Default The Powerstation..

Picked up one of these at Costco for $80.00US. It includes a pretty good (150psi) air compressor, jumper cables, two 12v power outlets, a 400w, inverter, flashlight, onboard recharge, and a battery meter and air guage.

It's about the size of a small duffel bag, and looks pretty well-designed. The air compressor got one of the motorhome tires filled really fast.

Nice gizmo.

I got something similer at Sams Club. I don't have the inverter but everything else. I thought the tire pump would be good to have and the jumper cables would be great in an emergency. It also has a 12V cigarette plug, a cell phone charger and a light. The battery is rated at 450Watts

It's nice to have a air compressor that you don't have to plug in to use.

Can you tell us about how much it weighs? That would be handy to have in the Stowaway box.

I didn't weigh mine but I would guess it weighs about 20#
By the way I said 450 watts I mean 450 amps

Thanks! We would have plenty of room for one of those. We'll definitely look into it.
