Jackery Solar Generator Reviews
Does what it says. Fans a little noisy but I use it for my cpap machine at night. Perfect for back up energy and powers up even on dull days. Happy to have this for off grid and as house back up for chargers, heaters and griddleDavid
Used this at our annual family camp for led lighting and phone charging, great.
Will try it with led tv next year for a movie in the evening for the children
great set up, only thing the solar panel could have a better casetrish willoughby
Exactly what I wanted , it works as it should and it isn't rocket science to use it
Very glad I researched this and bought this item it works perfectly for my needs and is really easy to useI got it for my cpap but I am working my way round the house trying different itemsI am definitely ready for any winter blackoutsDavid
By far the most expensive option.
I had seen so many youtube influencers talking about the benefits of the Jackery lineup.
But had I seen some other reviews, I definitely would not have bought this.
For one, its by far the most expensive unit in the 500w 500whr range.
Secondly it's Lithium ion and not lithium ferrous. So instead of 2500 charges, this will degrade after just 500, or less if you don't take proper precautions, like keeping the charge above 20% and below 80%. Giving you only 60% of the full battery to use.
Thirdly, it's absolutely not serviceable, and lithium ion is highly dangerous. LiFepo is far safer and much more resilient.
Also the solar PV is far far more expensive than a PV from amazon, hell you can get 200w and more for the price of the jackery PV.
Just shop around a little, you can get a lot more for the same money or less, and on Amazon too.
Look for EcoFlow and Bluetti
Brilliant wish I had one years ago
Bought this for our narrowboat. Charges quickly in the sun. Being portable can use indoors with anything. For us wenused it in the bathroom for the twin tub. 3 loads of washing and spinning and about 20% used.
Simple to use
We love how easy this is to use, it is plug and play-type simplicity.The solar panels work well but really do need bright and direct sun to input a charge.Expensive but worth it for van or camp life.packers
Not as good as expected
Not to happy with it.Greig allan
Great for my summerhouse
Great addition to my summerhouse, can use my alexa which is great. Also if we have power cuts it will be great for the winter months.*** ***
Love this with the added solar panels.. I would suggest if you budget allows get the 1000w 500w is amazing but has some limitations on what it can run…. I have charged mine during the day and of a night run my cooling fan ,Alexa and charged my phone!! We also use this when we wild camp and it charges everything we need to use.. quality is great so easy to use…Frederick J Fullerton
