Worlds first portable power station with off-grid communication for camping, emergencies, and more
Omnicharge is back for a 4th crowdfunding campaign with its most versatile, powerful, and portable power solution for all your off-grid adventures and emergency situations.
BE READY FOR ANY ADVENTURE, EVEN THE UNPREDICTABLE ONES
We are so used to having power and connectivity in our lives, bringing our devices everywhere. But when we venture off-grid, power and connectivity can be quite unreliable. That’s why we designed Omni Off-Grid; to help you prepare for any situation.
OFF-GRID BACKUP POWER
ADVANCED PORTABLE POWER FOR
YOUR OFF-GRID ADVENTURES
Our team has spent a lot of effort engineering a next-generation power station for today’s digital adventurers. Powerful, without compromising mobility and versatility.
– MOST VERSATILE POWER SOLUTION –
Omni Off-Grid is equipped with all the power ports you need to charge up all your devices. Each port is designed with the latest fast charging technology.
– HIGH POWERED FAST CHARGING –
With 16 individual power ports, each designed with the highest output power for your devices. Versatile enough for any situation like camping, off-site work, or emergencies.
– FAST & FLEXIBLE RECHARGING –
We designed the Omni Off-Grid to charge from as many options as possible so you’ll never feel stranded in any situation. You can directly plug your solar panels, use our dedicated charger or even use your own USB-C charger!
– UNLIMITED POWER EXPANSION –
And for those that are power users or just want peace of mind and never worry about running out of backup power, you can easily hook up additional backup batteries to design your own power solution for your off-grid adventures or prepare for any emergency!

Engineered from the ground up, we provide a compact power station that you can take anywhere! The Omni Off-Grid has a similar capacity with more features, yet 40% smaller than the competition. Making it more versatile and portable.
OMNI CONNECT ADD-ON MODULE
FOR ANY OFF-GRID SITUATION
We’ve integrated the latest in long range off-grid wireless technologies. Perfect for outdoor adventures, but also critical for emergency situations like blackouts or natural disasters. The Omni Connect Module comes with 4 Omni Connect devices and can be used INDEPENDENTLY from the Omni Off-Grid Station.
– LONG RANGE CONNECTIVITY SOLUTION –
Voice and text messages transmitted through Omni Connect uses a new communication standard called LoRA; that allows you to send and receive messages using extraordinarily little power at very long range. You can read more about LoRA HERE.
– BUILD A PRIVATE OFF-GRID NETWORK –
Omni Connect doesn’t require any 4g, wifi, or cloud network; it is your own private communication channel. Perfect for off-grid camping or any emergencies when the grid is down.
Privately communicate with your family and friends; the encryption and decryption are handled on your smartphone using 128bit AES, so only you and the people you share with will receive your text and voice messages
– EXTEND THE EDGE OF CONNECTIVITY –
THROUGH MESH NETWORKING
Expand your network’s reach with others in the community; for each Omni connect device in use, the range of the community mesh expands.
All Omni Connect devices operate on the same frequency, so everyone within range can act as relays for others. Your smartphone handles the encryption and decryption, and people it is relaying through can’t decrypt the message.
OMNI CONNECT APP
THROUGH THE OMNICHARGE APP
The Omnicharge mobile app provides an INTUITIVE interface that allows you to interact with your Omni Off-Grid and Omni Connect. It also allows you to manage off-grid channels, track locations, and privately message your family and friends.
NO CLOUD NETWORK NECESSARY
ALL DATA IS STORED ON YOUR SMARTPHONE
