Starting at just 9 pounds, this tiny device hooks up in a minute, and powers your home for days.
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.
How We Do It
We start with an inverter, kind of like the ones in your local hardware store or home depot for around $299. Ours is a high quality commercial grade pure sine wave unit, essential to safely power your furnace, fridge, etc.
Then we add custom manufactured booster-style cables made of oxygen free pure copper, super heavy duty to handle the power, and made of a special heat proof material that can withstand the intense heat of your engine.
Then we add an adjusting strap and rubberized backing so you can safely hang it on the front of your vehicle. Plus a power meter with instructions so you know exactly how much power you can get from your vehicle safely and without damaging it.
THIS… is our CarGenerator DRY unit, $460 This tiny 9 pound gadget will power the essentials in your home during a power outage, for 50-70 hours on a typical car gas tank.
BUT THEN… we add our magic touch and wrap it all in a custom engineered rainproof ice/snow/weatherproof and highly ventilated housing to get our flagship product, CarGeneratorAllweather, ultralight at just 16 pounds, $795.
No maintenance ever, zero hassle, no messy dangerous gas cans to wrangle, ultra low emissions, and as smooth and quiet as your car purring away idling.
Why Your Vehicle Is Better For Backup Power, Instead Of A Traditional Gas Generator?
Lightweight and Convenient
You get 50-70 hours of runtime from your car gas tank, versus refilling a small gas generator tank every 4-6 hours.
Electric / Hybrid cars
Electric / Hybrid cars work great with CarGenerator, and in the case of a pure electric vehicle you use no gasoline at all.
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.
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
