A Guide to Battery Generator Sets
Are you looking for an off-grid solution to providing power for your home, church or business? Have you considered using a battery generator to run your lights, refrigerator, car, or air conditioning unit during an emergency? A battery is not just for the outdoors anymore! Batteries can provide backup electricity for your home and church through renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. The idea is quite exciting.
Many of us know that natural gas generators can be noisy and smell, but not anymore. New battery generators use quiet Direct Current (DC) electricity from batteries to run silent motors and silent drive mechanism. These motors can be made small enough to run miniature appliances and lighting fixtures. They will also run just as silently as the bigger conventional generators. The only noticeable sound from these systems are the startup chimes.
Solar powered battery generators do not have the same annoying startup chimes as gas or oil-fired appliances. However, the quiet fans are just as loud and sometimes louder than the larger devices. This combination of quiet fans and loud fans makes a nice combination and perfect for emergency use.
With a fully charged battery generator you will have three times more energy than you would with a regular appliance. This extra energy gives you three times more light than you would with a standard bulb. You can run all your lighting and cooling appliances with one unit and extend the hours of operation of your appliances and your light source, while eliminating the need for extension cords. These systems can turn on completely with just one pull of a cord.
Do you take long trips? A portable battery generator allows you to operate your RV, boat, tent and other travel arrangements for hours on end with no interruption in power recharging. These units will charge while you are in the middle of the ocean or in the dead of winter. You can leave your RV or boats in your garage and come back to them fully charged and ready to go.
One popular use for these types of generators is camping. They work well in an RV and on a camping trip and you can bring along all your necessary equipment. These units will allow you to spend many days camping in relative comfort and without having to worry about the lack of electricity. The size and weight of these generators make it easy to transport and are capable of powering most small electronics, which makes them the ideal choice for RVers, campers and travelers.
If you want a portable power solution but would also like to minimize your emissions and help the environment, consider purchasing a combination of solar and battery generator sets. These can be powered by both standard in-wall and rechargeable batteries. A solar charger will draw power from the sun, while a regular breaker box will charge the batteries on the wall. The solar panels on the unit collect the energy from the sun and store it in rechargeable nickel metal hydride and nickel-polymer cells that are then connected to the batteries. A standard 110 volt outlet will provide power for most household items and appliances while the rechargeable batteries in the unit power most electronic devices and home entertainment systems.
If you live in a more remote area and you can’t carry a generator with you when you go out of town, you might consider purchasing one of the many emergency gas generators that can be found online. These units will offer you plenty of emergency power you need for days when you have no electrical power. These units will also run on gasoline and will be ready to use when you need them.
