Are you prepared for Hurricane Season?

Hurricane Isaac has been a grim reminder that the end of summer does not mean the end of hurricane season. According to NOAA both the Atlantic and Pacific hurricane seasons officially last through the end of November. Are you prepared should the next major storm strike your area?

 

Best Emergency RadioThe Best Emergency Radio from Hammacher Schlemmer keeps you informed of  what’s going on around you even in the worst of conditions.  This emergency radio earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it delivered a superior combination of sound quality, playback time, and reception. Analysts turned the units’ dynamos for one minute to power the rechargeable batteries. The radios were turned on until power was exhausted and The Best Emergency Radio lasted 8.7X longer than lesser models. The Best model’s large, ergonomic hand crank required little effort to turn and, unlike other radios with analog tuners, it has an easy-to-adjust digital tuner that received 33% more radio stations than competing radios and produced crisp, clear sound of AM and FM stations. The Best model allowed analysts to hear every word of the seven NOAA Weather Bands, unlike other models that produced distorted, static-filled audio. The Best model’s superior features include an integrated LED flashlight, USB port for charging smartphones, mini-USB cable, and a built-in solar panel for supplemental power.

Solar Power GeneratorUnlike noisy gas or propane generators that produce noxious fumes, The Solar Power Generator is silent and provides zero-emission back up power without relying on volatile fuels. When fully charged, the 1250-watt battery powers a refrigerator for up to four days, a television for 35 hours, or a laptop for up to 30 hours.

 

The Solar Power Generator

Whether it’s a summer thunderstorm, wintertime blizzard, or devastating hurricane, being without power is a major inconvenience. Gain peace of mind with The Solar Power generator form Hammacher Schlemmer.

This is the generator that’s powered by the sun and provides emergency electricity for any home appliance. Unlike noisy gas or propane generators that produce noxious fumes, this advanced model is silent and provides zero-emission back up power without relying on volatile fuels. When fully charged, the 1250-watt battery powers a refrigerator for up to four days, a television for 35 hours, or a laptop for up to 30 hours. Two 30-watt monocrystalline solar panels charge the generator to full capacity in 20 hours of direct sunlight and they connect to the unit via 8′-long cords, allowing the generator to be used indoors while the solar panels collect sunlight outdoors. An integrated LCD panel shows the wattage coming into and going out of the generator and displays the amount of power left in the generator’s battery. Up to eight solar panels (two included; additional panels sold below) connect to the generator at once to accelerate recharging or provide endless power to a refrigerator or any appliance. Also recharges via AC in 16 hours to ensure preparedness before a power failure.

The Solar Power Generator lets you remain comfortable inside, until your electricity can be restored. Don’t brave the weather without one!
