Power electronics, small appliances.
When storm emergencies hit, it’s good to have electricity, light, and a radio. It’s even better to have all those things together in one place and easy to find when the lights go out. Black & Decker gives you all the emergency essentials in one handy StormStation.

How it Works
This portable unit is equipped with a weather radio, power inverter, and detachable flashlight. When the power goes out, the StormStation’s “Find Me” light automatically turns on. Use its 25-watt inverter to power small, essential appliances, like a clock or a cordless phone to keep lines of communication open. Or charge your cell phone via the 12-volt recharging port.

Tune in news on the unit's radio.
Tune in news on the unit’s radio.
Listen to the built-in radio to stay informed about civil and natural emergencies–it tunes in AM, FM, TV1, TV2, and weather frequencies. Or remove the flashlight to help see in your darkened home.

All of these features run off the StormStation’s 12-volt rechargeable battery. To be prepared for a power outage, keep the StormStation plugged in to an electrical outlet for a full charge.

The StormStation is covered by a two-year warranty from Black & Decker.

Why Sanyo eneloop?

Sanyo eneloop rechargeables can replace an entire kitchen drawer’s worth of dry cell batteries
You already know the benefits of using conventional rechargeable batteries. But Sanyo eneloop batteries have advantages over other rechargeables that put them a step ahead.

Sanyo eneloop batteries are an excellent choice for your rechargeables because:

* They can be used right after purchase
* They consistenly yield high performance
* They have a long shelf life with no loss of energy
* They can be used everywhere
* They are environmental friendly

Self-Discharge: Why Conventional Rechargeables Don’t Cut It

Conventional rechargeable batteries have numerous advantages that make them great to use for your portable electronics. But they also come with certain disadvantages. After purchase, rechargeable batteries have to be charged before they can be used. And once charged, rechargeable batteries lose the stored energy rather fast. The charging takes quite long and rapid chargers are expensive. Not only that, but continuous charging or frequent charge to “top off” the lost energy (without complete discharge) can destroy the battery.

All these negative attributes have one root-cause: self discharge. Self-discharge means that a charged battery slowly discharges itself without any equipment consuming any current. This is the reason for rechargeable batteries being sold in a discharged state. And this is the reason that keeping charged batteries for some time did not make any sense. When you needed them, the energy was gone. Sanyo eneloop batteries have an extremely low rate of self-discharge, which means they hold their stored energy for a very long time–charge your batteries once and put them in your kitchen drawer, and over a year from now you’ll still be able to use them right away, without needing to charge them again.[/ReviewAZON]
