Solar panel partner: what is outdoor power supply

This article mainly introduces outdoor power supply: including the components of outdoor power supply, advantages and how to choose a suitable outdoor power supply.

Introduction to outdoor power supply

Outdoor power is a portable power station that uses portable solar panels to charge batteries, and the stored energy can be used to charge or operate other devices. It is a multifunctional power supply with built-in lithium-ion battery and can store electric energy, also known as portable energy storage power supply.

As climate change continues to impact our planet in the form of extreme weather, heat, rising sea levels and more, we must find sustainable solutions for our daily lives. This includes turning to portable energy storage to create and store renewable energy for all your backup power needs.

Outdoor power supplies are popular in outdoor camping, RV travel, outdoor live broadcast, outdoor construction, location shooting and emergency backup power supply. Equivalent to a small portable charging station, it has the characteristics of light weight, large capacity, high power, long life and strong stability. It can also output common power interfaces such as DC and AC, which can supply power for laptops, drones, photography lights, projectors, rice cookers, electric fans, kettles and other equipment.

Outdoor Power Components

Compared with traditional generators powered by natural gas, diesel or propane, outdoor power supplies mainly consist of the following components:

Portable Solar Panel (Solar Folding Pack) - harvests energy from the sun.

Rechargeable Batteries - Store energy captured by solar panels.

Solar Charge Controller - Manages the energy going into the battery.

Solar Inverter - converts solar energy into usable electricity.

Advantages of Outdoor Power

What are the advantages compared with traditional generators:

Outdoor power supplies are less noisy.

Traditional generators run on fossil fuels, which contribute to air pollution and climate change. As an added bonus, you get solar power for free instead of expensive fossil fuels.

Easy to use as they require no oiling, refueling, starting and maintenance. Just turn it on, connect your device and draw power from it

Wear and tear on moving parts in emergency generators can lead to high maintenance costs. Solar generators have no moving parts and do not rely on natural gas to generate electricity. This design helps reduce the likelihood of paying for repairs.

Lighter than traditional gas generators, it's ideal for outdoor activities, camping, emergencies, and general mobility. Some of them even feature luggage-like pulls for enhanced portability.

How to choose a suitable outdoor power supply (energy storage)?

There are different sizes and shapes, so choosing an energy storage that meets your individual needs should be a top priority. The amount of power needed should be the primary consideration in sizing outdoor energy storage. For example, if you plan to use it outdoors, you should calculate how much energy your equipment and appliances use when comparing the storage capacity of outdoor power supplies.

How much power can be provided.

How long does it take to charge.

What is the function.

Warranty duration
