    Needing something to power my CPAP machine while camping, I chose the Jackery Explorer 240 and it has surpassed both my needs and expectations. Here are my experiences using the E 240.Prior to my first time of camping use, I needed to trial this new setup at home. My equipment consisted of the Jackery E 240 which comes with a standard 110 V AC power charging cable, a 12 V DC car port power recharging cable, and a nice, zippered pouch to carry the cables. My CPAP is a Philips Respironics Dream Station with the standard 110 V power cord. Research led me to purchase the compatible 12 V DC power cord in order to run the Dream Station from the 12 V car port from the Jackery. The humidifier unit of the CPAP was disconnected to conserve energy.For my first trial night at home, I plugged the CPAP into the fully charged Jackery AC output using the 110 V AC cord, just like I would plug it into the wall. That night I observed a power output of 8-12 W during operation, slept for 8.8 hours, and dropped the Jackery power level to 68%. Having recharged the Jackery back to 100%, the next night I recorded a power output of 8-11 W, slept for 7.1 hours, and dropped the power level to 76%. Both nights my CPAP machine worked perfectly well, just as normal. So far, so good.I was now ready to simulate use of this new system under camping conditions. Having recharged the E 240 back to 100%, and now using the Philips Respironics 12 V DC power cord (bought on Amazon for $29.99), my observed power consumption was much less. I recorded a power output of just 4 W, slept for 7.3 hours, and dropped the Jackery power level to just 86%. Wanting to see how the consecutive nights use would drain the power, I did not recharge the 240. Next night saw a 3 W of power output, slept for 6 hours, and dropped the Jackery to 62%. 2 nights of use and I still had well over 50% juice left! Once again, I’m finding the CPAP machine to be functioning as normal, with no interruptions of air flow/pressure. This trial gave me the confidence I would be able to use the E 240 to power my CPAP while camping.5 nights of CPAP use while camping, plugged into the 12 V DC car port, produced very similar results as my test at home. With an average of 8 hours of use each night, and varying power outputs of 3-5 W, the Jackery E 240 lost its charge as follows: 90%, 75%, 62%, 43%, and finished at a very respectable 28% capacity. I had enough juice left over to recharge my phone!On 2 separate occasions I did experience the automatic power shut-off feature. Jackery explains this is as being an energy savings feature. Evidently my CPAP was drawing such a small amount of power, over an extended enough time period, the E 240 shut off. When this would happen, my CPAP shut down; I woke up and pushed the 12 V DC power button back on and started a new time cycle. No harm done. I found this to be a great thing–that much more power left in reserve.My disclaimer: these results are based upon my CPAP machine and its prescribed settings. Individual results may vary. Also of importance was using the correct 12 V DC power cord designated specifically for my brand of CPAP machine (I would not risk this piece of medical equipment to some, generic, 12 V DC power adapter). In conclusion, the Jackery Explorer 240 power pack unit exceeded my expectations and made me very happy to know that I can continue to enjoy camping while using the healthful benefits of my CPAP machine. Here’s to good camping and good nights of sleep!

     Finally got my hands on this beautiful and clean piece of electrical storage goodness and was pumped to try it out. I already own an Explorer 160 and needed something with a little more juice and the 240 is the perfect upgrade.My girlfriend isn’t much of a camper but she said if I could make it glamping style, kind of like Tom Haverford did, she might give it a go, so my first attempt required me to setup my rooftop deck to entice her into how great being outdoors can be.To start it off, I lined the deck with some lights, and setup a dark room tent (one of those Coleman’s that keeps out most light) with a comfy queen sized mattress and two sleeping bags in case it gets too cold. To make it a little more posh, I brought not just a 13″ Chromebook Tablet, but also, a portable projector in case we wanted to really do it big! Lucky for me the Explorer 240 has enough power to not only use all those items, but also run the air compressor for the mattress and charge up our phones. I got to say, this things really delivered! It had enough juice to run our devices and keep the led lights on until the sun came up and still had about a 45% charge. She loved this idea and is excited for our Christmas Trip out to Joshua Tree next month :)Jackery really knocked it out of the park with this unit! The only thing else I’d like is a carry case for the unit, luckily I was able to get one for $40 also on Amazon.

    I ordered this power station knowing it probably wouldn’t get to me until after Hurricane Florence had hit. This seller knew that too, so they took it upon themselves to send me a really nice, large battery pack charger at no cost to make sure I would have something before the storm to get me through. Who does that?I never write reviews, but I just had to let others know what a wonderful kind gesture this seller did for me, a stranger, facing a hurricane. The power station came the following week after the storm as expected, but it was fine, because I had this battery backup (great product by the way) that kept my phones and tablets fully charged.In a world of confusion and chaos, what an amazing act of kindness. I would buy anything from this seller!!!!

    This battery worked great for my sons cpap machine. After one full night with the humidifier part of the cpap machine and the main part of the cpap machine, the battery still had 3/4 of the battery left. The size is also great for camping trips with Boy Scouts.

    OK, so I’ll admit that I’m a Jackery fan. I love their stuff. I travel with a Titan or Powerbar (depending on the trip) and they’ve treated me extremely well despite the abuse I put them through.When I saw that this had been released, I decided I needed one. Last fall I moved to New England, and over the winter had several friends lose power as a result of winter storms. I decided this would make a decent stand-in until I could decide if I need a real generator or not. I was also planning to use it for camping, tailgating, and the like.Since I’m planning to use this in an emergency, I thought I should put it through it’s paces a bit to make sure it wasn’t going to leave me high and dry. The first thing I did when it got to my house was plug it in to charge. I’m not sure how long it took; I just left it overnight. The next day, I took it out and started playing with it. I started out easy- I set it out at a BBQ and let people use it to charge phones and whatnot. Then I started ramping things up a bit, and used it to power a boom box. Before long, folks were getting in on the act and seeing what other stuff it would power. It ran a shop light when it started to get dark and the kids still wanted to play in the yard. We hooked a power strip up to the AC port and ran the aforementioned boom box, shop light, some string lights on the patio, and then (just to see if we could) a box fan that was in the mud room. The fan was a bit much- while it did run, it wasn’t quite as fast as when plugged into the wall, so we decided that was probably the limit. Still, and impressive unit.Over the next week, my wife used it constantly to charge her phone and other small things. I never plugged it back in for a recharge in the entire week.Here’s the kicker: this afternoon, when it was 90 degrees and humid, my wife called to say that the power was out. This woman does not like being hot. She came up with a solution- plug one of the window A/C units into the Power Station. I told her that it was probably too much current draw and likely wouldn’t work, but I was on my way. By the time I got home, the power was back on, but during the blackout, my wife tried her idea anyway, and much to my surprise, it actually worked. Apparently, this thing has the juice to power a 10,000 BTU window A/C unit.I had originally planned this for emergency power, and boy does it deliver. I also went ahead and ordered the solar panel, but haven’t played with that one yet. I’ll write something up on it when I do.I’ve included a few pics, but the bottom line is this: this thing is absolutely worth it. It kept me from dealing with a very hot, grumpy wife in the middle of the summer, and that’s a win.

    I bought the Jackery unit recently to take on a camping trip. I used the unit to power my Meade 12 inch telescope and charge my phone and iPad.The unit charged up relatively quickly from the wall plug. I didn’t splurge on their solar panel which seemed over priced to other solar panels I saw on Amazon.The telescope worked flawlessly using the cigarette plug. I have a Meade power tank (nickel battery) that couldn’t last more than a few hours. The Jackery lasted two nights, running the scope from 9 pm to about 1 am both nights without charging. Also charged the phone 2x and the iPad 1x using the USB ports on the unit and after all that the unit still had 77% power left.The power meter is a neat feature.The unit feels solid overall.I will update the review since the unit is new and I cannot attest to its durability. There is a 2 year manufacturers warranty but that could be useless if Jackery isn’t around in the future to honor it.

    Bought the battery for camping power and to temporarily run an Espar diesel heater until the full power system is installed. Product has a lot of decent features and charges nicely with a Renogy 100W PV panel. You dont need a charge controller, just an MC4 to 8mm jack connecting the panel directly to the 8mm charging port. The absolute fail with this product, however, is that the 120V and 12V sockets (maybe USB as well) time out after three hours and turn off if the current draw is not “high” enough. Talked to Jackery support and supposedly this is something under 10W. Even though my heater cycles between 6 and 27W, it still shut off after three hours. So know that if you are powering something with low wattage, the battery will shut off after three hours. Once it made it through the night, maybe because the heater ran more, so its unpredictable. Had to return the battery for this reason. Customer support was decent and prompt, but communication was sometimes difficult to interpret because of the support persons English language skill. Would have appreciated if Jackery mentioned the time out feature in product descriptions!Update August 2019: Jackery has been working to upgrade the <10W timeout feature to run 12 hours before shutting down instead of 3 to 6. They have been very proactive in listening to users and improving their products. For new models with this feature I have upgraded the review to 5 stars.

    This product works well, but there is a challenge for CPAP users that needs to be considered. The “passthrough” power on the 110v outlet is not actually passthrough. What this means is that the 3-hr cutoff time affects this outlet, as well, so if you intend to use this device as a UPS during storms while you sleep, you’ll need to manually turn the device on each night. Also, f you are not running your humidifier, many CPAP machines do not consume 10+ watts of power – so the battery will turn off, and subsequently the CPAP machine will power off, every 3 hours all night long. The way around this is to have your humidifier running so that you draw more than 10 watts of power.As I mentioned, the product works well. However, the auto-cutoff feature and lack of true passthrough functionality could be problematic for CPAP users with severe sleep apnea. Please be aware of this and be sure that your CPAP unit is drawing at least the 10+ watts of power required to keep the Power Station “awake.”I hope Jackery might consider issuing a firmware update that gives the ability to completely defeat the auto-cutoff feature, and/or to make the “wall plug” port exempt when the Power Station is connected to grid power.I would also like to take a moment to mention that Jackery’s customer service group is exceptional and has already reached out to me directly regarding my concerns. Hopefully a method of modifying/disabling the 3-hour inactivity timer will be included in the future.

    This is honestly one of the best purchases I have ever made! The ability to keep all my devices charged all the time has been a godsend!All summer long if we were not camping we were at the ball diamonds. Even though the fun would begin as soon as the weekend started so did the work as a videographer/photographer.Having the ability to keep my laptop charged for editing, my camera batteries charged for shooting, and my phone and iPad charged for marketing was an essential part of business.It was also great to keep the kids and wife occupied during down time when their devices would get low on power.Anyone who’s looking for a christmas gift idea, don’t miss it, everything needs power these days and being as portable as this power station I highly recommend it!

    Tailgating Challenge

    We all want power. We all want to watch tv at the tailgate and with that we have to have power. This usually means lugging a heavy, noisy, gas sucking generator out to the tailgate. That has never been my favorite thing to do, but now there is an easier way with what I call the Tesla of generators. The Jackery Explorer 240 is a solar powered generator ready to take your tailgate to a cleaner and greener level.The Jackery Explorer 240 gives you outdoor portable power that can help power lights, phones, laptops, TVs, blenders and much more. It sports features such as surge protection, short circuit protection, temperature control and pure sine wave. To get started you simply charge the Explorer 240 up at home, as it is essentially a large power station that can store the power and then output it to a variety of energy thirsty products. There is a battery % indicator, along with Input Watts and Output Watts on the digital display panel. The Jackery Explorer 240 has 2 USB outputs and one AC output to push the power to your devices.The Jackery Explorer 240 can power a TV for over three hours. What if a game lasts for longer than three hours? That could be a problem unless you have the optional Solar Panel that works in conjunction with the Explorer 240 to take the power of the sun and turn it into power for your electronics. The Solar Panel provides power to your devices, but it won’t hold power in a bank. Essentially if the sun is out then the tv (or other device) is powered up,if the sun goes down the tv goes cuts off.I did a live video (see below) using the Jackery Explorer 240 and used a high power blender in the testing of the product. The blender fired right up on low speed. Once I flipped it into high speed it cut off. Not sure if the huge surge in power was too much for this generator?In all the other tests I’ve done with items that draw a constant charge I did not experience any problems.A few things that I really love about the Jackery Explorer 240:-It is extremely portable. It only weighs a few pounds and I can pick it up with 1 finger.-Easy to use just charge it and then use it-Solar Panel is easy to use and also very portable-Digital displayMy wish list for the Jackery Explorer 240:-Wish it could run multiple applicances that use the AC plug (it only has 1)-Wish the solar panel would store power for later useOverall, this is an excellent product for tailgating and camping. The Jackery Explorer 240 is the most portable and easiest to use generator I have gotten my hands on to date. If you’re ready to get rid of the gas guzzling, noisy, clunky generator you currently have then visit Jackery today.
