Jackery 160 Review

Jackery Explorer 160 Review.

Jackery is trending to become a top seller in 2019.

The standout feature is Jackery Explorer’s lightweight size — they’re offered in 3 sizes, but weigh much less than similar portable generators.

  • Explorer 160:  3.84 lbs
  • Explorer 240:  6.6 lbs
  • Explorer 440:  12.57 lbs

Each is powered w/ a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

Being battery-powered, you won’t have to worry about toxic fumes or exhaust. You can also safely use them for indoor activities.

For my review, I will focus on the Jackery Explorer 160.

Jackery 160 Portable Power Station:

The Explorer 160 is perfect for powering smaller appliances.

Continuous Appliance: 100W

Peak Appliance: 150W

It includes a new Battery Management System (BMS) which helps protect the appliances it is powering.

BMS protects against:

  • Short circuiting (power outages)
  • Influx in voltage
  • Temperature control

For powering appliances, here’s a few examples:

Smartphones 12-15 times
Tablet 5-7 times
Camera 20-24 times
Laptop 2-3 times
Mini Fridge 3-4 hours

Jackery Explorer 160 is a dependable back-up power supply in case of emergency — not heavy duty, but it is a dependable power source for any type of communication device.

In case of power outage, you can even charge your home WiFi router + you computer (or tablet).
