They really need to stop calling these stupid power banks "generators." They're not generators by any definition. They're just a battery with an inverter built in. That isn't generating a damn thing, except heat.

Gets really tiring when you've got alerts set for generators and these stupid power banks constantly showing up here marketed as "generators."

These are solar generators I think. If you attach a solar panel, then it becomes a type of generator, no? Where solar becomes the "fuel" the powers the system.

I think that's the part you are missing....

With a dc to dc adapter, this one and others like it can power a cpap/bipap machine for days. That's just one example. Plenty of useful stuff in that 150 to 300 watt range like cpap machines.

good for travel and emegency home backup (if you can't use a fuel generator)

Camping trips and pg&e red flag outages to name a couple.
These things are nice for running lights, charging phones, dslr batteries, laptops, air pumps, etc.

Can't speak for this unit though.

In your example, the solar panel is the generator. This generates nothing. It's a battery pack with an inverter, NOT a generator.

Agreed. It's just a battery.

That said, I have a slightly smaller Rockpals unit and it's a rockstar for portable power. I use it to run a couple fans and a small pump for a DIY misting system for 2-3 hours on Saturday mornings to keep a pack of 8yo cheerleaders from passing out in triple digit temps. Sure, I could have saved some cash and just used a marine battery, but hauling around 3lbs vs, what, 40lbs? Nope. I'm very happy with this purchase.

This is a shill post. OP's posting history clearly demonstrates that.

That's still makes it a converter technically because it converts solar into electricity and it looks like it uses that just to recharge the battery pack not to run devices. Solar is by no means reliable enough though. Figure cloudy or rainy day or basically no sun means no recharge plus the panel has to be bought separately 🙄so this is still mainly battery pack for small power draw devices like small electronics

This is a good price for this unit. I bought it at $221 and that was decent deal. Directly competes with Jackery packs. I made a video review of this unit with some real world tests. (not monetized or sponsored). https://youtu.be/MsIwgI2X5Ic

A solar panel would be the generator. That solar panel is sold separately. So this is not a generator.

This is just a power bank with an inverter inside.

By that definition, any rechargable battery is a 'solar generator'. Hey, who knew? I drive a solar hybrid car! I agree with abqnm666; it's a misleading, specious term.

Here's how the analogy works:

Solar is the fuel... Solar is captured via panel and inserted into power bank. Just like fuel is "captured" from ground, refined and then put into a tank in fuel generator...

the Power bank is the "tank" that stores the energy, just like a tank stores the fuel in a fuel generator

Both have inverters that convert said energy into DC or AC power

Both then get depleted and need to be replenished by same fuel. They key point is the solar panel, got have those to be a true generator. But this is, at worst, an incomplete generator. But it is a generator with the solar panel. And those solar panels are rarely sold as a bundle with power bank because it's much cheaper for people to buy them individually....
