No Eishkom? You need the Eishbox!

Loadshedding is a fact of life in South Africa. With the country’s current power crisis, it has become essential to have a reliable backup power supply to get you through loadshedding or unplanned power outages. The Eishbox 426 (420W) portable power station is a great option for your home or office, or even outdoor use where you have no power supply. It provides emergency backup power when Eskom fails you for all your devices under 400W.  For even higher power needs, Probe also supplies the Eishbox 740W, 1000W and 2000W models.

Let’s take a closer look at this amazing device and all its features.

Multiple charging options for maximum convenience

The Eishbox can be charged via grid power, solar panels or a vehicle 12V socket. This means that you no longer have to rely solely on grid power for charging your unit. With a large capacity Li-Ion battery pack including a battery management system (BMS), the Eishbox offers around 800 charging cycles.

UPS functionality

The Eishbox functions similarly to a traditional UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). Simply plug the Eishbox into your power source and plug your devices into the unit. The unit will automatically switch over to power your equipment during a power outage or loadshedding. Once grid power returns, the Eishbox will automatically begin to trickle-charge itself until it reaches full capacity again.

Long lasting battery life

The Eishbox has enough battery capacity to keep a 32” LCD TV playing for 5 hours, or a laptop for 8 hours. And when that aircon is off, you can rely on a fan going for over 6 hours.  The Eishbox also comes with built-in safety features like overcharge and short circuit protection that ensure long lasting performance and reliability even after prolonged use.

Portable and lightweight design

The Eishbox 426 is lightweight and compact, which makes it easy to carry around wherever you go. Whether you’re camping out in the wilderness or just need some extra power for your laptop while on the go, this amazing device has got you covered! The sleek design also makes it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use – so don’t worry about not having access to electricity when you need it most.

If you are looking for an effective way to keep your devices powered during load shedding then the Eishbox portable power station should be at the top of your list.  With its multiple charging options, UPS functionality, long lasting battery life and portable design – this amazing device is sure to meet all of your emergency energy backup needs.  For even more power, you may want to consider the larger versions available.
