2. Battery Capacity

The capacity in the power station is indicated in watt-hours. It’s a vital factor. The higher the Wh, the longer it will be used. For instance, a 500W power station has two different models for battery capacity 298Wh and 516Wh. The higher 516Wh allows us to get higher output watts and more recharging times. When you recharge an 80W laptop, it could run for 6.45 hours (516/80=6.45), while the 298Wh is only for 3.7 hours.

3. Power Output

The power station has a wide range of power capacity from 100W to 3000W to meet any needs of devices. If you like to take out a 900W electric grill for family camping, so the 1000W power station should be considered. However, the bigger power the heavier. Select the right one according to the devices you will use outdoors and the portability.
