New Green Power Systems from Humless

Provo - HUMLESS, LLC released its Humless Sentinel and Humless Roadrunner power systems. These clean energy products create a new class of green energy generator and power supply that is silent, portable and easy to use, with no dependence on fossil fuel. Based on Advanced Lithium+ design, Humless technology is two-thirds lighter, lasts five times longer and is about 20 percent more efficient than older lead acid battery technology.

“Test marketing of these products has been hugely successful,” says Glenn Jakins, Humless CEO. “Early adopters not only use Humless as a portable emergency generator for home use, but are finding it powerful enough for mobile and remote work environments.”

Both the Sentinel and Roadrunner are silent and environmentally friendly. Both incorporate universal 110VAC, 12VDC and USB connectors. They are rechargeable via solar, wind, hydroelectric, hand crank or other clean power, or may be plugged into a wall jack. Power supply connectors are equally versatile for connection to a standard extension cord, computer equipment, lighting or any power-hungry appliance. The units are safe for indoor and outdoor use in dozens of applications for a mobile world. Recharge and discharge may be done simultaneously.

Sentinel is the first alternative-fuel generator to combine a 10-year shelf life and long-lasting charge time with universal input/output connectivity. The expandable 1000W (50Ah) Sentinel can be carried over the shoulder or stored on the shelf. The Sentinel’s little brother, the 200W (10Ah) Humless Roadrunner, provides extra portability using the same design for smaller jobs.
