Jackery Explorer is a “Jack of all Trades” generator

During the recent Florida hurricane, I spent a lot of money on a gas generator to run our fridge and a couple of fans. I had charged up our small chargers to help keep our iPhones and iPads going. but they didn’t last long. During our week without any power, we could have used something like the Jackery Explorer / Powerpro 500Wh Portable Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery Quiet Generator. That certainly would have helped!

The Jackery Explorer / Powerpro is a massive battery generator that will charge a smartphone 40+ times, a laptop 3-6 times and a mini fridge for 9 hours-all at the same time, yet only weighs 12.5 lbs. It can be recharged in 6-7 hours either by AC adapter or optional solar panel. But that’s not all. The Explorer sports a 110V outlet, 2 12V DC ports, a DC cigarette lighter socket, 2 USB ports, a built-in flashlight, and an LCD display. The LCD displays battery consumption, charge and discharge status. It also shows how much power in watts is coming in and how much load is on the battery.

The built-in Battery Management System (BMS) improves battery utilization, prevents over-voltage, over-current, over-temperature with advanced safety procedures, giving complete protection to your connected devices.

If you live in an area which can lose power for extended periods of time or want a long-lasting power source for camping, The Jackery Explorer / Powerpro may be what you need. Visit www.jackery.com/power-family/power-pro for more information and it sells for $599.99 on Amazon.

    …I wish they’d stop calling large batteries ‘generators’. This doesn’t generate electricity, it stores or transports it.

    The “generator” with no generator included. This is mildly infuriating that they’d advertise as one.

      I too was wondering how they squeezed a generator into that small package.

    these large battery packs are very convenient
    the power they provide is generally safe for your devices

    however they don’t generate power
    at the same price point you can find 1kw generator/inverters
    for 2-300usd more you can get 2kw gensets which won’t run your home but will run my camper’s AC or microwave…they are surprisingly quiet and their inverters provide safe filtered power for your devices

    at home I use an old generac with a quiet nagano motor (very old) it runs a freezer, two fridges and a couple of fans for about eight-ten hours on five gallons of gas

    I would never run any of my electronics with it except when using a ups as a filter
