Why Buy a Portable Power Station?

May. 27, 2021

In an age when we can charge our smartphones with a battery pack that fits in our pants pockets, isn't there an easier way to restore power after a storm? Or to power a campsite without the constant buzz of a gasoline generator?

That's the promise of portable power stations (also known as battery-powered inverter generators). Essentially, they are oversized rechargeable batteries (roughly the size of a tabletop microwave oven) that you plug into a typical 110-volt outlet to keep them fully charged. 

Portable power stations are simple battery-powered backup devices that provide you with power output when you need it. Once a portable power station is fully charged, you can carry it for long periods of time without worrying about electronic devices because you can plug it into the portable power station while you are on the go. Since these power stations are essential for many users, there are dozens of different options to choose from. To purchase a portable power station,  the portable power station supplier reminds you to check the following attributes first.

Battery capacity

Since every portable power station is powered by a battery, it is important to check the capacity of the battery before purchasing the station. A high capacity battery will be able to provide more power for a longer period of time than a low capacity battery. Battery capacity is expressed in watt hours.

Surge Power

The surge power rating in a portable power station is essentially the maximum power output. This power rating is higher than the standard output rating of the workstation. Be sure to keep surge power in mind, as you cannot draw more power than the surge rating of the workstation.


The primary goal of a portable power station is to be carried around for a variety of applications. If the station is too heavy or bulky to carry around, it will not be easy to use the portable station on long trips. Therefore, make sure your equipment is light and compact.


When on duty, you can safely run a portable power plant in-house because it does not produce any emissions. They have enough capacity to power a number of small devices for a short period of time. Using many different outlets (standard 120v outlets, USB ports and DC chargers), you can also use the station to charge electronic devices. And these units often come with portable solar panels to increase charging capacity and extend run time.
