By bringing a portable power station with you when going on an outdoors camping adventure, you can ultimately ensure that you’ll be able to stay comfortable at all times while simultaneously keeping your campsite’s lights turned on whenever that’s necessary. Furthermore, not only do these powerful power-delivery gadgets allow you to easily keep any portable electronic devices powered up (like a portable refrigerator, an electric grill, or an electric-powered coffee maker), but they also make it very convenient for you to recharge any of your portable devices (like a Smartphone or tablet) whenever required. That said, if you’re looking for a reliable portable power station to bring with you on your next outdoors adventure, then consider going with the Jackery Solar Generator 1000.

The Jackery Solar Generator 1000 outdoors power-station kit combines the Jackery Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station with two SolarSaga 100W Solar Panels.

Basically, this is a very nice solar-powered outdoors solution that allows you to convert the sun energy captured by its SolarSaga 100W solar panels directly into electrical power, which is then stored in the Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station for later use.

That said, since this powerful portable power station comes together with two (x2) SolarSaga 100W Solar Panels, you can ultimately use it as your go-to green outdoors power solution at any time you require a reliable source of power while you’re out and about exploring the outdoors and enjoying Mother Nature.

Furthermore, this whisper-quiet power station offers you a huge source of power, as it comes equipped with a large-capacity 1002Wh (21.6V, 46.4Ah) Lithium-Ion battery that can easily give any of your portable electric-powered appliances more run time.

Not only that, but portable power station also features a very complete interface that integrates exactly 3 AC outlets, 2 USB-C ports, and a Quick Charge 3.0 port, which you can conveniently use to power or recharge all your appliances, whether that’s a portable refrigerator, a coffee maker, or even any of your personal devices, like a Smartphone or tablet.

Lastly, if you’re exploring the outdoors together with family and/or friends and you require some more USB ports for your recharging needs, then you’ll be happy to know that each of the power station’s dedicated SolarSaga 100W Solar Panels also feature 1 USB-A port and 1 USB-C port, so everyone in your camping group is guaranteed to be covered.

Now, let’s have a slightly more detailed look at this awesome power station and its 2 included SolarSaga 100W Solar Panels and check out how this outdoors power-station kit was designed to work, and see everything that you can get out of it.

DESIGN

Power Station

Starting with the Jackery Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station – meaning the kit’s portable power station – the main unit features a reasonably compact design, as it measures exactly 13.10 inches long by 9.20 inches wide by 11.10 inches tall.

This portable power station is fairly well built, featuring a very solid and ultra-durable construction. Additionally, the Jackery Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station is also quite lightweight, weighing just 22.04 lbs. (10 kg), which overall, makes it quite easy to carry around.

Moreover, its built-in Carrying Handle (located at the top of the unit) is quite comfortable to grip, and also gives you a safe and reliable away to carry the unit back and forth while you’re setting up (or withdrawing from) your campsite.

Solar Panels

Now, moving on to the kit’s included SolarSaga 100W Solar Panels, each solar panel measures exactly 24 inches long by 21 inches wide by just 1.4 inches thick (610 x 535 x 35 mm) when folded – which makes these ease to carry around – and exactly 48 inches long by 21 inches wide by 0.2 in thick (1220 x 535 x 5 mm) – which offers you a lot of area to capture the sun light and easily generate more power for the main unit’s internal battery. Each solar panel is also fairly lightweight, weighing just 10.33 lbs. (4.69 kg) each.

Since these foldable Solar Panels come equipped with centralized hinges, they’re very easy to fold and unfold when setting up the whole power station kit (meaning the power station together with its two dedicated Solar Panels) at your campsite.

Lastly, each SolarSaga 100W Solar Panel also features a built-in kickstand (at the back-side) that’s both sturdy and easy-to-use, and thanks to that, you can have these solar panels conveniently set up at a specific angle in order to have them aiming / looking directly at the sunlight, and that should ultimately ensure that you’ll be able to capture the most amount of solar-power through each day.

INTERFACE / CONNECTION-PANEL

Power Station Interface

As mentioned before, this awesome outdoors power station also features a very complete interface (meaning its Connection Panel) that users can either use to conveniently power up or recharge any of their appliances of battery-powered devices, whether that’s a portable refrigerator, a coffee maker, or even any of their personal devices, like a laptop, a Smartphone, a tablet, etc.

Starting at the top left of the unit, we have its single DC Input (12V-30V that can work up to a maximum of 200W), and directly at the right side of that DC Input port, we also have a dedicated Anderson Input that makes this portable power station fully compatible with the unique electrical connectors that can be found on many Anderson Power Products.0

Moving further down, just  we below those two Input ports, we also also have a Car Output port (12V, 10A), and at its right side, we can find the power station’s two (x2) dedicated USB-C Output ports (5V, 9V, 12V up to 3A), and directly under those, we also have a USB-A Output port (5V, 2.4A) as well as a Quick Charge 3.0 Output port (5-6.5V, 3A / 6.5-9V, 3A / 9-12V, 1.5A).

At the bottom right of the unit, sitting just left of its several USB ports, we also have three (x3) PURE SINE WAVE AC Outlets (110VAC, 60Hz) that are meant to be used with a total rated Running Wattage that should stay under 1000W (with a Surge Wattage of 2000W).

Lastly, there’s also a small built-in display screen that keeps users informed about the power station’s current battery levels as well as about its current Input and Output values (in Watts).

Solar Panel Interface

As mentioned before, each of the unit’s dedicated SolarSaga 100W Solar Panels also come with a small Power Adapter plug that features a DC Output port (which works at 18V, 5.55A, 100W) on one of its ends, and both one (x1) USB-A Output port (5V, 2.4A) and one (x1) USB-C Output port (5V, 3A) at the other end, which can both be used at your convenience for all of your recharging needs.

BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE

As stated earlier, the Jackery Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station comes equipped with a large-capacity 1002Wh (21.6V, 46.4Ah) Lithium-Ion battery that features a whisper-quiet operation to the power station and ultimately, allows this powerful power station to give any of your portable electric-powered appliances more run time.

Overall, the unit’s battery can get you around 8 recharges for a Macbook Pro13 Laptop, around 100 Charges for an iPhone 8, or 50 minutes of run time for a 900W electric grill, or alternatively, for those with a 60W Mini Fridge, up to 17 hours of run time.

Now, to recharge the power station’s internal battery, you can have the Explorer 1000 quickly recharged within 8 hours by simply connecting its two included SolarSaga 100W solar panels to it with the included Power Adapter Cable (included inside the package). I’d also like to mention that the unit’s two included SolarSaga 100W solar panels are powered by Professional MPPT technology, which helps to provide reasonably fast solar recharge rates (especially when compared to other power station kits available on the market).

Alternatively, you can also connect its AC Adapter to a standard wall outlet (for which the unit’s recharge time should take around 7 hours), or if you prefer, you can also connect the unit’s dedicated 12V Car Adapter to a car outlet (for which the recharge time should then take you around 14 hours).

Lastly, for those with their own Power Generator, you can also recharge the unit’s battery via a generator, and that should take you around 7.5 hours of recharge time.

OTHER NOTABLE FEATURES

Smart Battery Management System:

I’d also like to point out that the power station’s large-capacity 1002Wh (21.6V, 46.4Ah) Lithium-Ion battery also features a dedicated Smart Battery Management System that not only helps you to keep an eye on its current battery levels, but also offers you two Safety Functions, which are Over Voltage Protection and Short Circuit Protection.
