This is a review of the Jackery 300 Solar Generator. The Solar Generator is essentially the Explorer 300 Portable Power Station plus a 100W SolarSaga Solar Panel which gives you the ability to generate emissions-free energy using the sun.

The power bank unit weighs just 7.1 lbs so it’s small, lightweight, portable, and it has a 293Wh capacity. It can recharge your phone 30 times, your laptop 4 times, and your drone around 5 times. For its size and weight, it’s pretty impressive and incredibly handy.

The launch of Jackery brand-new product kicks off at on 8pm PDT on #JackeryDay 5/12. Watch the live stream product release worldwide on Jackery official website and social media.

This is a review of the Jackery 1500 lithium power station with 4 SolarSaga 100W panels.

I’ve used it to charge my electric bicycle even while on the road, for running a fan outside under a picnic table while charging my laptop, camera, drone, and smartphone too. But those are just little things. The Jackery 1500 is capable of much more, with 1800w output power, it can handle up to 7 appliances at once, including powering a full-size refrigerator with freezer and icemaker with ease just about all day long. It’s pretty incredible. Not to mention, very quiet for a generator. And you can run it indoors.

The best part, with the solar panels I can charge it up using the sun even if I’m in an off-grid location. It’s a pretty good feeling and I’m looking forward to having it in hand during storm outages, hurricane outages, road trips, and for keeping all of my electronics charged up anywhere I may be.

Personally, I’m considering their Explorer 160 since it weighs less than 4lbs it’s something I can easily throw in a bag and use on the go. It’s also relatively inexpensive. Their 300 unit has more to offer and weighs in at about 7 lbs. Which one are you thinking of? For more serious needs like van life, boat life, camping, cabin life, tiny life, or even for everyday life, I would consider the Solar Generator 1500, 1000, or 500.

Jackery was kind enough to send us one of their solar generators to review which I’ve been toying with over the last week. It’s the Jackery Explorer 1000, or E1000, along with two 100W folding solar panels. This system gives you the ability to recharge your generator in as little as 8 hours, which then gives you the power for 13 laptop charges, 7 hours of refrigeration, 40 minutes of electric stove, or 76 hours of light, just for a few examples. It’s great for camping, outdoor activities, or even just to use green energy around the house in everyday life. You can use it to power your blender, juicer, power tools, and various other appliances. Something like this can also be handy for videographers, photographers, and podcasters on the go. So far, I love it. And I’m finding more and more ways to use.
