Easy to Use
The Forty2’s clamshell design is incredibly easy to use. How easy? On a recent trip to Haiti we communicated the simple instructions to a pastor despite neither of us speaking the other’s language. To charge, simply open the case and expose the panels to sky. To use, plug your devices into the built in electrical outlets and turn it on.
There is no all-in-one system that can compare to the solar charging capabilities of the Forty2.
|Solar Generator||Max Solar Charge||Time to Fully Recharge Battery|
|Peppermint Forty2 Pro||180 watts||3 – 4 hours|
|Goal Zero Yeti 400 Kit||20 watts||40 – 80 hours|
|Aspect Solar Sunsocket||60 watts||5 – 9 hours|
The Forty2 has two 90 watt solar panels made of Monocrystalline silicon, the most efficient solar panel material in the industry. You will not find this much power in any other kit, and certainly not in an all-in-one system. You may also charge the Forty2 from an outlet with the wall charger (sold separately).
The Forty2 comes in three storage sizes: 500, 1,000, and 2,000 watt hours, in light weight Lithium Ion battery technology. To put that into perspective, see the chart below on how long you can power your devices.
The Forty2 provides the same North American wall outlet power* (110VAC, 50Hz) that you get at home from 2 outlets located on the front of the unit. Capable of delivering 900 watts of continuous power, or 1,800 watts during a 2-3 second surge, the Forty2 can charge small devices like a laptop many times over or power larger devices like a TV for hours. It also has 2 USB ports for charging your phone or tablet just as fast as they would at home. * Universal outlets (220VAC, 60Hz) are also available.
The thing that makes the Forty2 stand out among the crowd is its portability. Forget about carrying multiple cases and making multiple trips, using either the built-in handle or the shoulder carry strap (sold separately), the entire unit can be moved by one person. When you need to move again there’s no teardown or setup – close the unit and move on.
Designed for mobile and off-grid applications, the Forty2’s durable exterior is built to handle the bumps and bruises of travel and nature. Throw it in the back of your pickup truck, leave it out in the rain, it’s ready.
