Power, or rather electricity, can be unreliable any time of the year, not just during the winter or stormy months down south — hello, hurricanes. It means the best time to buy a portable power solution for backup or for any kind of power scenario is not when you need it most but beforehand. Plan ahead, and you won’t experience those huge outages. It’s even more important if you’re planning to live off-grid, going exploring, or living your best van life, RV life, or glamping. You’ll need power. End of story.
