These portable power stations have the fastest charging speeds in the country

These are not for load shedding, they are for occasional use like camping or contracting work.

Their battery packs are not replaceable and have shorter cycle life.

Get yourself a solar inverter trolley with a solar battery, unless you absolutely need something you can carry around.
 
These are just batteries, they are not "portable power stations" ffs, I absolutely hate that branding and that its somehow stuck.

What, they have more than just a battery, they pretty well have everything a normal solar setup has, just smaller - Portable Power Station.

No, they are inverters and batteries, they are not portable power stations. They do not produce power, they merely store it for use at a different time.

So my mistake, they're more than just batteries, they're inverters with batteries.

They also have a charge controller, like a normal solar system.

And you connect a solar panel to them, just like a normal solar system, and bam, they produce power.

You don't seem to know very much about portable power stations.....

OK boss..
 
I've got 2 of the Geewiz 2kWh 2kW stations. Had them for 9 months now and very happy with them.
Bought a 2kWh trolley before them, but it is now just standing there. Its efficiency was quite bad compared to the Geewiz units
 
You have no idea what you are talking about.

They all have solar input and
LiFePO4 batteries that will last just as long as any other LiFePO4 batteries used in home solar systems.
OK and how many of them do you reckon have solar panels attached to them?

If one buys a sometimes bundled solar panel then they could be called that, but only should they include a panel. They do include the relevant controller to allow for solar charging.

Many of the LiFePO ones eg Anker or Ecoflow have 3,000 cycles till 80% capacity longetivity and a 5 year warranty. So they could be used for loadshedding for those who either can't or don't want to invest in dedicated solar setups with inverters and at best need to run some lights, routers and laptops during load shedding.

Often the warranty on these will be longer than the trolley and they look better. It depends what you need I suppose.

We have a Bluetti 500W, an Ecoflow Delta 2 with additional 1Kwh battery and an Ecoflow River 2 Max, all switched off and on standby at 80-90% charge.

That's not the point is it.
You said it is just a battery. It's not. It's a compact solar setup.

Some people use your traditional solar setup and don't connect panels and just recharge their batteries when the power comes back on.

But it is the point.. They don't produce power they merely store it from some other source, be it a solar panel or the grid.

And people who use a 'traditional' inverter and batteries with no panels don't have a power station in their home.

What? Yes, that is what all solar setups do :unsure: Or do you know of some kind of new solar setup that doesn't use panels and the sun, or the grid.

So does everything else on earth.
