Renogy Rethinks Mobile Energy with Lycan Powerbox Solar Powered Generator

13 Apr 2016

Intuitive and innovative generator provides 100% clean energy and zero maintenance with interchangeable lithium-iron phosphate battery

 Ontario, Calif, April 13, 2016Renogy, a leading expert in renewable, non-traditional energy, unveils the Lycan Powerbox, the world’s first personal energy solution that transforms the power of the sun into easy-to-use and dependable energy.  A quiet, efficient and pollution-free portable solar generator, the Lycan is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, and is the first to feature a swappable lithium-iron phosphate battery, the most reliable and cleanest battery in the world.

“Our vision has been very clear, we want to simplify solar power by making it affordable, reliable and easy to use,” says Yi Li, CEO of Renogy.  “We need to impact the world through clean and safe energy products that are appealing and plug-and-play.”

The ideal power source for camping, tailgating or survivalist excursions, the waterproof Lycan Powerbox features a rugged exterior to weather any environment, heavy-duty wheels for effortless movement, and extended handles to easily maneuver it on any setting.  Unlike conventional gas generators that use motors and discharges fumes, the Lycan is 100% battery powered, making it safe to use indoors during emergencies or as a way to reduce energy related expenses.

 “The Lycan PowerBox is incredibly intuitive and uses the best battery technology available for outstanding reliability and safety,” adds Li.  “Our interchangeable lithium-ion phosphate battery has a lifespan of over 2000 cycles, or almost 40 years if used once a week.  The Lycan does everything for you, simply plug your appliances and devices in and forget about energy issues.”

 The Lycan Powerbox has a maximum solar input of 300 watts and can be fully charged in 3 hours using 3 solar panels.  It can also be charged through wall outlets and by using car charging inputs.  Its built-in USB and AC/DC outputs are compatible with a full range of devices and appliances, allowing consumers to simultaneously charge and power multiple items including smartphones, TVs, laptops, microwaves, refrigerators, cameras, lamps, medical equipment, and more.

“Renogy started as a way to educate people about the benefits of solar power when I was pursuing my PhD degree, and we’ve effectively reached the DIY market throughout the years,” states Li.  “We believe that the Lycan will help us reach another audience and convey the need of having alternative sources of energy.”

Lycan Powerbox is currently available for pre-order on Indiegogo.com for the discounted rate of $1449 (MSRP $1799); the first 25 backers will receive Lycan Powerbox for the “early bird discount” pledge level of $1249.
