Jackery Launches Lightest Solar Generators Yet
Jackery has expanded its Plus Series of power stations by putting an emphasis on portability and safety. The company has unveiled three new models that are among the lightest in their respective classes, making them easier to use both at home and at the campsite. These models join the already impressive Solar Generator 2000 Plus to offer consumers a range of options for their portable power needs.
The three new models include the Jackery 300 Plus, 700 Plus, and 1000 Plus, each of which is powered by a LiFePO4 battery. This subtle—but noteworthy—upgrade not only improves safety but enhances the longevity of the devices. These types of power cells are much less combustible than previous models and have the added benefit of giving the solar generators a lifespan of more than ten years, even with daily use.
Each of the new power stations comes with its own set of unique features and capabilities to help it stand out in an increasingly competitive market. For instance, the 300 Plus is one of the smallest and most portable models ever built, making it a compelling option for backcountry excursions. The device weighs just 8.3 lbs. and comes with a 40-watt solar panel that can recharge its batteries in just four hours. This should make it very popular with hikers, backpackers, tailgaters, beachgoers, or anyone else who needs ultra-portable power.
The Jackery 700 Plus remains relatively lightweight but amps up the power and functionality. The unit offers a 680-watt-hour capacity and an output of up to 1000 watts. That’s enough to power small appliances, cameras, mobile devices, and laptops, even when wandering off the grid. This model is perfect for car campers, vanlifers, or those who need a lightweight and powerful model that doesn’t take up much space.
Finally, the Jackery 1000 Plus fills a nice gap between the highly portable smaller models and the much larger power stations already in the Jackery lineup. It stores up to 1264Wh of energy and can output as much as 2000W of power. It is expandable, too, connecting to Jackery’s external add-on battery packs to increase its storage capacity to as much as 5056Wh if needed. This level of versatility allows the unit to stand out from the competition, offering an intriguing blend of portability and functionality.
As if that wasn’t enough, the 1000 Plus also has quick charging capabilities, allowing it to fully replenish its batteries in under 100 minutes when plugged into a wall outlet. It includes two USB-C PD 100W charging ports and can be controlled remotely using the Jackery app. It is rugged enough to survive most accidental drops and is certified to operate in temperatures up to 140ºF. Te device can even serve as an uninterruptible power supply during unexpected power outages.
The Jackery 300 Plus is available now for $399.99. The 1000 Plus will go on sale on September 1, although the company is currently taking preorders through its website. The 700 Plus is scheduled for release on September 26 and will be sold exclusively at Newegg.com.
