MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Portable Honda 290 Power Station for Charging All Your Devices From Jackery

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Jackery to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Honda 290 Power Station, which provides 292Wh of power for camping, emergencies, outdoor activities, and more.

The HLS 290 Portable Power Station is a Honda licensed product that's been designed with outdoor enthusiasts in mind, but it's also super useful to have on hand for power outages.


Priced at $350 on Amazon, the HLS 290 is one of Jackery's largest portable power stations, equipped with two USB-A ports for charging iOS devices and other small electronics, an AC port for charging a laptop or any other device, a 12V input, and a port for connecting an optional solar panel, which is sold separately.


There's a handy little LCD on the front that lets you know how much charge is left on the battery, and it comes with a handle so you can carry it where it needs to go, from the beach to a night out camping. The HLS 290 Power Station weighs just 6.6 pounds and measures in at nine inches by 7.8 inches by 5.2 inches.


Jackery says the HLS 290 Power Station has enough juice to charge a laptop up to four times, a tablet up to 14 times, and a smartphone up to 17 times. It's able to power a 32-inch TV for over three hours, and a mini fridge for over three hours. Operation is silent, so it's not noisy like a gas-powered generator.


The HLS 290 Power Station can be recharged in multiple ways, including a solar panel (sold separately and coming soon, a carport, or an AC wall outlet. According to Jackery, it takes eight hours to recharge over AC or with the car adapter or 10 hours with a 50W solar panel. It has a shelf life of three to six months before the battery needs to be recharged, so you can also keep it around in case of emergency.

Cant turn down a chance to win free stuff. I laugh however since Honda probably had zero involvement besides paying to have their name stuck on it. A shame considering their generators designed in house are some of the best out there.

What I’m getting out of this post is that if I truly want to survive in the wilderness I need to have this portable power station and my smoothie maker handy at all times.

I'll wager it is the other way have round, with Honda being paid a licensing fee for their name to be used.


Your right, I meant it to say that. Let's chalk it up to being Friday.

Looks like an interesting battery charger and I'll have to do more research on user's reviews.


I did not know that. Thanks for the info.

I’m sure it’s a great unit. The Jackery has stellar reviews. That’s likely why Honda used their unit.

I wish Jackery would also make a battery that can jump start a car with dead battery. You would think that with Honda in its branding, that would be a standard feature.

It’s basically a Jackery unit with a Honda decal.
