KEMP, Texas, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Larson Electronics has announced the release of a portable power supply that provides 24 or more hours of clean and quiet power on a single charge. Capable of powering a wide variety of devices that require 120 VAC current, the BPLI-2K-120 Portable Power Supply offers convenient and quiet power that can be taken anywhere normal grid power is unavailable or impractical.


The BPLI-2K-120 portable power supply from Larson Electronics is an ideal solution for operators who require the ability to power devices ranging from video cameras to lighting or computers without having to rely on standard grid power. Designed for reliability and long run times, this portable power supply features a 1,200 watt hour lithium ion battery for long life and steady output and a wheeled housing with telescoping handle for easy transport. This power supply is rated for 2,000 watts continuous use and 4,000 watt peak output and can provide power for up to 24+ hours depending upon the load the unit is place under. The onboard lithium ion battery is rated for 2,000 charge cycles at an average 75% depth discharge, meaning the unit will provide thousands of charge and discharge cycles before the battery loses peak effectiveness. Illuminated indicators allow operators to easily monitor performance and include charging status, power output, runtime, and battery charge level status. This unit can be recharged from any standard 120 VAC power outlet, and produces 120 VAC output distributed through 4 onboard GFCI protected outlets to allow connecting multiple devices. This unit recharges in a short amount of time, with 70 minutes of charge time being the average and 90 minutes being the maximum, allowing operators to return the unit to service quickly between charge cycles. This portable power supply also features a heavy duty water resistant housing constructed of polyethylene for high durability, and a telescoping handle and wheels that operate much the same as wheeled luggage. Operators can transport the unit in the back seat of car or in the trunk, then simply pull the unit out and extend the handle to roll it to the desired location. The entire assembly weighs only 58 lbs and is approximately the size of a large suitcase, making it ideal for operators who need a power supply that can be easily transported and deployed, and the noiseless and fume free operation ensure a clean and reliable source of power that wont interfere with sensitive devices like cameras and recording equipment. The BPLI-2K-120 is an ideal portable power distribution system for general contractors, electricians, carpenters, police, fire departments, rental companies, video and film crews, outdoor vendors and more who need the ability to run equipment independently of standard grid power and prefer a noiseless power source that wont interfere with their operations.

"The BPLI-2K-120 lithium ion battery driven power supply harnesses the lightweight durability of the latest technology for commercial and industrial applications," said Rob Bresnahan with  "I think of this lithium ion battery based power supply as a hassle free battery.  This virtual electronic generator delivers 120 Volts for 2000 watts silently with a 90 minute maximum recharge time.   A sealed lead acid battery requires several hours to recharge before it is ready for action and large capacity sealed lead acid batteries can weigh well over 100 pounds.  SLA batteries need maintainers and proper attention to discharge cycles to maximize their life. Finally, operators need an inverter to generate 120 volt power from a 12 volt battery.  This lithium ion battery driven power supply doesn't present any of those challenges.  I think of this as a silent generator that only needs refueling for 90 minutes every so often."
