If you needed to charge your devices while out tailgating, you normally needed to turn on your vehicle and plug in your device to the cigarette lighter. With gas prices the way they are, this is terribly expensive not to mention the extra exhaust you will be pumping into the air. You don’t need to fire up your 300 horsepower car just to power up your cell phone or tablet while out tailgating.
We recently discovered the EnerPlex Generatr 100, a lightweight and portable power solution for a wide array of consumer electronics. This power port has USB outputs for phones and tablets, a 12V port for lights and a standard outlet for laptops. Charge the Generatr 100 via wall outlet or sun using EnerPlex’s patented solar panels.
We had a chance to test out the EnerPlex Generatr 100 while out tailgating the Chargers/Raiders game in October and we found it to be quite useful. (Disclaimer: We received a sample of the EnerPlex Generatr 100 free of charge. The fact this sample was provided to us for free in no way influenced our opinion of the product nor did it impact our ability to test and review the product fairly and objectively.) You may recall we reviewed the Rapoo A500 Bluetooth Portable NFC Speaker back in the spring. We have been using the Rapoo speaker for all of our tunes while tailgating since. Because we usually play Pandora while tailgating, the bluetooth broadcasting to the speaker and pulling the extra bandwidth to play Pandora will typically drain our battery much faster than had we not. By using the EnerPlex Generatr 100 to power the phone while playing music we were ensured that we would have plenty of battery life left for checking fantasy football scores, social media posts and locating friends to join us for the post game tailgate.
Some of the main features of the EnerPlex Generatr 100 include:
- 94 Whrs portable battery
- USB, 12V, 19V Laptop Port, and integrated AC Inverter Outputs
- Can charge any electronic device up to a laptop
- Dual Charging Capabilities
- Recipient of the 2015 Red Dot Product Design Award
After using the EnerPlex Generatr 100 while out tailgating, it is “Tailgate Approved“. No longer do you need to fire up your tailgating vehicle just to charge your cell phone. Just make sure the EnerPlex Generatr 100 is charged before going tailgating and you can stay charged up throughout the entire day. Now you’ll never miss a selfie of be able to play that awesome playlist.
