Portable power stations are designed to provide you with stored power at any time. If you need to keep running your phone or another crucial device during a power outage, you can use them as backup power sources. Our blog investigates the duration a portable power station serves to power your devices.
The Wattage of a Power Station
Each EcoFlow battery has a maximum wattage to provide energy for appliances. For instance, a battery of 500W can power the TV and laptop charger at once. However, it cannot power the water heater, TV, desktop and laptop all at the same time. The capacity of the battery dictates whether you can charge some phones and run a lamp or two for a few hours, or run larger appliances for multiple days.
Connecting the Power Station to Solar Panels
Planning a weekend getaway? Working at your outdoor office? Or just in need of reliable backup power for small devices while on the road? You can always recharge your EcoFlow battery with portable solar panels when you decide to go on a trip for recreation. Solar charging is a great way to compensate for power consumption when AC charging isn’t an option.
When choosing a battery, you have to consider its surge capacity, the power that several devices need during startup. For example, refrigerators and microwaves draw more power upon starting. They will not work unless there’s ample surge capacity.
AC Charging Period
The battery management system ensures safety and longevity while you fully charge from a standard AC wall outlet in maximum two hours. The X-Stream charging technology is fast and safe.
Get Quick Charging Via USB
USB charging is needed when you do not have a fast AC charger for your devices. EcoFlow batteries provide USB-A and USB-C ports for quick charging.
