If you’re working on location or on any production that requires emission-free and virtually noise-free power, the BASECAMP Power Station looks to be a good solution. The BASECAMP was designed to handle any kind of weather.

The BASECAMP certainly isn:t lightweight and it tips the scales at just under 400 lbs / 181 kg. It does have wheels, but it would probably take 2-3 people to move it around.

Key features

  • High internal battery storage capacity equipped with 15 kWh.
  • High power inverter supporting 8 kW loading equals to a 5 HP motor.
  • Supports split/single phase pure sin wave output.
