The portable solar power station market is robust with innovations. Both leading players and small-time makers are busy designing unique and practical power stations with modular profiles. Here, we have an innovative concept of DIY expandable solar power stations from a start-up called, Runhood.
Unlike other modular power stations, the Runhood modular portable power stations appear in a handful of interfaces and battery modules that are swappable. You can combine the modules to build your own DIY solar power stations as per your power and portability requirements.
A 324Wh lithium battery bar – called EB324 – is the central piece of Runhood’s invention of DIY portable power stations. Along with the battery pack, the brand avails three different interfaces for power delivery, branded as HE600, UE256, and AC80. As you see, these power modules integrate different inverters and an assortment of charging outlets.
Runhood unveiled the stylish DIY modular power station on Indiegogo in May 2022. It could attract some serious eyeballs and gather a decent amount in the crowdfunding campaign. As of now, it is available on the brand’s website, and here is our take on Runhood’s impressive modular DIY solar power packs.

RUNHOOD MODULAR PORTABLE POWER STATIONS
The Runhood modular power station is, of course, a highly innovative product of its kind. It gives you the freedom to build a variety of go-to modular power stations once you buy a full bundle of all its modules, which are compatible with each other.
As stated above, the 324Wh battery bar (EB324) is the central part of the modular power station. You can simply attach it to all the included power modules, which are basically inverter boxes with different charging outlets, MPPT solar charge controllers, and other components.
HE600 is the main power module with a regular AC inverter of 600 watts. It can absorb two pieces of the EB324 battery packs in its assigned slots. The best part is that you can just swap a drained battery bar with a fully charged unit even while the system is in operation with no interruption to the connected load.
This is when you can attach the same battery bar to other power modules (AC80 and UE256) to run your small appliances and juice up your handsets on the go. You can recharge all these devices with solar panels via the included ports.
It means you no longer need to carry the big power stations on the move. You can use the smaller power modules with the battery bar for emergency off-grid power for your small devices and handsets.
The brand has the power modules on sale in a variety of combinations, giving you the right choice to build a DIY modular power station.
