MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station and Solar Panels From Jackery

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 and two 100W SolarSaga Portable Solar Panels that can be used to charge it up when a power source isn't available.

Combined, Jackery calls this its Solar Generator 1000 set, and it's an ideal solution for camping or emergencies because as long as the sun is out, you won't run out of power. With a 1002Wh capacity, 1000W rated power, and 2000W surge power, it is powerful enough to meet the needs of most electrical appliances.

The Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station is priced at $999, and it is Jackery's highest-capacity power station option. Jackery makes a whole range of UL-certified power stations that are available at different price points.

There are multiple ports available for charging several devices at one time. The E1000 includes two 18W PD USB-C ports, two 12W USB-A ports, one DC carport, and three AC outlets. It works with cameras, TVs, computers, lamps, communication devices, grills, fans, and medical equipment like CPAP machines.

At 22 pounds, the Explorer 1000 is heavy, but it comes with a convenient handle to allow it to be moved around as needed. There's an LCD display on the front that features charge/discharge info and battery life details, and fans built into the device keep it from getting too warm.

With an optional solar charger, the Explorer 1000 can be recharged even when power is not available. It recharges in seven hours from an AC outlet or within eight hours using two 100W SolarSaga panels from Jackery. It can be stored, and should be charged every three to six months when used as an emergency backup solution.

Jackery's 100W SolarSaga panels, available for $300, connect to the Explorer 1000 or one of Jackery's other power stations to provide power while on the go. Jackery says the solar panels have a high conversion efficiency that generates more energy and perform better in hot weather than other panels. The SolarSaga panels feature a USB-C port and a USB-A port and can also be used to charge up smaller devices.

Would love to win this and use on camping trips.

Question Macrumors @arn: Is there a page which lists contest winners? Apologies if there is, I can’t find one.

If there is not, why? You don’t have to give their real name(s) but user account names would be nice - I believe it would give a bit more validity to the contests.

Thanks as always for the giveaways.

They certainly picked the right kind of gift for us tech-junkies. I have a similar model for jump-starting car batties. With a DC power strip, I test low-power electronics as a hobby. This thing looks fantastic. The weight of 22 pounds suggests a good solid battery. You really can't have one without the other. The heavier and denser the battery, the better the unit is. If it works as well as it looks, I would like to buy one outright. Not interested in entering the contest. They may sell your email address throughout the universe.

22 lbs is heavy ?
Well, that's relative. 22lb is light for a 25lb weight, but heavy for bucket of chicken. For this Jackery, it's probably in-line with other portable batteries of the same capacity, but it's also more compact compared to other options. If that's too heavy and offers too much power, they do make a wide range of products there lighter.

What was most surprising to me isn't how heavy batteries weigh, but how heavy the thin solar panel sheets weigh.
