Company Summary

Peppermint Energy has created the Forty2: a portable energy source that’s as powerful as you are. We combine energy generation, management, and storage to make the perfect outlet for those who don’t want to or can’t rely on grid power.

At half the cost of a gas generator, we’re perfect for those who want to try solar energy for the first time or who need a new source of energy.

In just a few hours, the Forty2 has enough energy to run a small fridge, a fan, a dozen LED lights, a flat screen TV, your laptop and phone for the whole day!

We make outlets where there are none, so that you can charge your thing while camping, tailgating, or on vacation. Just plug in whatever device you need and charge it wherever and whenever you need to!

We have a modular design, which means that you can connect 2, 4, 10, heck, up to 20 Forty2's together to get the power you need. We also have 3 different sizes of our Milo solar changes, which are lighter, travel-friendly solar chargers.
