When things go sideways, will you be prepared? 4Patriots has you covered with preparedness products you can use NOW… and that could save your life later.

Their NEW solar generator, the Patriot Power Generator 2000X, has double the capacity and is expandable so that you can run big appliances — like your fridge — even longer. It uses the endless free power of the sun to also power other devices like an electric blanket, microwave, RV air conditioner or even an electric wheelchair. Plus, it’s expandable and comes with a free solar panel.

The Patriot Power Generator includes twelve outlets — four of which are AC — so you can power more devices at once. And two USB-C outlets allow you to charge your phone 20X faster than a regular plug.

Best of all, this NEW solar generator is fume-free. Safe to use inside. And never needs gas — ever!
