A portable, electrical power station has an insulated, wheeled housing containing a self-contained, self-sustaining electrical power generating system. The system employs a key operated ignition switch which activates an inverter. The inverter converts direct current received from a battery to alternating current and sends that current to a motor which then powers an alternator. The alternator generates electric current to the inverter. Electricity is contemporaneously sent from the inverter to electrical outlets located on an outer wall of the
housing. An unlimited variety of electrical devices and appliances can then be powered by simply plugging into the outlets.

Detailed Description Of The Invention
[0015] Portable electrical power station 1 of the present invention comprises portable, easily moveable housing 2,
shown as being a rectangular box shape. The invention however, should not be considered restricted to the shape or configuration
of the housing. Housing 2 has vent openings 4 and 6 for permitting venting of heat build-up internally of the housing, and wheels 7, 8, and 9 and manual handle 10 for ready transporting the housing. Electrical outlets 12 and 14 are positioned on rear outside wall 11 of housing 2. Key
ignition switch 16 is positioned on side outside wall 13. Internal insulation 17 is provided along interior surfaces of housing 2 to muffle sound generated by station1. Housing 2 itself will be made of lightweight material, to make transporting station 1 easy.
[0016] Located in space 19 within housing 2 is the self contained electrical power generating system 20 of the invention.
System 20 comprises direct electrical current battery 22, inverter 24 for converting direct current to alternating current,
electrical matter 26 for powering rotatable belt 28, which in turn operates electrical alternator 30, which generates alternating current.
[0017] The circuitry and relation of the components can easily be seen in FIG.4. There is a wired connection between
ignition switch 16 and inverter 24 and between the ignition switch and battery 22. Battery 22 is connected to inverter 24
at its negative terminal and at its positive terminal to alternator 30. Inverter 24 provides alternating electrical current directly
to motor22 and to outlet 12, connected in series to outlet 14.
[0018] Activation of key operated ignition switch 16 starts inverter 24 and the inverter, having converted DC current
received from battery 22 to AC current, sends that current to motor 26. Motor 26 powers rotatable belt 28 which then turns
alternator 30 which charges battery 22. Once operating, alternator 30 begins generating electric current to inverter 24.
Electrical power is contemporaneously sent from inverter 24 to 120 watt outlets 12 and 14. Outlets 12 and 14 are then
available to power any lamp,heater, television, radio, computer, or other electrical appliance.
[0019] In the configuration shown in FIG. 3, battery 22, alternator 30, and motor 26 are positioned within and on bottom base 36 of housing 2.
Inverter 24 is located above these components on shelf 38. Top 39 of housing 2 is configured to be removable to allow easy access to inverter 24; and shelf 38 can also be removable to gain access to the components located on bottom base36. Once again, the invention is not to be considered restricted to placement or configuration of the components in electrical power generating system 20 within housing 2. Equivalent, convenient, practical component configuration is contemplated.
[0020] It has been found that electrical power generating station 20 operates efficiently and effectively with a 12 volt battery 22 or, optimally, two connected 12 volt batteries, a 2500 or 5000 watt inverter 24, a 6 amp motor 26, and a 105 volt alternator 30. However, it is also anticipated that components employing different electrical outputs can be substituted.
[0021] Electrical power station 1 is started easily and quickly by simply turning key ignition 16. It is relatively quiet and does not require any gasoline or other fuel and emits no harmful fumes or gases.
[0022] The portable nature of electrical power station 1 allows it to be employed in many different environments including, but not limited to forests, beaches, open fields, or any remote location in which there is no available source of electricity. Power station 1 is especially valuable for use in
emergency situations like power outages or during natural disasters. Once power station1 with 2500 watt inverter 24 is activated, an unlimited variety of electrical devices can be plugged into outlets 12 and 14, e.g. lamps, radios, and televisions. When 5000 watt inverter 24 is used, it can supply electricity to power computers and other electrical appliances.
[0023] Certain novel features and components of this invention are disclosed in detail in order to make the invention clear in at least one form thereof. However, it is to be clearly understood that the invention as disclosed is not necessarily limited to the exact form and details as disclosed, since it is apparent that various modifications and changes may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention.
