Description FAQ

The new redesigned Lion Energy Ascent Solar Generator is one of the best portable power sources available. Providing a clean, safe and mobile power outlet anywhere you want or need power. A 1500 watt continuous 2000 watt peek pure sine wave AC power inverter gives you the ability to run high wattage devices and appliances. It can also provide direct 12v DC power and has four USB outlets. These power output options are served by the state of the art lithium iron (LFP) based internal battery which has a power capacity up to 600 watt hours (50AH Amp hour) of electricity on a full charge.

What sets the Lion Energy Ascent apart and really makes it better than other battery packs or portable power sources is the lithium iron phosphate ( LiFePO4) battery that resides inside the Ascent's case. Not only is it much lighter than lead acid batteries but the lithium battery will provide more power per pound than sealed lead acid batteries which are the type primarily used in other comparable battery powerpack systems. Technical jargon aside, it simply means more power output and total power capacity in a smaller lighter weight box.

When it comes to life expectancy a lithium battery is the champ in both the number of times it can be charged and discharged and the life in years it will last in storage and use. The Lion Energy Ascent's battery can be charged 3-6 times more in terms of cycle life, (2000+ cycles vs 400-800 cycles) compared to a similar capacity lead acid and even other types of lithium batteries. The Lion Energy's lithium battery can also sit in storage for a year or more without needing to be recharged which compared to a lead acid battery would require a charge every few months or would need to be plugged in on a constant trickle charge to maintain it's health. More powerpack batteries of the lead acid variety are lost to neglect from not being maintained in a charged state than from being worn out from actual use. The Ascent's lithium battery technology preserves your investment without the need to babysit it when it's not in use. Just charge it minimally once a year and it will be ready to use when you need it. If kept charged and well maintained it could last up to 7+ years or more while awaiting service or up to 5-7 years of daily use.

The Ascent can be charged multiple ways from it's built in charger using a regular AC wall outlet and the internal 20 amp charger, or from the included 2x 100 watt folding solar panels or any other 12V (nominal) DC power sources such as your own 12v solar panel, a pedal or hand crank dynamo, possibly a wind turbine, a car power outlet, or other DC powered generating devices (purchased separately). The Ascent stores the captured power in a state of the art Lithium Battery pack to be taken with you and used whenever or whereever you might need it.

The Ascent's built in 1500 watt pure sine 110V AC inverter provides power to two outlets for use. It also includes one 12V DC 10 Amp car type power outlets and one 12 volt DC 20 Amp Anderson Powerpole connectors often used by HAM radio operators and emergency responders. Built in are 4 x 2.1A USB ports to allow you to easily charge or power whatever USB type portable electronic devices or appliances you have. Whether you need to power a laptop, computer, medical device like a CPAP or BiPAP, run a fan or lights during an emergency or power outage, or simply watch a movie in the great outdoors, the Lion Energy Ascent will give you the power you need when you need it.

With the whole power pack weighing in at 46 lbs, it’s transportable enough to take wherever you want to go without the noise, mess or danger of fuels such as gasoline or the harmful emissions they create. The Ascent provides power on demand that is quiet and safe enough to use inside your home, car, RV, trailer or tent.

No generator that we know of is fuelless but capturing power from the sun with a solar panel and storing it in the Ascent's lithium battery is as pretty close to a real fuel-less generator and it couldn't be easier to use - just plug a 12v nominal up to 400 watt solar panel (2x 100w panels included, additional 100w solar panel optionally available) into the provided input ports and on a good sunny day you can fully recharge the battery from empty to full in 2-3 hours! Smaller solar panels work too but may take longer to recharge the battery.

The internal lithium battery-pack makes the Ascent a reliable and portable power source. With an estimated up to 7+ year battery life and a charge cycle rating of over 2,000 charges, the Lion Energy Ascent can be counted on when you need it most. The Ascent's battery is acid and lead-free and can sit in storage for over a year without being charged. The Ascent will store well in your closet and always be ready to power your appliances and devices when you need to use them most or just far from the grid.

Your Ascent comes partially charged and can be used right out of the box. (Recharge it once received to fully charge it)

Product Contents (What comes in the box)

1 x Lion Energy Ascent comes with the following accessories:

  • AC power cord for charging
  • 2x 100 watt folding solar panel chainable
  • 1x 21' cable to connect solar panel to input port

Inputs (1) Socket for AC charge cord (100-240VAC), (1) DC 30A Anderson Powerpole power connectors (400 watts combined maximum solar panels all input ports @ 15v)

Unit Weight: 46 lbs - Shipping Weight: 51 lbs Shipping: Currently USA Ground only - Dimensions: (LxWxH) 15.9" x 9.4" x 13.4"

To set the battery's power capacity expectation for the Ascent, the amount of power a 600 watt hour battery can produce before needing to be recharged is sufficient to run a 60 watt incandescent light bulb for 10 hours or a 120 watt electric fan for about 5 hours. It will run an average sized computer laptop for about 8 hours. It will power about 2-3 loads of laundry in an efficient front loader washing machine. It will run a grain mill or a blender for the few minutes it takes to use those appliances and will still have power left over to run other devices. It can power a refrigerator or a freezer during a power outage but to extend the time it is recommended to plug in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes and then unplug it and wait 3-6 hours before you plug it in again and repeat the process for as long as power remains available. Then recharge the Ascent and repeat the process.
