Growing Greener Innovations is preparing to bring its latest development to the market – the ultra-compact Grengine UltraLite XC generator with replaceable batteries. It is absolutely silent, does not emit exhaust gases and is extremely easy to use. Its replaceable lithium-ion batteries allow you to use one battery while the other is charging. Weighs Grengine UltraLite XC is only six kilograms and has a capacity of 440 Wh.
UltraLite XC uses VersaCharge’s universal connection scheme, which allows you to choose how the generator itself will receive power. It can be charged at home from a wall outlet, from a car engine or using folding solar panels. In this case, manufacturers guarantee more than 5000 charge-discharge cycles and an effective capacity of 80% under the most extreme conditions of use (-20 ° C).
Use Grengine UltraLite XC simply – you need to charge the device itself, connect a removable battery to it, choose the type of current (constant or variable) and connect the cable to any desired output port. The generator is equipped with an American standard outlet, a USB port and a standard jack for auto-gadgets. When the battery is depleted, it can be replaced with fresh battery, and the first one can be sent for recharging. One Grengine UltraLite XC battery provides about 7 hours of notebook operation, one hour of continuous use of an electric drill or one and a half hours of operation of a powerful halogen lamp.
The batteries of the device are recharged approximately six hours from the wall outlet and from the solar panels (under ideal weather conditions) or about 10 hours from the car engine. For those who do not have enough capacity in 440 Wh, the company offers a senior model of the generator – Grengine 1000 with PowerStack technology. It allows you to create a single cascade of batteries with a capacity of 1200 watts each.
Now, Growing Greener Innovations has launched a financial campaign on Kickstarter. If it proves successful, the first UltraLite XC generators will go to their new owners in August of this year. The price of the device with one built-in battery will be 565 Canadian dollars. For an amount of $ 1,415, developers will provide a complete set – a generator, two replaceable batteries and a folding solar panel.
