Common Questions About Power Stations

So you might have heard of power banks and power stations before—they're both great options for keeping your devices charged on the go. But what's the difference between the two? Let's take a look.


Size and Weight. Power stations are built to be heavy-duty, so even the portable models are pretty hefty. You're looking roughly the size of a stereo speaker that weighs around 11 pounds. On the other hand, a power bank is much slimmer and lighter, and can easily slip into your pocket.


Output. Power stations tend to have a much higher wattage output, so they can power appliance at 1000W or higher. Power banks, on the other hand, usually use USB inputs for mobile devices like phones or tablets.


Capacity. When it comes to capacity, power stations usually have the upper hand. A typical Anker portable power station can come with an impressive 2048Wh—that's way larger than any power bank can offer.


Recharging Options. Power stations usually have more options to generate electricity, from hydroelectric power stations to portable power stations with solar panels for wider applications. While power banks are mainly charged by wall chargers for now.

Are you in the market for a portable power station, but not sure what size you need? Here are a few things to consider when making a decision.


What Will You Be Using it For: If you just need to charge small devices like headphones and smartphones, a compact portable power station of around 100Wh should do the trick—it's like having a big power bank. But if you want to charge larger devices like refrigerators or TVs, you'll want to look for a more heavy-duty option with 500Wh or more.


Lifespan: The battery is a big part of this, and different types have a different lifespan. LiFePO4 batteries, for example, are heavier than other options, but they tend to last longer. So if you want a power station that goes the distance, you might want to opt for a larger and heavier version with a LiFePO4 battery—like Anker PowerHouse 521, which can last up to 10 years.


Charging Options: Some of the more advanced power stations like Anker Powerhouse 767 can be charged not just by wall chargers, but also by portable solar panels. If you're someone who spends a lot of time working or traveling outdoors, a larger portable power station with over 2000Wh might be just what you need.

It's amazing what a portable power station can do! These versatile devices can power up almost any electronic device or home appliance that runs on electricity—think phones, coffee makers, microwaves, refrigerators, TVs, and more.


Plus, if you're heading out on a camping trip or other outdoor adventure, a portable power station can be a total game-changer. Especially if you opt for one that's 1000W or larger, which can come in handy during emergencies.


With a portable power station by your side, you'll have the power you need to stay connected and comfortable wherever you are.

Unlike wall chargers or wireless chargers that need to be plugged in, or power banks with limited battery capacity, a good portable power station can keep your devices powered up to 13 hours or more on a fully charged battery. This depends on things like your battery type, capacity, and how many devices you're charging.


Take Anker SOLIX F1200 (PowerHouse 757), for example. This powerhouse comes with Anker's InfiniPower™ long-lasting tech and ultra-durable components, and can charge a laptop up to 17 times, or a phone up to 97 times—all on a single full-capacity charge. So if you need a charging solution that's built to last, a portable power station could be just what you need.

They work just as well indoors as outdoors! These handy devices come equipped with a variety of ports, including USB-A to USB-C, so you can easily charge all your devices—from laptops to phones and tablets.


And the coolest part? Portable power stations are built with safety in mind, so you can use them with peace of mind no matter where you are. So if you're ready to go green and stay connected wherever you go, consider picking up a portable power station. Your devices (and your peace of mind) will thank you!
