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?

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

OK, so I'll admit that I'm a Jackery fan. I love their stuff. I travel with a Titan or Powerbar (depending on the trip) and they've treated me extremely well despite the abuse I put them through.

When I saw that this had been released, I decided I needed one. Last fall I moved to New England, and over the winter had several

This is the second time I’ve ordered this cord. Had one up north but sold it when I moved to Florida. That was a mistake! After Irma came thru it was obvious that a generator was needed here more than anywhere so when I bought one I instantly new what power cord I needed. It’s long enough to keep the generator in the back yard to

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

Like other reviews, this is a great quality box, the manufacturer recommends using minimum 10 gauge / max 8 gauge wire, we installed the box with 8 gauge wire without problem, easy to install, but hire a Certified electrician to do this job, this box must be used with a combination of a transfer switch or Interlock, I decided to use an

Purchased for my generator hook up at main panel. The build quality is good. My only comment is the same as some of the other reviews. The removable cover that contains the plug in socket has an rear lip that must fit over the stationary cover that gets screwed in place. If you attach the base to a flat surface, you will not be able

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 the

I ordered 3 of these generator cords 2 days ago using Prime and as expected, they showed up today.Talk about heavy duty, I can see why they include that neat little carry/storage handle.

I specifically selected this cord because it was rated "STW" grade cord in the description. What I actually received was "SJTW" (Which is the "Junior" version of the STW cord).

I bought this Champion Weather-Resistant Cover for my new Champion 3400 Dual Fuel generator. I love the heck out of my superbly-engineered generator, but this cover is "meh."

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). Studied specs on this cover and, from reviewer comments, thought it was more practical than other 'generic' covers with fiddly frame-to-dome connections, and so decided to see if it would work on our

I decided to try Jackery’s newest and most portable offering when looking for an effective and versatile power source for camping that wouldn’t be as bulky or heavy as packing a 40lb car batter and power inverter.

After the Hurricane, I needed something reliable to get me through the night until I could start my big generator up. Power typically goes out at night. This generator did not disappoint.

After reviewing a number of generators, I chose this one. It runs as quiet as the Honda at half the cost. It has enough power to run my 30 foot travel trailer including the AC (13,500 BTU).

I live in Houston and as hurricane season approaches I started researching emergency generators. Consumer Reports recommends inverter generators, plus the more I read about propane, the more I liked it.
