When I got to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro, my camera completely died. It’s because freezing weather drains your battery power by 30-60%, so the only photo I have from the summit is one someone else snapped for me.
And when I was camping overnight on the ice in Antarctica, I would have given anything for a heated blanket, and a charge for my phone to capture the moment.
But beyond the things that would have been nice, having a source of power when you’re enduring severe outdoor conditions can end up saving your life.
Well, a team of outdoor lovers have invented an incredible power station which can work in minus 40 degree weather, and is completely waterproof.
This is the world’s first portable power station which can break through severe outdoor conditions, working in rain, snow, wind, or dust storms. It works in both extremely cold and hot temperatures (- 40 °C to 50 °C / – 40 ° F – 122 ° F), and over 5,000 meters above sea level.
Can you imagine being able to charge your phone on top of Kilimanjaro, or boil a cup of coffee while camping in Antarctica, out on the ice?!
The DynaYak N35 is the first ever power station of its kind. And you can get it for 30% off right now on Indiegogo.

So how powerful is a power station which can be fully submerged in water, and come out still working? And how heavy is it for being able to withstand extreme heat, rain and duststorms, to still be able to travel with?
The N35 has exceptional specs, and no corners have been cut to make it work in extreme environments, while still remaining powerful and portable for a safe and reliable source of power.
It has a 1200Wh capacity and 1800W AC output, and the advanced battery pack system enables you to power heavy-duty outdoor appliances and tools. The peak output is up to 3000W.
What this means is that it’s perfect for camping, and the general outdoors, but also ideal for remote expeditions where you may be traveling in convoys with a lot of power intensive devices (let’s say a documentary team with cameras for instance).
After-all, it was developed by one of National Geographic’s top Chinese explorers, documentary maker Zheng Yi.
You can power everything from smartphones, cameras, laptops, drones, and projectors, right up to electric grills, coffee makers; it’ll even power high intensity power tools, which also makes it a great option for backup power at home.
But what I love most about this product is that (finally!) there are two versions of it: an international version equipped with 220V AC ports, and a USA & CA version with 110V AC ports. These are the specs:

Life Saving Technology
Portable power stations have long been essential for outdoor explorers, as having a safe and reliable power supply can save your life. But the downfall has always been that the technology to date hasn’t worked in extreme conditions.
Zheng Yi knows this all too well.
Named one of the top Chinese explorers by National Geographic, Zheng was driving through Xijir Ulan Nuur in Qinghai Province when his convoy suddenly fell into the lake when driving over the ice.

The cars plummetted into the lake, and while the team escaped with their lives, all their electricity and power generation equipment were ruined, bar a satellite phone which hadn’t hit the water (though after just two calls, the satellite phone was out of power).
They were trapped in a cold remote wilderness (no man’s land) for 66 hours in -40 degree temperatures, 5,000 meters above sea level until a rescue team could arrive.
Sitting there freezing, wet, and with a maximum 4 – 5 days of food supplies, that’s when N35 was born.
What he desperately needed was a power station that worked at – 40 degrees, 5,000 meters above sea level, still worked after being fished out of the water, and was shockproof from having been off-roading on the bumpy road.
No such product existed, so when he made it home, he created one!
He paired up with battery expert Cao Yuchao, and together they worked to develop this innovative technology. A year and a half after being stranded in the middle of no-man’s land, it’s now available for every outdoor adventurer – the N35.
Nothing like the N35 currently exists, due to these truly incredible features:
With waterproof coating technology inside the unit, overall short circuit, and an open circuit protection design, N35 works as normal after being immersed in water; waterproof grade IP67 is enough to endure any heavy rain, flooding, or rainstorm.
And, equipped with an M-ICOB waterproof system, there’re an independent waterproof design for the socket, mainboard area (PCM system), and battery pack inside N35.
It can also handle salt water, and was tested after soaking in salt water competely, with a salt concentration of 4%!
Experiment: Fully Submerged
Severe Weather Resistance
When choosing an outdoor power station, you expect it to work in all weather conditions, whether it’s icy cold winter or extremely hot in summer.
In the extremely cold weather, the N35 can charge and discharge power as usual, when its as cold as – 40 °C / – 40 °F. At this extreme temperature it still completes more than 90% power output (it has a low-temperature Lithium-ion battery which maintains 80% capacity after 1,000 cycles).
And the storage environment requirements are low too – you can store it without impacting the unit to – 60 °C / – 76°F.
In extremely hot weather, the unit maintains an even temperature as it has an inbuilt cooling solution and partitioned thermal control.
The build of the N35 is hardcore – it’s been built with the extreme adventurer in mind, for use in the rugged, remote wilderness, so has an MRB suspension system that offers effective protection against attack from strong vibration, shock, or dropping it.
It’s an innovative metal design, which you don’t see in other power stations, with wooden handles for a comfortable grip. The housing is coated with an anti-corrosion material, so it’s been built to really last.
The housing is made of aerospace-grade aluminum material. With a special surface pattern and rounded angle design, this means that the shell reduces the impact and protects the inner structure from shock or fall.
And while hardcore, it’s a very simple design. The cover is made of magnetic materials; when the cover is closed, the overall power is off, when the cover is open, the power is on. Here are more safety features:
