Zendure’s SuperBase V Is Like No Other Power Station: EV Charging Is Here
Zendure SuperBase V power station product image on blank background.

This content was produced in partnership with Zendure.
The portable power station market is more competitive than ever, but Zendure is changing things up right out of the gate with the SuperBase V. Not only does it double as a home backup power solution -- and portable power station -- but it can also operate as an EV charger for cars, RVs, and beyond. It's the ultimate companion for those going on a long road trip or trekking into the wilderness, but it's also a necessary home appliance for keeping the power on during an outage. Especially thanks to the fact that it features a 6.4 to 64-kilowatt-hour capacity, which is massive for something of this caliber, and enough to power a plethora of devices and appliances.

The SuperBase V can operate as a zero-downtime, uninterruptible power supply or UPS. What does that mean? When connected to your home grid, which is quite easy to do, it can continue supplying power to the electronics you need most. No more waiting for the power to come back during an outage. A single SBV unit can provide up to 3,800-watts of power, and two units can be chained together to increase the capacity up to 7,600-watts. That's enough to power a home, and just about everything in it, with minimal lifestyle changes -- such as a washer, dryer, heater, refrigerator, and more. You can also use the system to power devices wherever you want, like a projector and game console while outside in your yard, or power tools while doing some DIY projects. Charge mobile devices, small electronics, party equipment like outdoor speakers, and so much more. Or, as an EV charger, it can charge your vehicle for up to 20 miles of use in 1.6 hours, reinforced by level 2 charging, which is absolutely essential for when you just need to eke out enough juice to get home or reach a more substantial charging station. If you already have a gas generator hooked up to your sub-panel, you can swap out for the SuperBase V in under 60 seconds, and with a single cable. Perhaps more exciting is that the SuperBase V is more eco-friendly than traditional generators and produces no harmful emissions. Keep reading to learn why the SuperBase V is one of the most versatile power solutions to hit the market to date.
