Short Review: I own several of these inverter generators from various different brands.. I charge them via solar (see tips below about saving the laptop tips for solar charging), and then I use them while camping and other activities outdoors. 170watt hours is a lot of power, especially if used only to charge phones and stuff! This should charge a powerful smartphone around 50 times and probably more!
Use: I needed something in between the size of my yeti 400 lithium and my goal zero Sherpa 100.. this fits the bill perfectly!
1.) USB String Lights – Great camping accessory! I used Goal Zero lights. Worked great
2.) Microsoft Surface – Worked great and more than doubled the battery on my Surface
3.) Huawei Mate 9 – Charged 10 times and still had a ton of juice
4.) iPhone 6 – charged 10 time after charging the mate 9.. Still had tons of juice..
5.) 6 can mini fridge – Works Great
6.) Charged the NTONPOWER with my 100watt goal zero solar panel
Notes: This does not provide enough power for a coffee pot or anything like that
1.) Metal Body, built very well
2.) Easy to read LCD display
3.) Rubber waterproof protector for plugs
4.) Built in light
5.) Can charge multiple items at once
1.) Be sure to unscrew the outlet and connect it to the battery bank. It ships unplugged!
2.) You can use the laptop adapters to plug a goal Zero panel into this battery bank using the regular input instead of the solar input
3.) This battery pack cannot be carried on a plane.. you need one under 100 watt hours for that
Overall: after one trip and several test I am impressed with this battery pack. So far it’s working well! I have several other trips planned so I’ll continue to update if I have any issues
