Portable QRP Ham Radio & PowerFilm Lightsaver Max
Today we are taking about portable power for man portable QRP ham radio. For some time now, I have been testing the PowerFilm Lightsaver Max with a variety of popular portable QRP radios. Often what these portable ham radios are lacking, is a lightweight and reliable portable power supply, which is easy to use, and airplane friendly.
The PowerFilm Lightsaver Max is a Hybrid Solar panel and power bank, with built-in 60wh lithium ion battery pack. This is perfect for radios like the Elecraft KX2, KX3, Yaesu FT-817, FT-818, Xiegu G90, X5105, Lab599 Discovery TX-500, and QRPVer Minion.
Make sure to watch the video to the end. There is going to be a sneak peek QRP QSO on SSB, using the Lab599 Discovery TX-500 with the Lightsaver Max.
