Windstorm makes benefits of all-terrain Generator-Lights clear

Severe weather allows first-hand experience with our portable-power-&-light units.

During November 2015, a severe wind storm closed our office for a day and left several staff members without power for the whole week. During the outage, Sara and Joan (former employee) borrowed Lentry® Systems from the shop (Ventry Solutions’ factory). While Sara only needed hers for a day, Joan's was used for five days while her family waited for the power to be turned back on.

Wow, the Lentry Systems were a vast improvement over flashlights and candles! The unit Joan borrowed (and is pictured) was model 2STARX with the older 2000W generator and tall V-Star LED. The generator provided 1600 watts of power and the light provided 20,000 lumens. Since then, all 2000W generators have been upgraded to 2200W.

Before running extension cords inside for light, pictures were taken to show that a Lentry Light can be used outdoors to illuminate the interior of a structure. The next day, on a walk through the neighborhood, a neighbor asked if there had been an incident nearby. From two blocks away, she had seen “an incredibly bright light that must have lit the whole block!”

With the Lentry Generator Light, Sara and Joan were able to run lamps, save the food in fridges and freezers, run temporary heat, and recharge cell phones. After five days without power, the generator was even used to fire up a desktop computer. As advertised, computer-safe power was provided—and much appreciated.

This experience gave us valuable insight into all the generator benefits, not just the lights (which we usually focus on). It reminded us that portable, all-terrain Lentry Systems are more than just amazing bright lights; the backup power they provide is a big deal too!

So cold outside, the LED lit up my breath!

Very cold!

Coffee vs extension cord chaos!

Coffee made the choas worthwhile.
