This is how electronics used to ne made..im astonished this unit doesn't say made in the USA somewhere because it is what you would expect from maybe 1980 electronics as far as durability. I carry this everywhere with my tools..ive dropped it beat it up and put it though hell..i use it to charge devices. Keep in mind it will do 110v but not further than 150watts but that will run most small things..for the price and durability you need it as a backup when that big watt unit you buy fails and you have no way to charge stuff cause this thing is a baby tank battery bank...buy it.
I was looking for a powerful personal generator that I could take camping. I wanted to ensure that I would have a compact enough generator that could still handle my needs. After following instructions, I was able to test the device on a many items that I planned to bring with me to include a hair straightener, a portable desk AC/fan unit, charging my portable speaker and my phone charger. It works marvelously!! I am very impressed with this purchase and will be sharing my expierence with my friends and family who also enjoy camping with ease!
Received and immediately put it on charge. The charger says 18V, 3A but the instructions infer that 18V is beyond the required input. However it is the PSU that comes with it. So put it on charge. Through 70's%, everything was fine but when it got to 80%, the display showed A0. By 82% charge it was still showing A2. The bottom bar of the number 8 was "missing". For new in the box and costing $130... I expected better and was not going to chance this would not get worse... so I've now returned it.
There was another worry. The 12V output ISN'T 12V... it's 12V to 16.7V That concerns me as I wanted this specifically for 12V devices. A variance of 12V to 14V would have been perfectly OK but nearly 17V concerns me that some delicate 12V based equipment may be damaged. Not taking the chance.
Overall though the unit is very solid, all metal case, very nice carry handle etc. None the less, a display defect out of the box is too concerning.... what might have been next....
I bought this backup power supply over two years ago to have on hand during hurricane season in Florida. We have a major storm headed our way this week, so I decided it was time to give it a recharge since it's been sitting in a box for over a year. I plugged it in and was still 100% ready to go. Talk about dependable! It's also very light and easy to use... although I hope I won't have to.
