Was looking through a tool/parts catalog and I saw this and thought it would be really good for a survival situation. The 2546 Wagan Tech e Power Cube 1500W is a portable generator powered by solar panels that fold out from the body of the cube. The Solar cube could be a rarer version of the standard portable generator that would allow for sustained power during the day. Although the generator would need to charge instead of quickly generating energy with a fuel powered generator and having reduced use at night. You would have a certain amount charge to work with at night and never need fuel, as well as being able to charge battery's for other things. You can also expand the available power by hooking up extra batteries and solar panels adding to the amount of charge you can have during the day and night.

i like the idea of this but how common are they.
I don't exactly know but they do have different models made by different companies so i don't think the concept is completely new, I first saw the Solar Cube when looking through a Tool Catalog. Power G also has a model, and there are also multiple small carry able versions that just need a small solar panel to hook up to. I have also seen a few models that are larger and hook up to a solar array you fold up.

Like I said I don't know how rare they are in real life but I think the large ones should definitely be fairly rare and the small ones could be a bit more readily available.

Do you think this ranks among vehicles or between things.
Frankly I think we should in the game slip solar panels or moving.
I saw the generators and other things that have already been inserted into the game works the same goal.
For sure this project would be worth a try.
They would be with a very rare part (or expensive) to make this generator of.
produced would be less sound, ie, he / she could have the house all night with no current threats zombies
