For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Jackery to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Jackery Portable Power Station Generator 240, which offers 240Wh (67000mAh) of power for camping, emergencies, and more.

Jackery makes a wide range of battery packs and portable power stations in different sizes, and the Power Station 240 is one of its largest.

Priced at $250, the Power Station 240 is ideal to have on hand for power outages, and it's also useful for camping, RV use, and other activities where you need a lot of portable power.

There's an AC outlet, a car port, and two 2.4A USB-A outputs so you can charge up multiple devices at once. According to Jackery, it can charge a smartphone 18 times, an iPad Pro 6 times, a laptop up to 4 times, and a GoPro 40 times.

Despite the power it's packing, the Power Station 240 is portable, measuring in at nine inches tall, seven and a half inches wide, and 5 inches deep. It weighs 6.8 pounds and has a handle at the top to make it easy to carry.

There's an LCD display at the front that lets you know how much charge is left, and a built-in LED flashlight is included for when the power is out.

There are multiple ways to recharge the Jackery 240, including using a 50W Jackery solar panel (needs to be purchased separately), a carport, or an AC wall outlet. It takes approximately eight hours to recharge via the standard methods, or 10 hours with the add-on solar panel.

Nice piece of kit for a give away. MR has definitely stepped up it's game. Good job.

It wouldn't be a give away without someone asking so here goes.
Why is this only available in the US and most of US Jr. (minus Quebec)? :p:D

Because many countries (and Quebec in Canada) have onerous laws for contests. They make having a truly international contest prohibitively expensive. Here ('https://www.thebalanceeveryday.com/why-are-so-many-competitions-void-in-quebec-896835') is a summary of the silly rules in Quebec. Just google (or duckduck) to find the rules in other countries.

There's an added reason for this particular contest: the 60Hz ~115v provided by the outlet on this box would only be directly usable by AC devices made for the North American market -- and nobody uses dongles when camping. ;)

This thing looks pretty cool, but it would be awesome if it had jumper cables attached to jump start a car. I have a similar battery with jumper cables, but you can only plug in one usb device at a time.

Wow! The solar panel accessory for this power supply is about the same price as the unit.

Yeah but it’s a really good solar panel. It actually does around 70 W for the rated 100 which is pretty good. (100w model)
