Lion Energy is the new name of Humless, which is marketed and sold through Food For Health International. We like the new branding and think Lion products from a Quality Assurance standpoint are actually ahead of Goal Zero’s–just the packaging has been a little behind the times. So far Lion Energy has only released a high-end battery generator, the L-1500, but we have heard they plan on bringing out a new line of personal solar products in time.
The L-1500 is a relatively small device measuring less than a cubic foot and weighing only 38 pounds. That’s small enough to take just about anywhere. The L-1500 accepts both AC and DC input, which means it can be plugged right into a normal power outlet or be hooked up to a solar energy source. For output, the L-1500 has 4 USB connections, a cigarette lighter, and two 110-220 volt AC ports. The L-1500 is a smart way to have extra power in case the power goes out for an extended period of time. And, its light weight and ability to charge with solar power or an optional hand crank, make it ideal for taking on any outing. We are excited to see how Lion Energy evolves its product line.
