Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that it’s been a hell of a few weeks when it comes to the weather here in the U.S. Extreme weather like what much of the States have been experiencing isn’t just inconvenient, it can be dangerous. Losing power for an hour or two generally isn’t the end of the world, but losing it for days can be devastating, especially in the middle of winter. Keeping a portable power station or whole-house generator around, though, can help make your life a lot easier in the midst of a crisis. Even better, in less dramatic times, portable generators are also great companions for things like camping trips and tailgates, too!

Generators and power stations come with a wide range of features and can vary in price from reasonable to eye-popping. Luckily, Walmart is stealthily selling a handful of the helpful tools at big discounts right now
