expiredStorm Season! Get a serious 3kW 10hr/tank portable generator for $880 shipped, today only

In my experience you either have a powerful, reliable generator with versatile outlets or you can have a portable generator – but rarely do you get all three in one package. Today’s Gold Box challenges that notion with the 4.3-star rated Briggs and Stratton 30545 P3000 PowerSmart 3000-Watt Inverter Generator with a Home/RV 30A outlet, (4) 120-Volt AC Outlets & (1) 12-Volt DC Outlet for $880 shipped. This thing rarely drops below $1000 and usually can be found in the $1200-$1300 range.

expiredGreen Deals: Anker’s new PowerHouse Clean Energy 400Wh Inverter $400 shipped (Reg. $500), more

AnkerDirect via Amazon offers its new PowerHouse 400Wh Portable Clean DC/AC Power Inverter for $499.99. Applying coupon code ANKPower drops the final price to $399.99 shipped. That’s good for $100 off the original MSRP/regular going rate and the first discount that we’ve seen. This is equivalent to the GoalZero Yeti 400 but it uses lithium instead of lead acid batteries. That means more power, smaller footprint, lasts longer and a third of the weight. Somehow with the coupon above, it is even cheaper.

This is great for camping, cabins, and storing solar power so you can use it into the night. It also makes a great backup source of power and can run many low usage devices (even mini fridges!) for hours. It has just about every conceivable I/O including 12V car, 4 high power IQ USB ports and 110V AC out. The display will tell you how much power you’ve used and have left. Comes with a built-in handle and weighs only nine-pounds.

House powered by Prius

The Prius powering our home during Hurricane Sandy

Our town got hit hard during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Our home lost power for almost 2 weeks and I hadn’t purchased a generator for our house. Time to move into a hotel, right?


I had a couple of small inverters and a Toyota Prius with a full 10 gallon tank of gas that kept our house lit and computers/phones/internet on for the better part of 2 weeks. I even had enough power for some Halloween lights… expand full story
