For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Jackery to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station, which is Jackery's highest-capacity power station option. Jackery makes a range of UL-certified power stations at varying price points.

The Explorer 1000, priced at $999.99, features a 1002Wh capacity, 1000W rated power, and 2000W surge power so it's robust enough to meet the power supply needs of most electrical appliances, making it perfect for emergency backup situations in the home, RV use, camping, and more.

There are multiple ports available for charging several devices at one time. There are two 18W PD USB-C ports, two 12W USB-A ports, one DC carport and three AC outlets. It can power cameras, TVs, computers, communication devices, grills, and medical equipment like CPAP machines.

Design wise, the 22-pound Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station has a handle to allow it to be easily transported, and there's an LCD screen that features charge/discharge info and battery life.

interesting

i didn't know this existed

$$$ though compared to a cheap gas generator, especially when adding solar panels it comes to $1600

a cheap generator is $200

if money is not a factor, this is interesting as hell
One of the advantages of this is that you can bring it into your house and run a few devices during a blackout, safely.

If you want to use a gas generator to power stuff in your house, you need to run it outside to do it safely. So you are going to need to mount it, house it and wire it. Then, when there is a blackout, you're going to have to run around and disconnect any appliances you don't need; or, alternatively, get a bigger generator. And if you get a bigger one, at some point, you can't really fill it with jerry cans, so you're going to have to set up a storage tank. And you may have ordinances in your town that require all this to be inspected. So, not really so cheap.

For outdoor use, a gas generator is a cheap solution; but this is so much cleaner and easier.
