Ego Nexus Power Station Review | Modular Battery Inverter
The Ego Nexus power station is a modular battery inverter. It comes with three different types of batteries: lead acid, nickel cadmium (NiCd) and lithium ion. These are all rechargeable batteries which have a long life span.
They can be charged up to 80% capacity in just 30 minutes, and they will last for many years without any maintenance or replacement needed.
In addition to these three types of batteries, there are two other modules which make up the system. One is a control module which controls the flow of electricity through the system. The second one is a storage unit where you can store energy generated from your solar panels.
This storage unit does not need to be connected directly to the power station, but it must be plugged into another electrical outlet such as a wall socket or car cigarette lighter socket.
You can charge your batteries using either a standard 110 volt household plug, or a 240 volt automotive plug. If you want to use both plugs, simply connect them together. You do not need to purchase special adapters for each type of outlet.
Just connect the appropriate wires to the outlets.
When it comes time to generate enough electricity to run your home appliances, you can buy extra batteries and store them in the storage unit until you need them again. The included software allows you to monitor your energy usage and control demand charges. When demand charges are in effect, it will automatically prioritize which appliances get the most electricity, and which ones get the least.
If you do not have enough solar panels to charge all of your batteries, you can also use the software to control when your storage unit draws from the power grid.
This power station is all you need to run your home appliances. It allows you to monitor your energy usage and prioritize what appliances get the most electricity. It has a very small casing that can fit anywhere in your home.
The software is extremely easy to operate, even for non-technical people. This power station is perfect for homes with limited space, or difficult to access buildings.
EGO Power Station
The Ego power station is a modular battery inverter. This means that it converts DC power generated from solar panels into usable AC power at either 120V or 240V. It can also be charged using a standard 110V household power outlet, or a standard automotive power outlet.
This particular model comes with lead-acid batteries, which are the cheapest but also have the shortest lifespan. It can be upgraded to use lithium-ion or ni-cad batteries which have longer lifespans and are cheaper over time, but are more expensive to purchase. The storage unit is not included but can be purchased separately.
Lead-Acid batteries have the cheapest initial cost, but also have the shortest lifespan. They are good for a few years of heavy use before they need to be replaced.
Lithium-Ion batteries last substantially longer and have a medium price tag. They last about ten years with moderate use before needing replacement.
Nickel-Cadmium batteries last the longest and have a higher initial cost, but cheaper over time. They will last up to 25 years with normal use before they need replacement.
Batteries can be replaced by hand, however if you purchase the storage unit, the power station will take care of battery change.
The storage unit is not necessary for the power station to operate. It allows the power station to charge batteries and monitor their usage as well as monitor energy usage of connected appliances. Without the storage unit, you must manually switch out batteries when they run low on power.
The storage unit can be used to prioritize which appliances get the most energy, and is necessary if you want to use your power station to its full potential. The storage unit can be used with any of the available battery types.
The storage unit is stackable, allowing you to have multiple storage units with a single power station. Each additional storage unit increases the load that the power station can handle. For example, a single power station can handle several lights and a refrigerator, but when using a storage unit you can add a coffee maker and toaster oven along with the other appliances without a problem.
The storage unit also monitors the energy being used by devices. This allows you to see which appliances are consuming the most energy, so if you have a tendency to leave the toaster oven on when you’re not home, the storage unit will let you know.
These schematics allow you to build your own solar panels or power stations. They can be purchased directly from the corporation, or you may attempt to hack them from public websites if you have the know how. These schematics are protected by advanced encryption and anti-tampering technology making such attempts near impossible, but not entirely implausible.
If you’re caught illegally downloading these plans, your computer may be hacked and the plans erased, or worse.
You can find a seller on the darknet who can upgrade your power station. The seller is an anonymous figure, known only by their handle ‘E’, and seems to be very knowledgeable about their product. You send them a PM offering their services, and they simply tell you to put the money in an account titled E Inc.
The first upgrade increases the power station’s storage ten-fold as well as increasing it’s battery life and energy transfer rate. The second upgrade allows the storage unit to connect to wifi, allowing the station to act as a wifi hotspot and share it’s energy amongst all the devices connected to it.
“You can’t stop progress.”
Your story has come to an end. The world is slowly rebuilding itself, and new ideas on how to fix problems are being formed every day. But sadly your ideas won’t be one of them.
Your life, just like the lives of many others will go forgotten as time passes by. But you can find comfort in the fact that you helped play a small part in moving humanity forward from the darkness that was descending upon it.
You may have influenced the way humanity rebuilds itself, but that doesn’t mean your life isn’t without hardship.
The worst of it has to be on your brother and sister, who lost their mother and now have no choice but to live with their aunt. You make sure they get a good education and can get a head start in life, but your sister ends up becoming pregnant in her teens while your brother falls into a life of crime, taking drugs and joining a gang. You make sure they’re provided for, but it still hurts to see your siblings go down such paths.
Still, you help humanity so that you can feel as if you’ve redeemed yourself for letting your siblings fall by the wayside.
And that’s not even including the apocalypses that have occurred after the initial flare incident. The first was a strange virus that caused people to bleed from their eyes, ears, nose, and mouth before dying a terrible death. The virus itself was very contagious through bodily fluids as well as airborne, spread by those who were sick as well as the coughing of those around them.
A vaccine was created soon after and the entire world was vaccinated within a matter of days. The vaccine caused some side effects such as nausea, headaches, and fever, but it was nothing compared to the alternative.
The second apocalypse came in the form of a strange new disease, one that doctors and scientists couldn’t figure out. It would start with a fever that lasted for three days, followed by painful vomiting and diarrhea. This would lead to the vital organs shutting down, resulting in death within a week of the first symptoms.
It was named Comet-C for the painful blister that formed across the skin that started from the scalp and neck and went down the entire length of their body, causing the skin to peel off.
Once again, the vaccine created for Comet-C was a quick process, started only days after it’s existence was confirmed. But again, the vaccine caused severe side effects, this time brain swelling, blindness, and hair loss. But once again, it was better than the disease.
The third apocalypse was a simple airborne bacteria that spread through coughing and sneezing. It caused people to become very sick, before shutting down their immune system and vital organs, resulting in death after a week of being sick. It first appeared in China, but quickly spread worldwide.
Unlike the previous two apocalypses, a vaccine couldn’t be created in time due to the disease causing bacteria mutating too quickly.
However you played a small part in creating a cure for this one with the help of an Austrian doctor. A cure was found by extracting blood from a person who had a natural resistance to the disease, then modified and mass-produced into a vaccine. Only a small amount of people could receive the vaccine, but it was able to prevent death in 100% of those who received it.
Unfortunately, due to the limited supply of the vaccine, there wasn’t enough to go around and the majority of the population that didn’t receive the vaccine still died.
But once again, you helped save humanity from certain death. But once again, you still lost someone close to you.
The disease took the life of your son, Kit. You felt the loss even more due to the fact that it was another vaccine side effect that took his life. The stress from the creation of the vaccine and the grief afterwards caused your wife, Annette to fall into a deep depression.
