A few months ago I had the chance to review the Rockpower 300W portable power station. In this review, I will discuss the features and benefits of this device. It has nine charging ports, including one blue USB port that supports QuickCharge 3.0. It can be charged by any USB device and can work with a single 110V AC outlet. A large, sturdy case with a pull-out handle and rubber feet make this power station easy to transport.
The Rockpals power station has changed over time. Its most recent generation has an additional 30W USB-C PD port. The first generation had two additional ports but less-powerful amperages. Charging time is similar across all three models, but the solar panel charging took much longer than future versions. This model also includes USB-C charging. However, I still recommend the current version of the Rockpals 500 for the best overall power station.
The Rockpower 300W portable power station comes with a charging adapter and manual. The unit has an input that displays the amount of power going into the unit when charging. The display features ten segments that indicate approximate battery capacity. The segments blink to indicate charging status and remain solid when the device is fully charged. This portable power station will also run a mini-cooler, outdoor lights, and a pump.
As a result, this portable power station is a great choice if you are looking for a backup power station that is small and light enough to take anywhere you go. The capacity of this power station is good and the ports are sufficient, but it’s also heavier than some other power stations. The size of the unit is a concern if you’re planning on using it for a longer period of time, but the perks it provides make it worth considering.
Both the Rockpals 500 and the Rockpals 300w are a good choice if you need to charge a phone while camping. The Rockpals 500 offers three times the capacity as the Rockpals 300. Both models have a USB-C PD input port. The 500w Rockpals is better than the 300W portable power station, but the Rockpals 300w is cheaper and easier to carry around.
