Purchasing a new power station for your vehicle can be an intimidating task. There are so many factors to take into consideration, including price, battery life, draw capacity and DC inputs. These are all important to consider before making the purchase.

Battery life

Whether you need portable power for your house or for a small office, the Jackery Explorer 1500 can serve as your reliable secondary power source. With its built-in battery management system and Pure Sine Wave Inverter, it can provide a steady source of power that is both safe and reliable.

The Explorer 1500 is a little heavier than its smaller cousin, the Explorer 1000. But it packs a lot of features. It comes with a USB C port, a USB charger, and a power inverter, as well as a couple of other components. The power station also includes a couple of solar panel adapters. The power station is covered by a 24-month warranty.

The front panel of the power station has a large LCD display that shows input watts, output watts, the percentage of the battery’s life remaining, and the number of estimated hours the battery will remain charged. The screen also shows the number of watts being used by your electronics, and the number of watts you’re putting into the power station.

The Jackery Explorer 1500 can handle a surge of up to 3600 watts, and can operate a load for a long time. The power station will run an average smartphone 136 times before the battery starts to deplete. The Jackery Explorer 1500 can handle up to seven devices simultaneously.

The Jackery Explorer 1500 is designed for use with a 12V car charger, but it can be recharged by AC power or by using solar panels. It is not water resistant. The batteries have an internal capacity of 1488Wh.

The Explorer 1500 is not the best portable power station on the market. It has some shortcomings, including a non-waterproof design, a lack of proportional fan speed, and the ability to only charge at 500W from a wall outlet.

Although the battery life of the Explorer 1500 is decent, you won’t get a charge rate of more than 800 cycles. The battery is lithium-ion, and the battery can be recharged using a car charger, a wall outlet, or solar panels.

DC inputs

Despite its mighty power, the Jackery Explorer 1500 has some limitations. It doesn’t have an Anderson port, and can’t use more than one input at a time. However, it has some great features, and is good for car camping and vanlife.

The screen is easy to read. There are three icons, which show the charging status. The first icon shows the current wattage of the device plugged into the port. The second shows the wattage of the battery bar, and the third shows the wattage of the input. The orange circle lights up clockwise when the device is being charged.
