NEW for 2012 Best Price Free Shipping* on the Humless Sentinel portable power pack solar generator a quiet clean safe mobile lithium battery system. The Sentinel can deliver up to a 1000 watts of pure sine AC power or up to 300 watts of 12v DC power output using the lithium based 600 watt hour capacity (50AH) internal battery.
What makes the Humless Sentinel different and better than any other similar portable battery powerpack is it's lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery. Not only is it lighter weight than system with lead acid batteries but the lithium battery will provide more power per pound than the sealed lead acid batteries which are primarily used in other comparable systems. That means more power output in a smaller lighter box. When it comes to longevity a lithium battery wins hands down both in the number of times the Sentinel's battery can be charged and discharged and the life in years it will last. The Humless Sentinel's battery can be charged 4-6 times more in terms of cycle life, (2000+ cycles vs 400-800 cycles) compared to similar capacity lead acid batteries. It's lithium battery can also sit in storage for a year or more without needing to be recharged every few months or be on a constant trickle charge to maintain it's health. More powerpack batteries of the lead acid variety are lost to neglect and from not being maintained in a charged state than from being worn out from actual use. The Sentinel's lithium battery technology preserves your investment without you having to babysit it when it's not in use. Just charge it minimally once a year and it will be ready to use when you need it. If kept charged and well maintained it should last up to 10 years waiting for service.
The Humless Sentinel can be charged multiple ways from a regular AC wall outlet, or from 12v alternative DC power sources such as solar panels, a pedal or hand crank dynamo, a wind turbine, a DC car outlet, or other 12V DC power generating devices. The Humless Sentinel stores the captured power in a state of the art Lithium Battery pack to be taken with you and used whenever or where ever you might need it. The Humless Sentinel's built in 1000 watt pure sine 110V AC inverter is accessible through two built in outlets. Two 12VDC 10 Amp car type power outlets are also available as are 4 USB ports to allow you to easily charge or power whatever devices or appliances you need. Whether you need to power a laptop, computer, medical device like a CPAP or BiPAP, run a fan or lights during an emergency or power outage, or simply watch a movie in the great outdoors, the Humless Sentinel will give you the power you need when you need it.

With the whole package weighing in at 41 lbs, it’s transportable enough to take wherever you want to go without the noise, mess or danger of fuels such as gasoline or the harmful emissions they create. The Sentinel provides power on demand that is quiet and safe enough to use inside your home, car, RV, trailer or tent.
No generator that we know of is fuelless but capturing power from the sun with a solar panel and storing it in the Humless Sentinel's lithium battery is as close to a fuel-less generator as you can get and couldn't be easier to use - just plug a 12v nominal 90-175 watt solar panel in and from a good sunny day you can fully recharge the battery from empty to full! Smaller solar panels work too but may take much longer to recharge the battery.
The internal lithium battery-pack makes the Humless Sentinel a reliable and portable power source. With a 10 year battery life and a rating of over 2,000 charges, the Humless Sentinel can be counted on when you need it most. The Sentinel's battery is acid and lead-free and can sit for over a year without being charged. The Humless Sentinel will store well in your closet and always be ready to power your appliances and devices when you need to use them most or just far from the grid.
