LASER has expanded its product portfolio by entering the portable power market under a new brand, NRGVault, with an initial launch of two models.

The PV500 (288Wh capacity) and PV1500 (1228Wh capacity) deliver a range of benefits for indoors and outdoors, home or on-the-go. Portable and lighter than previous generations of mobile power, they can be taken camping to power up lighting, run a mini-fridge, portable speaker, bug zapper and coffee maker. Caravan enthusiasts can complement existing built-in power with a portable power station.

Tradespeople and DIYers will benefit from enough power to charge cordless tools, keep powered tools running, while also keeping lights on. Drones, photographic equipment and everyday laptops and phones can also stay charged. The NRGVault range can also provide home backup in the event of a blackout.

Weighing in at just 3.8kg, the NRGVault PV500 (pictured above) has a 288Wh capacity, two AC outputs, three USB ports and a car socket. It can charge a mini-fridge, TV or MacBook Pro for four hours, or charge an iPhone or drone 17 times over.

The PV1500 (pictured below) weighs 15.8kg, has four AC outputs, six USB ports and a car socket. Ideal for power backup, light power tools and more, it can keep an electric drill going for three hours, a CPAP machine running for 22 hours, a mini fridge for 18 hours and charge an iPhone or drone 74 times over.

“Launching the NRGVault brand and our first range continues our commitment to deliver affordable but high quality technology to Australians, something we have done consistently for more than 35 years now,” LASER managing director, Chris Lau said.

“There is significant interest in mobile power given the benefits it delivers across leisure and business, home and away, but consumers need to know that they have a robust, efficient and reliable option, especially around battery safety and reliability. I’m thrilled that the NRGVault range will deliver all of this and more. Our three-year warranty is testament to our belief in the robustness of this range.”

The NRGVault range is powered by a LiFePo4 battery, which LASER claims is the safest battery type in the market. It can charge to 85% in under 90 minutes via a wall socket charge and lasts up to five times longer than lithium ion batteries. It is rated for more than 2,500 charge cycles when discharged to zero. These batteries are non-toxic, can be recycled and come with a variety of safety features built-in, including thermal protection, short circuit protection, over charge and over-discharge protection, and overcurrent and overvoltage protection.

With a Pure Sine Wave Inverter, the NRGVault range delivers steady, continuous power with minimal interference, ideal for charging sensitive electronics including laptops and appliances. Both models include an LCD information screen that shows remaining battery life, how much power is being used for individual devices and other data.  

The NRGVault PV500 (288Wh capacity) and NRGVault PV1500 (1228Wh capacity) are available at Harvey Norman and via for RRP $599.95 and $1,799.95 respectively.
