Thought I ordered clock power strip but no clock. Misleading? Why would it be named clock power strip. Not that hard to add in!
The solar rover 500 is going to be a holiday gift for my parents since they don’t have a generator (we do). Power outages are a part of life in the Northeast, like many other areas. Whether due to strong storms, hurricanes, heavy snow, or just random unexpected issues, we prefer to be prepared. We’ve gifted smaller Power Banks to many family members over the years. We carry them everywhere, so that we don’t have to worry about using up too much phone battery. These Power Stations can do much more.
I haven’t received it yet. Can you tell me where it was shipping from.
Very reliable powerful backup power. We use these for everything camping and even for my CPAP machine. If you want an excellent dependable power backup, this should be your choice. I highly recommend the Solar Rover 500.
As a photographer I find it easily charges multiple phones, tablets, laptops, drone batteries, and camera accessories for all day shoots. Really have not come close to it's limitations in this regard. Charges very quickly and the display is very intuitive. Output is too low for large power tools or a portable heater, but not unexpected for its size. I will purchase the solar panel at some point for longer power outages or multiple day car camping trips to expend usage. Overall a great value and highly recommend.
I bought this for a 3 month camping venture where I lived in my tent while working on a farm. It beyond exceeded my expectations! About every 1 1/2 to 2 weeks I'd recharge it, I'd originally thought to buy a solar panel to keep it topped off but honestly it was more than sufficient for a single gal with an iPhone, tablet, and minimal electrical needs. I think for an off grid living set up it'd be smashing!
Now that I've moved indoors for the cooler weather, I'm very much looking forward to having this little gem for Nor'Easter season! Here in Maine we can often go days or weeks without power after a good storm, I can't tell you how reassuring it is to know I'll have this little beauty charged and ready.
I like its portability and light weight. I bought to recharge my iPhone which it does very well, several times using very little power. I also use it for my Kindle fire. I will purchase the 500 for my iPad and other electronics. These portable power stations are great during power outages and when camping. You need to evaluate the needs of your equipment before ordering your power station
Decided to get this right before Hurricane and got 3 day shipping. Our power did go in and out for couple hours at a time and this was so useful! We charged our iphones and ipads and used a Magic bullet and Baby bullet to blend food for our kids.
Seems very well built (since my 18 month has thrown it on the ceramic tile floor already and no issues) and charges easily. Very good to have this as a backup during power outages or to keep in the car on trips.
We just completed a one-month trip mostly off-grid in our adventure van. We used our brand new Solar Rover 500 to provide us power for our mini fridge, laptops, phones and iPads.
It did really well powering and charging our MacBooks which can eat up power when playing games. I would connect the Solar panels, put them in the sun and plug in my MacBook, iPhone, and iPad. My wife even powered her small coffee maker in the morning although that will use up some charge percentage quickly. I would charge the NtonPower with the solar panels when able, charge with the AC adapter whenever we happened to be using our generator, and also charge with the AC adapter whenever we were driving (place to place) and the engine alternator would power the vans inverter.
As far as the price, I believe I got a good deal. We will see how this lasts. I will update this review if there are any issues of any kind. My wife and I will be traveling full time in our 4x4 van so we will be using the Solar Rover 500 on a daily basis. Let’s see how it goes.
I needed something to charge my phone / tablet and now I recently purchased a small fan so I needed something both USB and AC. I did a lot of research before committing to a power bank and this, it is a great machine for camping trips.
I like this smaller one for going to the park or short outings and I love knowing that I've got two. I'd rather have two than one larger power one. If one went out or became lost I'd have the other one.
Great value for money.
I got this not just as backup power for my phones and toys during hurricane season, but to use at conventions for portable power. I am a creative professional and use my ipad to do art commissions at conventions, so I was looking for a good battery backup for this purpose, which would fit on or under the table and keep my ipad topped up throughout the day. During its first test, it powered not only my ipad ALL DAY but it had enough juice to power my friend's ipad as well, in addition to keeping our phones charged. At the end of the day (I'm talking a full 10 hour day of two people working) it was down to about 30% charge. It took a couple of hours plugged in to top back up. For this use it is perfect. It does not take up much space, it's light enough to carry around, and it simply works. For what I would have paid for an electical hookup for the weekend, I got this and I get to keep it.
I own a number of solar generators and portable solar panels and have found them very useful under a variety of circumstances. I discovered this latest solar generator and decided to give it a spin.
I use solar generators to power work equipment such as computers, a coffee maker, and a small fridge. For that reason, I’ve made a point to invest in good-quality battery chargers that have solar charging capabilities. I also have propane/gas-powered generators, but I don‘t always need something that big or loud. Plus, they‘re heavy and can be cumbersome to tote around.
While I like all of the generators that I‘ve collected, I‘m particularly fond of this new one, the Solar Rover 569wh 500w power station. It boasts one AC 110v outlet, has 60w USB C fast charging, flashlight, and two DC 12V outlet. The power strip comes with it expands the one AC outlet into 3 AC outlets and 2 USB ports. It’s a completely silent and gas-free generator with a pure sine wave output that can efficiently power up even small household appliances.
So far I’ve been able to charge/run my laptop, smartphone, Dometic fridge freezer, and a fan. For whatever reason, not all the solar generators I have can power my laptop. The AC adapter for the laptop is only 65 watts so most solar generators should be able to run it. Anyway, the Solar Rover 500 had no problem running my laptop. This made me very happy!
The generator came with car charging cables and an AC charger so I can recharge it with either a carport or an AC outlet, or with a compatible solar panel. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a solar generator. I think they’ll be very pleased with how quickly it charges and how long the charge lasts.
Was a little apprehensive about buying something without knowing 100 percent that it would be capable of doing the job. Only had this Solar Rover 500 watt solar generator for two days. Charged it up from the wall AC outlet out of the box. And there's a power strip comes with the power station, haven't used it yet.
We also bought a Solar Panel 100watt from another brand for later use while Camping. My husband needed something that would last 3 to 5 days on a camping trip to power his CPAP while sleeping. He doesn't use the humidifier heater in his CPAP but I have no doubt this unit will handle it. After testing it at home with a full 8 hours sleep the Solar Generator did not even drop 1 bar. Probably used about 10 percent. This means he should be able to do the upcoming trips in our new camper without any issues. Great Product so far and I will update after a few months see if product stands the test of time!
This is a really nice and tiny portable power station at a good price. I bought it mostly for entertainment purposes when the power goes out. I hook an 18 inch TV up to it with a Roku stick which consumes around 15 watts and this will power it for many hours. My router/modem is on a UPS backup that will power it for quite a while, so that in combination with solar rover is a nice way to go.
