5 Ways to Improve Your Next Road Trip with the HomePower ONE

Family road trips are a staple of many people’s childhoods. Long hours crammed into the car, following a GPS, and trying to keep the kids distracted with anything possible to prevent constant questions about your arrival time. As we rely more and more on our electronic devices, it can be even more difficult to have a stressful road trip. Whether you’re trying to keep everyone’s devices charged at once with only one charging port, worrying about traveling with food, or getting constant reminders about work that needs to be completed while you’re stuck in traffic, we have a solution for you! 

Generark’s HomePower ONE is commonly used as an emergency backup battery during weather emergencies and blackouts but has many practical applications in many other daily situations, as well. Our portable power station can bring some ease to your next road trip. Here are five suggestions for taking the HomePower ONE on the road!

1. Charge Your Devices 

Going on long road trips is tiring in and of itself, but adding kids to the mix can call for an even greater headache. If you rely on smartphones or tablets to keep the kids continuously occupied, the HomePower ONE is the perfect solution. Instead of constantly checking battery life and switching charging cables between your GPS and the kids’ tablet, you can keep all your electronics fully charged through the HomePower ONE throughout your entire trip. Never hear the words “are we there yet,” again!

2. Establish an Internet Connection

Now that your electronics are charged and ready, odds are you’ll be quickly using up the entirety of your data plan. Instead of generating a long phone bill, establish your very own Internet connection. The HomePower ONE can power a router and modem to keep your devices connected to a WiFi network.

3. Create a Mobile Office

Road trips often coincide with a holiday or long weekend, which means many other families are bound to also be hitting the road. Instead of making the decision between finishing up some much-needed work or hitting the road early to beat the traffic, take the office on the road with you! With the ability to charge your devices and establish an Internet connection, you can kill two birds with one stone and work from the car!

4. Power a Mini-Cooler

If you’re going on a long trip that calls for snacks or you need to bring kitchen necessities to a rental home, you can forget about worrying about ice packs and coolers. The HomePower ONE can easily bring power to a mini-refrigerator or small power-run cooler. You can also transition this set-up into a hotel room, campsite, or rental home once you reach your destination!

5. Recharge from the Car

The HomePower ONE can power a wide range of devices, as you can see from this list, and can provide up to seven days of essential power on one charge! If you forget to charge it before leaving the house or are powering multiple high-wattage items at once, you can recharge your HomePower ONE while it’s in use, straight from your car charging port! 


Bring the HomePower ONE portable power station on the road with your family the next time you head out on a long trip to keep everyone occupied and entertained! Whether you need to charge electronic devices or want to power a mini-refrigerator, there are many practical ways the HomePower ONE can make your vacation even more relaxing! The best part may just be that you can charge it directly from your car while it’s still in use.
