Whether you’re the type to go camping for fun or just want to be prepared in an emergency, a power generator is a must-buy. Luckily for you, one of our favorite portable power stations — the Vtoman FlashSpeed 1500 — is on sale with a huge $500 price cut. Originally $1,300, you can grab it for just $799 while this deal lasts.
As the name might suggest, the FlashSpeed 1500 has an impressive 1,548 watt-hour capacity that will easily last you a long time when charging peripherals like laptops or speakers. You can get around 130 full recharges of a phone if you need to, and with the maximum 3,000-watt output, you could even run some high-capacity devices like a coffee maker or a microwave. It can also be expanded up to 3,096Wh with the Vtoman 1,548Wh battery, which is going for a discounted price of $699 rather than its usual price of $999.
As for what you can charge, the FlashSpeed 1500 has 12 ports, with some interesting additions. There are, of course, the typical things you’d expect, such as two 100-watt USB-C ports, four USB ports, a DC port and three AC ports. What’s interesting, though, is that it even has a port for jump-starting your car, making it a great companion to take with you when you go anywhere, especially camping or off-roading. It also has a bright flashlight in the back that will come in handy when being out in the wild, and it even has three different brightness levels, a pulsing mode and an SOS light mode.
As for charging, you have three options: You can power it from a standard house outlet, a DC barrel port or solar panels. You can also use all three to charge simultaneously, so you could potentially charge the total 1,500Wh capacity in an impressive 45 minutes — that speed is the main reason it is one of our top picks. The FlashSpeed 1500 also has an AC passthrough feature so you can connect it to a computer or TV, and it can function as an uninterruptible power supply, which makes the FlashSpeed 1500 a versatile portable power station.
