Kohler EnCUBE 1.8 KW Solar Recharging Generator Review
The Kohler EnCUBE 1.8 kW Solar Recharging Generator is a compact, yet powerful solar panel designed to power your electronics from any outdoor source with minimal impact on the environment. The EnCUBE’s patented design uses a combination of thin film and solid state technology to maximize efficiency while minimizing weight and size. The EnCUBE is available in two sizes: 1.6 kW (1.2 kWh) or 2.0 kW (3.4 kWh).
The EnCUBE’s unique design allows it to charge your electronic devices at night when the sun isn’t shining directly on them, but rather during the day when there are no direct sunlight sources nearby. You’ll be able to use your tablet, laptop, smartphone or other device even if the power goes out during the daytime hours.
The EnCUBE is powered by three AAA batteries which provide up to 6 hours of continuous operation. A USB port provides connection to your computer for charging and data transfer. If you need additional power for a long period of time, you can recharge these batteries using a standard wall outlet.
Four high definition LED lights provide up to twenty feet of nighttime visibility, perfect for roadways and walkways. Use these lights to brighten dark areas while working on equipment in the evening or to signal for help in an emergency situation. With these lights, you won’t need to worry about unstable ladders or working during low visibility conditions.
The EnCUBE is the perfect companion for any outdoor enthusiast in need of emergency lighting. It’s also great for families with pets, allowing you to keep your dog or cat in the yard overnight. If you have an RV, camper or mobile home, you can use the EnCUBE to provide power at any location without needing to plug in.
The ability to charge your electronics when the power isn’t available makes the EnCUBE an ideal partner for camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, boating and RV trips. Never worry about your electronics or flashlight failing when you’re away from the comforts of home.
The EnCUBE is also an essential survival tool for emergency preparedness. Whether you’re at home, work or while traveling, the EnCUBE can provide a source of light and energy when you need it most. Keep one in your car, keep one at the office and keep one in your emergency supply kit so you’ll always be prepared for an unexpected power outage.
The EnCUBE is perfect for use in:
Camping and backpacking trips
Hurricanes and power outages
The EnCUBE is designed to handle extreme weather conditions. It can stand up to wind gusts of over 100 miles per hour and operate at temperatures as low as -4° F. The durable housing can withstand drops of 6.5 feet.
Using solar energy in these conditions would be ideal.
The EnCUBE is the perfect solution for charging your electronic devices when you’re away from the comforts of home. Its innovative design provides reliable power without the need to maintain or change batteries. With the EnCUBE, you’ll have more free time to enjoy your favorite pastimes outdoors.
NOTE: EnCUBE is a rechargeable battery and should not be used as primary power source. If your power goes out, please contact your electric company so that they may fix the problem. The EnCUBE is not a portable generator and is not to be used in the vicinity of gas generators or internal combustion engines. Please read and follow all safety warnings and instructions included with the EnCUBE.
