Portable Power Station

Portable power station is a large energy storage equipment widely used in outdoor work, RV travel, camping, emergency preparedness and other scenarios, the power is usually 200Wh-5KWh, output power 100-2000W, with a variety of data interfaces, high-power power station can supply power to almost 99% of the equipment, portable power station can also use solar panels for charging, very energy efficient and environmentally friendly.

Portable power station products are a safe, portable, stable, environmentally friendly small energy storage system, usually using lithium-ion batteries / lithium iron phosphate batteries to provide a stable AC, DC power output power system. Smaller in size while having greater output power to meet daily power needs. Usually equipped with AC, DC, Type-C, USB, PD and other interfaces, can match the market’s mainstream electronic equipment, widely used in outdoor work, RV travel, camping, fishing, hiking, emergency disaster preparedness and other scenarios. Portable power stations are small in size and light in weight, which are ideal for outdoor use, and can be equipped with solar panels for charging, providing longer endurance for portable power stations.

In 2021, 43.6% of the shipments of portable power plants are for outdoor scenarios, 41.5% for emergency scenarios and 14.9% for other scenarios. The change in the way residents travel in the post-epidemic era is the main reason for the explosion of the portable power plant market. As the epidemic continues to recur, people have no choice but to choose local activities, so people’s demand for outdoor activities is stronger, and the epidemic makes the multi-person group travel travel reduced. Only smaller family outdoor activities can be conducted to meet people’s social needs.

In the past, the power supply in outdoor and emergency situations was mainly provided by small oil-fired generators, but oil-fired generators are noisy, complicated to operate and pollute the environment, and diesel generators are large and relatively limited in many scenarios, which has given birth to portable power stations. Portable power station small size, light weight, strong power, environmental protection and pollution-free advantages, so that it quickly occupy the market
