500W pure sine wave inverter
The built-in pure sine wave inverter has a total continuous rating of 500W and a surge rating of 1000W. This means you can power a mains appliance rated up to 500W, such as laptops, hair straighteners and blenders.
The powerbank has a built-in MPPT charge controller, meaning you can recharge the power station using a portable solar panel. As well as solar, it’s also possible to recharge the Jackery using a mains plug socket or a 12V car socket.
