We recently had a thunderstorm that knocked the power out at my school. I was stuck across the street in the football field house, but my first class came in and used the Growatt VITA 550 I was reviewing to charge their devices. I often bring items I have in for review to show my tech classes, and they were excited to have access to this product in particular.
Yoshino is bringing a new solid-state battery technology to a new power station. Most of the power stations I have reviewed use LifePO4 battery technology, which does work great. Instead, the Yoshino B4000 SST uses Solid-State Lithium batteries, bringing a class-leading power-to-weight ratio. Long story short, this power station packs a big punch in a small package.
I recently reviewed the BLUETTI AC200MAX Expandable Power Station, which I found to be an excellent source of off-grid power. But when paired with the BLUETTI PV350 Solar Panel, you get a duo that is perfect for off-grid camping, and that’s also handy for keeping electronics and small appliances running during extended power outages — as long as you’ve got some sunlight to use for charging and it’s not raining or snowing. Let’s take a look.
We recently reviewed the LiTime 100-Watt portable solar panel. The panel pairs well with the LiTime D320 Portable Power Station if you need portable power. The small power station is perfect for camping trips or power outages, keeping devices ready. Weighing in at just under 8 pounds, the D320 portable power station is highly mobile.
Kev and I have been bitten by the camping bug, as evidenced by our new off-road setup. We’ve got camp chairs, but on every excursion, one of us will mention how nice it would be to have a hammock along. We could buy a packable one, but a lot of times, strapping a hammock to a pair of trees is impossible, impractical, or not allowed, and most portable hammock bases are too large or too unstable for our needs. That’s why the anymaka portable hammock, available for the next 15 days on Kickstarter, appealed to me enough to back it.
The BLUETTI AC200MAX is a 2,048Wh, LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) power station that offers a continuous output capacity of 2,200 watts from its pure sine wave inverter (with up to a 4,800W surge capacity) and up to 16 ways to charge and run your gear. Whether you’re looking for a solution that will power your devices and small appliances when camping or during a blackout, or if you’re considering ways to power a small off-grid home, the expandable BLUETTI AC200MAX offers plenty of solutions to keep the power flowing.
ELECOM is a Japanese firm that makes peripherals for computers, including mice, trackballs, webcams, and headsets. They also make gaming-specific mice and keyboards. The ELECOM NESTOUT product line is a step in a different direction, namely outside.

Kev and I recently purchased a travel trailer that can be pulled behind his Toyota Tacoma or my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Part of the fun of planning your first big camping adventure is making sure that you have all the necessary gear to go off-grid for days at a time, which is why the offer to review the ICECO VL60 couldn’t have come at a better time. The VL60 is a heavy-duty metal dual-zone refrigerator and/or freezer powered by a Danfoss SECOP compressor that can be used in multiple outdoor and indoor scenarios. Let’s take a look.
We had an awesome July 4th Party, but when it was over, my wife Raina and I couldn’t believe how much wasteful packaging everything we bought came in. Then, to make matters worse, we put leftovers in single-use plastic bags. I realized there has to be a better way. And Smelly Proof reusable storage bags just might be part of the solution.
Portable power station technology has come a long way, making them more dependable and powerful. Litheli is releasing the B600 Portable Power Station, which offers two additional detachable, modular batteries to power other Litheli tools and devices. This is a new turn in the product space of portable power hubs and provides users with a grab-and-go experience.
We have recently seen a proliferation of high-capacity batteries for hunting and camping and as a replacement for gas or propane generators when the power goes out. None, however, have the innovative design of the Runhood Modular Power Station system; its design lets you create the system that’s right for you and then add to it as your needs grow.
We recently told you about SoftStartUp, a power management device for RVs. This innovative product doubles as a surge protector while reducing AC startup power demand by up to 50%. SoftStartUP is a game changer for RV and travel trailer owners struggling with power options to run air conditioners and other appliances.
If it seems like forest fires are getting worse and occurring more often, it’s not a figment of your imagination. In the state of Colorado alone, four of their five largest wildfires ever occurred in the last five years. To help keep that from happening while people are camping, hiking, or simply spending time outside this fall, Busch Light is giving away Busch Light Solar Cookers to Colorado residents.
Slice makes cutting tools that are durable and easy to use, but most importantly, their ceramic blades are finger-friendly and safe. Whether your goal is always to be prepared or you regularly have a lot of cardboard boxes that need opening and breaking down (raises hand), Slice has a knife that will get the job done. I was sent the Slice Folding Utility Knife and the EDC Folding Knife to try; both knives have features that make them different from and, yes, likely safer than using their metal blade equivalents. Let’s take a look.
We recently reviewed the Anker 757 PowerHouse, a large 1229Wh portable power station. As you can see in the review, it is an amazing product, but it is a heavy power source that might not always be the best option. The Anker 555 PowerHouse brings some amazing specs in a smaller form factor. Let’s take a look.
Power management is a problem that plagues RV users, especially regarding the air conditioner and possible power surges. The A/C spike at start-up is often too much for most small generators, and shore power often cannot handle it. SoftStartUp has been developed to prevent this problem while adding a level of protection against power surges. It is plug-and-play and easy to use.
