Let me first start by saying that this battery is great. I needed something to use for my cpap machine if I lose power and this was highly recommended and works well! The problem I have is I ordered this a few weeks ago, when I heard a hurricane might be headed our way, well got it and the battery I got was defective and would not charge. I couldn't get anything resolved quick enough to get it exchanged, but Amazon was able to do it for me, and I was out of power for 3.5 days, and the battery came on the 4th day right when I got power restored! So was very upset that they don't test these before they ship out!
Bought it for an airbrush system for body art painting. I have used it for two outdoor events. It worked great. After 5hours it only used less than two bars. And it is really light weight. A great purchase for sure!
This is well made and performs as it should.
I have been using this "NEXPOW Portable Power Station, 296Wh 80000mAh Solar Generator 110V/300W (Peak 500W) 2 AC Outlet/4 USB Ports/2 DC Ports/QC 3.0 PD Ports for iPhone 12 Backup Battery Power Supply for CPAP Outdoor Camp (YP-300W)" for 1 year+ now.
Originally I got 3 different ~300W "lowered cost" portable power stations to play with and evaluate, this particular NEXPOW, one from iClever (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08C2H3GC1), and then another one from BOSALY (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B082Q2B4ZJ). Out of all 3, the only one that I am still actively using (after more than a year now), is this NEXPOW one. Some connectors on the BOSPLAY one had failed, and the display on the iClever had failed, while this NEXPOW one is still going strong.
I use it in my car to power my ARB fridge when my car is off. I wired this inline with my vehicle's power so that when the car is ON, it will charge this unit, and while my car is off, and if I am running my fridge, this unit will power it (via the DV out). And occasionally, I will also plug in USB devices for charging and sometime even a laptop charger from the 120V inverter out. The 2x "blue" USB QC 3.0 ports indeed charges my devices very fast while the 1x USB-C PD port can totally power and charges a laptop even without a dedicated charger. The display/UI is useful and effective, it gets the job done as well as providing good information so that I can monitor & project my power usage and adjust accordingly.
So far, this had been working out very well for me, and I am still very happy with this unit. Overall, the functionality of the unit, and its instruction, the support from the company etc... this is probably a solid 4 or 4.5, and considering the price of $189, I am bumping it to a 5. For a 300W class unit, this is cheaper than only a few others that I considered better than it. If money is no object, I probably will get a Jackery 293Wh unit (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B082TMBYR6) but that is $100+ more (50% more).
I also tried to charge this unit with a 100W solar panel, it worked fine and it fully charged in a few hours without issue with full Southern California afternoon sun.
Thank you for reading this review, I hoped that this review & the pictures are helpful to you in support of your purchase decision.
Product doesn't hold a charge and makes it useless
Damaged upon arrival
Tried calling NEXPOW costumer service number and a random person picked up ( i got the number form their official website)
Amazon puts me on hold when I try contacting them
