Introduction

Hurricane Sandy showed us many things. One of the important lessons learned was that power isn't always available at the flick of a switch. Many families suffered weeks of prolonged power outages. Think about not being able to turn lights on or even stay in contact with your friends and family. Do you have a cell phone? How long will it last without power? Think about that if you've never had a power outage.

Many people did plan ahead and have portable gas generators or more robust systems for backup. Some even had grid tied solar systems for their houses, but those were useless as the grid was down. Gas generators were great, except for the time when you had to get replacement gasoline. Long lines and shortages were the norm for many days. There are few technology that promise power without the need for fuel. None of them come close to the benefit of solar for a distributed application. After the storm, people realized that solar was a good backup plan for charging their portable devices.

The sun is always out in the sky, even if it is behind clouds. Pair a solar system up with a battery to collect the power when not charging and you've got yourself a good backup plan. EnerPlex, an Ascent Solar company, specializes in making products for the solar market. Kickr IV is their newest, flexible, solar panel system for powering USB capable devices. The Jumpr is the battery storage for saving that solar energy while your not using it. The pair go together so well that we thought to review both at the same time. Did we mention these panels are flexible?
