For those who like camping, hiking or self-driving tours, it is vital to have enough energy to charge all your electronic products and personal devices
What is a Portable Generator?
Portable generators are devices that convert fuel, gasoline, or propane (used in dual-fuel devices) into electrical energy. Their output ranges from about 1,000 watts to more than 20,000 watts
but, an increase in generator power output comes at the expense of increased noise, fuel consumption, size and weight
What is a Portable Power Station?
A portable power station is a device that can store electrical energy in an internal battery for later use. Portable power stations usually provide up to 1000 W of electricity
*They are huge power banks. But each has its advantages and disadvantages
Early outdoor people generally used two methods.
- high power and many electrical appliances
- Large size, high noise, high power consumption, and serious odor during power generation
（2） Car inverter
- The power is small, and the car cannot be used for a long time after the car is turned off.
- The engine cannot fully burn, and the non-sine wave inverter will also damage the electrical appliances.
In short, it is difficult to achieve the best of both worlds. The emergence of outdoor power stations undoubtedly made up for this dilemma
How Long can the Portable Power Station be Used?
After the portable power station is fully charged, it can run for 3 hours to 13 hours. The service life depends on the age of the battery, the battery type, size, the number of electronic equipment used with the power station, and the life cycle
A cycle refers to the use of the product from full charge to zero charge. Therefore, if you use a portable power station several times a week, it may only be used for one or two years. But if you don't use it often, it can last longer.
What can you Run on a Portable Power Station?
Portable power stations usually power smaller electronic devices and appliances and become your road trip necessities, such as smartphones, laptops, cameras, fans, lights, etc. Please pay attention to the estimated watt-hours provided by each brand in its specifications to determine which model is best for the equipment you are supplying power.
Benefits of Portable Power Station
Use one device to charge all your electronic devices
you don't have to worry about power outages during camping, hiking, fishing, etc., it can charge all your electronic devices and multiple devices at the same time.

- Can be Used as Emergency Supplies
（1） When you plan to travel long distances or overnight trips in an environment without electricity, make sure your power station is fully charged
（2） It is recommended to have a spare battery to prevent unexpected situations
（3） Check the battery status. The typical lithium batteries used in most power stations can last for two to three years.
（4） Check instructions before useing
