Portable Lithium Ion Station to Charge Twizy?

Came across these Lithium Ion power stations and wondered if one would be strong enough to provide power to a twizy?


and here’s a slightly cheaper 1000w find on ebay - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1000W-444Wh-Portable-Solar-Panel-Generator-Power-Supply-Energy-Storage-Battery-/202308450431?roken=cUgayN

Obligatory - I know nothing about generators or portable power stations, so apologies if i’m asking the impossible.

Don’t dream it’s over :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

400 Wh, I dont think so.
It would be cheaper to buy a second hand Chevy Volt/Vauxhall Ampera traction battery for €600, at least you would get 16.0 kWh lithium-ion power station.

Yeah don’t think these things provide enough juice to justify carrying around one in the Twizy. I’ll stay carrying the type 2 convertor and extension cable for now :stuck_out_tongue:

As has been pointed out, the Twizy battery holds about 6000Wh, while the solar one only holds about 400Wh, so it wouldn’t put much in (about 3 miles worth in our experience). Perhaps more critical the solar battery has a peak output of 1200W while the Twizy charger requires nearly 2000W. It’s a shame that the Twizy cannot (yet) be recharged from variable voltage/current DC.

If you have the latest version of the Powerbox you can adjust the input power to the charger. But this unit wouldn’t get you very far
