LASER, Australia’s home-grown consumer electronics success story, has today unveiled its NRGVault-branded range of portable power stations. Featuring two inaugural models, the PV500 (288Wh capacity) and PV1500 (1228Wh capacity), NRGVault is committed to delivering Australians a range of compact, simple to use, powerful, safe and affordable portable power stations that keep people powered and connected by delivering flexible charging options to power multiple devices.
NRGVault’s portable power stations deliver a wide range of benefits indoors and outdoors, at home or on the go. Portable and lighter than previous generations of mobile power, it is a great accessory to take camping to power up lighting, run a mini-fridge, portable speaker, bug zapper and even a coffee maker. Road trippers can connect a portable fridge to keep the drinks chilled and powered devices to keep the kids entertained, while caravanning enthusiasts can complement existing built-in power with a portable power station so that coffee machines, music, fans and lighting can be taken outside of the caravan as the camp is set up for the evening.
Tradespeople and DIYers will benefit from enough power to keep a small worksite going including charging cordless tools, and running powered tools while also keeping the lights going and phones and laptops charged. For those who are always out and on the go, it also ensures drones, photographic equipment and everyday laptops and phones stay charged.
Also of growing concern, the NRGVault range can provide home backup in the event of a blackout to keep your home fridge going, and lights on, power your TV, phones and laptops and even keep the internet on.
Weighing in at just 3.8kgs, the NRGVault PV500 has a 288Wh capacity, 2 x AC outputs, 3 x USB ports and a car socket. Ideal for laptops, mobile devices and small appliances it can charge a mini-fridge, TV or MacBook Pro for four hours, or charge an iPhone or drone 17 times over. Meanwhile, the PV1500 weighs 15.8kgs and has 4 x AC outputs, 6 x USB ports and a car socket. Ideal for power backup, light power tools and more, it can keep an electric drill going for three hours, a CPAP machine going for 22 hours, a mini fridge for 18 hours and charge an iPhone or drone 74 times over.
“Launching the NRGVault brand and our first range continues our commitment to deliver affordable but high quality technology to Australians, something we have done consistently for more than 35 years now. There is significant interest in mobile power given the benefits it delivers across leisure and business, home and away, but consumers need to know that they have a robust, efficient and reliable option, especially around battery safety and reliability, and I’m thrilled that the NRGVault range will deliver all of this and more. Our three year warranty is a testament to our belief in the robustness of this range.” said Chris Lau, Managing Director, LASER.
The NRGVault range is powered by a LiFePo4 Battery, the safest battery type in use. It can charge to 85% in under 90 minutes via a wall socket charge and lasts up to five times longer than lithium-ion batteries. It is the safest battery on the market even if dropped, pierced or crushed, and is rated for more than 2,500 charge cycles when discharged to zero. These batteries are non-toxic, can be recycled and come with a variety of safety features built-in, including thermal protection, short circuit protection, overcharge and over-discharge protection, and overcurrent and overvoltage protection. The range comes with a standard three year warranty.
With a Pure Sine Wave Inverter, the NRGVault range delivers steady, continuous power with minimal interference, meaning consumers can charge sensitive electronics including laptops and various appliances with peace of mind.
Both models include a bright LCD information screen so that the power station’s remaining battery life, information on how much power is being used for individual devices and other data can be easily viewed.
In addition to traditional charging via a wall socket, the NRGVault range also comes with available additional accessories including a 12V DC cable for car charging and an option for solar panel charging to ensure a consistent ability to recharge even when off-the-grid, a compelling option when camping or caravanning.
