The power output is a pure sine wave of current. This is very important for sensitive Electronics to keep the power clean. it has a 300-watt output with a 600-watt surge. oftentimes when electronics start up there’s a surge to get them running and this can handle up to 600 watts.

The portable power station is capable of charging most portable Electronics I use it to charge my drone and my phone, I’ve even been able to use it with a small power board pump, and to charge electric bikes on the go.

In the Box

Inside the box, you get the power station a user manual and warranty card an AC adapter to charge it from the wall an mc4 to dc5521 solar charging cable, a car socket charging cable, and a USB-C cable to USB-C for charging USB-C devices.

This portable power unit continues to receive high reviews on Amazon online, and other ranking sites. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now on a few camping trips and around the house it’s been a great addition when I need power to a corner of the house and don’t feel like running an extension cord, or just being able to charge up devices anywhere I want without worrying where a plug is. I think the most significant selling point for me is the peace of mind that comes with knowing that if the power goes out or if I’m outside of the home I can still keep my laptop charged for days. I love having it with me in the tent and using the light that is built in, it’s very convenient for camping or tabletop work in the dark.

Solar Panels for Charging

Pairing the Neo 300 with the SP 100 solar panel is a perfect outdoor combination. I would highly recommend picking up the solar panel if you purchase the battery pack. it’s lightweight and portable folding in half and has built-in storage of cables. it weighs just over 7 lb and is ip54 waterproof rated has very strong construction with buckles and velcro closures to keep everything tidy as well as built-in soft adjustable legs to point the solar panel at the Sun directly.

The photoelectric conversion is up to 22%. so you will see the battery charge quickly and in bright direct sunlight. these panels are capable of putting out 100 Watts and being able to charge directly from the panels to USB. they are easy to clean off to keep them running as efficiently as possible. The size of the panels is also perfect for sliding in between items to make them portable.
