If you're wondering why everywhere you look the Inergy Kodiak no longer exists, you're not alone. You also might remember hearing something about the Kodiak changing its name to the K2. Well you're right again, the Kodiak was updated to be called the K2 in early 2019. However, this name change was short lived because it has since changed again! In this article we will explain the timeline and reasoning behind the name changes on Inergy's most popular product. We are proud to introduce to you.......The Apex.
Inergy rose to popularity with their original portable solar generator, the Kodiak. It was an instant hit with customers because of its versatility as well as its compact shape and lightweight; it literally weighed only 20 lbs! It was still able to supply 1500 watts continuous pure sine wave with a 3,000 watts starting surge. It also allowed for 600 Watt input which could charge up the Kodiak in as little as 2.5 hours. The Kodiak was a beast! To give you a rough idea, the closest competitor on the market weighed more than double as much at 43.7 lbs!
Inergy continued to innovate and listened to customer feedback. They decided to take all that was great about the Kodiak and upgrade it. So, at the end of 2018 after they sold out of the original Kodiak they announced the launch of the updated Kodiak called; “The K2”. They began pre-selling the K2 January 17th, 2019 and the response was immediate. However, with customers hungry for their products, Inergy might have rushed a bit in naming their new flagship product. As it turns out, due to some trademark issues they encountered and wanting to make sure that we were completely compliant, the name of the K2 had to be changed. So after little more than a month of being on the market Inergy had to change the name of the K2! On March 1st, 2019 the announcement was made to the public that all K2 generators would be re-named “Apex.” The evolution from the Kodiak to the K2 has finally settled on the Apex.
Inergy's initial pre-sale for the the APEX (K2) sold out in a little over a month. Thanks to the amazing customer response Inergy has decided to start a second round of pre-sales which will ship June 19th, 2019. This will extend the pre-sale price for a little bit longer still!
If you're a customer who has already purchased an Apex or Apex kit before February 28th, 2019 then there is no need to worry. Inergy has assured us that your order will still be shipped out in May, 2019 as promised. All orders placed after February 28th, 2019 will be shipped out in June of 2019.
The kodiak still exists, its just got a new name and a few upgrades now :)
