Jackery 160 Explorer 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.
|Jackery Power Station||Capacity||Output||iPhone Recharges||Weight|
|Explorer 160||167Wh||100W||12||3.84 lbs|
|Honda 290||290Wh||200W||17||6.6 lbs|
|Explorer 240||240Wh||200W||18||6.6 lbs|
|Explorer 440||440Wh||400W||28||12.57 lbs|
|Explorer 500||500Wh||500W||34||13.32 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.
