"I just used my Steven Harris battery back up for first time. Power went out about 10 pm. Kids already in bed. We have a generator but winter storm Ian is rolling through and I didn't want to go out in it. I was really concerned about my 3 year old getting up in the middle of the night in complete darkness. I took two strands of Christmas lights hooked them up to 800 watt inverter and attached to golf cart battery. Problem solved. Thanks Steve! Power came on a few hours later."
I really appreciate all of your work. My mobile power bank has come in handy while moving - I have a 10x30 storage unit that I had to empty at night. I was able to light it up well and even run a fan (it was 90 degrees) with my mobile bank."
"A few weeks ago we lost power here. I had my incubator set up and some eggs getting close to hatch. No worries! Steve had me all set up and ready to rock. I just moved my plug for the incubator over to the inverter and battery, and voila I have power. Thanks for the info Steve."
"Outstanding job Steve! Very thorough and complete information here. It's the 'Holy Grail' of emergency power 'how to'. You've led the horse to water, now ..... it will drink!"
"Best money I have spent to give me peace of mind during an emergency. Step by step instructions from someone who has tested everything he has demonstrated. Very powerful material! I want to thank you for sharing this!"
"Great production quality, made the project seem doable and got a great refresher on electrical work."
"The power at my house went out last night just after midnight and it took me just a few short minutes to have my led bulb equipped lamp hooked up to my home battery backup, weather radio playing and cell phones charging! Power was only out for a few hours, but I was ready and got to practice my preps! What was really cool was my wife saying 'You know, I'm not worried at all! If it gets cold, we've got the kerosene heater. If we need power, I know you've got the battery that'll last a long time!' That made my day!"
"I am an older woman with absolutely no experience with batteries, chargers, cables or inverters. Steve's videos have given me the confidence to purchase the items and shortly have my battery bank I built up and running. I trust the information he presents, as well as what items to purchase to have a great system."
"Great quality, great instruction. Usually when someone tries to pull something like this off, it leaves one with more questions than answers. Not the case with Stevens Battery Bank Videos!"
"Great video series...takes you from Soup to Nuts. It is the 'paint by numbers' approach to building a battery back-up system. My wife watched it with me....she's not mechanically inclined and we just went through 3 days no power after an ice storm....and our generator failed. My wife was so motivated by your video, she said, 'Lets do this!' She used your links and bought everything but the batteries on Amazon. Great video....great level of instruction, my wife and I are familiar with computer-based training and your video had the right approach."
"Great website, love it! This is the best, most comprehensive website on this subject."
"Once you get done watching these videos you will be able to easily put together a backup battery bank. I have been using a backup battery bank for about 4 years and this video blew my mind. This video completely takes out the learning curve and saves you the years of mistakes and failures that I made before getting this video."
"This man's research is remarkable. I haven't been disappointed by any of his recommendations. The battery stuff is the best."
"Due to the location of our house we lose power just about every time it rains hard. Living in south Texas, when a blackout occurs at bed time the lack of air conditioning aggravates the 'no lights' situation. After the last blackout, which lasted about 3 hrs., I decided to take matters into my own hands and started researching the web. I found your site and it was a God send! Now I have a single marine battery system which is charged and maintained by a smart charger and a 1200 watt DC/AC power inverter. I also have a AA/AAA battery charger. Yes, all products you recommend on your site. All products work and are of good to excellent quality. Thank you very much for the down to earth advice on products and systems that work. Now, I have AA hand lamps in every room, the ability to run two fans and a small TV and the ability to keep our iPhones charged and batteries, pretty much all we need to sit through our weather caused blackouts. Thanks to your advice and our simple system our family 'survived' the next blackout just a week after I had completed the system. Once again thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"Steven's expertise and experience are amazing. He teaches principles, so you can apply them to any situation instead of following exact instructions. His teaching makes technical subjects easy to understand. He gives you the ability to purchase the items spoken about either online or locally using detailed descriptions and model numbers when needed. These videos (including the how to power your house from your car video) will keep the lights on and the information flowing when you experience your next blackout."
"Steve, Thanks again for the awesome podcast and instructions for building my home battery bank. Woke up this morning with no electricity. Now 2 hours later, still off. Ran the extension cord (sized to reach all areas of upstairs from basement) to Keurig first, yes, I have coffee, now on to computer and modem, now can work, and have wireless. This outage should end by noon, what a convenient addition, my in house electricity supply! So great to spend 5 minutes, running an extension cord and having power. Steve, you are the best, keep it up!"
