REVIEW – In my never-ending quest to always be prepared for any eventuality I’ve accumulated quite a few portable power units. Large and small, these power packs are strewn about my apartment, stored in pockets and backpacks, or stashed away in bins patiently awaiting the apocalypse. None of the many battery packs I own though […]
REVIEW – We are all insanely attached and dependent on our devices, even more so if you are of the Gadgeteer ilk. The EcoFlow Delta Pro Portable Power Station which is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter serves to keep your home, cabin, or camp purring along when power poops out, keeping your gaggle of gadgets
REVIEW – Our power doesn’t go out very often here, but when it does, it’s very inconvenient because my wife and I both work from home. When the OKMO 1000W Portable Power Station review offer came along, I jumped at the chance to have a little backup power. What is it? The OKMO 1000W Portable
REVIEW – We’ve been getting quite a few power stations sent to us for review here at The Gadgeteer lately. The Puleida Portable Power Station caught my eye because it was the antithesis of the last power station I reviewed (the massive Bluetti AC200P power station – which is most definitely not very portable). Puleida’s
REVIEW – Camping. Backyard parties. Power outages. These and many other activities may require power for lights, speakers, music players, and who knows what else. You can run extension cords but they’re unsightly, people can trip over them, and in the case of a power outage, they might not even be an option. Enter the
REVIEW – Being able to power my several mobile devices off the grid has become very important to me. For the past 16 months, I have been working remotely, and having portable power allows me to sometimes leave the confines of my home office for some much-needed fresh air while maintaining my work responsibilities. Since
REVIEW – When the Britisher Lord Acton famously said in the 1800s, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” he obviously wasn’t referring to portable power stations—electricity wasn’t even in homes yet. However, today the opposite is true. Getting absolute power from portable power sources like the Jackery Explorer 1500 Portable Power Station corrupts nothing.
REVIEW – Is it my imagination or are portable battery power stations becoming “a thing”? It seems like every week I see more and more ads or reviews on these large (and heavy) battery backups—and that’s a good thing! I live in Central Florida and each summer, we keep an eye on the weather radar
REVIEW – Travel chargers are all the rage these days. The progressively smaller and more powerful chargers are getting all the press. But what about those of us that need to charge stuff at our desks? No love for us? RAVPower has heard the call and responded with their new 4-port desktop charging station. What
REVIEW – About 20 years ago, I had one of those older lead-acid jump start battery packs. It was very heavy, but it saved the day more than once. It even had an air compressor on board! Newer jump start battery packs are much smaller with lithium batteries. Today I get to try one with
Nomad Base Station Mini and 20w USB-C Power Adapter reviews – Beautiful chargers that charge beautifully
REVIEW – Nomad has created a similar look and feel with all their products and the Base Staion line of products is no exception. The new Base Station Mini certainly takes its cue from previous versions while defining its own diminutive footprint that looks classy on any desk. Their 20w USB-C Power Adapter fits right
SPONSORED REVIEW – In this review, we’re taking a close look at the Bluetti AC200P 2000Wh portable power station. This is truly one of the most reliable portable power sources that you can get on the market, and that’s because of its enormous power capacity, many options for powering and charging devices, and it also
REVIEW – It is difficult to go through a day without needing some electrically powered or rechargeable device. When off the grid, be it intentionally while camping or involuntarily during a power outage, the TrekPow portable power station can keep these devices going. I have one to review. Read on to see what I think!
REVIEW – It seems like every few months we’re reminded of the fragility of our modern infrastructure with events like earthquakes, winter storms in Texas, pandemics, and other disasters. The Bluetti AC200P 2000Wh/2000W Portable Power Station is an option for emergency battery backup, and on paper it would also be great for RV/cabin use or
REVIEW – We live pretty far out in the sticks which definitely comes with its pluses and minuses. One of the biggest hassles being when the power goes out. Now I grant you this occasionally happens to everyone but one tree can take us off the grid for days, if not weeks at a time.
