This rugged connector is widely used and has plenty of adapters on the market - perfect for both standard and DIY applications. It also includes a car accessory adapter to help get you started!

Need more power? Easily daisy-chain multiple WaterLily 12V turbines to supercharge your charge rate. Perfect for commercial or power hungry applications, as well as permanent installations.

- Amazon Customer Review -

Producing usable power in the backcountry is only part of the battle. You also need a way to store that energy for later use. Luckily for the outdoor enthusiast on your list this year, the Omnicharge Omni 20 offers a great solution.

The Omni 20 is a power bank that can intelligently power most devices, all at the same time. Equipped with fast-charging USB ports, a 100W AC outlet, and a high quality 20,400 mAh / 73 WH battery, the Omni 20 keeps you powered on the go. It also provides real-time power management capabilities allowing you to monitor everything on with your Omnicharge. The OLED display allows you to easily monitor what is going on with the device and it allows you to change the voltage output to ensure safe charging for all of your devices.

One of the great things about the Omni 20 is that it allows you to charge multiple devices at once using USB, DC, and AC/HVDC outputs. This makes it ideal for not only charging your smartphone, but your laptop or DSLR camera as well.

You can charge the Omni 20 with its AC wall plug or a DC power source. This makes it a great companion for your WaterLily 12V unit. You can use the Omni 20 to power your devices during the day, and then hook it up to your WaterLily at night to recharge the battery!


"Perfect for camping or home outages to keep your devices running."

- Amazon Customer Review -

There are a number of great options out there for portable power stations, and it was hard for us to choose just one. Instead we decided to add 2 of our favorites to this guide to give you more options.

The Yeti 150 Portable Power Station from Goal Zero packs a big punch in a small package. The rechargeable 168WH lead acid battery can charge up to 5 devices at once through USB, AC, and DC outputs. The USB outlets are great for charging smaller devices such as phones and tablets, while the AC out will allow you to charge smaller laptop and DSLR camera batteries. The DC out is a great option for powering a wide variety of devices.

The built in display allows you to easily see how much power you have remaining and it’s portable size give it an advantage over many similar power stations with similar outputs. You can charge the battery at home from a regular AC wall plug, or via the car charger adapter included with your WaterLily 12V!
