When we stumbled upon this portable power system toolbox at the Las Vegas SEMA Show, our first thought was: it’s like carrying a garage in your tow vehicle tool box!
We weren’t far off the mark. The CIC Powerbox is like an all-in-one portable garage that lets you carry a generator, air compressor and heavy duty jump start system in your tow vehicle’s toolbox.
115V AC Electric Power
125 PSI Air Power
12 & 24 Volt Jump Start
2,100 Cranking Amp
Made in America by a Kansas-based family of engineering geeks, this portable power system comes in several configurations depending on your vehicle and power supply needs. Vice President Morgan Windsor explains:
With the basic 12v Crossover Model starting at $3,999 there’s no doubt that this garage-on-the-go is a sizeable investment. But for the RVer who travels into the rugged outback destinations of North America, it’s one of the best insurance policies you can buy when you’re stranded by the side of the road.
