How Our Most Expensive Survival Product Actually Sold Out in the First 48 Hours…
It’s Back for at Least a Few Days.
It was the push of a button.
That’s all it took. The email was sent. “Not everyone can afford this.”
“I know, but we keep getting calls about it,” I said, sipping my coffee. “We should let people know it’s ready.”
“Got it. The email is… sent.”
And just like that… we SOLD OUT in two days. We couldn’t believe it.
That’s how, one fateful August, we let a handful of our best customers lay eyes on our new secret product that we’d been working on…
And in a few minutes, orders came flooding in.
By email. 📱
By phone. ☎️
On our website. 💻
Even by old fashioned mail! 📨
Readers couldn’t believe that with our new breakthrough portable device:
- Produce an endless supply of life-saving electricity when you need it most – and without gas, fumes or noise.
- You’ll be able to power lights… preserve food… recharge cell phones and computers… or keep critical medical devices going.
- Your home will be a little island of light and warmth in a storm – be it natural or man-made.
But here’s what surprised me most…
Instead of Just One…
Hundreds of Solar Generators Were All Gone in the First 48 Hours
And a Handful of Customers Even Bought Two or Three
Well, that went better than we hoped.
Obviously we were thrilled. Everyone here high-fived.
Except our inventory manager.
“You did WHAT?!”
We sold out really fast. That’s great!
“No it’s not great!! Now we don’t have ANY. It’ll take us MONTHS to get another supply. You were supposed to make this LAST. You were supposed to just test the waters!”
Ehh. Whoops. Sorry. We’re sold out. I don’t know what to say. 😎
But the inventory manager was right. 🤔
For days and weeks, customers called and emailed, asking where our solar generator had gone and when could they buy one.
How can I get one? They each asked. What do you mean you can’t send one to me? I want to buy it! Isn’t that how this works?!
Sorry, I wish it could. But we’re out. 100% out. We’re working hard to build more and get them in stock, but we didn’t know this would happen so fast.
Fast Forward 3 Months…
We Got HUNDREDS More And Sold Out Immediately (Again)
I asked her about it recently. (She’s had some time to calm her nerves about it) 🙂
She told me, “It was really tough. It took us one to two years to hold on to any stock. We kept selling out every time we talked about it.”
Sure enough, sale #2 came. And we sold out.
Not only that but…
This Time We Had a Problem…
A “Waiting List” of Customers Had Already Reserved Most of the Next Batch
By now customers from our previous products were well aware that we had this great big product that everyone was talking about.
AND they were painfully aware that we couldn’t hold onto any.
We. Kept. Selling. Out.
Probably because we kept getting reviews like this one we got recently:
“Worth its weight in GOLD!!!!
Last Friday we had a freak lightning storm hit taking down the local power. The Electric Co. had no estimate as to when the power would be back up.
I pulled out my Patriot Power Generator and immediately connected my fridge, a light, and 4 cell phones & kept them charged.
The power was restored after 6 hours. I left the Patriot Power Generator running to see how far it would go. It ran for another 7 hours before the low charge alarm started sounding.
I then disconnected the fridge & light and began charging the unit back to a full charge which took approx. 6 hours! My family was very impressed! Thank you for a wonderful, easy to use product!!!!” Jim C
For the first several months, customers would visit our order page, see the note we left (“Sorry, we’re all out”) and call us in a fit.
So we agreed to take down names of anyone who wanted to be notified when we’d have more.
We even put a little notification form on our website (I mean, we love talking on the phone, but we thought this might be easier).
And that list filled up with THOUSANDS of people.
We finally did get a handful back in stock a few months later. And instead of having a massive “round three” of sales, we simply notified the waiting list.
There went half our stock.
And then we opened the “doors” (on our website).
There went our other half.
Every Time We Got More in Stock…
We Sent Out an Email That Said “Finally Back in Stock”… And Sold Out Instantly (Again)
And That Kept Happening for a Year and a Half
“Finally Back in Stock.” I mean, at least the email basically wrote itself. 😏
But this eason, we finally built enough of these incredible devices to meet demand.
More than we ever have before.
And our warehouse guys know the drill now.
They’re incredible at meeting our demand. (Also, we’re finally notifying them in advance when we’re about to have a big sale on this incredible product, so we don’t catch them off guard 😆😆😆)
That’s why it’s my privilege to say…
This Solar “Generator” Works Indoors
Solar generators are a smart choice because they produce an endless supply of life-saving electricity when you need it most – and without gas, fumes or noise.
That’s why our top recommendation in portable solar generators is the Patriot Power Generator 1500.
It’s a breakthrough NEW device that generates up to 1,500 continuous watts of clean, quiet, and FREE renewable power.
That’s enough to power lights for safety and comfort, your computer, TV, or cell phone. Even small appliances like a small freezer or critical medical device that will sustain your family during a power outage.
Imagine how much peace of mind you’ll have right away when you get your own. Because if a crisis hits and your family asks, “When will the power come back on?” you’ll calmly reassure them that they’re safe and they will have plenty of electricity to power the critical items.
You’ll be able to power lights… preserve food… recharge cell phones and computers… or keep critical medical devices going.
Your home will be a little island of light and warmth in a storm – be it natural or man-made.
Listen, nobody can predict the future. None of us know exactly when or how an attack on our electrical grid will hit.
But from everything we see, it could be soon and it could be devastating.

What Can My Generator Power?
The answer is… pretty much anything. If you can plug it into your wall, you can plug it into your generator. It may not run your old air conditioner from 1970, but other than that it will run almost any device in your house. That’s why we have an insane 100% money-back guarantee for 365-days.
It’s Easy to Set Up Your Generator
Just take it out of the box and turn it on. Your generator comes about 95% fully charged. And you can recharge your generator using our solar panel that comes with it and the free, endless power of the sun. Or just plug it into your wall if that’s more convenient.
The Incredible Engineering “Under the Hood”
With only three switches on the whole device, the amount of engineering crammed behind the simple-to-use panel is amazing. The device also comes with a 100-watt, foldable solar panel, a 25-foot extension cord, FREE SHIPPING, and more.
Endless Power from the Sun?
I feel ready. It’s sitting ready to go at a moments notice! Best money I ever spent.
I live in a hurricane area and having a quality solar generator makes our family feel very secure. I have not used it but I did test it and all of the features tested fine.
I have had several power outages lately, giving me a chance to try it out. It has run my refrigerator for 8 hours on two different outages. It ran my desktop computer and accessories for about the same time.
I was thinking about a solar generator because the noise and fumes from my gas generator was getting on my nerves, then I got the email from 4Patriots. What sold me was the fact that I could charge and discharge this generator once a day every day for more than five years. The warranty- who in the world gives a warranty like that? No one else. The compactness, weight and all those features, outstanding! And finally, the portability factor even including the solar panels. Now I have used the system to run most of my hand tools, a small refrigerator, a desktop computer, a laptop and cell phones and had no problems with over or under power / load. The best part is that most of the tests I did at night and inside. Very quiet. Hooking up the solar panels was a breeze and the unit began charging with no problems. This unit is well worth the money, a great piece of gear to have and an awesome warranty to go with it. I very highly recommend the Patriot Generator 1500.
Comforting source of Emergency Power- This solar generator gives peace of mind that in an emergency; there would be some power. It wouldn’t be a full substitute for electricity, but it could provide sufficient power to charge appliances to allow for cooking meals, charging phones, keeping food cold, using a little heater, etc. It could be taken with you during an evacuation, but only if in a vehicle, not on foot. And, of course, to keep the charge, the sun would need to shine through. It is a comforting item to have. There will be some power to survive. Thank you for your work and products!
I have been looking at generators. I bought this one because gas might not be available. This one is safe because of the solar power. It is renewable power. It is easy to set up.
I am very happy with my purchase of the Power Generator. I use it as an independent system in my small second cabin on my property and I can power my sewing machine, lights, and computer. This is a safer alternative than running a 100′ extension cord which tripped the power breaker each time it rained. I now have power rain or shine.
I was very pleased and relieved that the generator was easy to assemble. I even got the generator to produce electricity to light a lamp. The unit is not heavy and very portable. The solar panels are very light and easy to set up. I feel much better that I can face a power failure. I think the cost of the generator was reasonable. Thank you very much for providing this unit.
I decided to invest in this generator after watching the video online. It made sense to be prepared instead of waiting for a disaster to hit. My daughter and I were living in Florida when Charlie hit and left without electricity for a week. I moved to Tennessee shortly after that stating, “I would never go thru that again”. Guess what? Tennessee also gets storms from time to time that have left us in the dark. We are living in scary times and believe we need to have a plan of action rather than regret! I also ordered a year supply of food and the water filter. I feel great knowing I took these steps to protect my family!
I haven’t had the need to fully utilize this generator, but I have tested it on my refrigerator with excellent results. I ran the refrigerator for several hours to measure the battery drain with good results. I also tested the solar panels to recharge the device and all worked well.
I feel I have done as much as I can to take care of my family and the Patriot solar generator was the one prep item I needed to truly sleep better! Hope I never have to use it, but at least I’ve got all the bases covered. It’s a little spendy for most people, but if you can scrape together the funds. I suggest to anyone who can, buy one! Quality stuff we’re talking about here.
