New enCUBE Generator Produces Zero Emissions; Offers Solar Charging

Battery-powered inverter from Kohler Power Equipment delivers clean power, both indoors and out

KOHLER, Wis. – November 17, 2015 – Kohler Power Equipment continues to expand its portable generator offering with the introduction of enCUBE (energy cube), a battery-powered, indoor/outdoor inverter generator ideal for camping, tailgating, backup at home, light construction sites and most other locations where clean and reliable power is needed. enCUBE provides 1,440 watts of continuous power and can surge up to 3,600 watts for thee milliseconds or 1,800 watts for ten minutes to support motor starting. enCUBE comes with multiple outlets, including a pair each of USB ports for smaller electronic devices, 12V DC ports for medium-sized electronics, and 120V AC outlets for large electronics, appliances and an assortment of tools. The new generator can be charged with a standard 120V AC wall outlet or any solar panel. It offers silent operation, requires no fuel, and produces zero emissions.

“Producing zero emissions is a significant benefit because – in addition to being a more sustainable option – it offer the flexibility of being able to use the unit both indoors and outdoors,” said Manny Rumao, marketing manager – portable products for Kohler Power Equipment. “enCUBE is a compact power plant on wheels. Whether it’s powering a refrigerator during an outage or a circular saw at a worksite, the unit provides fast and easy access to clean power in a manner that’s easier on the environment. We anticipate strong response to enCUBE from the growing number of builders and contractors seeking green products and other sustainable solutions for the jobsite.”

enCUBE is an ideal alternative to popular 2000 watt engine-driven generator models. It has a comparable price, but eliminates the noise, gasoline, toxic emissions, and oil changes required with those units. enCUBE was designed around safety and convenience. In addition to being safe for the environment, it also protects users with built-in GFCI and guards against overloading and overheating for safe and reliable performance.

enCUBE is easy to move and position due to two large built-in rubber wheels, a retractable pull handle, and recessed lifting handles. In addition to its mobility and variety of power options, enCUBE incorporates a number of other unique features, such as a built-in storage lid for keys, power cords and other personal items. The unit also integrates an LED screen, which provides continuous details about charging input, power output, battery status and run-time to help users maximize performance.

“Without question, we live in a plugged-in society, so the demand for sustainable and reliable portable power is only going to grow,” Rumao added. “Our objective with enCUBE was to develop a portable power solution that’s easy to use, easy on the environment, and delivers the wide variety of power options that end users are looking for today. This new generator checks all of these boxes and more.”
