What is the Safari ME?
The Safari ME is the latest in Lithium battery technology for portable power needs. It replaces traditional noisy gas generators with the safest Lithium batteries on the market today. It is light weight for the amount of power it has. Think of it as a safe, silent, renewable generator and without the need for gas, pollution or all that weight.
What does the Safari ME power?
You can use it to power a wide variety of devices like cell phones, laptops, tablets refrigerators, freezers, TVs, lights, hot plates or grills, power tools, and the list goes on. Virtually any device you can plug into a standard wall outlet, the Safari ME can power it.
How can you figure out how long the Safari ME will power specific devices?
The ME has a continuous 2,000W of power output (watts of power output) and over 900Wh (922 watt hours) of stored energy. That means you can power devices that require up to 2,000W of power for various periods of time. To calculate how long the ME can power a device, use this formula: Wh / W = Estimated Run Time. For example, if the device requires 50W of power and the ME has 922Wh then the device can be powered for approximately 18.5 hours (922 / 50 = 18.44)
How long can the Safari ME hold a charge?
It will maintain its charge for up to a year without having to charge it. This is known as shelf life or storage life. Each month is will lose a little bit of the charge, more in the first month and less each month thereafter. Over a year it will average about 2-3% a month. Just plug it in and recharge it anytime. We recommend using frequently – in the house, outside, on adventures and ready for emergencies.
Can the Safari ME power an A/C unit?
The Safari ME can power some AC units depending upon the brand and the watts each AC unit requires. Like with most devices, the power consumption varies from brand to brand and model to model. The ME can output 2,000W continuously. Check out our videos tab for a detailed review on the ME.
How can I connect the Safari ME to my house?
You would need a home integration kit, which is generally found at home improvement/electrical supply/hardware stores.
Can the Safari ME be used to store solar power or solar energy?
The Safari ME is a great energy storage unit for solar power from solar panels. It can store 922Wh (watt hrs) of energy.
Why should I buy the Safari ME?
The Safari ME is made from the highest quality and longest lasting battery technology – Lithium Iron Phosphate. The Safari ME is safe, silent and renewable, unlike gas-powered generators. The ME gives your power anywhere, anytime.
Will the Safari ME work with power tools?
Yes, most power tools will work just fine with the ME. Some require more energy at startup (a surge) and may need to have a "soft start" component added to the ME that can be found at home improvement, electric supply, or hardware stores.
