About Lion Energy
The founder of Humless, Glenn Jakins, was camping one night when a fellow camper fired up his noisy generator. Unhappy that this generator was destroying the silence of the mountain night, Glenn decided to make a generator that was silent. This is how the Humless name and product were born.
Recently, Humless began allowing private labeling. Thus was born the Lion Energy brand (actually, Lion Energy powered by Humless). For a long time, Food For Health has had a loose relationship with Humless. Eventually, Food For Health decided a line of personal power generators would be a great addition to its emergency food products so it partnered with Humless to build the L-1500. Lion Energy products are now distributed by Food For Health. (It’s important to note that Humless continues to own and make the products distributed by Food for Health under the Lion Energy brand, and maintains the trademarks, patents and names associated with the Humless 1500 series.)
Before the Humless-to-Lion-Energy transformation, their products clearly didn’t have the flash that their competitor Goal Zero’s products have. But the new L-1500 (akin to the previous product, the Humless Sentinel) looks like it was built by the design team at Apple. And, according to company sources, they claim their underlying technology is better. We’ll leave that debate to our individual product reviews.
However, the L-1500 is the only product currently offered on the Lion Energy site, and we hope the company continues to develop a line of personal solar products.
Using advanced lithium technology, Lion products have a wide range of uses. From their website these include: backup power, camping generator, emergency planning, secondary power, solar generator, CPAP battery, alternative power source, super quiet generator, solar portable power, emergency battery, “silence-on-the-set generator,” disaster relief, portable satellite access system, silent public address system, mountain climbing communications, NASA safe space shuttle photo shoot, airport emergency communications, and humanitarian (NGO) off-grid power.
