" ...   The Jackery Explorer 240 is honestly a great portable power bank! ... Charges phones just like out of the wall socket as well as many other devices. ... Great for keeping anything charged while outdoors, on the go, or even at parties to keep speakers and everyone’s phones or devices charged and running!  ...  "

" ...  I can run a travel CPAP via the 12V port, and charge my phone and watch overnight via the USB and still have 60% battery in the morning.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Used the power station explorer to charge my iPhone 2 times, MacBook 12 inch and a 20000mAH battery pack and still had 53% remaining. ... Then took it glamping and was able to charge 3 iPhones, Apple Watch and iPad fully. ... Fast charging times.  ...  "

" ...  This portable power unit is awesome for powering laptops and charging batteries in the field while we run our UAV/Drone operations. ... I have purchased two of these and am anxiously awaiting delivery of a solar panel so I can have one charging via solar while the other is in use.  ...  "

" ...  I try to keep all our devices charged and ready to go, but it's easy to forget and an outage can occasionally last longer than a single charge.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This seller knew that too, so they took it upon themselves to send me a really nice, large battery pack charger at no cost to make sure I would have something before the storm to get me through. ... The power station came the following week after the storm as expected, but it was fine, because I had this battery backup (great product by the way) that kept my phones and tablets fully charged.  ...  "

" ...  This battery is an amazing addition to anyone’s battery arsenal. ... Whether you need power when you are in a remote locationor in a power outage, this battery has you covered. ... Although the price may seem high at first, if you actually compare it to other battery’s of similar style, it is very similar. ... This is also able to replace gas generators in certain situations, which can cost much more than this battery. ... This battery has many amazing features, that make it the best battery powered, generator replacement. ... This power station has all of the normal Jackery safety features, that help to protect your battery, and you. ... The battery provides good battery management for long lasting of the battery even when it’s not being used.  ...  "

" ...  I ran a 26" floor fan for three hours, right out of the box (came with a 48% charge).  ...  "
comment
" ...  Next, I considered the dominate brand Goal Zero, namely the Yeti 400 with the replaceable AGM battery which is rated at 396Wh. ... They both have higher rated batteries obviously, but they also have higher rated inverters (300/600 vs 200/400), so that was a factor I took into consideration.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Part of the kit is a 12VDC charger that feeds of a car battery. ... This will replace that so that we can have full battery backup as well.  ...  "
