CPAP Users beware--this unit will automatically shutoff after ~6 hours with less than 10W being drawn. I discovered the hard way why my CPAP shutoff in the middle of the night while I was camping. My CPAP power supply/brick states 50W but without the humidifier it only draws about 6W according to the Jackery display.

I discovered this is the main complaint about this product. Otherwise, it is a solid product and their customer support is terrific.

One of the negatives of the jackery is that it doesn't use an mppt charge controller if you are going to recharge with a solar panel. Similary price Rockpal does that. Rockpal recharges waaay faster because of it.

However, this jackery does have a regulated DC port, unlike the rockpal. So the voltage stays the same as battery levels go down.

Neither are perfect, sure there may be other differences to note.

mAh doesn't really make sense for a device like this. It would be 168,000 mAh if you're outputting 1.43V, so comparing it to a AA battery. For comparison it to a 5V USB battery it would be 240,000 mWh/5V = 48,000 mAh. For 110VAC, this would be 2,181 mAh.

I was tempted until I saw No Quick Charge or USB-C,
It has 12VDC and 110VAC outlets, you can plug any adapter into it. Anker puts QC and PD on pretty much every device they make, but they don't even have those on their equivalent PowerHouse.

Thanks, I was thinking your typical 5v, your answer was helpful.

I hd and return. While it's questionable at best that it shuts off when idle... I mean it shouldn't, it should stay "ready"... But that's understandable. . But it Makes no sense that it auto shuts off under low usage. Went for another brand that acts as a more traditional backup power pack/generator.

I'd recommend Expert Power 200. it has 2 outlets and charges faster. About 3hrs on my 100 watt solar panel. This one limits the input. It's for a great cause tho
