Store Emergency Power for when you need it
We all face natural disasters: Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Snow and i\Ice storms cutting off power to millions each year.

Then there are man-made disasters and outages
Blackouts and rolling brownouts are becoming common in many parts of the United States as our politicians herd us off into third-world status. And never forget the possibility of a terrorist attack directed at a few of our nation’s power plants. Since the nation’s power grids are all “connected,” crippling one plant starts a cascading downward spiral of darkness.

Your neighbors will always be clueless
when it happens, expecting the government to “do something” to get their precious cable TV back on. The truth is, we are extremely vulnerable to all kinds of meltdowns that can create temporary or even permanent electrical outages. That’s why if you are one of the few Americans that have eyes to see and ears to hear with respect to the hard times ahead. In fact, you can also expect rising electrical rates very soon, as promised by the new administration.

That's why you need a backup power supply, today.
Not after the lights go out.

Portable Solar Power for Home, RV, Cabin, Boat

It’s the perfect emergency backup for troubled times at any location.
When the lights go out at your house… you’ll be glad you didn’t hesitate.

Have you ever wondered how to create your own renewable energy or backup power system for your home, business, cabin, or cottage? Introducing the Xantrex PowerHub, the first backup and renewable power system that allows you to independently create your own energy.

The PowerHub converts power stored in your deep cycle batteries to 1800 watts of household power to operate your essential applications. It provides an affordable, high output, primary power solution for an off-grid cottage or cabin, as well as backup power for grid-connected homes when the power goes out.

Setting up this power system is simple and hassle-free with built-in fuses, breakers, and cables. The PowerHub is designed to be part of a system that allows you to easily connect to and charge your batteries with solar and wind inputs, and allows for pass-through generator output or generator charging of the batteries as well. And, its advanced automatic power transfer switching ensures your essential applications keep running in your grid-connected home should the power go out.

Product Features

  • Modified sine wave inverter/charger with battery box

  • Designed to include a generator as part of the system; generator power
         can pass through the unit to the AC outlets, and recharge the batteries

  • Integrated transfer switch

  • 40-amp three-stage charger

  • Four AC outlets with hardwire option

  • Two DC inputs for solar and/or wind connections

  • Full-feature LED display for system monitoring
