MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Jackery Explorer 500 Portable Power Station

For this week's giveaway, we've once again teamed up with Jackery to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Jackery Explorer 500 Portable Power Station that's perfect for keeping Apple devices charged in emergencies, during camping trips, on road trips, and in power outages.

Available for $500, the Explorer 500 is Jackery's mid-range power station with a 518 watt-hour lithium-ion battery. Jackery also makes a range of larger and smaller batteries to meet various needs.

The Explorer 500 features a pure sine wave AC outlet, a 12V/10A carport, and three 5V 2.4A USB-A ports. It can provide power to all of your Apple products from Macs to iPhones, and it can also run TVs, fans, humidifiers, projectors, and other appliances that draw under 500 watts of power.

The built-in carport and USB-A ports can be used to power car appliances like coolers, air pumps, and vacuums, along with smartphones, tablets, and other small electronic devices.

A single charge can last for weeks on standby, so the Jackery Explorer 500 is ideal to have on hand for power outages and other emergencies. It can run a router or a cable modem to keep you connected while working from home, or run lights and other accessories when you're camping.

A handle at the top makes the Explorer 500 easy to carry, and a set of built-in fans keep it cool even when it's running at full power. There's an LCD screen on the front that displays the current charge level and the watts being drawn, which lets you track power usage.

I have one of these, they are great. Due to an ice storm, I went about 10 days without power. I used it to keep a few lights on and to charge the phones and iPads until the local cell towers went down. (Did you know, after a long enough outage, cable internet and even the cell towers go down.) You can also get a rather large solar panel to top the charge off. Because the display shows how many amps the device is charging, you can even tilt the panel to get the best possible charge during the day.
