The lifespan of a portable power station depends on two key factors - how well the product is maintained and how often it is used. A cycle is when you use the product from a full charge to zero charge. So if you use your portable power station a few times a week, it may only last a year or two. But if you use it infrequently, it can last much longer.

 

What can you run on a portable power station?

Portable power stations can keep your power tools, phones and other electronics charged and running smoothly. These versatile, lunchbox-sized mobile power stations can be taken along to construction sites, camping or other places where you need power. They are also useful as a backup power source during power outages when you need to keep your phone on or your basic devices running.

 

Pay attention to the estimated watt hours each brand provides in its specifications to determine which model is best for the equipment you want to power.

 

If a company says its portable power station has 200 watt-hours of power, it should be able to power equipment with an output of 1 watt for about 200 hours.  Remember to consider the wattage of the equipment you are powering and then the number of watt hours your portable power station will need.

Can the power station run a fridge?

Possibly, depending on the fridge and the portable power station.

 

For example, this standard refrigerator has an estimated annual energy consumption of 608 kWh. This is equivalent to 1.67 kWh per day, or 1,670 Watt-hours per day.

 

1,670 watt-hours per day is equivalent to less than 70 watt-hours per hour. If you have a short power outage and only need to power your fridge, a 200 Watt-hour power station can run it for almost three hours. You will need a higher watt-hour estimate to keep your fridge running for longer. Mini fridges last much longer than larger fridges.
