The Colorado start-up company Boulder Power Technologies is offering portable power products that use Lithium Ion-based technology. The company’s first product, the PowerTap 2000, is available in limited quantities within the local Colorado market.
The PowerTap 2000 utilizes Lithium Ion battery technology to deliver portable power where and when needed, with zero emissions and without the fumes and noise of gas-powered generators. It provides up to 6000 watts of power (2000 watts continuously) for applications ranging from construction sites and mobile businesses to events and facility support. The unit is fully re-charged through a standard household electrical outlet in 90 minutes. It provides up to 12 hours of uninterrupted power for power tools, water sump pumps and lighting and sound systems, for example.
