In places without grid power, Wattsun offers a new solution: pop up power. Wattsun is revolutionary for off-grid energy needs. It is a portable, plug and play power supply that can be increased in capacity by stacking units. This makes Wattsun suitable for numerous applications, from charging camera batteries to supplying power for set lighting. To have continuous portable power available on any filming location will become a piece of cake!
