Jackery Explorer 500 Portable Power Station
Reviewed another one of these portable power boxes. Not bad capacity considering the small size but like the others, I've seen or tested the recharge time is a little long.

Whats Inside a Jackery Portable Power Station?
In this video, I take apart the Jackery Explorer 500 so we can get a look at what's inside and how it's built. Overall I was impressed with the build quality. The item is easy to disassemble and service.
Connectors and soldering are of high quality and fairly rugged looking. The layout is neat with plenty of room. Quality screws hold the case together. Thumbs up.

Good review. Beefy case looks like it could take a hard drop or two and the components look well thought out and well assembled.
In this video, I let you know how the Jackery 500 power box has performed for us after around 6 months of use. While boondocking this winter, I tried to use it for various tasks, and it performed well. The only major downside to these boxes is the slow recharge time in the neighborhood of 8-12 hours and the price $499 isn't exactly cheap!
At the end of the video, I give you a peek at their latest offerings they sent me for review. The new bigger, and more powerful 1000 model along with the Jackery 100 watt folding solar panel. Stay tuned as I will be reviewing them soon,
