Zendure’s SuperBase V Is Like No Other Power Station: EV Charging Is Here

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.

Industry on the run: How the SuperBase V is personalizing power independence

Most comparable power stations, even the portable kind, are meant for a very specific set of circumstances, namely when the power goes out at home. Yes, a lot of them are suitable for off-grid use, but they also come with many limitations, like being unable to power certain devices, or only being able to charge or power a single device at a time. And you can forget EV charging or compatibility with an RV — that’s not common at all, at least not without something like Zendure’s SuperBase V, which is, frankly, one of the most versatile power solutions available.

Zendure wants every one of its customers to be truly power-independent and free of grid-based worries, and for good reason! Today’s power grid is growing increasingly unreliable in many ways, with blackouts, storm outages, and natural disasters wreaking havoc. Zendure’s SuperBase V makes it possible to keep your power on and your electronics running for days or even weeks at a time, no matter what happens. If you’re off-grid, living somewhere in the wilderness, or spending a little time away from civilization altogether, the SuperBase V is an excellent power solution for that too. Tack on the EV charging support, plus modularity and expandability thanks to Zendure’s Satellite Expansion Batteries, and it becomes apparent the SuperBase is a fully customizable power ecosystem.

Zendure SuperBase V - The Grid

With a Satellite Expansion Battery module, and solar power, paired with AC outlet power, the SuperBase V can charge at up to a maximum of 6.6-kilowatts. Plus, a 3,000-watt solar input means you can charge via connected solar panels relatively quickly and reliably. The 14 output ports, or outlets, allow you to connect to a wide range of electronics, devices, and appliances, with many plugged in and operating simultaneously. All of that is done safely, and made possible by another industry first: Zendure’s Semi-Solid-State technology. With more than 228-watt-hours per kilogram, Zendure’s expansion batteries have up to 42% more energy than comparable solutions. Plus, the battery management software accurately and safely handles power distribution and eliminates safety hazards in the event the units are damaged.

Instant power anytime, anywhere, however you need it

Let’s not forget that the SuperBase V is resting atop self-powered and sizable wheels so it’s easy to transport and move or deploy in various situations. Voice controls make adjusting the system convenient, with Alexa and Google Home compatibility. The time-of-use programming options allow you to reduce your energy bills when it’s hooked up to your home’s power sub-panel. There’s a lot to love here, but just as much if you’re spending time away from home — on the road or out in the wilds. It’s true power freedom and independence, with the option to get how much power you need, exactly how you want it.

It is one of the most portable and versatile EV chargers ever. Hook it up to your vehicle to charge up to 20 miles in 1.6 hours, reinforced by level 2 charging. You can double that mileage by adding Satellite Expansion Batteries, or grab the Zendure Smart Home Panel — available separately — to charge two vehicles at once and cut down on all of that waiting.

For van-living, RV travels, or outdoor use, you can add up to four Satellite Expansion Batteries to increase the capacity to 25.6-kilowatt-hours of energy storage, enough to supply just about any piece of gear you’d need. Those Satellite Batteries can even supply power to your RV independently and collect solar power with the right setup, and you don’t even need the main unit. Once you have the batteries and the SuperBase V, it’s completely modular, which is impressive, to say the least. Moreover, it’s great to know that if you make a mistake and leave the SuperBase at home, you can still make good use of those Expansion Batteries.

When is SuperBase V coming?

If it sounds promising, and why wouldn’t it, you’ll want to know when and where you can grab the SuperBase V.

Recently, it made an appearance at the IFA 2022 tradeshow in Berlin, and will soon be available to pre-order on Kickstarter starting September 29th 9 AM PST.

This is one of the most exciting launches of a power solution we’ve seen in a while, merely because the SuperBase V is so versatile. You can use it at home, yes, but you can also use it on the road, off-grid, at the beach, in your yard, or just about anywhere you can think of. Plus, with EV charging support, you can use it to charge your vehicles, when you could already use it to power appliances, charge electronics, and much more. It’s difficult not to get excited about power independence, and always having that access to reliable, eco-friendly, and renewable energy — like solar. There will be no more living in the dark.

Snowboarding tips you didn’t realize you needed: How to ride on ice
Not every day is a powder day so spend time learning to snowboard on ice
Snowboarders walking

OK, I'll admit it, I've become a powder snob. I realized this the other week when I was questioning whether to get on the bus to the hill. It hadn't snowed, so why bother? Well, the reason to bother was twofold. First, I was there on holiday to snowboard, and the alternative was to sit in our budget accommodation that closely resembled a shed. Second — and more importantly — it wasn't exactly bad conditions for snowboarding. OK, so there were some patches of ice, but so what?

Well, if you've ever snowboarded on ice, you know exactly how that feels. It's hard snowboarding on ice. It's even harder falling on ice. But icy patches and icy days are unavoidable if you want to maximize your resort days every winter. What's more, they're good for you. Not every day is lined with freshies — if only, eh? — and knowing how to snowboard in mixed conditions is an important part of progressing as a snowboarder. But just how do you snowboard on ice? Here are some snowboarding tips for those conditions — for veterans and even snowboarding for beginners.

Bouldering: A beginner’s guide to this full-body workout
Bouldering is a great way to get some exercise and build strength. Here's what you need to know
A man bouldering.

Rock climbing can be a little intimidating, with all the steep inclines, ropes, and requisite knots. But we’re not all trying to free solo El Capitan like Alex Honnold. Many of us just want to get some quality exercise somewhere other than the weight room.
Bouldering is a tremendous full-body workout that’s fun, improves balance and agility, and requires relatively little in terms of gear. It’s a type of rock climbing, but is generally rope-free, meaning you don’t have to learn how to belay. As such, there’s often more lateral movement than vertical, but it’s wonderfully demanding all the same. Keep reading to learn how to boulder.

How to boulder as a beginner
Find a route: Start easy if you’ve never climbed before. At the bouldering gym, getting started is as easy as finding a route. At most bouldering centers, the routes are color-coded by level of difficulty. The easier routes will have larger holds and less demanding aspects. As you work your way up, you’ll notice the holds get smaller, more spread out, and tend to cover trickier rock faces and inclines.
Chalk up: Get comfortable chalking while you’re climbing as you’ll want to keep your palms as blister-free as possible. Practice dunking each hand into the bag, leaving the other hand available for stability.
Rest: Rest is key, especially when you start to take on longer routes that involve 30, 50, or 100 or more holds. Take advantage of spots on said routes where you can relax at least most of your body either by balancing or wedging yourself in position.
Practice routes: Going through a route mentally is a great way to plan your attack at the gym. Imagine where your major limbs will go as you move from hold to hold. Soon, your trained eyes will see the smallest of outcroppings and dents in the rock as places you could clasp onto. And nobody is going to dock you points early on if you don't stick fully to the route map. Use all the holds you need early on until you get a feel for it.

Snowboard gear 101: Sintered vs extruded – which snowboard base is right for you?

Snowboarder making powder turn

Snowboarding is all about the glide. As you gain momentum and rip turns, there's an exhilaration like little else. Add in beautiful mountain surroundings, and sliding on snow is a seminal experience. But what makes a snowboard so slippery? Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) has a unique combination of abrasion resistance and low friction. That makes it an ideal material for a snowboard's base, enabling lap after lap of high-speed fun. It just works.

Snowboarders have two base options when picking a new board: sintered and extruded. Each has its pluses and minuses and suits a particular rider. So what's the difference between the two? Let's dive in.
