Okay, I will start out by saying I am a U.S Service-member with over twenty years of Honorable service. With that being said I’ve done multiple tours to almost every desert in the Middle East, tours in tropical environments, tours in some pretty secluded off grid undisclosed locations. I only put this out there because I’ve had the

Today is March 30th and decided to give the Explorer 1000 another chance. I plugged in my regular things: laptop, portable monitor, IPad and IPhone. Started my day at 7:00 AM and finished 3:45 PM. To my surprise the results were different. I had 67% remaining. It fair to say, I needed to let the Explorer settle in. Love the fact that I

Let me start off by saying I'm a little biased as I already really like Jackery's products as well as their support team. I have owned the Jackery 120 and 240 units, and this was my latest addition. Like the headline states, this is my favorite Jackery to date. Below I'll list some specs, the reasons why it's my favorite Jackery power

I ordered this power station knowing it probably wouldn’t get to me until after Hurricane Florence had hit. This seller knew that too, so they took it upon themselves to send me a really nice, large battery pack charger at no cost to make sure I would have something before the storm to get me through. Who does that?I never write

This product works well, but there is a challenge for CPAP users that needs to be considered. The "passthrough" power on the 110v outlet is not actually passthrough. What this means is that the 3-hr cutoff time affects this outlet, as well, so if you intend to use this device as a UPS during storms while you sleep, you'll need to

Needing something to power my CPAP machine while camping, I chose the Jackery Explorer 240 and it has surpassed both my needs and expectations.This is an update as I have enjoyed using the Jackery Explorer 240 numerous times over the past year.

Amazon needs to correct the description, the three outlets are 5-15R, not 5-20R. The Champion site clearly states "Equipped with a fan-style group of (3) standard 5-15R outlets". For most this may not matter, but if you are trying to connect a 5-20P plug it will not fit. The 5-20P has one blade perpendicular to the other; the

This cord is made by Xuanhua (in China) and is marked as such at both the connectors and on the cable itself. The cable has no Champion branding or markings. I figured it was worth paying a little more than the "off-brand" options to get something you can trust. Unfortunately I paid more but ended up with the "off-brand" anyways.

The Jackery Explorer 500 is a solid, well designed product. The unit is rugged and compact with nothing on the exterior to break off or catch on nearby objects. The display shows charge level, charging wattage, and use wattage, all very handy. The pure sine wave inverter provides a clean AC supply at 110V, 60 hz. The unit charges in 8

I live in Florida and this is a must have for power outages, camping, and hurricane preparation. It’s so much easier than a traditional generator. It’s also a much cleaner solution and easier to have available when needed. The display screen is very helpful as far as knowing whether or not it’s fully charged. It has ample outlets

We just received the Jackery Explorer 500 Power Station. It’s a much bigger unit than the Honda 290 Power station that we already have. It's still lightweight, but it's much heftier than the 290. The new one is going to be a holiday gift for my parents, since they don’t have a generator (we do). Power outages are a part of life in

works great. See photos for install. you will need a hole saw bit or spade bit to drill through siding and band joist or side sheeting to run waterproof conduit.

[Update: Jackery announced on 1/28/2021 that the updated Explorer 300 can now be charged through the 60W USB-C PD and be used in parallel with the 90W AC wall charger. This provides for a combined input of 150W, nearly cutting the charging time in half!]Back in April, I purchased the Jackery Explorer 1000 and the Goal Zero Yeti 500x

I own the Jackery Explorer 240 and the 1000 models and have had great results with them, so I figured the new Explorer 300 would be an excellent power station too. It is interesting to note that the 240 and the 300 models are the exact same size (i.e. for a case or other needs). I tested the 12v outlet to see if it had regulated

I use the Solar Saga to charge my Jackery 240 which recharges a lot of handheld devices on a daily basis. The panel is lightweight, compact and sets up in less than a minute. While parked in your camper, RV, car, truck, etc. you can place the panel on your dashboard faced toward the sun with the 240 charging on the floorboard. This works

The Solar Sega is the latest component added to our emergency preparedness schematic, which also includes the Jackery 160 and 240 Power Stations, as well as a host of power banks, etc. During short term power outages (which don’t necessitate cranking up the generator), the 160 and 240 each have a primary job addressing design flaws in

Awesome generator! I bought it as insurance for the next major storm! Easy to start and really quiet. It does not come with oil, so make sure you have some. Takes about a half quart.

This is the brand new model from Honda replacing the very popular eu 2000. So far the only noticible upgrades I’m seeing are an additional 200 watts of power and a loooong overdue fuel cutoff switch. Other than those two upgrades it seems very similar to the reliable and trusted eu 2000. Since I can’t offer much of a review, I’ll

I bought a 7500 watt Champion generator and in two months time, I have used it 3 times. I felt very uncomfortable using the generator uncovered.

It works fine for keeping dirt and rain off a stationary unit, but campers, workers and road

We often lose power during winter storms -- and that means rain and wind when a generator is needed (usually at least 3 times each winter).

Most modern, small portable generators are grounded through their frame and built to conduct current from away from critical areas (like the gas tank) but the user manual clearly states this unit has to have an external ground to operate safely.

I live in Houston and as hurricane season approaches I started researching emergency generators.
