Jackery provides clean portable power to the masses

Since being founded, Jackery has become one of the largest producers of portable power and solar utilities. In a focus to tackle climate change head-on, Jackery looks to deliver its power stations and solar panels to the world to provide clean energy for outdoor living.

That starts with the Explorer series – a lineup of portable power stations built to combine high quality and clean energy mobility.

At only 6.6 lbs, this Jackery power station can be easily carried by its solid top handle, so make sure those kids pitch in when you take them camping! The Explorer 240 is easy for anyone to use, offering a simple push-button operation to activate any outlet you need on the go.

Another big perk of the Explorer 240 from Jackery is its versatility and performance in recharging. You can replenish your power station by using a wall outlet, car outlet, or generator.

For those looking to keep their energy as clean as possible, the Explorer 240 also has a built-in MPPT controller, delivering efficient recharging as its own solar generator. Note, this method requires the SolarSaga 60W solar panel (sold separately).

Aside from the charging times to 100% listed above, your new Jackery Explorer 400 can get you to an 80% charge in the following time frames:

  • Wall outlet – 3.5 hours
  • Car outlet – 5 hours
  • Solar input (w/SolarSaga 60W panel) – 5.5 hours

Additionally, the Explorer 240 allows for pass-through charging, enabling you to continue to replenish your devices while your Jackery power station simultaneously is recharged itself.

If paired with the aforementioned solar panel, you could realistically work from your campsite without any dependency on the electrical grid.
