REVIEW – As soon as the summer starts, I start cleaning and power washing all of the surfaces that have been dirtied by the elements of the winter season. Around my home, there are things like the driveway and the deck that need the services of my powerful gas-powered power washer. However, summer is also the time when I save some cash by washing the cars myself. I do not always feel like dragging out the gas washer, so a device like this Fixnow 500E battery powered pressure washer may make the chore somewhat easier. Let’s see!!
What is it?
The Fixnow 500E Cordless Pressure Washer is a 600PSI-1.1GPM Portable Power Washer/cleaner that runs on a 24V Battery.

The Fixnow 500E battery powered pressure washer comes with a nice storage bag and several accessories including a soap dispenser with an attached wand, a cleaning mitt, and a wash rag. The wand is built mostly from ABS/Plastic and the hose is reinforced and includes filters on both ends. On the wand, there is a safety button on the side and the operation lever in the middle of the handle. On the top surface of the wand, there is a touch button and a LED display. The touch button allows you to toggle through the modes: T1=Automatic; T2=Economical; S=Strong.
The Fixnow 500E battery powered pressure washer comes with a 24-volt battery and a charger. The first task was to fully charge the battery. There is a charge level indicator on the battery.
One of the included accessories is a collapsible bucket. I wanted to continuously use the washer until the battery was drained, and I knew that the included bucket was way too small. So I grabbed a large plastic garbage bin. In the photo below you can see the hose inserted in the larger bin. Prior to starting, I filled it with water up to just a few inches below the top.
So, here we go:
Looks pretty clean:
The Fixnow 500E battery powered pressure washer is convenient because it is battery-powered and because it can be used with a bucket. It provides enough pressure for smaller jobs including washing cars. I estimate that it can be used to wash 3 cars before the battery will run out of charge. The issues I have with the device are with the design. The connection for the hose to the wand is sized so a regular garden hose cannot be connected. While this washer is likely geared towards people who maybe live in an apartment and have no access to power or water when washing their own car, I think that the ability to attach a hose with an endless water supply would be great. The included collapsible bucket is quite small and would require several refills before the battery runs out of charge. The other issue is the lack of proper choices for spray patterns. Other than a direct stream, the adjustment barely offers much of a wider spray pattern. Otherwise, the wand is solidly built, and the inclusion of the soap dispenser and washing mitt is nice.
What I like
- The compact size
- The included accessories
- The ease of use
- The battery life
- The decent power for what it is
What I’d change
- Make the hose connection to the wand a standard garden hose size
- Better spray patterns
The Fixnow 500E battery powered pressure washer is handy and definitely has a niche. While I do wish that some different design choices were made, the device works well when used in useful scenarios. IMHO the price tag is high.
