Generators costs hundreds of dollars or even thousands if you want a high-end model with a big tank. Sometimes you can’t get around the need for a generator — for example, if you live in an area with lots of storms that knock out your power all the time. But for most people, a generator isn’t really necessary.

If you want something to serve as a backup power source every now and then when the power goes out, or to charge your gear when you go camping, there’s a new option out there that costs a fraction of what you’ll pay for a generator. It’s also portable, so it’s a better option than a traditional UPS backup battery.
