“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
― Benjamin Franklin
The Goal Zero is perhaps the cleanest and nicest looking portable pack. It is a hefty 103 pds. but it does have a 100AH battery. This power pack is one of the few that is already configured for a proprietary solar panel, but it is possible to use other panels and connectors. Until somebody comes up with a lighter battery and a pure sine wave inverter this power pack gets my vote.
The Xantrex is more portable than most power packs. The storage battery at on;ly 51 AH is limited. The inverter is a hefty 1500 watts but with only a 51 AH battery you will not be running very long. Overall it is a good system and I give it an A+ for portability.
