Grengine 1000 : a new innovative Solar Generators

Green Engine or Grengine to be accurate is on a tear collecting $ 24,143 as on December 6th 2016 on its crowd funding effort on Indiegogo.

Canadian start-up Growing Greener Innovations has a winner on its hands. Its GRENGINE 1000 – is professionally designed has impeccable lines and fits beautifully into any modern home.  Its whisper quiet and has some serious power under its hood.

Lamp (4 WH) 300 charges
Smartphone or GoPro (5 WH) 240 charges
Digital Camera (8 WH) 150 charges
Tablet (30 WH) 40 charges
Laptop (50 WH) 24 charges
Light Bulb (30 W) 40 hours

Outstanding Innovation

The Grengine 1000 is powered by 12 volt, 100 Amp hr Lithium Ion batteries. Each battery weighs just 12 lbs as compared to a typical AGM lead acid battery which weighs 85 lbs. Where Grengine 1000 scores over existing solar generators on the market is the ability to stack the batteries.

You just add them to the battery stack. You can super power this unit with a few batteries while making sure you have the appropriate adaptor to power almost anything currently operating on lead acid : lawn mowers, water pumps, snow blowers, and so much more.  The Lithium Ion batteries can work upto a 1000 cycles of charging and recharging.

The  GRENGINE 1000 is a solar power generator that can produce upto 1200Wh of energy.  The chart below gives you a good idea of its power.  Of course if you add another battery it will double capacity.

You can power up the generator with solar panels or a car charger or directly using an AC outlet.  The unit has 4 AC output 3 pin sockets and four USB ports and a 12 V DC charging outlet (car charger). The LED display switches between input and output modes.

Light Weight and Portable

The GRENGINE 1000 at 25 lbs is light and portable. The unit is relatively light at 24 pounds.

The battery at 12 pounds is light enough to make the entire unit easy to take on your next camping or hiking trip. The handle atop the unit makes it easy to move the unit around as well.

Make a Contribution

The GRENGINE 1000 portable generator is currently seeking crowd funding on Indiegogo. It is available for pre-order there with variety of offers and deals. Starting at $1 and going upto $ 2,475 there are a variety of options for making a contribution to the project. The company expects to start shipping the device by January 2017. Please make your contribution to the project and book the next generation solar generator.

    The website growinggreener.ca has a goodly amount of information on the Grengine products for anyone who wants a little more info than what is on your excellent 2016 review.
    Thank you again.
