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.
