Jackery Explorer 1500 Portable Power Station review – Absolute power

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.

Pecron 1500 17

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

mophie powerstation go rugged air 16

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

jackery SolarGenator1000 1 1

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.

REVIEW – If your house is like mine, you have dozens of power-hungry gadgets in every pocket, on every shelf, and under the Christmas tree, Menorah, or Festivus Pole.
