People who spend a lot of time in RVs tend to also spend a lot of time thinking about power sources. As soon as we are away from shore power, we suddenly realize that most of our modern lifestyles center around powered appliances. And while many of us want to leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind us (for a while at least), most of us still want our toys. Even if we happen to be on an isolated beach in the middle of nowhere. So we are sharing news of a great new product that offers multiple options for charging up almost all of our gadgets. We think the Jackery Explorer 240 Camping Generator will be especially useful when we boondock. It’s a generator, but without the gasoline or propane. See what you think!
Jackery Announces New Explorer Product Line
Solar-Ready, Lightweight, Portable Power Provides Best-In-Class Value in Camping Generators
Jackery, a trusted leader in portable power stations, has just introduced an expanded family of Lithium-based, solar-ready portable power solutions. The Jackery Explorer Series is starting out with the Explorer 240 Camping Generator model.
The new Jackery Explorer Series, designed with the outdoor enthusiast in mind, offers an optional 50-watt Explorer Solar Panel that is foldable for optimal portability and an unlimited power source (see further details below in this post). The Explorer 240 Camping Generator boasts an efficient 7-hour charge time plugged into a wall outlet or car, and a 9-10 hour charge time with the solar panel in full sunlight. The Jackery Explorer 240 includes a variety of ports to support almost any device, including AC, DC, and USB power sources. Holding 240 watts of power fully charged, the Explorer 240 is capable of charging a MacBook up to 4 times, an iPhone X up to 20 times, or a GoPro over 35 times.
Z. Sun, CEO at Jackery, says:
“Modern campers want to stay connected while off-grid, whether it be to entertainment, productivity or practical devices. Now, consumers can be prepared and have fun with a Jackery Explorer. The Explorer line-up allows Jackery to deliver tremendous value for a portable power station that is designed with safety and flexibility in mind.”
The Explorer 240 includes a smart display and built-in battery management system for maximum efficiency, while ensuring that users are aware of exactly how much power remains in the unit, further enabling the outdoor adventurer to avoid running out of power at an inopportune moment. Built with portability as a priority, the Explorer 240 features a built-in handle and rugged casing to protect the honeycomb battery pack from the dents and dings that come with any great adventure. Weighing in at just over a mere 6.5 pounds, the Explorer 240 Camping Generator is a necessity for explorers of any size and strength.
The foldable Jackery 50W Solar Panel can be used to charge the Jackery Explorer 240 Camping Generator. The photo below shows how the Jackery Solar Panel folds up into a carry bag, and the diagram shows what it looks like and what it can charge.
