Product Description

Power electronics, small appliances.
Power electronics, small appliances.
When storm emergencies hit, it's good to have electricity, light, and a radio. It's even better to have all those things together in one place and easy to find when the lights go out. Black & Decker gives you all the emergency essentials in one handy StormStation.

How it Works
This portable unit is equipped with a weather radio, power inverter, and detachable flashlight. When the power goes out, the StormStation's "Find Me" light automatically turns on. Use its 25-watt inverter to power small, essential appliances, like a clock or a cordless phone to keep lines of communication open. Or charge your cell phone via the 12-volt recharging port.

Tune in news on the unit's radio.
Tune in news on the unit's radio.
Listen to the built-in radio to stay informed about civil and natural emergencies--it tunes in AM, FM, TV1, TV2, and weather frequencies. Or remove the flashlight to help see in your darkened home.

All of these features run off the StormStation's 12-volt rechargeable battery. To be prepared for a power outage, keep the StormStation plugged in to an electrical outlet for a full charge.

The StormStation is covered by a two-year warranty from Black & Decker.

One of the previous reviewers misunderstood the directions for the Storm Station. The Storm Station is designed to be left plugged in.


Apparently, though, that means that you should only unplug it if you don't want to use it as a backup power source (i.e. if you are simply storing it or transporting it).

A better clarification comes from the Black and Decker Web Page itself: To be prepared for a power outage, keep the Storm Station plugged into an electrical outlet to maintain 100 percent of its charge. That way when the power goes out the Storm Station will have all of its battery power to help you during a power outage.

So leave it plugged in! I got mine on Christmas Eve and we had a power outage on Christmas at 10pm. The kids were scared, and I simply grabbed the Storm Station (the Find Me Light had already activated), turned on the High Powered Room Light, lit a kerosene lantern, turned off the High Powered Room Light, and charged my cell phone. We used the rechargeable flashlight as well (the other flashlight by our bed died within 5 minutes). I then called the power company to report the outage. After the power came on an hour later, I plugged the Storm Station back in. I'm going to keep it plugged in and rely on it again!

I'm very happy with the Black and Decker Power Station. Thanks to my girls for giving it to me!

This product has everything you need for a power outage. I was out of power for a week and the batteries lasted the whole time. When you do lose power everything you need is right there, no more searching through a dark house. The great thing about this is that you get TV stations to listen to so you can hear the local weatherman and know what is going on. It also has a spot to plug in things like cell phone chargers. It made the inconvenience of a power outage much easier.

Last Christmas, I bought 5 of these. While most of our friends and family here in St. Pete have just started using them for the hurricane season, we have had ours plugged in since day 1. Although we have had no hurricanes yet, our electricity has gone out twice in the early morning hours, and the Storm Station light came on and awoke me once, and I noticed it one time on an middle-of-the-night trip to the bathroom. This unit warned us of the outage, and saved us from sleeping past our wake up time, being late for work, etc. I disagree with the post w/ only one star. When the electricity goes out, one needs light, and communication (cell phone AND radio/TV band). Who cares if you have to go w/o coffee for one morning? During a hurricane, I want a cocktail anyway, not coffee. I have a very high regard for this product.

I ordered one of these this week because I found it $30 less on Amazon than in WalMart. However, after receiving the product, I made some interesting discoveries that caused me to return it.

1. The item appears well built. However, after a complete charge, the DC to AC converter would only put out ~100VAC instead of 120VAC as described.

2. I could not bring in any weather channels. Other weather radios in the house work fine. However, this does not.

3. I also discovered that the 120VAC and 12VDC outlets will not work unless there is an actual power outage. I assumed that there was a pass-through for them (like a UPS can have items plugged into it while it charges the UPS) so you could keep a spare cell phone and car adapter plugged in the 12VDC and it would charge both the storm station and the phone at the same time.

All in all, I am disappointed in this. I'm not sure what the problem was with the 120VAC, but I really didn't like the idea of the 120VAC and 12VDC outlets not working unless there is NO power to the unit.

Just my .02

Call me "preparedness girl." Because of my family situation over the last years I have become, if not obsessed with preparing for problems and disasters, then at least highly concerned. And over the last years I have been forced to deal with more than my share of power failures. So when I saw this item advertised on television I decided that if it did half of what it promised it'd still be a good thing to have in the house. As it turns out, it does everything as promised.

I won't say that it will give you a lot of power, but it does give you light enough to work by, will power small appliances such as a home phone, and has a recharging outlet for things like cell phones. It also provides a radio with several useful bands as well as standard AM/FM ones. this makes it an all-around great item to have standing by if you live in an area where storms can knock out your power for several hours or even a day. The charge won't last forever, so if you're in a place where outages can be long-term, this is more like a band-aid. But it's a pretty nice one. Seems sturdy, and provides a detachable flashlight that's handy to have around all the time, not just during outages. You always know where to find it and that it'll work for you. Provided you've remembered to put it back on the unit!

As a sidebar here, I'd like to suggest two things that might make this item even more useful: First, get a hand-cranked radio just for entertainment purposes. Don't waste the charge on this if you think the power outage is going to be long-term. Second, always have a good, basic telephone on hand somewhere. Just one that will run on the current provided by the phone line. Again, why waste the charge on this unit just for a phone? Let this be part of your lifeline for emergencies and use it wisely.
