All You Would Like to Know About A Portable Power Station

If you would ask me what is the gear you recommend to outdoor amateurs and campers in 2019, my answer is “a portable power station”.  Actually, since its boosts in the market in recent decades, customers show unprecedented interests on it. Data from Sina Finance indicated that the growth rate of global power factories increased by 193% and the tendency keeps on going up. Many companies are sure that the electric car, solar panel, and portable power station, are the future of the power industry.


What is a portable power station?


    A portable power station, also known as a portable generator, or portable power source, is a lightweight and compact device. You can just refer it as a super-capacity multifunctional power bank, which can juice your electrical equipment on the way. It even has a variety of functions which come in handy during emergency situations such as it’s able to act as an electric generator to run your lamp and fridge in case a natural disaster happens.


    Why do I need a portable power station?


      Compared with traditional power supplies like coal or oil, the electricity that a portable power station generates is clean, safe and renewable. But what makes these portable generators so popular is the fact that they are valuable.


      In the outdoors

        With a portable power station, you never rough the life in the wild anymore. Not only do they provide a stable and whopping power source through AC, DC, car cigarette and USB ports, but they also are lightweight and they come with built-in handles for easy transportation.


        A portable power station can help you to run a heater in a tent during the winter. It lets the induction cooker work to make hot, fresh breakfast in the morning. It juices all your mobile device like GPS, phones, pads, and laptops, to keep you in touch with the world - and there is more.


        Some of the devices support solar panels, which means people can recharge the station through solar power. Therefore, as long as you have a sunny day during your camping trip, you will have all your devices juiced!


        In emergency/ indoors


          Situations like power outages following natural disasters and car accidents are something that no one wants to think about, but something that everyone should be prepared for. The portable power station is an ideal backup generator for indoors. It will power up your lamp and essential appliances. Besides, some of the power stations also feature LED lights and SOS flash which makes them an ideal helper in times of emergency.


          How much I have to pay for a good portable power station?

            According to data from Amazon, the average price of the Top 20 portable power stations is 513.78 USD, which is a relatively high tag. Some of them even reach over 700 USD. A lot of specifications influence the price. First, the capacity. The larger the capacity is, the higher the price will be. Among known brands, a 300wh generator needs over 200 USD; the 400wh one costs nearly 500 USD; if you want it to be 500wh, then it is a big investment around 600 USD. Secondly, if they hold the same capacity, the relatively lightweight and compact ones are normally more expensive. Last but not least, how many devices (input/output method) it supports, is a big point. Normally, a basic station should have an AC port, DC port, and USB port. Recent versions feature a QC3.0 USB port and support solar panels and more.

            The more you know about a portable power station, the more desire you have to try this cool gadget. Here comes the news - ENKEEO is launching our first portable power station in 30 days! Check its fantastic features at a glance below.

                Hi, I can’t find anything stating what the AC output voltage is. Certainly for the United States it would be 110 volts, but they are selling in Australia where our mains voltage is 240v. Are the units selling in Australia 240 volts AC output?
