainable energy and emit 81% less CO2 emissions than gas-powered generators.
Some devices, like refrigerators, need a little extra boost of power to get started. With our PowerBoost inverter, the PowerBlock 500 can withstand a higher wattage power draw, up to 1000 watts, for a short time - just enough time to get your device going.
