So it's a big battery / small UPS?

There are so many of these on amazon, just pay attention to the wh and cost to not get ripped off. Got a 1280wh that can power my gaming pc @ 500-600 watts for 3 hours but i didnt get it for that.

If we throw it, will it come back? When i am outside i use a solar roof coupled with batery... Shadow to make a nap and some extra energy for the night. (and remind me that i have to fit it back on the truck)

This will most likely be extremely overpriced. Comparable solutions will be much cheaper and if you want to flex a Mjolnir as a decorative piece, there are far cheaper options for that too. The only people this is aimed at is posers!

@rl66 that would be a funny feat. @Crazy Joe i have more respect for folks buying something like this, then buying (overpriced) clothing with noticeable logos of the brand, while not getting any money from them for advertising..

you're fundamentally right. but this is actually a good product (if overpriced) if it's anything like ROG Loki or ROG Thor psu quality. the handle is definitely a gimmick the pc market needs to understand the utility of power stations/ups. not only will this work outdoors but it will extend and protect your pc indoors living in California where the utilities can interrupt power during hot days in fire season i have a much more capable ups (uninterruptable power supply) but it's "Antec Beige", heavy as F, and not really outdoor friendly.

While I understand the usefulness of these types of products, especially in countries with regular power outages (we in The Netherlands rarely experience these, usually only if someone accidentally cuts a power cable or a power distribution "house" suffers damage, so these would be of limited use here), there are several other options that have the same features but are not burdened by the ROG tax. I would advise people to go for those and save a bit of money. Maybe invest in a actual Mjolnir prop i.s.o this barely worthy of the name one. Anker has a few available, but so do other brands. The prices depend on how much power you need from one, so from around 180 dollars for a small cheap one (Goal Zero Yeti 200X), all the way up to 4000 dollars for a huge one (Anker SOLIX F3800) and several options in between.

Sounds like, "you dont need to buy a "pink" bike, because they cost more than the other colors". would you also tell that to "your" daughter/niece, or buy the pink one for xmas? just because i dont, doesnt mean no one (is willing to shell out more). some prefer to buy what the like, vs the one thats cheaper..

i understand the thought. Holland is fabulous in every sense of the word, but so is California. the fact is, separate from our perceptions of need, AC power and transmission is far from regular and even further from perfection. while my ups had undoubtedly protected my system, i didn't need the battery back-up feature until the firestorms of 2020 & 2021 when record fires impacted me 200 miles away. the Netherlands is just as poised to take hits from climate change (if not more so) as California. when there is no disaster an ups provides pure, conditioned, & regulated power that is impossible for utilities to provide. this is important because every solid state device is susceptible to line surges, voltage spike, and "dirty" transmission irregularities. this is a cumulative effect so you're right but there's more to this than you think
