Portable Safe, Silent, and Renewable Power
When you need to power things longer, the Safari ME Expansion Pack (ME-XP) gives you 3X the energy storage capacity than the Safari ME alone.
Access To Power When You Need It:
- More Stored Energy – 3X the stored energy when you connect the ME-XP expansion pack to the Safari ME for nearly 3,000Wh total
- Easy to Connect – Just plug it into the back of the Safari ME
- Maintenance Free – Retains charge for up to 1 year
*Must be used with the Safari ME™ to have power
The ME-XP expansion pack gives you 3X the storage capacity of the battery inside the main Lion Safari ME solar generator when its connected to the ME (Safari ME is required).
Charge Retention: Up to 2 Years
Min Charge Time with Main Unit: 4.5 hours
Cycle Life: 3,500+
Dimensions: 16.7" x 9.6" x 9.8"
Weight: 44.5 lbs
The Safari ME and XP are the latest in Lithium battery technology for portable power needs. They replace traditional noisy gas generators with the safest Lithium batteries on the market today. They are light weight for the amount of power and stored energy they have. Think of it as a safe, silent, renewable generator and extra energy storage without the need for gas, pollution or all that weight.
The ME has a continuous 2,000W of power output (watts of power output) and over 900Wh (922 watt hours) of stored energy. The ME-XP adds nearly another 2,050Wh more when connected to the ME. That means you can power devices that require up to 2000W of power for various periods of time. To calculate how long the ME can power a device, use this formula: Wh / W = Estimated Run Time. For example, if the device requires 50W of power and the ME has 922Wh then the device can be powered for approximately 8.5 hours (922 / 50 = 18.44) If you use that same device but now with the XP connected to the ME, you'll have 2,970Wh to use in this formula (2,970 / 50 = 59.4).
The Safari ME outputs 2,000W and can power some AC units depending upon the brand and the watts each AC unit requires. Like with most devices, the power consumption varies from brand to brand and model to model. So you'll need to determine if the AC unit is less than 2,000W.Check out our videos tab for a detailed review on the ME. Remember, if you connect the XP to the ME then you get an extra 2,048Wh of stored energy to power things longer.
The Safari ME and XP are a great energy storage combo unit for solar power from solar panels. Together they can store 2,970Wh (watt hrs) of energy.
Yes, most power tools will work just fine with the ME and XP. Some require more energy at startup (a surge) and may need to have a "soft start" component added to the ME that can be found at home improvement, electric supply, or hardware stores.
