  • What buyers say about Portable Power Station Explorer 500

    The construction is solid and looks great, however I wish the handle folding down for storage was included. I can't wait for us to use it on our camping trips and have cold food without the hassle of Ice.

    After I had reviewed the unit, I was very happy with it and they asked if I would be willing to write a detailed review.

    When I tried to reset the product first, they sent me a new one, and I wanted to let everyone know how great the service was.

    The size is 11.84"W x 9.2"H x 7.59"D and weighs 13 lbs, with a built-in light which is nice when camping in my tent.

    I tested the SolarSaga 100w in the PWN and it produced around 50 watt in about an hour. This is 18v at 2.78 Amp and I tried another 200 watt panel at 12v.

    Common Questions


    How long will it last to power a C-Pap?


    The first night of using the CPAP powered by the Jackery 500 used less than 50% of the 100% of charge.


    Will this support my 50 watt compressor fridge?


    It's thought it'll run for 10 hours, but the fridge will cycle and you'll get about 3X that time.


    What is the maximum charge rate allowed?


    There are 9 parallel groups of batteries in this pack.


    Can you attach two 100 watt solar panels to charge this?


    The Jackery 500 has a maximum input voltage of 25.2 volts at 3.5 Amp, which is the same as the maximum input voltage for the 130 watt Support panel suitcase.
