Founder Ross Modglin of Battery Backup Power, Inc. donated 2 prototype T.H.O.R. (Tiny High Output Renewable) Boxes to Brian Sifferlin of the Massillon City School District in early October 2015 so his students could compete in a 3D printing competition where power wasn’t readily available. The lithium T.H.O.R. Box is not in production yet as the production model is undergoing the last of its design changes for sale in the U.S. The main design differences between the prototype and the production model are that the production model will have a different number of sockets, U.S. grounded NEMA 5-15 sockets, a pure sine wave inverter, and a car jumper port. The T.H.O.R. Box will run a MakerBot Replicator for 2 to 5 hours on battery power alone. One of Battery Backup Power Incorporated’s specialties is in backup power or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems for 3D printers.
