THE PORTABLE GENERATOR THAT YOU ALREADY OWN!!
Do you enjoy spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars unnecessarily when you don’t have to? Of course you don’t.
If not, then why would you EVER spend your hard-earned money on a portable gas generator when you don’t need to? Because… as you are about to learn, more than likely you don’t. You simply don’t realize that you already own one!!
Do you own a vehicle? If so, then you already have a perfectly suitable mobile generator sitting in your garage or driveway already!!
Generators consist mainly of two components: A) A gas-powered engine and B) an electric motor that is spun by the gas motor to generate electrical power.
Well that’s precisely what your vehicle is! Your vehicle is powered by a gas engine that turns an electric “motor” (your alternator) to generate electricity that is stored by your vehicle’s battery to start your vehicle and run all of its electrical components!
And the good news is… it’s not difficult AT ALL to quickly and easily transform your vehicle into an emergency gas-powered generator!! We can show you how HERE!
We can also show you how to save HUNDREDS of dollars (the cost of a gas-powered portable generator) in the process!!
WHY PORTABLE GENERATORS ARE SUCH A TERRIBLE INVESTMENT!!
Now just to be 100% clear, this article is NOT intended to be a criticism, admonishment or “slam” on anyone who already owns a portable gas generator! If you already own a portable gas generator, GREAT!! Portable gas generators do exactly what they are intended to do: provide electrical power. This article is for those who DON’T have a portable gas generator already but are considering purchasing one for emergency power purposes. I simply want to give these folks an opportunity to consider another option before investing hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars on a portable gas generator when… they really don’t need to. So please, current portable gas generator owners… don’t take this article personally. 😉
OK, now back to the alternative option:
Imagine for a moment that you are thirsty and you would like a glass of water to drink.
Now… to pour that single glass of water, would you go to every faucet in your house and turn them ALL on FULL BLAST and then LEAVE them all on as you pull a single glass out of the kitchen cabinet, fill the glass up with water from just one faucet, take a sip… and then just LEAVE ALL OF THE FAUCETS ON IN YOUR ENTIRE HOUSE INDEFINITELY?? Simply because you know that sooner or later you are going to need another glass of water again??
Of course you wouldn’t. That would be absurdly wasteful and ridiculous.
The vast majority of us would NEVER be this cavalier about our water usage or be this blatantly wasteful with our water (We all know someone who loves those long hot showers in the morning, right?)… which, for the sake of perspective, costs about $0.0015 per gallon. (Average nationwide)
Now imagine that tap water cost $2.70 per gallon like gasoline does!! From that perspective, how does it make ANY KIND OF SENSE to run a gas generator continuously with NO REGARD for A) how much power your generator is generating for you that is going completely unused, and B) how much fuel (money) we are burning continuously keeping that generator running just to power a few items??
Sadly, that is EXACTLY what most people do when they purchase and use a gas-powered portable generator. They leave the generator running at full capacity just to power a few smaller items… or sometimes while powering no items at all!! What a complete waste of fuel and money!! This is exactly like keeping all of those faucets running full time all at once just so you can dunk your glass under the faucet periodically to rehydrate… only fuel costs SO much more than water does!! Is that really smart??
Not to mention that fact that even if money were no object to you, in MANY emergency situations fuel can become a scarce commodity and may not even be accessible to you at all no matter how much money you have and are willing to pay!!
Now back to our water analogy for a moment: Let’s pretend for a moment that our only option is to have all of the faucets in our home either A) completely off, or B) ALL of them on at once and on full blast. (I know, I know… just work with me here for a moment for the sake of our analogy. I’m making a point.) What then? Not having water isn’t an option. But turning on all of your faucets full blast just to get a little bit of water… that is a terrible option as well. Hmmm…
Well what if you had a large container that you could connect to ALL of your full blast faucets at once, fill with that container with water and never waste single a drop, and then once the container was full you could simply turn off all of the faucets and then just trickle out EXACTLY what you needed when you needed it from that container?? That would work, right? Absolutely it would! Wouldn’t that be much smarter? Of course it would!
So the “full blast water faucets” in this analogy are our power source (your current vehicle which you already own and don’t need to spend extra money on, or… you could spend money on a portable gas generator, solar panels, wind turbines, micro hydro etc. if you really want to). The “container” in this analogy would be… A BATTERY BANK!! With a simple DIY battery bank you can simply use IT to recharge and power devices, lights, etc. and only use the “faucets” (your generator) to top of your “container” (battery bank) again as it gets low! No wasted fuel!! NO WASTED MONEY!!
MORAL OF THE STORY:
DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A PORTABLE GENERATOR!!
INVEST THAT MONEY IN A QUALITY BATTERY BANK INSTEAD!!
You already have an amazing portable/mobile gas-powered generator sitting in your garage or driveway, and we can help show you how to set it up!
So you don’t need to spend more money on a portable gas generator.
And we can show you how to EASILY build your very own DIY emergency battery bank system to meet all of your power needs during an outage for a FRACTION of what you’d pay for a commercially made battery bank!
So let us help you SAVE MONEY and simultaneously GET COMPLETELY SET UP for any power outage!!
What are you waiting for??
