Innergy Power Launches Emergency Preparedness Kit to Power Cell Phones, Laptop Computers and Two-Way Radios After Hurricanes, Earthquakes and Natural Disasters
SAN DIEGO, California -- May 30, 2006 -- Innergy Power Corporation today announced its IP123EP Emergency Preparedness Kit to provide renewable, long-lasting emergency power for low voltage devices when regular electrical service has been interrupted after hurricanes, earthquakes and natural disasters. A high-capacity rechargeable battery with built-in solar charging comes packed in a rugged carrying case and provides power to cell phones, laptop PCs and two-way radios to support vital communications for both rescue personnel and survivors.
Before disaster strikes, the Emergency Preparedness Kit can be kept on permanent wall charge so it is ready for immediate use when a loss of power occurs. The Emergency Preparedness Kit's solar charger provides power during extended power outages ranging from several days up to several weeks.
Following Hurricane Katrina, rescue personnel and citizens relied heavily upon gas-powered generators for emergency power. Unfortunately, once their gas supply was exhausted, they found long lines at the gas pumps and many could not secure additional fuel for days. Innergy Power's Emergency Preparedness Kit is an alternative solution that can meet many low voltage power needs in a uniquely packaged, portable design with no need for gas-powered generators.
"Hurricane Katrina taught us many lessons and one of the most important was the need for more reliable back-up power for communications," said Darrell Musick, president and CEO of Innergy Power. "Our Emergency Preparedness Kit is a renewable energy, rechargeable power solution that can provide back-up power throughout the day or night."
The heart of the Emergency Preparedness Kit is Innergy Power's 12V, 8Ah Power Pack. The kit also includes a 12V wall charger for permanent charging so the unit is ready when the power fails and a detachable 12V DC plug to provide power to most portable 12V devices. A 12V halogen light and a ballistic nylon carrying case with room for additional emergency preparedness supplies round out the kit.
The Power Pack can be recharged in multiple ways depending upon the situation. In normal conditions, it can be plugged into a wall outlet to insure that it’s fully charged when needed. When power is not available from the electrical grid, it can be recharged by the sun or from the DC outlet in a car, truck or RV.
This combination of portability and multiple recharging options makes it ideal for use in emergencies as well as for recreational use in remote areas. Possible recreational uses include RV and marine battery charging, cell phone battery charging, powering portable DVD players and electronic games, and remote lighting.
This innovation in portable renewable power is made possible by leveraging Innergy Power's position as a leading supplier of thin rechargeable battery packs and their production of rugged and portable solar panels.
