Looks like a good deal. Good for keeping your electronics charge during power outages.

Ehhhh, if you're going to lose power enough in the next 3 years... maybe.
With non replaceable batteries, I wouldn't count on this beyond that.
If you loose power frequently, a small generator can be about the same cost, and should work beyond 3 years.

If you just want to be ready and have any cordless power tools, getting the USB charging adapter is my preferred route. Since you'll get use out of those batteries even if there isn't an outage during the batteries lifetimes.

While "BigBlue" is great and it certainly serves a purpose if you really wanted some reserve power wouldn't it be better to get something like a deep cycle battery and a power inverter?

I'd like to have a good backup for my Cpap and "BigBlue" should do the trick but for less money I think you could do better?

This is best for no sound camping. Meaning that's the ideal use case is outdoors use where power isn't an option and a generator isn't viable either because you want peace of mind (not an abrasive engine sound running) or you would rather not amp your music above the roar of a low wattage generator.

At the amount of juice it holds, still has some uses but is probably shy of the ability to run appliances for any period and might be a bit much for your normal device charging needs. Extended period of off grid charging I guess?

Seems this is too much power for small use cases and too little for larger uses cases.

They work great at all day events. My sister has one and she used it to power their phones and music at a 4th of July party. It unfortunately died about the time I showed up. But I was holding a larger battery so the party was restarted.

That being said I do have a larger lifepo4 battery that is over 4x the size of this with an amazing inverter. I could pick up more batteries from amazon on the cheap and run them together. It's built to handle that without issue. Add in a small gas generator and now the batteries can be rechargeable outside with no conversion loss.

As it is I have roughly 4000 watts but no generator. I have solar but that is just another example of me wasting money trying to be clean when I could have put that same money into a much more useful gas generator. Never the less, I could still mange to keep things cold and a few lights on in the summer for a couple of days with my current setup. Adding in a gas generator and my only limit would be my amount of remaining gas.

Quote from FaithfulMitten261 :
Overpriced
Your paying for convenience. You could buy 3 8ah lifepo4 batteries from amazon for 90 bucks. But then you'd have to get them to work together in parallel. Plus add in a nice inverter to be able to use it. Don't forget the charger. That only makes sense if you plan to take advantage of it and initially your not saving much if anything and spending more time.
