How Do They Compare to Generators?
A battery powered electrical outlet is not able to produce enough power to run your entire house. Although they may not be able to run your central heat and air unit, they are able to power smaller electronics. Your television and mini fridge as well as your sensitive cell phones and laptops. They run quietly and many have more than one outlet. They can be recharged by using a wall outlet or your vehicle’s 12V. These power supplies work the same way that our cell phone power banks, just on a larger scale. They have power stored, waiting on you to make use of it, and then work in silence while charging your devices. To learn more about these power supply options, take a look at the most popular choices below.
ANKER Powerhouse Review
Video Test/Review Directly Below
We tested the ANKER Power House 400wH power bank under real world circumstances. We work on the road, traveling in our travel trailer, so portable power is essential in getting work done. Even more important is the noise level our power supply emits. State campgrounds, National Parks and many other camp sites require generators to be shut off at a certain time in the evening. This has been an issue for us as we work in the evenings and early in the morning, yet we are unable to run our generator at these times. The BIGGEST selling point of the ANKER is the fact that it is silent, yet powerful enough to juice up our laptops. In fact, this was the test we ran; how many macbook charges can we get out of a fully charged Anker Power House?
Turns out, the length of output is highly dependent on what is being powered. A 2012 macbook pro battery is less efficient than a 2013 macbook air. We experienced (as shown in video) 2.5-3 full macbook pro (old version with bad battery) while using resource intensive editing software. The macbook air on the other hand can be fully charged 6-8 times depending on which applications are running. An iPhone, power bank, or hotspot can be charged significantly more times.
We really didn’t know how much we would use this power bank, but we quickly realized that it is significantly more useful than originally thought. Whether its charging a laptop in the truck while driving or charging our phones at night when a generator is not practical, the ANKER has earned two thumbs up.
